KUALA LUMPUR: Rakuten Trade Sdn Bhd, a joint venture company (JVC) of Kenanga Investment Bank Bhd and Japan’s Rakuten Securities Inc. (Rakuten Sec), was named FinTech Company of the Year at the recently held Malaysia FinTech Awards 2018.

Its web and mobile based trading services offer clients a fully digital trading experience from account opening, execution, settlement of trade, research and trading ideas as well as rewards and financial knowledge.

“Rakuten Trade is the result of the first overseas collaboration for Rakuten Securities. Having opened its doors to Malaysians in May last year, Rakuten Trade has since grown in leaps and bounds in under a year.

"It has exceeded our expectations and is striving to continuously excel,” said Rakuten Sec president Yuji Kusunoki of the win.

The award was presented to Rakuten Trade in recognition of being a FinTech company that had successfully seized a real opportunity to change the industry, satisfied a real market need through its unique value propositions, found a balance between cost and benefits and was able to extend its products and services to successfully reach the marketplace.

Kenanga in talks to buy Interpac
Tuesday, 22 May 2018

By Izwan Idris

It will result in one of the largest stockbrokers in Malaysia

PETALING JAYA: Kenanga Investment Bank Bhd has begun talks to acquire the stockbroking business of Inter-Pacific Securities Sdn Bhd in a move that would create one of the largest stockbrokers in the country.

Kenanga Investment hopes to close the deal within six months.

“The potential acquisition would further strengthen Kenanga Investment’s leading position in the retail broking space to become the top-two largest stockbrokers in Malaysia, with a combined market share of over 10% and retail market share of about 25%,” group managing director Datuk Chay Wai Leong said in a statement yesterday.

The firm, in a separate filing with Bursa Malaysia yesterday, said Bank Negara, in a letter dated May 16, stated that it had no objection to Kenanga Investment commencing negotiations with Inter-Pacific Securities to acquire its stockbroking business-related assets, liabilities and contractual arrangements.

“The proposed acquisition will be financed by shares of Kenanga Investment and cash,” it said.

No details on the value of the deal were made available in the announcement yesterday.

“We will make further announcements as and when there are material developments pertaining to the proposed acquisition,” it added.

Kenanga Investment, founded in 1973, offers a wide range of financial services. It operates through 32 branches nationwide and boasts of the largest remisier network in the country.

Inter-Pacific Securities, meanwhile, was established in 1972 and has five branches across Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor Baru and a paid-up capital of RM250mil.

“Inter-Pacific Securities is a reputable and well-established independent stockbroking company, with a robust track record and strong retail focus,” Chay said.

“We are looking forward to a smooth and fruitful negotiation process, and aim to conclude within the next six months,” Chay added.

Kenanga Investment made a pre-tax profit of RM23.6mil on revenue of RM182mil in the first quarter ended March 31, 2018.

The increase was mainly due to bad debt recovery from a court case settlement and higher net brokerage and management fees income generated, the company said last week.

Its stockbroking business generated a pre-tax profit of RM11.8mil, while its investment banking activities contributed RM2.7mil.

The group said last week that it expects to perform “better” this year amid a buoyant outlook for the stock market for the rest of the year.

The daily trading value of shares on Bursa Malaysia averaged around RM4.9bil in the first quarter.

In a related development, digital equites trader Rakuten Trade Sdn Bhd announced that it has over 12,000 clients, of which over 40% were first-timers to the equity broking market in Malaysia.

Rakuten Trade managing director Kaoru Arai said almost 80% of its clients are below the age of 40 and most of them are active traders.

“The company’s growth was also due to the support received from both Kenanga Investment Bank Bhd, Rakuten Securities Inc, local regulators, business partners and Rakuten Trade employees,” he said in a statement.

Rakuten Trade is a joint venture between Japan’s Rakuten Securities Inc and Kenanga Investment.

Moving forward, Rakuten Securities president Yuji Kusunoki and Arai announced that the platform would soon launch a contra trading facility as its second product, which would complement the existing cash upfront facility.

Rakuten Trade also attributed its client appeal on its Rewards Eco System, the first of its kind in Malaysia, which offered access to three of the country’s biggest loyalty points providers, AirAsia BIG, B Infinite (part of Berjaya Group) and BonusLink, under one platform.

