Breaking up Sime Darby

Breaking Up Sime Darby in-story image Edited

In this eight-part series, KiniBiz revisits Sime Darby Berhad nearly eight years after its 2006 merger and found that it has actually lost value since the exercise. The group’s senior management is already considering corporate spin-offs for some time so KiniBiz then looks at how such a demerger can be done for maximum benefit, putting forward a suggested structure in the process. Then KiniBiz goes through the five core divisions — Plantation, Property, Motors, Industrial and Energy & Utilities — to examine how they have done since the 2006 merger and if they would benefit from an independent listing. Finally, KiniBiz analyses why a demerger of Sime Darby would boost its entire value by some RM20 billion — a third of its current market value.
