Suria Capital Holdings Berhad (Suria Capital) is a public-listed company on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia Berhad. Listed in 1996, the company was originally established as a financial conglomerate with Sabah Development Bank Berhad and Sabah Bank Berhad operating under its wing. However, following a major corporate restructuring, the company shifted its business focus to a new dynamic sector, namely port services. The strategic move was made possible after the successful acquisition of business operations of Sabah’s key ports from Sabah Ports Authority through a major privatization exercise in 2004. It was one the most significant milestones that shapes Suria Capital’s business direction today. With the acquisition of the ports operations, Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd (SPSB) was created as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Suria Capital. Apart from SPSB, Suria Capital has also ventured into other growth areas related to its core business, taking advantage of the current trends and development. It has formed four other subsidiaries, namely Suria Bumiria Sdn Bhd, SCHB Engineering Services Sdn Bhd, S.P. Satria Sdn Bhd and TriCubes Suria Sdn Bhd. Through these subsidiaries, Suria Capital is now involved in several strategic sectors, namely the development of commercial property, tourism, construction and infrastructure as well as information and communication technology. The most recent development was the establishment of a new subsidiary namely, S.P. Satria Logistics Sdn Bhd which is involved in the trading of petroleum products to domestic and international customers as well as in bunkering and logistics services. With this positioning, Suria Capital as a public-listed company is determined to work further towards achieving better shareholders’ values, while at the same time contributing actively to Sabah’s economic growth, in particular, and the national economic agenda as a whole.
