vivoviva Doctor Soo passed away. Brainchild behind the medical field collapse. Run......
31/10/2017 4:43 PM
Lantern42 Dr Soo is not related to Mexter. Lim Yin Chow now controls Mexter, and he's still alive. Lim Yin Chow and Dr Soo were both co-founders of HSC Medical Centre. Lim was the corporate brains behind HSC Medical Centre while Soo was the top cardiologist in HSC. HSC's medical business, the medical tourism concept, Aragreen's RM1bn multi-generational home was mostly built by Lim, who is now in Mexter.

akow I was told after Lim sold & left HSC, HSC’s earnings went downhill (can check the accounts from SSM). And many ex-HSC’s key staffs are now at Mexter.

10/08/2018 5:40 PM
commonsense Why is the revenue from the Mother and Child center (under healthcare division) only RM34k? I thought they launched it back in January 2018. Management initially targeted for the division to contribute to the group bottom line in 2H18. Looking at the numbers i doubt that's possible.

Will need to wait for 3Q18 results to see if they managed to push up the revenue of this new division.

19/11/2018 6:32 PM
commonsense Looks like the demand for the healthcare service is still a bit slow for the company to make profit. Not sure if they can make it breakeven by this FY.
19/11/2018 8:36 PM
warrantbuffet I’ve been following up this counter. I’m still keeping the shares as I’ve made money from it. Since all the healthcare businesses are based organic growth, the co shares will soar once the earnings kicks in. Just give them a bit of time. Healthcare can never go wrong.
27/11/2018 1:03 PM
commonsense I am just not sure of management decision to start venturing into wellness community business (sounds like a resort business) and retirement homes facilities business is the best at the moment given that the new confinement business has yet to deliver any meaningful profit to shareholders. It would be better for them to focus on the confinement business first as it would potentially need a lot of working capital at this early stage.

The confinement centre in TTDI was launched back in January 2018 and looking at the 3 quarter results (4Q18, 1Q & 2Q19), it does not seem that the business is attracting a lot of customers with a combined revenue of only RM 360k and a loss of RM4mil since it 9 months of operation. We will need to see if the business has improved in the 3Q19 period or not.

The retirement home business will need an initial investment of RM1mil for the renovation of 2 bungalow houses (to cater for a capacity of 70 beds). Then the 2 houses will cost the company a total rent of RM22.5k/month or RM270k per year. Other costs include staffs and marketing cost which are not specified by the company. This sounds just like the confinement center business which the company has yet to show proof of profitability.

The Wellness Valley (the resort type business) will need an initial investment of RM21.8mil to acquire a plot of land located 15 minutes from Genting. Proposed development plan is to build:
1 block of 5 storey medical center
2 blocks of 38 storey retirement homes and 5 storey podium
1 block of 45 storey medical tourism hotel
1 block of 39 storey medical tourism service apartment
5 storey retail, 2 storey f&B retail and 2 storey fruit market retail.

The development is to be carried out in a period of 6 years and expected to start this year (2019). Total GDV is RM558.5 mil.

For me this is actually not a healthcare company but more of a property developer. And what is more worrying is that all this actually benefit Dr Lim Yin Chow who holds 28% equity interest in Mexter the most. Not sure if it will be at the expense of minority.

If you are looking to diversify your portfolio outside of Mexter/ LYC (due to its earnings uncertainties) I would recommend you to look at MBMR.

MBMR is a direct proxy to Perodua via its 22.6% interest in the company. Valuation is cheap at only 6.9x PE (based on target FY18 profit of RM145mil. 9m profit is already RM106mil). PB is low at only 0.7x BV. 4Q18 results is expected to be higher than 3Q18 and last year's 4Q17.

FY19 growth will be driven by the still high demand of the new Myvi and the newly launched SUV Aruz and also the newly revamp Alza in 2H19. The recent announcement of closure and potential disposal of the loss-making alloy wheel manufacturing business alone is expected to boost the company’s profit by an additional RM10mil to RM20mil. I am projecting a profit to shareholder of RM170 mil for FY19 which at the current price values MBMR at only 5.9x PE.

Please go through the analyst reports (https://klse.i3investor.com/servlets/stk/pt/5983.jsp) and do your own analysis before making any decisions. There are 8 analysts in total covering the stock with most of them having a TP of above RM3 (all have a buy rating). The average TP for the 8 analysts is around RM3.50.

Good luck.

johnbrooks Just google dr lim yin chow


One word. Dodgy!
27/01/2019 9:23 PM
gimcdoc I’m currently a physician practicing at Gleneagles Ampang, KL. I’ve known Dr Lim Yin Chow when he was studying medicine at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) & visited him at St John’s College (a HKU student residential hall at Pokfulum Road, HK) in 1989. He was a very bright student & was awarded with at least two HKU scholarships. At that time he was one of the only two foreign medical students admitted to the faculty of medicine in HKU. However, he did not complete his medical registration in HK and went straight into the corporate finance sector in Hong Kong; to my knowledge, he also holds a doctorate degree (PhD). In around year 2000, he came back to KL, co-founded HSC Medical Center with his partner Dr Soo Chee Siong in 2003. I have known both of them for years (Dr Soo used to practiced at Gleneagles too). To my knowledge, Dr Lim has never been practiced in HK or KL; he was involved in all non-medical areas like business development, setting up & running of the medical centre. HSC Medical Centre is a very famous heart hospital. Approximately in 2006, the group started the property division, HSB Development Sdn Bhd where Menara HSC & Aragreens were developed. I remembered Dr Soo told me that he recruited his brother Soo Chee Sern as the property division CEO (Soo was then involved in a CBT case https://www.thesundaily.my/archive/993507-YRARCH245374) and Dr Lim was attacked repeatedly by unknown people. I’ve known Dr Lim for more than 30 years and he is a very reputable person, he has many friends and if you know any of them, pls verify. I am in my capacity to provide my fair opinion on him. Always hear from both sides of the story.
30/01/2019 8:44 PM
akow mr. commonsense - I totally agreed with you if Mexter Technology Bhd (now known as LYC Healthcare Bhd) involves in property development, it does not deserve to enjoy the healthcare valuation. However, to my understanding, if you read carefully in the shareholders circular, you will realize that the property developer, LYC Venture Sdn Bhd is not part of the group. LYC Venture merely appoints Mexter to provide consultancy for setting up wellness & healthcare faculties & to operate the medical facilities & senior living, etc.
30/01/2019 9:04 PM
Jomaropol LYC Healthcare is not involved in property development at all. The property development is done privately by Lim Yin Chow through his private (not listed) LYC Venture. That's why the confusion because both the company names are LYC. I repeat again, LYC Healthcare is not doing property. LYC Healthcare with its healthcare expertise is providing medical consultancy to "healthcarerize" the project in Genting. LYC Health will not be doing the property development but will advise the developer on how to make it a healthcare city. LYC will also be operating nursing homes and hospitals there in the future. So, LYC Healthcare makes a nice healthcare profit out of the whole project. Now many developers are looking for healthcare partners to make their property a healthcare property. LYC Health is the only company with the unique skill set to do so.
18/04/2019 1:00 PM
Jomaropol Actually this is a good project for LYC Health because LYC Health bears no property dev risk whatsoever and only provides medical consultancy services to LYC Venture. LYC Health will also have the rights to operate a medical centre there in the future which will service the greater Genting area. (Demand is great as there's no substantial medical facilities in that area)
