Taujudin should immediately apologize to MRCB-GK for misleading the press when he lied that all payments had been paid when due and making out that MRCB - GK had been falsely accursing Prasarana of dragging payments. Prasarana will be lucky if they don't get sued for malicious slander. Prasarana should pay its not for Contractors to fund the construction no matter the size of the construction companies. I have no doubt MRCB-GK are incurring about 165,000 a day improperly funding the Project for Prasarana. I trust Prasarana will do the right thing and cover MRCB-GK for their interest costs.

Haha the return of UMNO warlord.
Tajuddin said MRCB-George Kent was alleged to have put pressure on their subcontractors to reduce the contract value.

“Reducing the value of the contract to bring down the cost, isn’t fair to the subcontractors. As a chairman, I cannot keep quiet and allow that to happen, I must intervene,” he said in response to reports that he had interfered with appointments of sub-contractors.

Tajuddin said he cared about the participation of bumiputera contractors. “It is a policy which we need to support,” he said.

Non Bumi company very hard to get new contracts.
UMNO or PH also useless. All corrupted.

Malaysia is the 2nd most corrupted country in the world.

So Tajuddin "negotiated" a price with the contractors and MRCB-GK has to take them on when they are a fix price contractor. I bet he did! MRCB-GK had to renegotiate their prices which likely left them with insufficient excess slush money to buy Taujuddin his usual coffee. So he's now crying. I bet he is!

Issues are common when it involves politicians. The BOD of GKent are not shy of well-connected big shots as well.SBB to keep the price above support level. Good signs.

With the current Covid-19, even if there is an election this year, I won't go and vote. Who ever win, no difference. Government can change again anytime.

The AGM minutes mention about acquiring companies in Europe and Asia for technology, products amd market.

Anyway it is good to have credit line ready if such opportunity present itself.

I believe they are expecting to win some new projects soon, no reason to borrow so much for nothing.

So with the 500 millions Islamic debt meaning the company liabilities or loan is more than Cash in hand now. They need the money to pay for LRT3 sub contractors.

@RainT

Maybe this RM600m susuk is for them to branch out to new projects not related to gov?

If you look at it from a scuttlebutt point of view, and from the June agm, everyone should thank sslee. His writing has been noted, recorded and lit a fire under gkent ass. All duly noted and recorded.

Latest project win is 40m for Sabah Sarawak, pahang, kelantan, kedah and perlis. Yes 600,000 meters over 2 years is a tiny amount, but the applications and future it presents shows that the pilot project works
And once deployed will be an exciting day moving forward.

As for the sukuk usage, I believe only 300m from gkent will be for paying subcon(300m more from mrcb) which will be more than enough. Getting A+ rating means the rates will be reasonably low.

More importantly is gkent expansion overseas with 15 new territories grabbed by Honeywell, including south korean, taiwan, and Thailand. They are spending money to do mergers and acquisitions in Europe and Asia to grow this market moving forward. This is a good market to be in especially if you already have the factory and technology involved. 200 million is expected to be used for this side of the expansion.

Doing government work is difficult especially if you want to do things the proper way.

But I think gkent is going about it the right way, and the value of the company moving forward.

As for share buybacks, if total up all the share buybacks from 2019 until today versus the share price at this moment, I think you can say that gkent has been saving us a lot of money, unlike topglove share buyback.

Share buy back just to support the price from dropping lower.
