The Sponsor, Sunway Berhad (Sunway), is an established and reputable conglomerate group with a market capitalisation of RM8.27 billion as at 30 June 2019. Sunway has been reclassified from the Trading/Services sector to the Industrial Products & Services sector, pursuant to Bursa Malaysia Securities’ revamp of the sectorial classification for companies listed on the Main Market. Sunway REIT’s assets are primarily located in Sunway City, Selangor, Malaysia’s first Green Building Index (GBI) certified sustainable integrated township master planned and
developed by the Sponsor. The assets located in Sunway City are Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, Sunway Pyramid Hotel, Sunway Clio Property, Menara Sunway, Sunway Medical Centre (Tower A & B) and Sunway university & college campus.

In FY2019, Sunway REIT made its maiden acquisition of an education asset, Sunway university & college campus, which is in line with the trust’s new growth strategy and investment in emerging markets. Sunway university & college campus is located within the integrated township of Sunway City and is a leading not-for-profit private university with state-of-the-art
teaching and research facilities.

The success of Sunway City is replicated in Sunway City Ipoh, Perak; the first integrated township in Southeast Asia with five FIABCI accolades, where SunCity Ipoh Hypermarket is located. On the mainland of Penang, Sunway REIT owns Sunway Carnival Shopping Mall and Sunway Hotel Seberang Jaya. In FY2015, Sunway REIT added two assets into the portfolio, namely Wisma Sunway in Shah Alam, Selangor and Sunway Hotel Georgetown, marking our maiden foray into Penang Island.

Sunway REIT owns four properties in Kuala Lumpur, namely, Sunway Tower and the remaining three which constitute part of the 3-in-1 integrated development, Sunway Putra, consisting of Sunway Putra Mall, Sunway Putra Hotel and Sunway Putra Tower.

In the Industrial & Others segment, Sunway REIT owns Sunway REIT Industrial – Shah Alam 1 in Section 23, Shah Alam, Selangor, which is a prime industrial hub, that is predominantly occupied by established multinational logistics and manufacturing companies.

Sunway REIT’s key investment objective is to provide unitholders with exposure to a diverse portfolio of authorised investments that will provide stable cash distributions with the potential for sustainable growth in net asset value per unit.
