The Genting Story The multinational corporation known as the Genting Group of companies began from humble beginnings in 1965. A contractor who spoke no English, but only Hokkien, Mandarin, Malay and Cantonese, the late Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong built his business empire with simple principles: humility, discipline, and conviction. The self-proclaimed “Chinaman Businessman” was ahead of his time in many ways. He adopted environmental measures, built an integrated resort at Genting Highlands and executed his own succession plan in 2003, when he handed the chairmanship of the Genting Group to his son Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay. Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay has since taken the company to greater heights with a successful overseas strategy. The Genting Group has won international awards for its management leadership, financial prudence and sound investment discipline. It is also a corporation that values its employees and gives back to the communities where it operates in. About Genting Singapore For 25 years, the Company and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Group”) have been at the forefront of gaming and integrated resort development in Australia, the Bahamas, Malaysia, the Philippines and the United Kingdom. Today, it is best known for its flagship project, Resorts World™ Sentosa (“RWS”), which is one of the largest fully integrated destination resorts in South East Asia. The Company is listed on the Main Board of the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited. As at 30 September 2012, the Company had a market capitalisation of S$16.7 billion and ranks among Singapore’s 10 largest companies by market capitalisation
