This followed the decision by Bursa Securities Malaysia Berhad to grant the Group a waiver in submitting a regularisation plan after being classified as an affected listed corporation pursuant to Rule 8.03A of the Listing Requirements.

The waiver was granted on 10 June 2022.

Encik Azri Azerai, Executive Director of Malaysian Genomics, said, "I am extremely thankful to the team for working diligently to get Malaysian Genomics out of the affected issuer classification status and welcome this news from the regulator. Our diversification into biopharmaceutical services, in particular the distribution of immunotherapy and cell therapies, has supported the financial performance of the Group. I believe that we can grow together, as a team."

In a recent announcement on its 3Q 2022 performance, Malaysian Genomics reported a profit before tax (PBT) of RM1.96 million compared with PBT of RM0.2 million in 3Q 2021. Earnings per share (EPS) stood at 1.60 sen for 3Q 2022 compared with EPS of 0.19 sen in the corresponding quarter of the previous financial year.

Mr. Sasha Nordin, Chief Executive Officer of Malaysian Genomics said, "We will continue to seek opportunities through collaborations and partnerships targeting new consumer and market segments, including those beyond Malaysia, as we strive to widen our reach and capitalise on heightened awareness on health issues across the region and farther afield. We look forward to introducing new products and markets in the near future."

Dato' Alvin Nesakumar, Executive Director of MGRC, said, "As we have shared before, we are also moving towards offering our products and services through adopting a business-to-consumer strategy to complement our business-to-business approach because trends are changing and technology enables us to reach out directly to consumers.
