Malakoff Berhad (“MB”) was incorporated on 9 October 1975 as a plantation-based company. It was listed on the Main Board of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (currently known as Bursa Malaysia) in 1976. A shift in its corporate direction resulted in the disposal of its plantation-based assets in October 1993 and the subsequent venture into the power sector.
On 17 May 2006, MMC Corporation Berhad through its wholly owned subsidiary, Nucleus Avenue (M) Berhad (“NAB”) made an offer to acquire all the assets (other than cash) of MB, including the assumption of all the liabilities of MB for a total cash consideration of RM9,307.6 million (less any available cash balance in MB at the completion of the acquisition).
The acquisition was completed on 30 April 2007, with the transfer of all the assets (other than cash) of MB, including the assumption of all the liabilities of MB to NAB. MB was delisted from the official list of the Main Board of Bursa Securities (now known as Main Market of Bursa Securities) on 18 July 2007. Following the acquisition, NAB assumed its present name, Malakoff Corporation Berhad (Malakoff) on 25 April 2007. On 15 May 2015, Malakoff made its debut on the Bursa Malaysia.
