Thanks to David Ooi for the request to see World Class Benchmarking on KUB Malaysia Berhad (KUBM MK).


Founded in 1996, it’s an investment holding company focused on ICT, Energy, Agriculture, Food and Power.

The Energy segment contributes about 70% of revenue and is focused on import and trade of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). KUB’s second largest revenue contributor is its Food segment, which operates about 30 A&W restaurants in Malaysia (Don’t know A&W? Ever heard of root beer?)

Its agricultural business is focused on palm oil for alternative energy e.g. bio fuel. The ICT segment is focused on services related to building for example telecommunication networks.

The company also does construction related to the power industry and oil & gas as well as property management. However, these two segments currently don’t contribute significantly to the company’s revenue.
