Challenges Being Overcome
Tricubes received the greatest criticism from the general public who questioned the need for government bodies to pay for sending emails, during the MyEmail project back in 2012. There were also speculations as to whether the funds would be coming from the Malaysian Government but the company has since clarified that the figure represents the investment Tricubes would have made from the project. Having appealed to Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad in 2012 when the company’s proposed regularization plan was rejected. Despite this obstacle, Tricubes was steadfast in powering forward, as the company was still able to continue its operations and business.
