Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad (“KLK”), a company incorporated in Malaysia, is listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad with a market capitalisation of approximately RM23.5 billion at the end of September 2012.
Started as a plantation company more than 100 years ago, plantations (oil palm and rubber) still lead as KLK’s core business activity. Through various strategic acquisitions and sound management, the Group’s plantation land bank now stands at more than 250,000 hectares spread across Malaysia (Peninsular and Sabah) and Indonesia (Belitung Island, Sumatra, central and east Kalimantan). With replantings in Sabah and vast new plantings in Indonesia progressively brought into harvesting, the annual crop production is expected to increase rapidly in the years ahead. Processing of the crop is carried out in KLK’s own mills and refineries into crude palm oil, RBD palm olein and stearin, and palm kernel oil and cake.
