Tanjong Public Limited Company ("Tanjong" or "The Company") was incorporated in England on 2 January 1926 as Tanjong Tin Dredging Limited. The Company assumed its present name in 1991 following the restructuring of the Company and the acquisition of Pan Malaysian Pools Sdn Bhd. Tanjong shares were re-listed on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (now Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad) and the London Stock Exchange on 24 December 1991.
On 30 July 2010, Tanjong Capital Sdn Bhd (TCSB) announced its intention to privatize Tanjong via a conditional take-over offer to acquire all the voting shares in Tanjong at a cash offer price of RM21.80/share. The offer became unconditional on 13 September 2010 following the fulfillment of the 90% acceptance condition by TCSB. Consequently, the entire issued and paid-up share capital of Tanjong was removed from the Official List of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad on 29 September 2010. Tanjong's Standard Listing on the London Stock Exchange was canceled on 27 August 2010.
Tanjong became a wholly-owned subsidiary of TCSB on 25 November 2010 following the completion of the compulsory acquisition of the remaining shares not received under the offer.
The Company is an investment holding company of a group of subsidiaries involved in Leisure and Property Investment.
