Jasper Lim not really..
09/04/2019 10:14 PM
commonsense Hi Joyce,

In terms of valuation this company is actually not that expensive. Most analyst has a target profit of around RM60mil for FY19 which means the company is currently being valued at only 6.5x PE.

However, you need to take note that the company could potentially face some liquidity issues in the future. Based on 4Q18 report, it currently has a cash balance of around RM35mil but RM22mil is pledge to the bank which leaves them with only RM13mil for working capital. This might not be enough which is why the company had decided to take in more debt in FY18 to fund their working capital. Debt has increased RM130mil in FY17 to RM275mil as of Dec 18 with most of the new debt in the form of short term debts.

Another thing to take note is management indication of the company reluctance to participate in any future ECRL contracts even if the government decides to revive the project later. This is mainly due to the very thin margins of the contracts for the projects (which is logical given the government target to cut the cost to almost half from RM66bil to around RM35bil).

If you are really interested in the company, i would suggest you to maybe wait for the 1Q19 result at least to see if the cash reserves of the company has improve. If they failed to do so, management might be forced to take in more debt which will result in lower profit in the future due to higher interest payment ( the new debts taken in FY18 mostly carries higher interest rates). Or worst they might be forced to make a capital call exercise.

luckyman The company's PAT dropped 11% in 2018 as compared with that in 2017. But the share price dropped > 60% in 2018.

Maybe it's time for it to recover at least half to RM1.60 given that its fundamentals remain the same or improving with more mega projects to be unveiled or revived again....it will likely be a potential beneficiary for the proposed RTS link in JB....

Sector Outlook (Neutral)

Bandar Malaysia resuscitated
The Government announced that the Bandar Malaysia project was reinstated. The master developer of the project is IWH-CREC Sdn Bhd (ICSB) which would buy 60% of the underlying land and the balance 40% would continue to be owned by the Government. Major beneficiaries of this project are IWC, Ekovest and MRCB. Reinstatement of Bandar Malaysia project also increa ses the likelihood of the HSR revival. Bandar Malaysia was supposed to host the terminus of HSR previously. We are turning warmer on construction given the recent positive news flow on project revivals. However, the KLCON is already up 31% YTD. Maintain NEUTRAL on construction, Kimlun is our top pick.

Patrick13 Kimlun’s manufacturing orders expected to accelerate

Kimlun Corp Bhd
(Aug 19, RM1.23)

Maintain buy with an unchanged target price (TP) of RM2.16: As we move into the fourth quarter of 2019 and the forecast financial year 2020 (FY20F), we believe that Kimlun Corp Bhd’s manufacturing orders will accelerate. These orders will initially flow from Singapore and eventually Malaysia when some key projects are rolled out.

Its total manufacturing tender book is now at RM500 million which is largely skewed towards projects in Singapore, including Industrialised Building System (IBS) related jobs and Deep Tunnel Sewerage System 2. This does not include orders from the North South Corridor Expressway and Jurong Region Line.

Our FY19F earnings estimates are above consensus. Our forecast of a surge in manufacturing flows from Singapore is intact, with local construction wins likely to come in at the higher end of this forecast. Not enough recognition is given to Kimlun’s high-margin manufacturing business which should command a scarcity premium. Its IBS expertise will be crucial in clinching more local affordable housing projects.

Given its depressed valuations, incremental new orders for Kimlun’s construction and manufacturing segments beyond its total order book of RM2 billion would lift the stock. With its strategically located manufacturing plants in Negeri Sembilan and Johor, we believe it will be the front runner for the Tunnel Lining Segment and Segmental Box Girders portions of major transportation and infrastructure projects when they eventually kick off.

Our TP is set at RM2.16, based on sum-of-parts valuation. We think this better reflects Kimlun’s underlying business model. Its construction business is valued at RM1.62 a share with its manufacturing unit at 54 sen a share.

Low-margin wins is a major risk. The biggest risk is its perceived over-reliance on projects in Johor. This is mitigated by its stringent bidding process, only accepting projects with strong marketability. — AllianceDBS Research, Aug 19

paperplane Singapore Construction Sector
The total construction demand in 2019 is projected to range between $27 billion to $32 billion in
2019, comparable to the $30.5 billion (preliminary estimate) awarded in 2018.
The projected outlook is due to sustained public sector construction demand, which is expected to
reach between S$16.5 billion and S$19.5 billion in 2019. Public construction demand is expected to
be boosted by major infrastructure projects and a pipeline of major industrial building projects.
The private sector’s construction demand is expected to remain steady at between S$10.5 billion
and S$12.5 billion in 2019, supported by projects including the redevelopment of past en-bloc sales
sites concluded prior to the second half of 2018 and new industrial developments.
The construction demand is expected to be improve over the medium term. Demand is projected to
reach between S$27 billion and S$34 billion per year for 2020 and 2021 and could increase to
between S$28 billion and S$35 billion per year for 2022 and 2023.
The public sector is expected to contribute S$16 billion to S$20 billion per year from 2020 to 2023
with similar proportions of demand coming from building projects and civil engineering works.
Besides public residential developments, public sector construction demand over the medium term
will continue to be supported by big infrastructure projects such as the Cross Island Line,
developments at Jurong Lake District and Changi Airport Terminal 5.
SPC supplies TLS to Singapore MRT projects since 2006. It secured approximately 40% of the total
TLS orders of the Downtown Line 2, the on-going Downtown Line 3 and Thomson Line.
Further, SPC has been a frequent supplier of jacking pipes and IBS components to various projects
in Singapore.
With its strong track record in Singapore, SPC is well positioned to compete for further potential
sales orders from future MRT and sewerage projects.
There is no on-going development carried out by the Group on its existing land bank totalling 204
acres and the Group does not expect any new launching until second half of 2019, subject to the

Patrick13 Kimlun sees tough conditions in construction market persisting

CONSTRUCTION companies such as Kimlun Corp Bhd are waiting with bated breath to see what goodies will be announced in the upcoming Budget 2020 and are hoping the government will pump-prime the economy with public infrastructure projects which, in turn, could help turn their fortunes around.

