A Significant Milestone for Oldtown Group

Oldtown Berhad achieved a monumental milestone when the Company was successfully listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia on 13 July 2011. The successful listing of the Company is a testament and recognition of the Company’s achievement and provides a strong foundation for the Company to scale greater heights in its business.
