Message from the Chairman

Pol.Gen Somchai Vanichsenee
Chairman of the Board of Directors

Dear Shareholders

We took a journey through the past year with pride as Plan B’s business experienced uninterrupted growth thanks to our business model that focuses on enhancing the variety of media offering as well as extending the service coverage of out-of-home media to align with the fast pace of advertising media industry and meet the needs and wants of consumers with urban lifestyles.

Besides our commitment to business development, the Board of Directors and executives foster a mindset of sustainability that spells out concerns for economic, social and environmental impacts from undertaking our business. Plan B ensures proper planning in every function in the organization to lay a strong foundation for sustainable development. The Company encourages the employees to take responsibilities and support activities that are beneficial to the society as well as prevent any negative social impact from our business undertaking. For example, we initiated a project to make use of vinyl material left from billboard production by passing them to communities in order that they can make different useful items from the vinyl such as bags to be sold for extra income or roofs for children playgrounds in schools in the neighborhood. This project helps improve the quality of life of the people and the society as the Company continues to grow.

Plan B has a strong intention to conduct its business under good corporate governance principles in order to attain sustainable growth in the long run. Plan B adheres to management principles under proper business ethics with the best interest of all stakeholders at heart and promotes social and environmental responsibility. According to the Thai Institute of Directors (IOD), Plan B received “Excellent” rating and ranked among the top quartile for listed companies with market capitalization of THB 10,000 million and over. Additionally, we are honored to be included among Top 70 in ASEAN CG Scorecard in 2018 which reflects our business undertaking that meets international standards. This helps gain trust among investors both local and international including all stakeholders in the long run. Moreover, Plan B was also certified as a member of the Private Sector Collective Action Coalition Against Corruption Council in the past year.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, executives and employees of Plan B Public Company Limited, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude toward shareholders, government agencies, customers, business alliances as well as all employees for being a great support of the Company to generate returns for shareholders in the long term and a driving force to develop out-of-home media industry and the society in a sustainable manner.
