Overall comment

Overall comment
Tradewinds Plantations is a subsidiary of Tradewinds Bhd. Tradewinds Bhd was jointly taken over in 2013 by four companies which are owned by Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary. The four companies are Perspective Lane Sdn Bhd, Kelana Venture Sdn Bhd, Seaport Terminal (Johor) Sdn Bhd and Acara Kreatif Sdn Bhd. As the information on the website of Tradewinds Plantations only extends to 2013 and the company was delisted from Bursa Malaysia, it is not clear what happend after the takeover.
