sheldon This is the response to my open letter I got from the management of BK ...

Sorry for the late reply.

BKB has been investing in several property development projects in Australia with further capital commitments and BKB is also looking into other investment opportunities. Besides, BKB Chemical Group is embarking on several projects i.e. building on-site co-generation as reported in last year’s annual report and investing in better technology in its key process in the chlor-alkali operation.

Save for the above, the DRP will provide shareholders the opportunity to enhance their equity participation in the Company at a discounted price over long term.


Best regards,


Goh Swee Eng

Chief Financial Officer/Company Secretary

DickyMe Even then it does not justify around 80% capital erosion.
11/12/2019 7:07 PM
sheldon DickyMe - I'm trying to get some info on this erosion which I think is quite possible.

Could you provide some link or reference on this matter?
12/12/2019 9:07 AM
DickyMe I have searched the net but unavailable. Only source is old newspaper.(early 1980), I remember looking at the stocks section - The Star. I don't have the paper now. That's almost 40 years ago.

12/12/2019 10:45 AM
DickyMe There are some protected research papers and books about Malaysian stocks from 1970s.

Perhaps this link may provide the information if you want to dig deeper
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2214845015300703#bib17. Wiley Online Library requires registration, I pass on it.

sheldon WSJ historical prices reveal some interesting stats.

Based on June 94 price of 2.40 vs Dec 2019 price of 16.60, compounded annual gain (excluding the handsome intermittent dividends) = 7.9%!

If we compare June 94 to Dec 2016, then the gain is 9.4%!!

I hope somebody invents a time tunnel.

sheldon BK main man Tan Sri Dato Lee has been picking up a couple of lots but because of trading illiquidity, that was enough for the share to climb precipitously.

Just speculating - Maybe he wants shareholders to pay more for the DRP

LouiseS Batu Kawan derives most of its profits from KLK, which is its own subsidiary. It is also involved in chemicals manufacturing. Batu Kawan's earning performance has been overall decreasing in last five years, whereby its earning per share overall decreased from 126.9 sen to 116 sen. Return on equity is around 7%. Dividend paid to shareholders in 2018 is 55 sen per share. Dividend yield is around 3.3%.

15/12/2019 11:16 PM
sheldon The devil's in the details but in a nutshell ...

BK is primarily driven by CPO prices given the big chunk of dividends it receives from KLK.

However it is somewhat mitigated by the oppositely correlated impact on downstream oleo chemicals that enjoy improved margins at lower CPO.

Then there's the earnings from industrial chemicals and smaller stuff from property development.
16/12/2019 5:49 AM
Cipta It is logical to keep only one co listed which its business overlapping. A big saving to the holding co if taking either one private.
16/12/2019 10:10 PM
sheldon CPO rise is strangely meteoric but who's complaining!
27/12/2019 3:37 PM
sheldon Is the drop due to some nut making idiotic statements resulting in us losing the high-margin refined palm oil oleo-chemical business?
10/01/2020 5:44 PM
danielleesing ipoh-based Batu Kawan Bhd is widely known as the parent company of locally listed plantation giant Kuala Lumpur Kepong Bhd (KLK). However, many may not know that Batu Kawan is also Malaysia’s largest producer of chlor-alkali chemical products, which include chlorine, caustic soda and hydrochloric acid.

Its chemical plants in Perak and Terengganu have an annual production capacity of 116,000 tonnes of caustic soda. These factories run at an average utilisation rate of close to 90%. The group’s market share is estimated at 55% to 60%.

To be sure, the bulk of Batu Kawan’s profit comes from KLK. Even so, profit attributable to Batu Kawan’s shareholders grew to RM825.2 million in FY2016 from RM483.7 million in FY2013, translating into a three-year compound annual growth rate of nearly 20%. While KLK’s is slightly more impressive at 20.2%, we had imposed a penalty on KLK in The Edge Billion Ringgit Club calculations as its FY2015 net profit fell below the FY2013 base year, resulting in Batu Kawan coming just ahead of KLK for the 2017 BRC award for highest growth in profit after tax over three years.
15/01/2020 1:30 PM
LouiseS Based on comparison of 44 plantation counters listed in Bursa Malaysia, BATU KAWAN is shown to be one of the TOP 8 plantation counters worthy to pay attention to and potentially invest in. BATU KAWAN stands out in performance indicators such as having consistently high earning per share (> 50 sen per share), high NTA per share (RM 14.4 per share) and relatively low P/E ratio of ~20.

19/03/2020 10:58 PM
sheldon The incentive to buy now is the probable 15 sen dividend to be announced in May - a yearly affair (unless management decides that the Co wants to hoard cash)
02/04/2020 3:42 PM
sheldon Come on brother!
Declare that 15 sen dividend.
Go on!
I haven't got all day.

sheldon What a shitty acquisition of CCM!

No sane person would pay such a huge price for such a badly run co.
17/11/2020 10:35 PM
i3gambler I look at it this way.
If the deal is bad or just to help PNB,
Then why not KLK buy it?
18/11/2020 8:25 AM
Plantermen Totally unacceptable a well run company Batu Kawan { KLK } buying a shit and paying a Premium during this covid outbreak. EGM please voice out
18/11/2020 8:32 AM
i3gambler Aiyo, tell you another example.

TAANN bought 30.5% equity in SWKPLNT at RM2.00 at quite big premium to market price in early Year 2018.

The estate and mill were badly managed then that the average monthly FFB production was way below 20K mT.

After TAANN joined in the management since then, the average monthly FFB production increase consistently until it is now at 28.2K mT.
18/11/2020 9:34 AM
Chua Zhi En I guess because of Bkawan still have room to drag down their performance if u compare it with KLK. Bkawan is still cheap so affordable to take higher risks on investment but KLK is relatively expensive, another bad decision will cause KLK turn haywire and considering KLK is a KLCI components stock.
18/11/2020 12:46 PM
sheldon For the Tunku who sits on the board, it's a win-win deal. She only holds 1000 shares of BK but her father holds 337,500 KLK shares (per 2018 Annual Report).

To pay cash for CCM, KLK has to declare a massive dividend & her family will be laughing all the way to the bank.

So guys, due to this bailout, don't expect a generous dividend at BK level .

Downside risk we bear but any windfall, others get the benefit.
18/11/2020 1:54 PM
sheldon It's too late i guess.

I wonder how come the board is given such wide powers to make such a huge commitment without requiring EGM approval.

It's like Pearl Harbour sneak attack haha.

09/12/2020 10:33 PM
