Dear Shareholders, The year 2009 was an exciting one for Putrajaya Perdana Berhad ("PPB" or "the Group"). After being weighed down by the preceding year's flood of challenges, the construction sector began to strengthen again in 2009 in tandem with the recovering domestic economy. Against this backdrop, the Group made strong strides forward on all fronts to turn in a commendable performance for the year ended 31 December 2009. The addition of new road and pavement maintenance subsidiaries to our portfolio did much to strengthen our overall offering and earnings base. Together with our proven track record in green building construction and a bolstered infrastructural capability, the Group is in a stronger position today to deliver integrated building and construction solutions to our clients.

Suruhanjaya Tenaga's green headquarters, Diamond Building, Putrajaya

On behalf of the Board of Directors of PPB, I am pleased to present the Annual Report and Audited Financial Statements of the Group and the Company for the financial year ended 31 December 2009. oPerAtIng envIronment 2009 was the year in which the global economy began to show positive signs of recovery following a period of deep global recession. Unprecedented intervention by various governments to support demand as well as ease uncertainty and systemic risk in financial markets, helped stabilise economic activity and foster modest growth in some countries. In general, emerging and developing countries were further ahead on the path to economic recovery led by the resurgence in Asia. 2009 was also the year in which the Malaysian economy set out on the slow but sure pathway to recovery. The domestic economy registered a GDP contraction of 6.2% in the first quarter ("Q1"), followed by a smaller contraction of 3.9% in Q2 that materialised on the back of a rebound in the external sector. In Q3, the Malaysian economy experienced a GDP contraction of only 1.2% due to a rebound in the manufacturing. In Q4, the domestic economy registered GDP growth of 4.5% as a result of strengthening domestic and external demand. All in all, the Malaysian economy posted a GDP contraction of 1.7% in 2009, stronger than initially forecast. On the sectoral front, the construction sector fared better than most, registering positive growth of 1.1% in Q1 of 2009 following a contraction of 1.6% in Q4 of 2008. The sector then went on to register 4.5%, 7.9% and 9.2% growth in Q2, Q3 and Q4 of 2009 respectively following the implementation of construction projects under the Government's economic stimulus packages to aid domestic recovery. This included a RM60 billion stimulus

package announced in March 2009 on top of the initial RM7 billion stimulus package announced in November 2008. FInAncIAL PerFormAnce Amidst this strengthening operating environment, the Group leveraged on the many opportunities in hand to generate revenue of RM866.0 million and profit before tax ("PBT") of RM69.6 million for financial year ended 2009 ("FY2009") compared to FY2008's revenue of RM864.9 million and PBT of RM39.4 million. The acquisition of the road and pavement construction and management operations of CMS Roads Sdn Bhd ("CMSR") and CMS Pavement Tech Sdn Bhd ("CMSPT") impacted positively on our overall earnings - contributions from these two companies alone amounted to approximately 32% of our profit. The activities of our Construction Division too, continued to strengthen our overall earnings even as several projects were brought to a closure and ongoing projects were carried out. We gained good momentum in the green building segment, while our Property Development Division continued with its efforts to market our energy efficient D'Heron At The Lakes bungalows. dIvIdend PAyments In view of the year's good results, the Board is pleased to recommend a final single tier dividend of 5 sen per share in respect of the financial year ended 31 December 2009. Including an earlier interim single tier dividend of 6 sen per share, the total proposed and declared dividend for FY2009 is 11 sen per share, representing a payout ratio of 31% of the Group's net profit for the financial year.

chairman's statement

CMSPT conducting cement stabilisation work

strAtegIc deveLoPments Infrastructure Capability Strengthened On 12 May 2009, we completed the acquisition of our entire equity stake in CMSR and CMSPT from our holding company UBG Berhad for an aggregate cash consideration of RM75.0 million. Our strategic move to get involved in the maintenance of state roads in East Malaysia has certainly strengthened our existing infrastructure capability. Moreover, it is providing us with a recurring stream of revenue that will help balance out the lumpy earnings from our core construction business. While the operations of these two businesses were already profitable before we acquired them, we believe we can make them more efficient and focused by bringing into play the operational procedures and efficiencies that PPB is renowned for. Over the course of FY2009, we also turned our attention towards high-end infrastructure project implementation to bolster our earnings base. I am delighted to announce that we secured the Tanjung Agas gas supply base and marine services infrastructure development project in Pahang, a significant incentive by the Government to develop Malaysia's Eastern Economic Corridor. Our success in winning our client's trust and setting high standards among suppliers, as well as paying close attention to the detail and quality of this project, continues to make us stand out amongst our peers. Even as we leverage on our strong track record of undertaking iconic jobs as well

