Managing our financial capital

We have a robust financial management strategy that assesses the requirement of funds for sustainable business operations as well as investments towards growth opportunities. Our focus is on delivering sustainable value to our stakeholders despite economic challenges or industry upheavals. Regular investments are made in our manufacturing and intellectual capital to deliver quality products to our customers; human and social capital for the well-being of our employees and communities; and natural capital for promoting environmentally responsible behaviour. These investments are made in a carefully balanced and calibrated manner to achieve financial objectives.

We ensure adequate liquidity, optimal cost of funds and maintain healthy gearing ratios. Our aim is to maintain a strong balance sheet through proactive liability management. We also review all our investments based on our stringent capital allocation framework to maximise shareholder returns
