the following assets and business:
a. PJ Factory including goodwill RM120,340,000 (Note 1)
b. Manufacturing and Business Fixed Assets RM 28,960,000
c. Unfinished Goods/Inventory RM 6,000,000
TOTAL RM155,300,000
Note 1 -The PJ Factory has been held by the Company since 1961.

Rationale
In line with the Vendors’ strategy to deliver sustainable future growth, the Vendors will be consolidating
their MILO operations in the factory in Chembong, Negeri Sembilan ("Chembong Factory") in second half
of 2019, with the aim of establishing the factory as a MILO Manufacturing Centre of Excellence for Nestlé.
To facilitate this strategy, the Vendors will be moving all existing MILO manufacturing assets in the PJ
Factory to the Chembong Factory. This will establish the Chembong Factory as the largest MILO factory
in the world.


Utilisation of Proceeds
The proceeds of approximately RM 100,000,000 from the Disposal will be utilised by end of 2019 to
establish the MILO Manufacturing Centre of Excellence in the Chembong Factory and the balance of the
proceeds (net of disposal related expenses) will be utilised by end of 2019 to reduce bank borrowings and
intercompany debts.

3iii Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad - Exiting the Chilled Dairy Business


INVESTMENT HIGHLIGHTS
Disposal of chilled dairy business to Lactalis group for a cash consideration of RM155.3m
We are supportive of the disposal as the chilled dairy business outlook is expected to be challenging
Proceeds from the disposal to be invested to further expand the MILO business and pare down debts
Maintain NEUTRAL stance with a revised target price of RM133.60
Disposal of chilled dairy business. Nestlé (Malaysia) Bhd (Nestlé) is disposing of its chilled dairy business to French dairy giant, the Lactalis group for a cash consideration of RM155.3m. The disposal comprised of the agreement to sell: (i) the business of manufacturing chilled dairy products and cold sauces; (ii) the packing of milk powder; (iii) manufacturing fixed assets used in these businesses and; (iv) its Petaling Jaya factory. Nestlé will record a one-off gain of approximately RM27.0m which is expected to be recognised across FY18 and FY19 as the disposal is expected to be fully completed by 1st of July 2019.

Challenging outlook for chilled dairy business. Historically, the chilled dairy business contributed about 2.0% of the group’s total revenue. The business comprises of drinkable and spoonable yogurt products mainly led by BLISS, BLISS PLUS, Nestlé Natural Yogurt and Nestlé Fat Free Yogurt (refer to Figure 1). For FY17, the business recorded a decline in revenue by -8.6%yoy to RM106.1m. We expect the outlook for the segment to remain challenging in view of the intense competition and rising raw material costs.

Reinvestment in MILO plant in Chembong. RM100.0m of the total proceeds will be utilised to: (i) further upgrade production facilities; (ii) improve operational efficiencies and; (iii) scale up capacity of MILO plant in Chembong in 2HFY19. These improvements will result in the plant becoming the biggest MILO Manufacturing Centre in the world which will help Nestlé to meet growing local and export demand. At present, the plant supplies MILO to the local market as well as exports to over 20 countries.

Remainder of the proceeds to be invested in paring down debts. The remainder of the proceeds of about RM50.0 will be used to reduce the bank borrowings and intercompany debts. Currently, Nestlé has total borrowings of RM607.2m. We estimate finance costs to be reduce by between RM5.0m to RM5.5m as a result of the reduction in borrowings.

Marginal FY19 downward earnings adjustment. As the acquisition is due to be completed by 1st of July 2019, we are making no changes to our FY18F earnings at this juncture. As for FY19F, we have adjusted our FY19 earnings downwards by –0.9% after taking into consideration the loss of earnings contribution from the chilled dairy business and lower finance costs. While we expect earnings to be slightly impacted in FY19 from the loss of earnings contribution from the chilled dairy business, we expect that it will be mitigated by positive earnings accretion contributed by improvement in: (i) operating efficiencies and; (ii) capacity of MILO production in Chembong. Premised on the latter, we expect future contribution from MILO to pace up the earnings growth of Nestlé from FY20 onwards.

Maintain NEUTRAL stance with a revised TP of RM133.60. All in, we are supportive of the group’s decision to exit the chilled dairy business as the segment outlook is expected to remain challenging. The move also allows Nestlé to focus on growing its key brands such as MILO. In the near term, we anticipate subdued 4QFY18 sales growth due to the temporary transition in spending after the end of tax-holiday period. Nevertheless, over a longer term horizon, we believe that the earnings growth to remain stable as : i) prices of its products will not be significantly different under the new SST; ii) continuous improvement in its market share and; iii) stabilizing prices of agricultural commodities such as sugar, cocoa and coffee beans. All in, we maintain NEUTRAL stance with a revised target price of RM133.60 (previously RM132.32). Our target price is based on dividend discount model with the assumption that required return on equity is of 5.0% and sustainable dividend growth rate of 2.4%.

stockraider Ok to be fair raider did not go into detail analysis , when making the sweeping comment, that epf net position is disposing which in fact epf has increased by 1.81m units or 10.4% loh...!!

Raider apologise for that loh....but raider is not dishonest loh....in fact raider says & give the mechanism of confirming the epf position loh....!!

But put it this way, pls do not run the risk of extrapolating that epf is going to continue buy more nestle going fwd loh.......!!
EPF has increased the shareholding by 10.4% todate but share price had gone up by roughly 60% loh....!!
My school maths teacher always tell raider always beware of the mathematical imbalance loh....!!

