Victor Yong grabcar & tan chong are expanding in ASEAN, grabcar and tan chong have great synergy. Nissan is also progressive in electrical/hybrid cars e.g. leaf. Nissan ranks no 2 in Japan. once tan chong introduces new Nissan model like honda, etc, the sale volume will rebound . :)

Victor Yong possible for grabcar to acquire a stake tan chong as grabcar could offer new/old nissan cars, etc to grab drivers? :)

Victor Yong South-East Asian ride-hailing platform Grab, the company co-founded by Anthony Tan who is from the family that built up the Tan Chong Motor group, is making a big bet on the Indonesian market with an investment of US$700mil over the next four years.

Indonesia is Grab’s largest market in South-East Asia, with its GrabCar and GrabBike businesses each growing more than 600% in 2016.

The investment under the company’s “Grab 4 Indonesia” 2020 master plan will see its services expand across more cities than any of its competitors, including Jakarta, Bali, Bandung, Padang, Makassar, Medan, Surabaya and Yogyakarta.

The master plan, designed to support Indonesia’s goal of becoming the region’s largest digital economy by 2020, includes the opening of a Grab research and development (R&D) centre in Jakarta.

The company also plans to launch a social impact fund to invest in local companies and improve access to mobile payments and financing opportunities across Indonesia, it said yesterday.

Anthony, who is group CEO and co-founder of Grab, is the son of Tan Chong Motor Holdings Bhd

president Tan Heng Chew. His grandfather, Tan Sri Tan Yuet Foh, co-founded the Tan Chong group into a leading automotive company in the region.

“As the largest homegrown technology start-up in South-East Asia, we are excited to make this significant investment in Indonesia’s future and accelerate their transition to a fully integrated digital economy.

“The ‘Grab 4 Indonesia’ 2020 master plan underlines our deep commitment to driving South-East Asia forward, and our excitement about the tremendous opportunities we see in Indonesia to help build and advance the country’s digital infrastructure and ecosystem,” Anthony said in a statement yesterday.

The master plan involves three major investment pillars, which are technology talent, technopreneurship, and mobile payments.

To create new jobs in information technology and upskill the country’s human capital, Grab aims to hire 150 engineers over the next two years for a new R&D centre in Jakarta.

The company said the centre would focus on developing country-specific innovations, including algorithms to address new road regulations in Jakarta and GrabHitch (Nebeng), a “bike-pooling” service that caters to almost 1.4 million commuters in greater Jakarta.

Indonesian engineers will also be provided with training opportunities at Grab’s existing R&D centres in Singapore, Beijing and Seattle.

The company also plans to pump US$100mil into local start-ups and aspiring technopreneurs through a “Grab 4 Indonesia” social impact investment fund.

It said the fund would focus on companies involved in the mobile and financial services industries, particularly those which serve smaller cities and communities which have yet to benefit from the digital economy.

To increase access to mobile payments and financing opportunities, the company will expand its mobile payment solutions in Indonesia through its cashless stored value option, GrabPay Credits, and existing partnerships with Mandiri and their e-Cash solution, it said.

“In addition, Grab will provide its driver partners with access to more financing opportunities to purchase their own smartphones and automotive vehicles, giving them the opportunity to build sustainable livelihoods and become micro-entrepreneurs,” it said.

To date, Grab has generated over US$260mil in income for its driver partners in Indonesia.

Bloomberg quoted Grab president Ming Maa as saying that the bulk of the investment into Indonesia will come from Grab’s fund-raising exercise last year, during which the company collected a record US$750mil from backers led by SoftBank Group Corp.

Ming Maa said there were no plans for a new financing round, but expects the company to exceed the estimated US$700mil investment figure “very quickly”.

Grab is currently estimated to be valued at more than US$3bil.

Victor Yong once announced, auto stocks will rise :)
A policy for the maximum permissible lifespan of vehicles in Malaysia has been in the works, and the study towards that is now at its final stage, according to a Bernama report. A proposal to incentivise owners of older vehicles to change those for newer ones is included as part of the study, which must be presented to Cabinet before its tabling in Parliament.

nikicheong Victor, calm down.

1) Grab and Tan Chong are wholly unrelated. This has been said many times. Don't dream of anything happening.

2) Nissan Leaf is still too expensive. Do not expect any appreciable contribution from there.