as bring our existing expertise in infrastructure development into play, we are strengthening our foothold in the infrastructure segment and opening the door to other such opportunities. Green Building Activities Gain Recognition The year also saw us gaining momentum and recognition as a pioneer in green building construction. As a testament to our commitment to pioneering green and energy efficiency building development, three of our landmark projects, namely the Low Energy Office ("LEO"), the Green Energy Office ("GEO"), and the Diamond Building, were awarded the "stamp of approval" at national level when they were showcased on 2009 stamps and first-day covers highlighting Malaysia's green technology initiatives. We are grateful that our strategy of taking the green route has paid off handsomely and we will continue to leverage on this to drive the Group's performance. With the Malaysian Government advocating sustainable building construction and green technology usage, as well as providing several tax incentives, our involvement in the huge, untapped green building segment bodes well for us. Potential Change to Listing Status Several changes have taken place on the shareholder front these the last few months which may affect the Group's listing status going forward.

Mr. Wie receiving the finalist CR 2009 Award from Star Publications Bhd Group Managing Director/CEO Datuk Linda Ngiam and ICR Malaysia Chairman Datuk Johan Raslan

International Ltd ("PSI") announced its intention to privatise and delist our holding company, UBG Berhad ("UBG"), once it had completed acquiring stakes in the company currently held by UBG's three major shareholders, namely Majestic Masterpiece Sdn Bhd ("MMSB"), Concordance Holdings Sdn Bhd ("CHSB") and PPES Works Sarawak Sdn Bhd ("PPESW"). On 8 January 2010, PSI announced that it had received conditional acceptances from these major shareholders of UBG. Upon PSI completing the acquisition of the stakes held by MMSB, CHSB and PPESW, it will end up holding more than 33% of UBG shares, which will trigger off a mandatory general offer ("MGO") for all the shares not already held by PSI. Once the MGO has been triggered at the UBG level, PSI will also be automatically obliged to make an MGO for the remaining ordinary shares it does not hold in UBG's subsidiaries, namely Loh & Loh Corporation Bhd ("LLCB") and PPB. This will eventually lead to the take over and delisting of LLCB and ourselves. At the time of writing, neither UBG nor the Group have received any notice of a takeover from PSI or its nominees pursuant to the Malaysian Code on Takeovers and Mergers. Upon enquiry with UBG's shareholders, we understand that the proposed acquisition of UBG has yet to be completed. corPorAte governAnce The Board is committed to upholding the tenets of integrity, transparency and accountability in all that we do. As such, we

continue to bring effective corporate governance practices into play to create the utmost value for our shareholders as well as to protect the Group's reputation and stakeholders' interests. Our Statement on Corporate Governance, the Audit Committee Report and the Statement on Internal Control found on pages 42 to 58 of this Annual Report, spell out the stringent internal and external controls and measures in place to ensure good corporate governance practices are adhered to. corPorAte resPonsIBILIty PPB believes in carrying out responsible practices that create value and ensure the sustainable growth of our businesses, employees, customers, shareholders, partners and the communities and environment that we operate in. In 2009, we continued to implement various impactful corporate responsibility ("CR") measures in the areas of the marketplace, workplace, environment and community. Our initiatives included implementing more stringent safeguards to protect all onsite workers and sub-contractors, implementing an upgraded integrated management system to ensure the highest standards throughout all work processes, and undertaking measures to provide employees a more conducive workplace plus better benefits.

On top of this, we undertook environmental sustainability initiatives that included impactful recycling activities and the second run of the PPB Green Lecture Tour series, while community outreach initiatives such as our Charitable Homes and Schools Adoption Programmes, aid to an orang asli settlement in Pekan, as well as complementary infrastructural works, brought tangible benefits to our target audiences. Details of the abovementioned initiatives and a host of other impactful ones can be found in our CR Report on pages 64 to 76 of this Annual Report. As a result of our efforts, PPB qualified as one of the 20 finalists shortlisted from more than 300 participating public listed companies in the running for the recent CR Awards 2009 competition organised by The Star Publications and ICR Malaysia. outLooK And ProsPects Malaysia is expected to emerge from a technical recession in 2010 with leading economic indicators suggesting that the economy will maintain its steady rising trend in the coming months. The construction sector is set to be bolstered further as the Government rolls out several mega infrastructural projects under the 10th Malaysia Plan. These will include the

