For FY19, the Group accumulated net profit of RM61.9m (-34.3% YoY) which was below our and consensus full year estimates as some of the reclamation billings were carried forward into FY20. Sales achieved in FY19 were weak at RM331m, with unbilled sales at RM61.3m due to absence of property launches. We understand that it still has RM406m revenue outstanding to be billed to KWAP for the STP2 land sale.

As for pipeline projects, it is still planning to launch projects worth RM1.5bn in the next 2 years to replenish the depleting unbilled sales. All told, we maintain our Neutral call and RM1.00 TP, pegged at c.75% discount to RNAV.
