xiaoji yet their dividend payout remain low, slightly higher than FD.
10/01/2019 1:09 AM
tigerboy Finally Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow is doing their right thing by allowing Penang water tariffs to increase significantly. Penang is having water tariff of RM0.32 per cu.m. now compared to RM0.67 for Kedah, RM0.73 for Perak, RM0.77 for Selangor and RM1.05 for Johore. (source: Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang Sdn Bhd-Water Tariff Project 2014). The extreme low Penang water is making it funny compared to other Pakatan Harapan controlled states as mentioned above. To close the tariff gap between states, the easiest is to raise the water tariff in Penang significantly. Penang people will have little to complaint about any water tariff increase when looking at water tariff in other states.

xiaoji RainT,
maybe thats the reason even it's to raise 20% tariff yet it's still unable to stimulate both the price and volume

tigerboy Under Lim Guan Eng (LGE), Penang water tariff is purposely keep low to hit out on BN controlled states claiming how efficient is Pakatan Harapan states. Even the high water tariff in Selangor was blamed on former BN government. Now Pakatan is the government of the day. The reason to keep Penang water tariff very low is no longer there. Even if the water tariff is increased 25% (from RM0.32 to RM0.40), it is still much lower than the next lowest water tariff of RM0.52 of Terengganu. With the significant increase in Penang water tariff, the profit of PBA will soar and the dividen payout will increase significantly.For the long suffering PBA shareholder, this is the moment long waited for. Just have to wait a little longer (within 2 months ?).

sohaitrader PBA Holdings Bhd’s is seeking a water tariff revision to raise RM501.0 mln to invest in five water supply projects in the State between 2019 and 2021. This takes into consideration that water demand in the State is projected to rise 128.0% to 1,884 mln litres per day from 826 MLD in 2017. (The Edge Daily)

28/01/2019 11:07 PM
sohaitrader THE proceeds from the proposed Penang water tariff review will be used solely to fund important water projects for the future, said Penang Water Supply Corporation (PBAPP) chief executive officer Datuk Jaseni Maidinsa.

He said the state government was implementing various socio-economic projects now to achieve the Penang 2030 vision of becoming a family-focused, green and smart state that inspires the nation.

“The aspirations of ‘Penang 2030’ cannot be achieved if Penang does not have enough water supply.

“Moreover, the people of Penang expect to enjoy continuous good water supply with no water rationing towards 2030 and beyond,” he said in a press statement.



“Penang’s average daily water demand has increased by 11%, from 744 million litres per day (MLD) in 2008 to 826 MLD in 2017.”

He also said Penang’s water demand was projected to reach 1,884 MLD by 2050, according to the independent ‘Masterplan Study for Potable Water in Penang towards 2050’.

Jaseni also noted that Penang’s population had increased from 1.55 million people in 2008 to 1.76 million people in 2017, adding that PBAPP’s customer base has increased from 476,179 consumers in 2008 to 604,547 consumers in 2017.

Another reason, he said, was that the number of trade water consumers (including multinational manufacturing companies, hotels and all kinds of businesses) in Penang has amost doubled, from 58,707 trade consumers in 2008 to 86,546 consumers in 2017.

“Penang needs sufficient water to support projects for the future, such as the Gurney Wharf, Batu Kawan Masterplan and Penang South Reclamation — Three Islands Project.

“According to an online portal , Penang’s per capita GDP in 2016 was RM47,332, the second highest in Malaysia after Kuala Lumpur.

“PBAPP must consistently stay ahead of Penang’s water demand to ensure that the people continue to benefit from progress.”

Jaseni also said that due to planning, development and funding considerations, major water supply projects could not be realised in a year or two.

“For example, the projected development period for the Sungai Perak Raw Water Transfer Scheme (SPRWTS) is seven years.

“The state government has implemented a ‘No Water Rationing’ policy in Penang for the benefit of the people.

“We must remember that Penang is a water-stressed state. PBAPP’s primary objective is to avoid water rationing in Penang at all costs,” he said.

On Penang MCA handing Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow a letter objecting to the likely increase in water tariff rates, Jaseni urged MCA to “think about the good of Penang”.

Jaseni said things have changed significantly in Penang since 2008.

“Due primarily to increased domestic water consumption, PBAPP’s water subsidies for 2017 and 2018 amounted to RM163.2mil. In 2017, PBA Holdings Bhd reported operational profits after tax (PAT) of RM37.28mil.

“How may we continue to justify RM80mil a year subsidies when PBAPP needs to raise sufficient funds for projects to ensure water sustainability and security for Penang in the future?

“The proposed tariff review is not aimed at putting more money into PBAPP’s pockets. It is to protect the future of Penang and its people,” he said.

Valuedude Is this unabsorbed reinvestment allowance thing going to be payable by the company?
28/02/2019 7:01 PM
RainT @valuedude

unabsorbed reinvestment allowance is tax incentive

it cannot be payable to whoever party

this RA is keep for reduce tax payment only , keep carry forward until can use or expire already then cannot use ( see Income Tax Act)

it is not money that pay to who or receive from who ...lol
01/03/2019 12:15 PM
RainT loss due to impairment loss on debtors

unless if future can receive back the payment then can recognize reversal of impairment loss

if not it will be permanent loss to the company
01/03/2019 12:16 PM
RainT no much information disclose about who,which and nature of the impairment loss on debtors
01/03/2019 12:17 PM
Valuedude @RainT:

if this is not payable, then I don't understand why the company record it as part of tax expense.. maybe for whatever reason they try to bring the share price down

obviously disclosure is very minimum. only retail shareholder is the one suffering..
01/03/2019 1:11 PM
dericktan but they deducted RM103,430,000 from the retained earnings! (As at 1 January 2019, got RM496,702,000.)

making it RM368,313,000 as at 31 December 2018, even lower than the retained earnings as at 1 January 2013, RM369,861,000.

they just moved 6-7 years backward, although today their business is more profitable than before, but their management seriously ...

keep so much retained earnings also reluctant to distribute special dividend, satu kali give IRB took RM0.1x billion.

k3nthiew KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 10): A water tariff setting mechanism (TSM) is expected to be implemented next year following the Cabinet's approval, said Water, Land and Natural Resources Deputy Minister Tengku Zulpuri Shah Raja Puji.

He said the proposed tariff increase would be minimal, between 0.06 sen and 0.71 sen per 1,000 litres, which is lower compared to other utility charges such as electricity, gas and telecommunications.