multi-billion ringgit Low Cost Carrier Terminal ("LCCT") project adjacent to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport; the PahangSelangor Water Transfer ("PSWT") project and the Light Rail Transit ("LRT") extensions project. To spur private sector involvement in the development of Malaysia's economic corridors, the Government had set aside RM3.5 billion this year for infrastructure and basic amenities in the corridor regions. The property market is also expected to rise in 2010 as both developers and consumers regain their confidence amidst strengthening economic conditions. Given this optimistic outlook, the Board is confident about the Group's prospects for FY2010. We anticipate securing several new jobs as we pursue mega infrastructure projects like the LCCT, PSWT and LRT extensions. On top of this, the Group also expects to reap the benefits of having a constant stream of revenue flowing in from our road and pavement construction and management operations in East Malaysia. We are also actively seeking out more opportunities in the green building segment and exploring opportunities in the fast recovering high-end property segment. Even as we move forward to tap new opportunities, we will continue to be prudent about which clients we take on, especially in the wake of the global credit crunch.

All in all, we will focus our efforts on undertaking projects that solidify the Group's position as an integrated building and construction solutions provider. We are confident that our experience and expertise, adherence to quality, on-schedule delivery time, and competitive pricing, will continue to hold us in good stead as we pursue new opportunities. However, be assured that we are not resting on our laurels, but are already working hard to replenish our order book. Even as we move forward to aggressively tender for new projects, we are confident of securing a total order book exceeding RM2 billion in FY2010 from both public and private sector projects. APPrecIAtIon On behalf of the Board of Directors I wish to convey my sincere gratitude to all our past shareholders for your steadfast support and confidence in the Group. My sincere appreciation also goes to the Malaysian Government and regulatory authorities as well as the Group's business partners, clients, bankers, consultants, subcontractors and suppliers for their staunch support. PPB looks forward to strengthening its relationships with all of you as we work together for our common benefit.

Our management and employees continue to display their unwavering dedication to the Group and this is especially noteworthy amidst the many challenges we have faced. I thank them for standing by us and for the immense hard work, sacrifices and worthy contributions they have made. The Board wishes to extend its utmost gratitude to Dato' Ong Gim Huat, our fellow director who has resigned from the Board. We thank him for his worthy contributions and dedication towards the Group and wish him every success in his new endeavours. We also bid welcome to Ms. Monica Oh Chin Chin who comes onboard as an alternate director to Mr. Tan Vern Tact and we look forward to her contributions. As the Group moves forward to explore new opportunities and tackle all challenges on our journey to success, I trust that all our stakeholders will continue to lend us their steadfast support.

Putrajaya Perdana Berhad ("PPB" or "the Group") turned in a strong performance in 2009 amidst an economy on the pathway to recovery. Our impressive performance came on the back of strong earnings from our newly acquired road and pavement maintenance businesses in East Malaysia, as well as our focus on green building construction. Today, we continue to build upon on our position as a key provider of integrated building and construction solutions by undertaking more high-end infrastructural projects.

50-storey Wisma Felda at Platinum Park, Kuala Lumpur

The commercial building for Mr. Mallalla Mubarak Suwaid Al Ameri in Abu Dhabi, UAE

constructIon ActIvItIes on the uPtrend FY2009 saw subsidiary Putra Perdana Construction Sdn Bhd ("PPC") making strong inroads on the construction front. PPC successfully brought several projects to their full completion which included the 368-unit Pavilion Residences luxury service residential towers in Kuala Lumpur, retrofitting works for the facade of the Bangsar Shopping Centre (Phase 2) as well as construction works for both the ICT Data Centre and 4C11 projects in Putrajaya. PPC also completed the six-block 229-unit One Menerung high-end condominium project in Bangsar for Bandar Raya Developments Berhad; the Wharf 11 & 12 project in Johor for Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas; and the Diamond Building project in Putrajaya for the Energy Commission. At the time of writing, projects which are close to completion include Packages 2B(ii) and 2C of Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka's campus in Melaka, and the retrofitting works for the final phase of the Bangsar Shopping Centre, together with the construction of office blocks and an annexe to the shopping centre. The Group has several other ongoing projects, among which is the construction of the 50-storey high Wisma Felda in Platinum Park near the Kuala Lumpur City Centre. While the Government's stimulus packages and its focus on developing low-medium cost housing certainly helped drive the overall growth of the construction sector in 2009, the Group experienced a slowdown in construction activities pertaining to our high-end condominium and office projects. With the highend property market experiencing flattish demand in 2009, we focused our efforts on securing more infrastructural projects under the Government's stimulus packages. As a result, we bagged Package 1 and 2 of the infrastructure development works project for the Tanjung Agas gas supply base and marine services in Taman Industri Minyak & Gas dan Maritime, Pekan, Pahang. Our scope-of-work primarily involves the development of roads for the Tanjung Agas industrial area and we expect this project to contribute towards our 2010 revenue.

