Paramount Corporation became the 100% equity holder of Super Ace Resource Sdn Bhd (SAR), the owner of Mercure Kuala Lumpur Glenmarie, in December last year after its soft opening on 15 November 2021. Paramount had bought the remaining 29% collective shareholding of Lasseters Properties Sdn Bhd and Lasseters Management (M) Sdn Bhd in SAR for RM4.85 million cash. The share sale and purchase agreement was signed on 1 November 2021 and the transaction completed on 17 December 2021.
“We saw a need for a 4-star hotel in Glenmarie and Shah Alam to serve the needs of the surrounding industries, businesses, higher education institutions, and residential areas. We expect the hotel to be a catalyst for growth in the area, more so as people have started to travel again, dine out and participate in group activities.”Jeffrey Chew, Paramount Group CEO
SAR established in August 2016. The joint venture between Paramount and Singapore-listed Lasseters International Holding Ltd built the hotel as part of Paramount’s 21.7-acre Utropolis Glenmarie integrated development that includes the Ultropolis Marketplace mall, 1,500 units of serviced apartments and the 10-acre UOW Malaysia KDU University College campus. SAR signed up Accor in 2017 to consult on design and technical fit-out of the hotel as well as to manage hotel operations.
