In Asia, 40 Heroes of Philanthropy Are Making Their Mark
- Forbes Asia

Ruth Yeoh, Executive Director of YTL Singapore was listed in Forbes Asia's ninth annual philanthropy The list features philanthropists who made news with their donations in the past year, but it also recognizes people who have compiled a long record of supporting worthy causes.

Granddaughter of billionaire Yeoh Tiong Lay and daughter of Francis Yeoh, she’s pursued an environmental agenda at the family-run conglomerate for the past 12 years. That includes setting up coral reef nurseries in Malaysia; assisting rural villages in Yunnan Province, China to reduce pressure for deforestation; and protecting the habitat of rare birds in the U.K. But it also means–as head of an in-house, 40-member sustainability unit–prodding YTL companies to cut carbon emissions, recycle waste, use resources sparingly and take other such measures as part of their business strategy.... ›› more

YTL Corp Records Full-Year Revenue of RM16.8 Billion (US$4.2 Billion), Profit for the Period Stands at RM1.8 Billion (US$437 Million)
- Kuala Lumpur

YTL Group Managing Director Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh Sock Ping, CBE, FICE, said, “The 2015 financial year has been a fairly challenging one for our Group, particularly in the merchant multi-utilities division of our utilities business, which remains the Group’s largest segment. Ongoing excess generation capacity in Singapore’s electricity market coupled with lower vesting volumes continued to add pressure to both margins and sales volumes in the merchant multi-utilities business, although this was partially offset by better performance in the water and sewerage division owing to the strengthening of the British Pound against the Malaysian Ringgit.

“In the contracted power generation division, our current power purchase agreement under YTL Power Generation Sdn Bhd is due to expire in September 2015, but we are in discussions to supply power from our existing Paka power station under the short term capacity bid called by the Malaysian Energy Commission. Discussions on the terms are currently ongoing and upon completion, a new power purchase agreement is expected to be signed for the period from March 2016 to December 2018.

“In the cement division, higher revenue was contributed by the concrete and quarry businesses, in addition to consolidation of revenue of a subsidiary acquired during the year, whilst the decrease in profit was attributed to intense competition in the industry and higher production costs.

“Meanwhile, the Group’s hotel division registered better performance for the year under review, due to the higher unrealised foreign exchange gains from our international hotels, whilst our property development business recorded lower revenue and profit on the absence of sales of completed properties, and also lower net fair value gain on investment properties.”... ›› more

Shopping: Retail’s holy grail - FT.com

Retailers and analysts say that millennial females’ anxieties about appearing too many times in the same outfit in their internet photographs is driving fundamental changes in the way they shop.

The Instagram effect on young women such as Ms Pickavance might seem to be a blessing for retailers. Already, they have seen a pickup in sales of separate skirts and tops that can be mixed and matched, plus accessories such as scarves — trends that point to a desire to freshen up their look on social media without spending a lot more.

But the risk is that retailers, already reeling from the shift away from bricks and mortar stores, could end up ceding more of their marketing and promotional roles — and possibly their sales — to sites such as Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook.... ›› more