On the international front, activities at our Abu Dhabi branch office have been slow with the exception of our overseeing construction of a commercial building for Mr. Mallalla Mubarak Suwaid Al Ameri. While we remain optimistic about our prospects in this region, we are adopting a cautious stance towards new project implementation in light of the financial difficulties that Middle Eastern cities like Dubai have encountered. green BuILdIng segment gAIns momentum Since early 2000, we have built up a reputation for ourselves as for a leading player in the construction of green and energy efficient buildings in Malaysia and we continue to make strong inroads in the green building segment. On top of landmark projects like the Low Energy Office ("LEO") for the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water, the Malaysia Green Technology Corporation's Green Energy Office ("GEO") and the Diamond Building for the Energy Commission, we are working to complete the Sarawak Energy Berhad headquarters in Kuching. This building, which is currently in consideration to be upgraded from an energy efficient building to a full-fledged green building, is scheduled for completion in 2011. We are also in the midst of constructing a RM181.8 million commercial green building on Lot 2C2 in Putrajaya. The 2C2 project incorporates the latest green technology features including the use of double glazing with low E-coating to reduces the transfer of heat into the building as well as ensures optimal energy savings and water harvesting. The 2C2 green commercial building is expected to be completed in 2012. The green building movement recently received a boost when the Government announced a tax exemption for green building owners in its 2010 Budget. The launch of Malaysia's very own Green Building Index ("GBI") in April 2009 plus the formal setting up of the Malaysia Green Building Confederation or MGBC (of which we are a founding member) also bodes well for us. With the Government driving the green building agenda and several attractive incentives already in place for those going green, we

anticipate a surge in retrofitting and new green building projects in the near future. These developments will enable us to bring into play our proven expertise and track record in the development of sustainable buildings. The Energy Commission's Diamond Building is all set to receive the Green Mark Platinum certification from Singapore's Building and Construction Authority. This accolade is apt reflection of our prowess in the green building segment and it also sets the benchmark for future high-end green building construction activities in Malaysia. The 2C2 office suites too, is aiming to set high standards in sustainable development and is currently being upgraded to achieve the Gold Rating under the GBI. Going forward, we aim to take the green message everywhere we go and influence our clients to demonstrate their commitment towards sustainable development. roAd And PAvement BusInesses deLIver strong resuLts May 2009 marked the Group's formal entry into the road and pavement construction and management businesses via the acquisition of CMS Roads Sdn Bhd ("CMSR") and CMS Pavement Tech Sdn Bhd ("CMSPT"). The integration of these

two companies into our portfolio has boosted the Group's earnings considerably as well as strengthened our position as an integrated building and construction solutions provider. Today, CMSR is responsible for maintaining over 4,600 km of roads throughout Sarawak under a 15-year concession agreement (beginning 1 January 2003) with the Sarawak State Government. Using an internationally recognised road maintenance management system, CMSR undertakes routine and periodic maintenance activities. CMSPT on the other hand, is a specialist provider of construction, maintenance and rehabilitation technology for road pavements. Apart from being an environmentally friendly company and promoting sustainable engineering and construction, CMSPT utilises technology that ensures cost savings, speed of construction, as well as improved pavement performance and life span. We remain open to exploring the opportunity to take the expertise of these companies elsewhere. comPetItIve edge shArPened In 2009, we implemented various initiatives to enhance our competitive edge and make us an even more efficient organisation.

ceo's review of operations

Human Capital Strengthened On the human capital side, we continued to nurture our employees into a finely-honed workforce. We invested in effective employee training and development opportunities as well as provided them the tools to help them keep abreast of the latest industry developments. Group employees who were sent for in-depth training relating to GBI certification were able to successfully cascade this knowledge down throughout the entire organisation. Our people are now beginning to have a strong grasp of green building construction and sustainable development concepts which ties in neatly with our green agenda. We also continued to implement effective talent management programmes and offer competitive remuneration and benefits to attract and retain talented employees. This is all the more important given the shortage of skilled workers in the construction sector. Following the assimilation of new subsidiaries CMSR and CMSPT into our fold in 2009, our employee numbers doubled overnight. In line with this, our management team set in place a more detailed and structured human management system while taking greater responsibility for aligning the business objectives and strategies of all our subsidiaries.

