Activites M.P. Evans Group PLC (formerly Rowe Evans Investments PLC) completed its merger with Bertam Holdings PLC and Lendu Holdings PLC on 2 February 2005. The enlarged Group's assets consist of oil palm and rubber plantations (both majority and minority held) in Indonesia and Malaysia, the latter with real-estate development value, and beef-cattle interests in Australia. The Group's strategy is to exit from its plantation investments in Malaysia within the next five or so years. These assets have, in varying degrees, considerable real-estate value due to their proximity either to the North-South Highway or to conurbations. However, the earnings derived from them are modest and, in the board's view, the time has come when they should be disposed of as and when acceptable prices can be achieved. It is the board's intention to undertake a substantial expansion in Indonesian plantation ventures which should achieve higher returns and will supplement the existing portfolio of majority and minority-held plantation investments in that country.
