Shareholders passed the resolution to receive the audited financial statements for the financial year ended 31 March 2022 (FY2022) as well as to re-elect Ooi Jit Huat and Mohd Shakir Shahimi, the directors who were retiring in accordance with Clause 8 of the Company's constitution. Directors retiring in accordance with Clause 113 of the Company's constitution, Mohd Idzwan Izuddin Datuk Ab Rahman and Ku Chong Hong, who, being eligible, had offered themselves for re-election, were also re-elected.

The resolution to allow the board of directors the authority to allot and issue shares that does not exceed 10% of the total issued shares of the Company at the time of the issue to be in force up to the conclusion of the next AGM was also approved by shareholders. In addition, shareholders also waived statutory pre-emptive rights to be offered Bintai Kinden shares ranking equally to existing issued shares in accordance with Section 85 of the Companies Act, 2016 and with Clause 52 of the Company's constitution.

Messrs. HLB Ler Lum Chew PLT was also appointed as the auditors of Bintai Kinden and shareholders authorised the directors to fix their remuneration. Other resolutions passed included the payment of directors' fee amounting to RM108,000 for FY2022 and approving directors' other benefits payable up to an amount of RM10,000 from 16 September 2022 to the next AGM of the Company.

Azri Azerai, Executive Director of Bintai Kinden said, "We would like to thank shareholders for their continued support and confidence in us. We will endeavour to ensure that their interests as well as the interest of other stakeholders are safeguarded as we work to grow the business."

"While the global economic outlook is increasingly challenging, we will continue to leverage on our core M&E engineering expertise to seek opportunities in Malaysia and around the region. We have in recent months also explored the Middle East market, a region with a lot of potential given the growing population and expanding economic activities."

At the AGM, shareholders also voiced their concerns over arrears totalling RM42.0 million owed by Kolej Teknologi Islam Melaka Berhad (KTIMB) to Bintai Kinden's wholly-owned subsidiary, Optimal Property Management Sdn Bhd (OPM) for the construction and operation of the student accommodation at Kolej Universiti Islam Melaka (KUIM), now known as Universiti Melaka (UNIMEL).

OPM completed the construction of the UNIMEL student accommodation in 2019. KTIMB had awarded a 25-year concession in 2016 to OPM to construct and operate the student accommodation at the then KUIM but to-date, OPM has received only a portion of the concession fees for operating the student accommodation and has been forced to use its own funds.

Bintai Kinden's orderbook covering M&E and oil and gas (O&G) projects currently total RM120.43 million. The Company was recently granted approval for a license by Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) under the Standardised Work and Equipment Categories Code, to bid for O&G projects that come under Petronas.