Operational Efficiencies Enhanced PPB has very clear cut operating procedures in place and this has made us very efficient. In fact, our operational and cost efficiencies are currently at their optimum level. We know which areas to focus on and are continuously taking steps to improve weaker ones. From risk mitigation and assessment of clients, to operational implementation and handing over of projects - we have built up a solid reputation in the industry and are renowned for our best practices. Having said that, there is always room for improvement in any area and we will continue to uphold and implement effective and prudent operational practices in all that we undertake. Worker Health and Safety Enforced The health and safety of our workforce is of paramount importance and the Group's companies went out of their way in 2009 to provide a safe and conducive working environment for our employees and all those who came into contact with our project sites. To ensure worker and public safety, we continued to install leading-edge safety panelling throughout our highrise building projects, increase the use of appropriate safety systems and step up enforcement activities. We also undertook

site safety audits which stressed systematic and meticulous information and knowledge sharing, plus intensified health and safety training among our workforce. Management Control Systems Integrated We are continuously enhancing our quality control systems to ensure the smooth delivery of high quality business processes, services and products. 2009 saw us integrating all three of our management systems ­ the ISO 9001 quality management system, ISO 14001 environmental management system and OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety management system ­ under an umbrella Integrated Management System ("IMS"). With this IMS in place, we are one of the few industry players to have such a comprehensive list of operational standards. Going forward, our work will now be audited in accordance with international standards thereby making us a more efficient construction company and enhancing our credibility with clients. The year also saw us implementing our very first 5-S Programme at the 50-storey-high Wisma Felda building with maximum safety features in place. The 5-S management system is a set of practices that provide an organised approach to

good housekeeping at workplace. Through tapping the 5-S management system we are motivating our people, improving safety, efficiency and productivity, as well as moving closer towards our goal of achieving Total Quality Management and becoming the first SIRIM-accredited 5-S construction firm in Malaysia. movIng AheAd With economic indicators showing that the Malaysian economy is on a definite uptrend, the Group is looking forward to achieving a much better year. Going forward into 2010, PPB is determined to intensify its business development activities and we will seek new opportunities to bolster our position as an integrated building and construction solutions provider. Success in the building construction market today is dependent on players' ability to integrate a wealth of solutions which now include green building solutions, financial strength, a skilled workforce and technological innovation. Currently not many industry players are able to offer such an expertise so we have a good head start over others with our integrated solutions offering.

As government has increased its spending by implementing several mega infrastructure projects like the Low Cost Carrier Terminal adjacent to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the Pahang-Selangor Water Transfer project and the Light Rail Transit extensions projects, we will work towards securing one of them. We also anticipate our earnings to increase in the highend property segment even as this market begins to show signs of recovery in the first quarter of 2010. We will also continue to leverage on opportunities in the green building sector. All in all, we are confident of securing a total order book exceeding RM2 billion in FY2010. Add to this, with the recurring revenue from our road and pavement construction and management operations, we are confident of growing our earnings base in the new financial year. Going forward, our management team will continue to explore all avenues for growth as well as mitigate the impact of external factors on our business.

I trust all our stakeholders will continue to lend us their support as we endeavour to deliver another year of strong results.

stAtement on InternAL controL

IntroductIon The Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance requires the Board of Directors of public listed companies to identify significant risks and maintain a sound system of internal control to safeguard shareholders' investments and the Group's assets. The Listing Requirements of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad ("Bursa Securities") for the Main Market requires directors of public listed companies to include a statement in the annual report on its status on internal control as a group. Pursuant to complying with the above requirements and guided by the Statement on Internal Control: Guidance for Directors of Public Listed Companies ("the Guidance"), the Board of Directors ("the Board") of Putrajaya Perdana Berhad ("PPB") is pleased to present below its Statement on Internal Control as a group for the financial year ended 31 December 2009.