“A recovery in the construction sector next year will depend on the upcoming Budget 2020 — what the government has in mind to boost the sector. If the government does not do anything, the country may sink into recession. As a businessman, I would not be optimistic [about a recovery] if the government continues to tighten its belt,” Kimlun CEO and executive director Sim Tian Liang tells The Edge in an interview.

The national budget for next year will be tabled in Parliament on Oct 11.

On its part, Kimlun — which has seen its earnings tumble for two straight years since the financial year ended Dec 31, 2017 (FY2017) — does not expect the declining trend to reverse course in the current financial year given the slowdown in construction projects.

Sim, 64, says net profit for FY2019 is likely to be flat or lower than last year’s on fewer construction jobs.

This is despite the group posting a 30.6% year-on-year increase in net profit to RM29.38 million for the first half ended June 30, 2019 (1HFY2019). Revenue rose 46.7% y-o-y to RM643.72 million, it said in a bourse filing last Thursday. The improved 1HFY2019 performance was mainly due to higher revenue achieved by the construction and manufacturing and trading (M&T) divisions.

Sim’s cautious outlook stems from his view that the worst is not over for the construction sector. He notes a turnaround is only expected in two to three years. The construction segment is the main contributor to the group’s revenue.

He says the recovery of the property market, meanwhile, will depend on how fast unsold properties that have been built are absorbed, although he expects that sector to take longer to rebound than the construction industry.

“The slowdown in the market is deterring a lot of developers from launching new properties. However, property development constitutes a small portion of our overall revenue. Our main business is still construction,” he adds.

Kimlun saw a 16% y-o-y drop in net profit to RM68.48 million in FY2017, which fell further by 11% y-o-y to RM61.14 million in FY2018.

However, revenue rose 2.7% y-o-y to RM1.01 billion in FY2018. Of the sum, the construction segment contributed 79.16%, the M&T business accounted for 20.38% and only 0.46% came from the property development segment.

The group has an outstanding order book of RM2 billion as at June 30, which provides earnings visibility for the next two years, says Sim. Of this, RM1.7 billion is from construction contracts and RM300 million from the manufacturing segment.

This year, the construction projects that will contribute to the group’s results include the Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak Project (Serian Roundabout to Pantu Junction); office complex for Majlis Bandaraya Johor Baru; condominiums and ancillary buildings at Mukim Petaling, Selangor, for the Kuok Brothers Sdn Bhd group; and building works for one block of commercial building and one block of apartments at Medini Iskandar, Johor, for Sunway Iskandar Sdn Bhd.

Sim says the group has set a lower order book replenishment target for FY2019 of RM500 million, of which RM400 million is expected to come from construction and RM100 million from manufacturing. Year to date, Kimlun has secured construction jobs worth RM250 million and new manufacturing sales orders of RM40 million.

“This year’s target is lower than our previous years’ targets of between RM600 million and RM800 million, taking into account current market conditions,” he adds.

Kimlun is one of 1,321 construction firms nationwide that are reported to have submitted their interest to participate in the RM44 billion East Coast Rail Link project during the pre-qualification exercise on May 29 and 30.

Sim says the group is also eyeing opportunities in projects such as the Johor Baru-Singapore Rapid Transit System Link; the Ministry of Housing and Local Government’s plan to build 100,000 affordable homes per year; the Penang Transport Master Plan, which envisions a series of highways and light rail transit lines; the construction of the Kulim International Airport; upgrading works on the North-South Highway; the second phase of the Pan Borneo Highway construction works; the Sarawak coastal highway; and the second phase of the Klang Valley Double Track rehabilitation works.

Meanwhile, Kimlun expects the precast concrete product manufacturing segment to bring in stable income for the group, through its subsidiary SPC Industries Sdn Bhd, going forward.
11/09/2019 8:22 AM
Patrick13 SPC has a strong track record in supplying precast concrete components to various projects in Singapore since 2006, including mass rapid transit, underground cable tunnel and sewerage system projects, and is well positioned to compete for potential sales orders from the expansion of the rail network in the city state.

“The advantage of SPC is that it has another market in Singapore, which should provide more consistent jobs than Malaysia [amid the current slowdown in the construction sector]. The Singapore market should sustain SPC’s [premix production] operations in Johor,” says Sim.

Still, he points out that sales orders from Singapore only contribute about 10% to 15% to the group’s profit.

Sim says the group has no plan to make any cash call until the market improves, adding that if it were to raise capital from the market, it would be used for property development.

Kimlun’s cash balance stood at RM56.8 million as at June 30 while total borrowings were at RM351.5 million, resulting in net debt of RM294.7 million.

Nevertheless, Sim says the group is in no hurry to develop its existing land bank, totalling 204 acres, and is not planning any new launches until sentiment in the property market improves.

While Kimlun does not have a dividend policy, Sim says the group aims to pay out yearly dividends to shareholders as long as it makes money. It has had an average dividend payout ratio of 24.9% since its listing in 2010.

Bloomberg data shows that of the six analysts covering Kimlun, two rated it a “buy”, three, a “hold” and one, a “sell”. Their average target price is RM1.52 over the next 12 months. The stock closed at RM1.26 last Thursday, giving the company a market capitalisation of RM428.17 million. Year to date, its share price has risen 12% from RM1.13.
