" To create a complete vertically integrated business ecosystem to deliver better live events for the music and entertainment industry in Malaysia. "

Dear investors and shareholders,
I am tremendously proud of our progress this year, we’ve delivered on milestones and seen a growth for this year. We’re achieving improved results and still expanding.

Macpie Berhad is growing to meet the expectations of international live events. Despite a world focused on entertainment from screens, the experience of a live event is still valued more than ever before. Live events have taken center stage with fans overwhelmingly choosing to spend their money on live experiences for music concerts and other entertainment events.

Macpie Berhad has taken notice of the worldwide demand for concerts as it continues to grow. We have already put a significant investment in Macpie Equipment and Macpie Ticketing to further improve the experience for fans and to create a complete vertically integrated business ecosystem that helps us put on better live events for the music and entertainment industry in Malaysia. I am glad to be working with Executive Director, Sean Ng, who introduced the concept for this business ecosystem that has greatly benefited the company.

Connecting artists with their most dedicated fans is so much more than a job, it is an honor. We look forward to continuing to bring high quality live music and event experiences to Malaysians in the coming years and I thank you for your support and investment in Macpie Berhad.
