Investments in Singapore and other countries
The Group also strives to expand its businesses to diversify its asset base and income sources. In February 2020, Yanlord successfully completed the acquisition of then another Singapore Exchange listed company – United Engineers Limited (“UEL”), taking it private and integrating into the Group. UEL (founded in 1912) and its subsidiary, WBL Corporation Limited (founded in 1906), are companies with a history that extends more than a hundred years. UEL is one of Singapore’s pioneer companies and played an integral role in the country’s property development industry since the colonial period. UEL holds a high-quality investment property portfolio in the country, including UE BizHub CITY, UE BizHub TOWER, UE BizHub WEST, Rochester Mall, Park Avenue Rochester and Park Avenue Robertson. Besides the property investment, UEL has mining, agriculture, precision engineering and other businesses in Australia, the United States of America, the United Kingdom and other various countries. UEL has since been integrated into the Group, thereby expanding Yanlord’s international business platform.
Yanlord currently has two residential projects under development in Singapore, namely Leedon Green and Dairy Farm Residences.
