NTP World Development rebranded itself as SkyWorld Development Group to better reflect its new vision, mission and core business of providing the ultimate Sky Living experience in a sustainable environment within the city centre. As a direct result, all developments by SkyWorld started carrying the prefix “Sky” in their respective names, and reflect the company’s three brand pillars (SkyWorld Strengths) to reinforce the SkyWorld master brand.
The SkyWorld Strengths are:
1. Value Creation
2. Sky Living Experience
In line with its rebranding exercise, SkyWorld then introduced its first master development – the 28-acre SkyArena development in Setapak. SkyArena is an integrated city development boasting the first multi-storey sports complex in Setapak which will be set in a 2-acre lush environment. Phase 1 of SkyArena, called Ascenda Residences, achieved an exceptional 95% take-up.
Following the successful launch of Ascenda residences, Phase 1 of SkyArena integrated development in Setapak, SkyWorld launched the second phase called Bennington Residences which recorded an impressive 91% take-up (Tower B).
The same year also saw the launch of SkyAwani in Sentul, a SkyWorld CSR initiative as well as the affordable homes series that is in compliance with the Malaysian Government’s affordable housing programme known as ‘Rumah Mampu Milik Wilayah Persekutuan (RUMAWIP). SkyAwani recorded a sensational 100% take-up.
For the financial year ended March 2015, SkyWorld recorded a revenue of RM64.9 million with profit after tax of RM8.2 million.
For the financial year ended March 2016, SkyWorld doubled its revenue to RM149.6 million with profit after tax of RM11.7 million. Total property sales for the financial year ended March 2016 is RM525.7 million.