Vict Higher share price is advantageous to the company if the company uses its share for acquisition :)

Kenanga Investment Bank Bhd has gotten the greenlight from Bank Negara Malaysia to commence negotiation to buy out Inter-Pacific Securities Sdn Bhd’s stockbroking business. The Central Bank states no objection for it to commence negotiations with InterPacific Securities on the proposed acquisition of the latter’s assets, liabilities and contractual arrangements. It, however, did not detail the potential value of the acquisition, but said it will be financed by ways of shares and cash. (The Edge Daily)

Kenanga-Interpac deal is off

Thursday, 1 Nov 2018

PETALING JAYA: Kenanga Investment Bank Bhd’s proposed deal to acquire stockbroker Inter-Pacific Securities Sdn Bhd (Interpac) has been called off.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia yesterday, Kenanga said that both parties had “mutually agreed to terminate the proposed acquisition.” However, no reason for the termination was given.

Sources said this was due primarily to “market conditions”, but did not elaborate.

In May, just after the 14th general election, Kenanga said it had been given the green light to start talks in relation to the purchase of the stockbroking business of Interpac.

The proposed deal was seen as the first large corporate deal to be announced under the new Pakatan Harapan government that had come into power in that same month.

A source said amid the current volatile markets, the parties could not reach an agreement on the terms of the deal.

“There were too many things to iron out,” said the source. If it had materialised, the parties, Kenanga and Inter-Pacific, which is the stockbroking arm of Berjaya Corp Bhd (BCorp) controlled by local tycoon Tan Sri Vincent Tan Chee Yioun, would have created one of the largest stockbrokers in the country.

Tan’s BCorp wholly owns Berjaya Capital Bhd, which owns 91.5% of Inter-Pacific Capital Sdn Bhd which, in turn, owns all of Interpac. Given that the proposed deal would have been financed by shares in Kenanga as well as cash, Tan through BCorp could very likely have emerged as one of the larger shareholders in the merged entity.

Pricing-wise, in the proposed deal, it was envisaged that Kenanga would not have forked out a premium for its smaller rival’s broking business to expand its remisier base.

“Going by industry benchmark, Kenanga should be looking to pay around one to 1.1 times book value for Interpac.

“That should work out to less than RM120mil,” a banker had estimated earlier.

Kenanga Investment, founded in 1973, offers a wide range of financial services operating through 32 branches nationwide. It also reportedly has the largest remisier network in the country.

It counts Sarawak-based CMS Capital Sdn Bhd as its single largest shareholder.

CMS Capital is the private company linked to former Sarawak Chief Minister Tun Abdul Taib Mahmud. Interpac, meanwhile, was set up in 1972 and has five branches across Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor Baru. It has a paid-up capital of RM250mil. The last major merger and acquisition deal in the stockbroking industry here was about four years ago when Affin Holdings Bhd acquired Hwang-DBS Investment Bhd at 1.3 times price-to-book.

commonsense Kenanga only managed to deliver a profit of RM 11.9mil to its shareholders in FY18 which is less than half of what was achieve in FY17. The main culprit for this underperformance is the credit loss expense which amounts to RM29.8mil of loss vs FY17 of only RM1.6mil. If you look at the operating profit, the company actually delivered a rather flat result of RM51.4mil vs RM54.9mil in FY17. Unless the company is expected to record another massive credit loss again this year, expect FY19 profit to rebound back at around RM20mil.

That being said at the current share price and assuming a profit of RM20mil in FY19, the company would be valued at 18.3x PE which is considerably high.

If you are looking to hedge your portfolio outside of Kenanga (due to its high valuation) I would recommend you to look at MBMR. (https://klse.i3investor.com/servlets/stk/pt/5983.jsp)

MBMR is a direct proxy to Perodua via its 22.6% interest in the company. Valuation is cheap at only 6.4x PE based on FY18 profit of RM166mil. PB is low at only 0.7x BV.

FY19 should deliver another profit growth year to the company. Profit growth will again be driven by the performance of Perodua (via MBMR 22.6% holdings in Perodua) from the still strong sales of new Myvi, sales of SUV Aruz and the introduction of the newly revamp Alza sometime in the 2H19. Aruz which commands a higher margin compared to other models, will help improve the total profit margin of Perodua (which will flow to MBMR’s bottom line as well).

MBMR is expected to achieve a profit of RM200mil in 2019. At the current share price, the company is being valued at only 5.3x which is a lot lower than the industry average of 15x PE. As an example, UMW (another company with exposure to Perodua) is currently trading at a PE multiple of almost 20x.

Good luck.
