balvin71 Once announce, should go beyond RM2......that is my hope. :)
24/05/2017 07:53
helloworld123 49% is a very big chunk for a minority stake, meaning FSP will have a strong voice in all management decision-making processes. This is extremely positive for the future of DRB/Proton! Whether the share price up or down is up to the market to decide.

rr88 Market action in the hours prior to suspension tells a thousand stories for experienced traders and they are not good.
24/05/2017 08:01
Buy1sell2 I think will go up and then drop back...after that maybe only rebound a bit. Why I say that?

1. After suspended ...a lot of contra players need to get the hell out as they are worried they are unable to pay for their purchase. Some are holding and ripe time to sell.
2. Sell on news...most will sell after the news since it is near peak.
3. LTH is happily selling. LTH is holding a lot of stocks. How much are they going to sell? That is the question mark. So cannot happily chase...why LTH still want to keep selling. It is just like OPEC and US Shale oil. We OPEC want to price to go up...so we buy. But the LTH Shale oil keep selling it down when the price want to go up. So? So will win this sell and buy war? Will wait and see.

Just my opinion. So if got profit better take. Don't be greedy. Learned my lesson at iwcity.

Also, bravo to the edge for having published the news but don't that consider insider news?......something to ponder
24/05/2017 08:18
ding dong epf too like fgv...and now LTH and KWAP keep on selling fgv indicating worst thing to come
24/05/2017 08:18

24/05/2017 08:19
helloworld123 Good, those who want to own shares can get in at a lower lower price!
24/05/2017 08:20
titus kinda agree with buy1sell2. Announcing the FSP is indeed a good news but it does not immediately take away all proton problem. We also not sure what the actual deal. Well, all the best to those still holding. Hope you all continue to huat. If there is opportunity, will go in for short trade.
24/05/2017 08:21
fl888 If you have been a trader,remisier, or investment banker,or banker before, you will know Big Players like LTH, MRCB,PNB etc will never loose when they sell or buy as they are merely putting in left or right pocket only and there is no transparency in their dealings other than big connections,,,.

isn't it inside trading?
24/05/2017 09:15
Beary Geely would be foolish to accept a 49% stake knowing that Proton is in a desperate life or death situation.

If that is true, the ketuanan policy will remain in Proton.

Not good for Proton but at least it is better than no deal for DRB.

DRB...D' Raging Bull is still alive and kicking.
24/05/2017 09:19
mysaham DRB will dispose Proton and Proton will no longer be burden to DRB. So, DRB share will move up.
24/05/2017 09:24
roundcateye Based on the current situation, the best scenario is Geely 49%, DRBHCOM 31% and Government 20%. Shah Alam plant is closed down to release the land value. Lotus is sold to Geely as separate business dealt. Everyone will be happy: BN will not be blamed for selling the ownership of national asset, DRBHCOM release from the debt-generator, Geely get what he want. Minor shareholders will be happy as well.

ahlairich sell on news mah. earn then run lah why care about their shareholding :P
24/05/2017 09:30
LOO99 the important is what the reaction of the FM n Big Investor.. retailers n contrarian like us cant do nothing the stock price.. they just panic to sell when price down and chasing when price going up

vegebotak the news stated , Geely took 51% and Govt pump additional 1.7B.

Geely and Proton to walk down the aisle — sources
TheEdgeWed, May 24, 2017

KUALA LUMPUR: The two-horse race between China’s Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd and France’s Groupe PSA to see who will emerge as the foreign strategic partner (FSP) for Proton Holdings Bhd is nearing its end, with Geely the ultimate winner, according to sources.

DRB-Hicom Bhd requested yesterday to suspend the trading of its shares today, pending the release of a material announcement, which is highly anticipated to be the new FSP. Its shares settled at RM1.68 yesterday, one sen or 0.6% higher, which valued the group at RM3.248 billion.

The counter jumped to a two-year high of RM1.82 last Wednesday, immediately after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s visit to China. Citing sources, The Edge Malaysia reported in its May 15-May 21 publication that Malaysian business tycoon Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhary, who controls DRB-Hicom, also visited China during the period.

It is understood that under the deal, DRB-Hicom will give away a controlling stake in Proton, with Geely possibly ending up with a simple majority of 51% in the ailing national carmaker. This contradicts Proton’s previous statement that the majority stake will remain with a local partner.

But even if Groupe PSA is chosen, it is understood that the French carmaker would also want a controlling ownership. Regardless, some quarters have speculated that Geely may allow Proton to retain much of its operational independence, given the way it handled its takeover of Volvo from Ford Motor Co back in 2010.

Reports on who would “marry” Proton have been mixed so far. Geely was at one time said to be out of the race after Geely president An Conghui said in March that the group has withdrawn its bid to acquire an equity stake in Proton, though DRB-Hicom announced all bids were still being evaluated at the time.

Groupe PSA losing out, however, would not come as a surprise, as the absence of Groupe PSA’s anticipated strategic partnership deal with Proton during French President Francois Hollande’s official visit to Malaysia back in April was a rather strong hint that they would be out of the picture.

Proton is supposed to announce an FSP before June this year to support its turnaround plan — a condition set by the Malaysian government before it gave Proton a RM1.25 billion loan back in 2016. Moreover, sources told The Edge Malaysia that the government had agreed to pump in an additional RM1.7 billion into the company.

Pundits believe the right FSP is key for Proton to turn around, and to mitigate the immediate impact of losses on DRB-Hicom. In DRB-Hicom’s financial year ended March 31, 2016, Proton registered RM1.426 billion in net losses.

Performance-wise, Proton has for the first time fallen to the fourth place in terms of market share in Malaysia in the first four months of this year, at 13.4%, lagging behind Perodua, Honda and Toyota.

Proton sales fell month-on-month for four consecutive months. From 7,207 units in January, it dipped to 6,099 in February, 6,070 in March and 5,600 in April, despite the introduction of three new models in the market last month.

The FSP is one of the few ways — if not the only one — for Proton to survive without acquiring more debt. Most of the first of the RM1.25 billion loan it obtained from the government was immediately used to pay the huge sums it owed its vendors. And Proton still has an upcoming RM260 million repayment due on its RM840 million Islamic medium-term notes this year.

The Proton saga is one that will be closely watched — the government is unlikely to fork out any more money to patch the leaks without facing harsher criticisms.

Meanwhile, the general election looms near, and the long-term future of Proton’s 12,000 employees, together with another 50,000 employed by its vendors, will need to be carefully managed.

Buy1sell2 Yeah...I agree with Beary..49% did not augur well for Geely. They should have at least 51% to be able to make decision and control Proton board and top management. Having a 49% is still a problem for them as Proton still have control and any mis-management cannot be avoided by geely.
24/05/2017 09:49
helloworld123 The moment drb/proton/govt. agreed to accept a fsp means M'sia has lost control of proton - which is the best thing since sliced bread!