That does not mean epf will not start disposing going fwd mah.....!!
In fact the latest announcement EPF reported on 12 OCT they are selling 6k units, and raider suspect more selling on the way with high valuation of NESTLE with PE above 50x, it is ripe time for epf profit taking loh....!!

So do becareful in chasing such a overvalue stock in the current challenging time loh....!!

So, Nestle and Hengyuan are in similar pattern.
Hengyuan drop due to upgrading and no business --19 to 6
Nestle will drop from 140 to 80 due to 2 years profoit reduction.

3iii NESTLE (M) BHD


By Maybank IB Research

Sell

Target price: RM102


MAYBANK IB said the disposal of Nestle’s chilled dairy business and the Petaling Jaya factory land will yield gross cash proceeds of RM155mil (or 66 sen per share) which will be used to establish the Milo Manufacturing Centre of Excellence and repay borrowings.

“Upon deconsolidating Nestle’s chilled dairy business and adjusting for interest cost savings, our FY19-FY20 earnings estimates are tweaked lower by circa 1%.

“We maintain the ‘sell’ rating with a lower discounted cash flow derived target price of RM102 (weighted average cost of capital of 6.2%, long-term growth of 2.5%) on lofty valuations.

“Nestle currently trades at 47.5 times 2019 PER compared with the consumer sector’s average of 28 times,” the research house said.

Additionally, the completion dates for the disposals will be completed in two stages of which are the chilled dairy business by Jan 1, 2019; manufacturing business and PJ factory by July 1, 2019.

Nestle stands to receive a total gain on disposal of RM27mil over FY18 and FY19.

The proposed disposal is expected to be completed by end-July 2019 and is not subject to shareholders approval, it noted.

“We believe the majority of the RM27mil gain on disposal will only materialise in FY19. As such, we leave our FY18 earnings unchanged but marginally lower our FY19-FY20 earnings estimates by circa 1% after deconsolidating Nestle’s chilled dairy business revenue and adjusting for higher interest cost savings,” Maybank IB said.

There are several risk factors for our earnings estimates, price target, and rating for Nestle Malaysia, the research house said.

“A spike in raw material prices may impact earnings for Nestle Malaysia.

“Additionally, sharp appreciation of the US dollar against the ringgit will also affect its earnings, for about 50% of its raw material requirements are denominated in the US dollar. Its export sales, which account for about 20% of total sales, should provide some natural hedge,” it said.

rlch Boy who ate instant noodles every day for years dies of stomach cancer

Matcha Green Tea That boy probably eats other unhealthy food that are convenient too, so it's not really conclusive. Many other reason too, will you eat same things everyday when you can choose on healthier options? What do you think?

ahgoo I think it is irresponsible reporting to attribute, the boy's stomach cancer to instant noodles. Go google the stats for countries that have high incidences of stomach cancer.

China #5: "Cancer has a relatively low chance of occurring in China, except for stomach cancer. According to research, some of the main causes of stomach cancer in the country are preserved food, stomach bacterial infections and genetics. There are certain types of people that have a higher chance of contracting the disease based on their DNA."

Korea is up there too!

ahgoo As for the price action of Nestle: The 200-day moving average sits at 138.20 MYR, so unless it breaks this level and 125 MYR. you should not be too concerned. Near term resistance is 150 Ringgit and it has support is around 142.50 MYR. Nestle is a consumer staple stock as I mentioned in the past. @pang72 and others, if you consider that other emerging markets around the world has plummeted 30-50%, Nestle has held up exceptionally well. Just bank your dividends and hold it for 3-5 years, in my opinion you will be well rewarded.

3iii For the first nine months ended 30 Sept 2018, the Group registered a turnover of RM4.2 billion, 4.8% higher than the previous year's corresponding period. The strong growth
was driven by improved consumer sentiment as well as our successful innovations and renovations. Our MAGGI Noodles range saw especially strong growth, mainly
contributed by the launch of our Pedas Giler variety. Other innovative product launches were Nestlé Tropicana Lychee Yogurt Flavour Ice Cream, MILO 3-in-1 Less Sugar and
NESCAFÉ Cold Brew.



Review of performance (Year-to-date, 2018 vs Year-to-date, 2017)
In the third quarter, the Group registered a turnover of RM1.4 billion, 9.4% higher than the previous quarter. The 0% GST from June 2018 to August 2018 helped to boost
consumer confidence which led to a stronger demand and higher sales..
Profit before tax reduced to a level of RM186.7 million, mainly driven by an anticipated and planned phasing of the Marketing Investments. Q3 shows normally higher
investments than Q2.

thanaraj I have no idea when this share will declare a dividend. I recognize its time to declare a dividend so as to bring the share price down. Any commend please.A. David

thanaraj I made a gross error in my comments made on 10/11/2018 at 8.11am. I said its time to declare a dividend to bring down he share price. The error made by me is to declare a dividend to bring down the Nestle share price. No to bring down the share price, this cannot be done by declaring a dividend but can only be made by declaring an announcement of when Nestle will give a bonus offer to share holders.So I hope Nestle Malaysia will now give make an official announcement when it would declare a BONUS offer to its current share holders which would then cause dilution of share holdings thereby causing an increase of market shares. Any comments from Nestle Management on my proposal appreciated. A. David share holder.

DividendMagic Nestle is a little overvalued right now. But still good for the long run if you're holding it.
