FROM THE EDITOR

EDITORIAL TEAM

Warmest Greetings from the Editorial Team.

Advisor Haji Ab. Rashid Bukhairah

With the restructuring of Damansara Realty Berhad gathering steam MPM has been extending utmost assistance and co-operation in every stage of implementation. For MPM it is business as usual. We have our KPIs to achieve and issues to resolve along the way. The team and staff have been very positive and focus in ensuring that we clock new milestone in terms of our revenue and profit margin.Uncertainty will be the topic of the day. This comes in our overseas venture, office location and the most lingering question, is the outcome of the restructuring exercise by Damansara Realty Berhad. Not to be derailed by these matters we need to focus on our objectives. Immaterial what the outcome of the above may be, we still need to show the kind of stuff MPM is made of.

Editor Syed Yusof Syed Ibrahim

Believing in oneself can be a strong foundation of achieving the impossible. Thinking out-of-the-box as promoted by Central Region in their recent “Teambuilding Program” is another crucial value and effort on it is very much needed to sustain our stamina as well as gaining more ground in maintaining our No. 1 position in the country.

Branch Conributors

All in all we have to double our effort through our improvisation of our processes and systems to ensure that we outgun and outpace our nearest competitor by being the ultimate No. 1 in the country. All the best to all of us for the remaining period of 2012, insyallah together we can do it.

I am taking this opportunity to wish everyone “Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir & Batin”. Hopefully everyone had a pleasant celebration. I will use this platform to provide the staff on the current development and other relevant matters that MPM are undergoing. Moving on from the last brief, MPM has embarked on the replacement of old equipment with new ones at chosen car park locations in beefing up our operations and also our image. We are also upgrading to Autopay machines for selected locations in our quest to reduce pilferages and improve our revenue. Apart from that we are also assessing our international venture namely Hong Kong and India. We need to ensure that our investment will bear the fruits. Or do we need to find suitable partner or new investor in relinquishing our shares in the entities? This will be a tough decision for us going by the amount and time that we have invested in these entities. Forming strategic alliance will be another avenue that MPM will be embarking in. MPM will need to identify and screen potential partners in forming this strategic alliance which can give us some leverage as well as leapfrog our main competitors. It must be done diligently and meticulously in order for us to reap the benefits of forming an alliance. MPM is currently in discussion with three parties which we have screened to embark on this formation. The restructuring exercise undertaken by Damansara Realty Berhad has caused some anxiety amongst the employees. Retrenchment, VSS and transfer to other entities were the order of the day in topic discussed by the employees. In assuring the employees, I would like to reiterate what Datuk Ahmad Zaki, Managing Director Damansara Realty Berhad had mentioned during the initial stage of this exercise which is “There won’t be any retrenchment or VSS to the staff as the outcome of this exercise”. Hopefully this will eliminate any notion from the employees that there will be a retrenchment or VSS exercise to be executed at the end of this restructuring. I am therefore calling all “Metromites” to realign ourselves, shelve away differences and unite in facing all diversities to ensure that we can survive the volatile market and achieve our set targets. Basing on the current records, we have already cleared the threshold and positive of achieving a new milestone for 2012! We still have another 4 months to go thus we need to warn ourselves not to be complacent and be over confidence but to double all our effort in grinding out the needed outcome and create another history for MPM. Insyallah, with everyone’s eyes trained and focused on the targets, we will have no difficulty in getting to the finishing line with flying colours.