BoArd resPonsIBILIty The Board of PPB recognises the importance of sound internal control and risk management practices for good corporate governance and endeavors to maintain an appropriate group-wide system of internal control and risk management. The Board is ultimately responsible for PPB Group's system of internal control which includes the establishment of appropriate control environment and framework as well as reviewing its adequacy and integrity. However, due to the inherent limitations in any system of internal control, such system of internal control put into effect by the Management can only manage but not eliminate all risks that may impede the achievement of the Group's business objectives. Therefore, the internal control system can only provide reasonable and not absolute assurance against material misstatement or loss.

rIsK mAnAgement FrAmeWorK The Board firmly believes that risk management is critical to the Group's continued profitability and the enhancement of shareholders' value. Therefore, the Board had embedded in the Group a monitoring and reporting process to continuously evaluate and monitor the principal risks in a formal manner as well as establishing procedures for reporting and monitoring of risks and controls. These initiatives would ensure that the Group has in place an ongoing process for identifying, evaluating, monitoring and managing the principal risks that affects the achievement of its business objectives. Key risks relating to PPB's operations and strategic and business plans are addressed at periodic management meetings. In addition, the responsibility of managing the risks of each department lies with the respective Heads of Department and it is during the periodic management meetings, significant risks identified and the corresponding internal controls implemented are communicated to the Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") and Senior Management.

mAnAgement styLe & controL envIronment Enhancing the Group's ability to achieve its business objectives remains as the Board's primary objective and direction in managing PPB Group. In ensuring that this objective is achieved, the Board will continue to rely on the Senior Management to ensure that the performances of their businesses are within the agreed business strategies. The Board will in turn monitor the performances and profitability through the reports it received and its involvement in operational and strategic meetings. Matters arising which are significant in nature are brought to the attention of the CEO, who in turn, will direct these matters, if necessary, to the Board for its attention.

statement on internal control

In monitoring the performance of the Group, an elaborate annual budgetary planning and review process is practised. This is to ensure that the performance of the various business units can be monitored and benchmarked, and the interests of all its stakeholders are addressed. Well-defined organisational structures and management disciplines further reinforced the internal control framework to ensure its continued relevance and effectiveness. Among the management disciplines were the Group-wide authority chart which provided clear definition of delegated authority to various management levels. The Group continues to maintain its proven `open-door' and `hands-on' approach to allow for the efficient resolution of matters arising and drawing on the experience and knowledge of employees throughout the Group.

InternAL controL mechAnIsm The responsibility for reviewing the adequacy and integrity of the internal control system has been delegated by the Board to the Audit Committee. In turn, the Audit Committee assesses the adequacy and integrity of the internal control system through independent reviews conducted on reports it received from external auditors, the internal auditors and the Management. Significant internal control matters which are brought to the attention of the Audit Committee will be highlighted to the Board. The Group has outsourced its internal audit function to a globally affiliated internal audit service provider firm as part of its strategy to provide the Board with assurance on the adequacy and integrity of the systems of internal control. The outsourced internal audit function focuses on the review of areas which are related to the significant risks of PPB Group. The areas of review are set out in a risk based internal audit plan which has been approved by the Audit Committee. During the financial year, scheduled reviews on the Group's systems of internal control were completed according to approved audit plan. Although a number of internal control weaknesses were identified during this process, none of the weaknesses have resulted in any material losses, contingencies or uncertainties that would require separate disclosure in this annual report.

summAry In accordance with the assessment of the Group's systems of internal control, the Board is of the view that the risks undertaken by the Group are within tolerable level in the context of the business environment the Group operates in and the systems of internal control that existed throughout the year comprising the internal control framework, management processes, monitoring and review processes that can be relied on. During the year under review, nothing has come to the attention of the Board which would result in any material losses, contingencies or uncertainties that would require separate disclosure in this annual report. Notwithstanding this, the Board will continue to ensure that the Group's systems of internal control can continuously adapt to prevail in its current changing and challenging business environment. This statement was made in accordance with the PPB's Board of Directors resolution dated 22 February 2010.

our commItment toWArds heALth & sAFety The Group is committed to the health and safety of our employees and co-workers and all the Group's companies prioritise these matters above all others in their project management meetings. The Group Health and Safety Committee is responsible for reviewing and analysing our entire safety operational structure for possible shortcomings. The committee goes to great lengths to ensure existing safety measures are continuously being improved upon and that stringent standards and practices are in place to ensure the well-being of all parties. Proactive Site Safety Audit In 2009, we carried out 32 Site Safety Audits at eight sites where systematic and meticulous information and knowledge sharing were emphasised. These sessions helped shed light on the many onsite problems project managers had encountered as well as offered practical, proactive solutions on how to overcome similar hazardous situations or practices. To date, many of the best practices picked up from these sessions are being enforced at all sites as proactive measures rather than as corrective measures. Higher OHSAS 18001:2007 Standards We have also successfully upgraded the OHSAS 18001:1999 certification to OHSAS 18001:2007, thereby fulfilling the new and more stringent occupational health and safety standards set by SIRIM Malaysia.

