The business was renamed GHPB in 1990 after Pemodalan Nasional Berhad took majority equity of the company. Its interests originally were in tropical agriculture but, while plantations have remained a core business interest, the company has diversified into other areas including glycerine manufacture, fruit juices and real estate. The group now has 83 subsidiaries based in seven countries. The main estate and plantations are Carey Island and Banting in Selangor.
In late November 2006, Synergy Drive Sdn Berhad, a special purpose entity with financing from CIMB Investment Bank Berhad, offered to acquire Golden Hope and seven others PLCs "to create the world's largest listed oil palm plantation" company. The merger, the largest to take place in Southeast Asia, was intended to consolidate over 6,000 km² of plantation land.
In November 2007, shares of Golden Hope was de-listed and the company merged with Sime Darby and Guthrie. The shares were then re-listed on the Bursa Malaysia on 29 November 2007 as Sime Darby. With the merger complete, Sime Darby was the largest company in Malaysia by market capitalisation.
