Corporate Profile

History

Hong Leong Industries Berhad ("HLI") was incorporated as a private limited company on 5 May, 1964 and commenced as a mosaic tile manufacturer under the name of Fancy Tile Works Limited. It was converted into a public limited company on 13 March 1970 and was officially listed on the Stock Exchange of Malaysia and Singapore (the predecessor of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange ("KLSE") and the Stock Exchange of Singapore (the "SES") on 14 July, 1970.

In 1979 as part of a restructuring exercise, the tile manufacturing operation was transferred to a wholly-owned subsidiary and the Company's current name was adopted. HLI subsequently expanded its business from the manufacture of mosaic tiles to become the industrial and consumer arm of the Hong Leong Group Malaysia. After the separation of the KLSE and the SES, listing on both stock exchanges was maintained until 1 January 1990 when HLI was de-listed from the SES in accordance with KLSE listing requirements. KLSE has since been renamed as Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad as part of its demutualisation.