Following the rampant outbreak attack of A(H1N1) globally, we have set up screening points at all site entrances to ensure every worker and visitor is screened and deemed fit enough to enter our sites. On top of this, all our site staff canteens are equipped with filtered water canisters to ensure a good supply of clean water at all times. Over 100 Site First-aiders Onsite To date, we have more than 100 first-aiders spread across all our sites to handle minor injuries and apply first-aid as and when needed. All the Group's first-aiders are required to attend refresher training courses every year to keep themselves updated on the latest techniques. Successful Zero Fatality Record As a result of our stringent health and safety standards and practices as well as the many proactive initiatives implemented over the course of the year, PPB recorded zero fatality in 2009.

Representatives receiving the annual Good Action Award during the 2010 Annual Dinner

Through these activities, our employees were able to foster better ties and sense of belonging which has certainly helped forge a stronger working relationship and team spirit among them. Different activities were lined up for the Group's new subsidiaries, CMS Roads Sdn Bhd ("CMSR"), CMS Pavement Tech Sdn Bhd ("CMSPT") as well as Putra Perdana Construction Sdn Bhd's ("PPC") offshore branch offices over the same timeframe. Increased Training and Development Budget In response to the rapidly changing needs of our clients and intense requirement for better quality products, PPB has progressively increased its training budget over the years. For 2009, more than RM500,000 was allocated for training purposes with some 60% of our workforce benefitting from a total of four training hours per staff. Most of these trainings covered skills and technical trainings conducted either in-house or via external parties. Balanced Staff Benefits Structure To standardise our work practices and ensure all employees receive equal treatment, the Group has revised the employee benefit structure whereby all employees now benefit equally from the scheme. Amongst the newly introduced benefits are the employee hospital and surgical card, and an increase in Employer's EPF contributions to 15% (effective 1 January 2010).

Recognising Staff Contributions To encourage innovation and leadership amongst employees, the Good Action Award is awarded annually. It aims to motivate employees to be proactive and take the lead in implementing innovative ways to improve our workflow and operational efficiency. In 2009, there was a significant increase in the number of awards handed out with 12 employees receiving the award at our Annual Dinner 2010 in comparison to 4 recipients in 2008. Long-service Awards for employees with more than 20 years of services were also presented to 11 employees who have been loyally serving the Group. These awards serve to recognise our employees' worthy contributions from our inception till today where the Group is recognised as an industry icon. Rewarding Academic Excellence The Group also continues to reward the children of our employees who have excelled in the UPSR, PMR and SPM examinations on an annual basis. In early 2010, the management decided to reward the children of our employees who had taken or will be taking STPM or A-Level examinations to encourage them to pursue higher education. This is in line with our vision of making Malaysia a developed country with well-educated citizens.

our commItment toWArds our envIronment Driving the Green Building Movement In line with our mission of greening the environment and driving home the importance of sustainability, PPB continues to spearhead the construction of green buildings in Malaysia. Following the construction of two of Malaysia's landmark green and energy efficient buildings, namely the Low Energy Office ("LEO") Building and the Green Energy Office ("GEO") Building, we went on to complete the Diamond Building for the Energy Commission in Putrajaya in March 2010. This innovative building is targeting to receive the Green Mark Platinum certification by Singapore's Building and Construction Authority ("BCA") in recognition of its successfully passing the most rigorous tier of the four-tier green building benchmark developed by the BCA. Meanwhile our on-going projects, the Sarawak Energy Berhad Headquarters and the 2C2 commercial building in Putrajaya, are possibly upgraded to Green Building status in line with the Malaysian Green Building Index ("GBI"). On 9 September 2009, three of our landmark projects, the LEO, GEO and Diamond buildings appeared on POS Malaysia's 2009 stamps and first-day covers under the theme "Energy Efficient Buildings". This is apt reflection that our efforts in pioneering energy efficiency and green building development have gained recognition at the national level.

