About Courts

We have the largest market share in Singapore and the second largest in Malaysia1, and are one of the leading electrical , IT and furniture retailers in Southeast Asia. Our Group has an operating history that spans 40 years in Singapore and more than 25 years in Malaysia. We operate more than 70 stores that exceed 1.4 million sq. ft. of retail space2.

We currently have four categories of store formats – Megastores, Superstores, Departmental stores and Small-format stores – to cater to different needs and locations. Recently, we launched ‘eCourts’ in Singapore and Malaysia. With this online sales platform, we believe that we are the only established electrical, IT or furniture retailer of scale in Singapore to offer a complete online shopping solution.

With a broad store network across Singapore and Malaysia, our stores encompass four different formats to cater to different customer needs and locations – Megastore, Superstore, Departmental Store and Small-format store. The majority of our stores are strategically located in suburban shopping malls or in stand-alone locations in suburban catchment areas with relatively high population densities and easy access to public transport.

Over the next two-to-three years, we plan to grow our store footprint by an average of six stores a year in Malaysia and an average of one store a year in Singapore. In addition, we own intellectual property rights to the “Courts” brand in 18 Asia-Pacific countries, We are entering Indonesia in 2014 by building our largest ever ‘Big-Box’ Megastore in Kota Harapan Indah, Bekasi.

We differentiate ourselves with a unique business model that leverages our retail business by offering in-house credit facilities. “Courts Flexi Schemes” allow participating customers the flexibility of paying for their purchases by instalments over a period of up to 60 months.

With a dedicated team of about 2,000 full-time employees in Singapore and Malaysia, we are committed to “make aspirational home products easily affordable.” Over the years, we have therefore been able to build strong brand recognition and establish a large and loyal customer base. In October 2012, Courts Asia Limited was listed on the Mainboard of the Singapore Exchange.
