kelvin_ik4u Even Supermax Q317 result QoQ show impressive net profit earning spike 235% jump on preceding Qtr, jump from RM 8.3mil (EPS 1.25cent) to RM 28mil (EPS 4.19cents), due to raw material price drop & refurbish plant efficiency improved. That impressive as moving month to month till now, raw material price keep on falling, further improve overall glove maker profit in coming months.

23/11/2017 18:59
oxxxyxxx Disappointed!
23/11/2017 19:04
kelvin_ik4u Kossan this Q3 result show still have light, CIMB analyst raise target price to 9.80, another 20% growth due to expansion plant to Jan 2018, still cheap raw material price, robust glove demand, strong earning drive by significant capacity growth 36% by 2018, laggard stock Vs peer, cheaper valuation vs Hartalega (set 20% discount to PE value of Hartalega, based on PE 22.4 CY19)

Perhaps kossan share price can go up instead if keep till end 2018 or if mgmt manage to expedite it's line expansion earlier than 2018.
24/11/2017 08:13
kelvin_ik4u Kossan declared payout dividend of 5cents, ex on 15th Dec. That consider good, annual payout divident 40% of earning, very close to Hartalega 50% divident payout ratio.

9M17: Striving ahead
■ We deem 9M17’s net profit of RM137.7m in line, at 69% of our and 64% of
consensus’ FY17 estimates.
■ 9M17 net profit grew 9% yoy mainly due to: i) higher sales volume, ii) increase in
ASPs and iii) better cost control.
■ On a qoq basis, 3Q17 net profit rose 0.4% despite minimal increase in sales volume
and lower ASPs. This was due to margin expansion from lower raw material prices.
■ Full commercial production of Plant 16 has been delayed by three months to 1Q18.
We lower our FY17-19F estimates by 2.9-4.7% to account for this delay.
■ Maintain Add with our TP raised to RM9.80. Our TP is now based on 22.4x CY19 P/E.

9M17 net profit grew 9% yoy; met expectations

9M17 revenue grew 20.3% yoy, thanks to 7% growth in glove sales volume and increase
in average selling prices (ASP) (~9% yoy) to pass on higher raw material costs. However,
9M17 EBITDA margins waned to 15.7% (-1.8% pts yoy), due to: i) lower contribution from
technical rubber product (TRP) segment and ii) start-up costs from Plant 16. Still, 9M17
net profit rose to RM137.7m (9% yoy) aided by lower tax rates of 18.5% (-0.5% pts yoy).
Overall, 9M17 net profit was within expectations, at 69% of our FY17F estimate.
3Q17 net profit flattish on a qoq basis but grew 34.3% yoy

In 3Q17, Kossan reported flattish revenue of RM489.2m (-0.3% qoq) as glove sales grew
minimally while ASPs declined 7-8% qoq. ASPs were adjusted lower to pass on the drop
in raw material prices (NR:-12.5% qoq & NBR -12.2% qoq). 3Q17 EBITDA margins also
expanded to 16.1% (0.6% pts qoq), due to better cost control and margin improvement
from lower raw material costs. As a result, 3Q17 net profit increased to RM45.7m (0.4%
qoq) despite a higher tax rate (+2.6% pts qoq) and increase in interest costs (+21% qoq).

Glove division contributed 87% of 9M17 revenue and 92% of PBT
The strong 9M17 performance was driven by the glove division, whose revenue and PBT
grew 23.3% and 15.3% respectively. This offset the weak results of the technical rubber
product division (9M17 revenue: -2.1% yoy & 9M17 PBT: -45.7% yoy), that was due to
the longer time-lag in passing on higher raw material costs as well as lower demand from
the infrastructure sector. Also, the cleanroom division recorded an improved performance
with a 14% yoy increase in 9M17 revenue and 70.4% yoy growth in PBT.

Plant 16 to be only ready for full commercial production by 1Q18
We note that full commercial production of Plant 16 (3bn p.a. - 8 lines) is deferred by 3-
months to 1Q18. This is due to water supply issues and delays in machine installations.
Presently, 2 lines are operational with the remaining 6 lines to be ramped up by end-Dec
17. Also, construction of 2 new plants have begun, with a new 1.5bn p.a. plant to be
ready at end-2Q18 and a 3bn p.a plant to be completed by 4Q18. We cut our FY17-19F
EPS by 2.9-4.7% to reflect the new timeline with a 3-month delay as buffer.

Maintain Add with a higher TP of RM9.80

We make no changes to our Add call but our TP is raised to RM9.80. This is now based
on 22.4x CY19 P/E, (20% discount to our target P/E for Hartalega) from 19x previously.
Note that we also rolled forward our valuation year to end-2018. Looking ahead, the stock
should re-rate given: i) stronger earnings driven by significant capacity growth, ii) it is a
laggard stock vs. its peers, and iii) robust demand for gloves. Downside risks: lower
ASPs from stiff pricing competition and further delays in expansion plans.

AmInvestment Bank Research's Joshua Ng said his top pick for the latex glove industry is Kossan! And global latex glove demand is expected to grow by 8-10% per annum and Malaysia's global market share of latex glove industry is 60% and expected to rise to 65% next year... What do you guys think? the call is yours...
20/12/2017 14:17
kelvin_ik4u Hi All, for those miss out the glove counter share price rally, look beyond Bursa exchange. Study on this Riverstone glove maker (SGP exchange), small/med cap, but highly efficient or equal to Hartalega. This remind me on last 7yrs when Hartalega is a small glove company, unspotted and below investor radar below RM500mil company, but now super powerful, now worth RM 18bil company.

Thanks Hartalega, Kossan & Topglove for making me multi-millonaire :)

Riverstone 3Q17 net profit RM34.3mil (+26.8% QoQ ), zero debts company, net cash position RM112.4mil, ROE 20.7% growth annually (avg 5yr), divident payout ratio 40% - 45% annually, Gross profit margin 27%, net profit margin 18.7%.

In term of plant expansion, glove output increase additional +1.4bil pcs, start commission & fully operate by Q4'17 (Phase 4). This raise additional capacity of 22.5% + full operate on Q4'17, boost net profit earning to RM40 - RM42mil. Expected Q4'17 EPS is raise to 5.3sen ~ 5.6sen. push up TP conservatively to $1.25 based on forward PE 17 (deep discount vs Hartalega forward PE 40).
