WCTB was listed on the Main Market of Bursa Securities and was one of the FBM100 Component Stocks before the WCT Group undertook an internal reorganisation in year 2013. Following the successful internal reorganisation of WCT Group on 8 July 2013, WCTB had transferred its listing status on the Main Market of Bursa Securities to WCT Holdings Berhad (“WCTH”) (Company No. 930464-M).