However, look at this: https://paultan.org/2017/10/27/spied-2018-nissan-serena-seen-testing-in-malaysia/

Tan Chong needs to launch new models for Serena, X-Trail, Teana, Almera and Livina. This is where the high level impact will come from!
02/11/2017 13:34
Victor Yong Nikki, yup. launch something like juke to compete with honda hrv, etc. Nissan offers good customer services at service centres. if they have the right products, I would buy :)
02/11/2017 19:03
Victor Yong tchong's net asset per share is almost 3 times the current share price. any chance for privatisation and relisting later e.g. astro, etc? :)
03/11/2017 13:37
nikicheong Not likely to be privatized, since Tan Chong does have major debt. Even then the credit rating is strong, since Tan Chong is publicly listed. If it is wanted to be taken private, the banks won't be too happy. Also Tan Chong's ownership is fragmented and no longer concentrated in a single person's hands (the family got many feuds, so hard to combine and get a controlling stake). Unlike Astro, which was mainly owned by one man and wasn't swimming in debt so relatively easy to take private then re-IPO when the market recovers.

In short, almost zero chance of being taken private or delisted. We are at the very bottom, if not darn near to it (~10% from the bottom). I.e. I see the absolute bottom being at ~RM1.42. Good buy!
09/11/2017 23:33
nikicheong @DualShock, I have already spoken about the reason for the slow model update. Look at my posts from before.

At these prices and valuation...close eye and buy lah. Sure double, possibly 4x, maybe even 6x upwards in a 5 year period. Tan Chong isn't going anywhere.
22/11/2017 21:23
nikicheong Not BV per say, but the trough situation. We are at the bottom of the cycle. Improving Ringgit, improving GDP in Malaysia and Indochina, new models in the pipeline...from bottom to top, companies easily move 4-6x. Now the question is, are we at (or near) the bottom? That is the key.

Btw I like the Q3 report. Regardless there will be a selldown tomorrow and I will be there to pick up the pieces. Some of them at least.
28/11/2017 20:46
Yu_and_Mee why buy in downtrend counter?
28/11/2017 21:21
Jon Choivo For the last few years, the car sector is not in the trough, but actually increasing, only recently start to taper.

Even when the sector is booming, tanchong can still die. This is not related to the industry but the company.

Just cause you lost money in this counter, does not mean you need to make it back here.

This company is being choked alive, due to mismanagement clearly.

Yu_and_Mee Cut loss and use the money to invest in other profitable counter, may give better return instead of holding an uncertain profit company.
Below companies either loss making company or price falling serious company may be useful as reference.

Aeon, Century, Carepls, Cscsteel, Dayang, Dnex, Ekovest, Esceram, Ffhb, Flbhd, Gamuda, Gadang, Harbour, Hohup, Huayang, IQgroup, Iwcity, Karex, KSL, Latitud, Microln, Mitra, Muda, Opcom, Parkson, Pesona, Sapnrg, Scable, Sendai, Sign, Superln, Tnlogis, TRC, Tchong, Titijya, Uzma, YTL and lain-lain lagi

Though one day they may rebound and go high and higher but why invest in uncertain instead of follow the trend to get profitable counters? If they are good, once confirmed profitable in QR, only come back still not too late.
Just 2 cents.
28/11/2017 22:03
nikicheong Thanks for your kind concerns dear folks. I am more than capable of thinking for myself. My investment style has served me very well indeed. Tan Chong Motors will be a winner. When? I don't know. But till that happens, I can rest easy knowing I am buying into a company that will surely rebound in the mid to long term.

Look at MHB.

The stock market is forward looking. Tan Chong is selling at depressed valuations. Any minor news (new car launch for example) will serve as a catalyst to bridge the valuation gap.

We shall judge the rationality of my decision in the 12-24 month period.

17/12/2017 12:30
nikicheong Entered once more today @1.38. Avg price now at 1.60. Tan Chong Motors is well-positioned to benefit from the strengthening Ringgit, rebound in consumer sentiment (which always eventually mirrors GDP growth rate) and launch of new models in the new year (namely Serena Hybrid 2018 and Xtrail 2018, plus one or two other launches). Possible upside from quick growth in Indochina as well, namely Vietnam and Myanmar.

Tan Chong trades at very undemanding valuations. True, it could be a value trap, but this is also precisely the type of company that becomes a multi-bagger over the long term (5-10 years) due to the depressed valuations.

Rusli Widad Tan Chong Motor Holdings Bhd has secured the rights to be the exclusive distributor, assembler and after-sales service provider of King Long products in Vietnam.

Its wholly-owned subsidiary TC Motor Vietnam Co Ltd (TCMV) entered into the exclusive distributorship agreement with Xiamen King Long United Automotive Industry Co Ltd.

The partnership with the Chinese company which specialises in the design, production and sale of various buses and coaches, will help facilitate Tan Chong’s penetration into the different bus and coach segments.
