ABOUT THE AWARDS
The Malaysia Developer Awards (MDA) combine the prestige and know-how of the International Real Estate Federation FIABCI Malaysian Chapter, with the might of Malaysia’s most trusted omni-channel media, Star Media Group, to bring you an accolade that is set to be the ultimate benchmark of excellence in the Malaysian property development landscape.
REQUIREMENTS & CATEGORIES
I. Top-of-the-Chart Awards
By Invitation Only
TOP 10 (for Market Cap RM1 billion and above)
TOP 10 (for Market Cap below RM1 billion)
Listed on Bursa Malaysia
The Top-of-the-Chart Awards are divided into two tiers to even out the playing field between the bigger property developers and their smaller counterparts. This provides the opportunity for medium and small property developers to be recognised, as they’re often left in the shadows of companies that were able to transact at higher levels. By taking financial performance as well as a host of other qualitative measures into account as the criteria to assess the listed property companies, only the best performing companies will be ranked in the Top 10.
How to participate?
Property companies listed on Bursa Malaysia will be financially assessed based on 3 years’ audited financial reports to gauge their income, profitability, stability, sustainability, and transparency.
The companies audited will be divided into two categories:
(1) market capitalisation of RM1 billion and above
(2) market capitalisation below RM1 billion.
Selected potential recipients will then be invited to provide additional information and documents for the qualitative component, which carries 30% of the total assessment. The areas of focus will be on Placemaking Ingenuity, Creative Digitalisation and ESG Initiatives. (Deadline for submission is 15 July 2022).
