ARBB has released a maximum of 1,008,150,000 preferred shares on Dec 18, and shareholders were able to convert into (1) 20 Preference shares convert into 1 ordinary share or (2) conversion price of 20 cent per Preference Share.

In the latest 4 quarters, the company's profit is 26.943m, the number of shares is 246.8m, and the EPS will be 10.91 cents. Calculated at a price of 38.5 cents, PE will be 3.53

charlie82 FYI
1. Q2 revenue & profit included a once-off investment holding trading amount of rm3.314 million --this masked the QTQ profit growth
2. calculation assumed all PA converted (most would be in the future) while using current earnings (totally ignoring future earnings) ---imo this is flawed

funnyguyz hi daytraders.....thanks for your sharing
however, may i know how you know the order book 20 mil USD will be register in Q4?

the order book value may not only for 1 Q result.....it can maybe more than 1 year to 2 years for the revenue

if that the case (order book value 20 mil USD more than 1 year), it may not be as good as mentioned on the PE 2
