The Berjaya Group (formerly known as the Inter-Pacific Industrial Group Berhad and Raleigh Berhad; Stylised as BCorp) is a Malaysia-based corporation which controls a wide array of businesses, including resorts, gambling, f&b and property.
On May 26, 2010, the Berjaya Group Berhad was added to the Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) Malaysia Index.
On February 23, 2012, the company's chairman, Vincent Tan, decided to step down from his position, passing it to his son, Robin Tan.
In the year 1984, the company's sole founder, Vincent Tan Chee Yioun, acquired a significant controlling stake in the Berjaya Industrial Berhad (formerly known as Berjaya Kawat Berhad and now known as Reka Pacific Berhad) from the founders Broken Hill, Australia and National Iron & Steel Mills, Singapore. The shareholding change also resulted in a major change in the business, direction and the dynamic growth of a diversified conglomerate under the flagship of Berjaya Corporation Berhad.
In 1988, following a major restructuring, Berjaya Group Berhad became the holding company of Reka Pacific Berhad.
Inter-Pacific Industrial Group Berhad (formerly known as Raleigh Berhad) was founded in 1967 as a manufacturer of bicycles. In 1969, the organization gained official listing on Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad.
