Message from Managing Director
On behalf of the Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to present an outline of Toyota Tsusho (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (“Company” or “TTMSB”) overall performance and major corporate activities undertaken by the Company for the financial year ended 31st March 2016.

Financial Review

Last year was indeed a challenging year with continuing uncertainties in the global economy, and at home, the Malaysian economy was plagued by the weakening of the Malaysian currency against major currencies coupled with poor consumer demand. Despite such uncertainties, the Malaysia economy continued to record a GDP growth of 5.0% in 2015 which was 1.0% lower compared to 6.0% in 2014.

The Company, on the contrary, recorded higher sales turnover of RM1.905 billion for the financial year ended 31st March 2016 which was 2.6% marginally higher compared to RM1.854 billion of the previous year in spite of the global economy uncertainties and fallen GDP growth in Malaysia.

Major corporate activities undertaken by the Company in 2015/2016

On 2nd October 2014 the Company incorporated a new company called Asahi Aero Malaysia Sdn Bhd (“AAM”) to undertake the business of manufacturing aero-space parts and related business. On 30th January 2015 our parent’s company Toyota Tsusho Corporation, Japan (“TTC”) and Asahi Kinzoku, Japan entered into a JVA with TTC owning 49% shares of AAM.