Reducing Our Global Carbon Footprint In support of the Earth Hour 2009 campaign mooted by the World Wildlife Fund which aims to reduce to global carbon footprint by switching off lights for an hour, some 130 of the Group's employees including those within four project sites and PPC worker camps, pledged to "total lights out" on 28 March 2009. This move attests to our commitment and seriousness in doing our part for Mother Earth be it individually at home, or collectively at our workplace. For 2010, we had 285 employees who came forward to pledge their commitment to putting their lights out in support of this novel movement. ISO 14001 certification PPC was accredited with ISO 14001: 2004 Certification by SIRIM on 6 February 2009. Focusing on Waste Management In the year under review, we focused our efforts on waste management activities. Waste management training and waste disposal management activities were conducted to create a better understanding of the handling methodology for scheduled and non-scheduled waste. To show that we are committed to walking our talk, we launched a battery and light bulbs recycling campaign at the end of 2009. This campaign aims to encourage employees to dispose of used batteries and light

bulbs as scheduled waste rather than to throw these items away as common rubbish that would end up in a landfill. Numerous posters and emails on the correct method for disposing this scheduled waste were disseminated to all employees. Our monthly recycling campaign has been gathering good momentum even as employees and residents living in the vicinity of Danau Point near the Group's headquarters have begun to participate actively in this campaign by segregating and disposing waste in the correct manner in recycle bins placed outside our premises. The monthly collection from the sale of recyclable items is currently being channelled to KSPPB. Green Education via the Green Lecture Tour To create awareness about the need for sustainable development in engineering and construction, we mooted and launched the Green Lecture Tour in late 2008. In 2009, we went on to conduct a total of six events among local and foreign students at both public and private universities. Where our first lecture tour series focused on the issue of global warming and emphasised the need for green development, our second tour focused on practical applications relating to the construction of green and sustainable

buildings. To showcase real-life green building applications, we incorporated tours of the LEO Building and GEO Building into our lecture tour agenda. Following positive feedback from the universities and colleges we visited, we hope to inspire other organisations in the corporate world to conduct similar sustainable development awareness campaigns and elevate green building standards in Malaysia. Championing Green Building Standards As one of the pioneers of Malaysia's green building movement, we became one of the first few corporate members of the newly established Malaysia Green Building Confederation ("MGBC") in the year under review. The year also saw us sending a team of six employees to attend the GBI facilitator course to gain a better understanding of the stringent requirements of the GBI launched in May 2009. To drive home the importance of green building construction within the Group, we have lined up a series of talks to educate all our onsite employees and workers about GBI and green construction-related matters beginning 2010. Moving forward,

Our efforts to date have included activities such as building crossover, general road cleaning, small pipe and culverts construction and the widening of side drainage areas, all aimed at enhancing the well-being of the local communities.

Enhancing Educational Opportunities As part of our contribution to nation building, the Group continues to provide educational opportunities for the younger generation. In 2009, we increased the value of the annual PPB scholarships for deserving but financially challenged scholars from RM92,000 to RM150,000 and awarded 14 new scholars from local universities and colleges, including some from Sarawak. Our management is also looking to further increase the scholarship fund in the coming year to enable more students to benefit from this programme. Providing Internship Opportunities The year saw 30 trainees participating in our internship programme which seeks to prepare students for working life by giving them practical hands-on experience. With many new projects secured in late 2009, trainee recruitment is expected to increase in 2010. The internship programme has also been opened up to the Group's scholarship holders who need practical training over the course of their studies. Elevating Communities Our philanthropic efforts also extend to ad-hoc donations, and organisations such as the Kiwanis Club of Kuala Lumpur, the Ti-Ratana Welfare Society, Persatuan Kanak-kanak Istimewa

Kajang, Universiti Telekom Students' Trust Fund, the GEL Project E.P.I.C. and the Buddhist Tzu-Chi Merit Society Malaysia. In early 2010, the Group made donations in-kinds to an orang asli community at Kampung Sekukuh, Pekan located within the vicinity of our project site at Tanjung Agas, Pahang. On top of this, CMSR and CMSPT made donations in cash and kind in aid of fire victims of Rh. Gendi Kampung Semilang, Sri Aman whose long houses had burnt down and participated in some other community activities. Proactively Engaging Stakeholders We are committed to engaging with our stakeholders through the transparent and speedy delivery of pertinent information and are constantly improving our website, the primary platform for information dissemination. In early 2009, we subscribed to Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad's announcement feed thus enabling all our public announcements to be updated automatically on the investor relations section of our website. Plans are in the pipeline to make our investor relations section more user-friendly and we have also introduced a new section called "Corporate Responsibility Activities", to update users on the latest such happenings. The year also saw us launching new websites for CMSR and CMSPT at www.cmsroads.com and www.cmspavement.com respectively, thus enabling easier and more convenient access to information pertaining to these companies.
