Optimax’s Plans To Emphasie On Paediatric Eye Care Going Forward

Optimax Holdings Bhd, a leading eye specialist provider, is pleased to announce today that all the resolutions tabled at the Company’s second Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) and Extraordinary General Meeting (“EGM”) were passed at a virtual meeting.

Shareholders passed Optimax’s audited financial statements for the financial year ended 31 December 2021 (“FY2021”) presented at the AGM and re-elected Ms. Tan Sing Yee (“Sandy Tan”), Mr. Yap Ping Hong, Dato’ Seri Dr. Chen Chaw Min, and Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Mohamad Noor Bin as members of the board of directors.

The shareholders also approved the special resolution for the proposed adoption of a new structure to govern its internal affairs and a new management approach within the company to assist the transfer of its listing to the Main Market of Bursa Securities from ACE Market.

Ms. Sandy Tan, Chief Executive Officer of Optimax, said: “We are happy to receive the overwhelming support of our shareholders through the passing of the special resolution. The Main Market of Bursa Securities from ACE Market will mark another significant milestone in the achievement of Optimax after our listing on the ACE Market of Bursa Securities on 18 August 2020.

In recent years, the demand for eye-specialist been moving on an upward trend. Optimax is looking to capitalize on the rising demand, as it is expected to continue to rise moving into 2022.

“We are optimistic about carrying out our expansion plans this year, even if we are still aware of the unstable COVID-19 situation. In order to reach more patients and expand our geographical footprint, we are establishing more satellite clinics and enlarging our ACC network to connect the major states.

Additionally, we have a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) in place for the development of a Kempas private eye hospital in Johor with Sena Resources Sdn. Bhd. and Kempas Eye Specialist Hospital Sdn. Bhd. (“Kesh”). When the Kempas private eye hospital is fully operating, we anticipate that it will be able to meet the anticipated rise in demand for eye care services from our country as well as nearby nations like Singapore and Indonesia.

Moving forward, Optimax will also emphasise our services as a paediatric eye specialist. It is not surprising that children will be more likely to experience short-sightedness given the preceding MCO and the protracted stay-at-home orders which have an impact on our everyday life.

The rising use of screens on electronics like phones and televisions by children has negatively impacted their eyes, making children’s short-sightedness a new endemic in Malaysia. Due to our skilled and licenced optometrists and eye specialists, as well as our access to cutting-edge technology, Optimax is well-positioned to take the required action to solve this. Therefore, we hope to lead the battle against this new endemic by providing the solution and services to those affected”.

Among the other resolutions that were passed included the approving fees, remuneration, and benefits to members of the Board, the re-appointment of KPMG PLT as auditors of the Company, and the authority to issue shares.
