HUGE POTENTIAL EARNINGS AHEAD FOR THIS CO !!! A POTENTIAL TAKEOVER TARGET ???
Hello to all readers out there. Recently, market has been improving a lot due to decrease in COVID19 cases & reopening of sectors.
Having said the above, the stock which I'd like to talk about today is IREKA CORPORATION BERHAD (IREKA - Stock Code 8834, Main Market, Construction)
BASIC INFORMATION ABOUT IREKA
IREKA was founderd in 1967 with core businesses in a few fields:
ii) Real Estate
iv) Urban Transportation
Market Capitalization : RM 148.75 million
Shares Float : 225.38 million
Website : https://ireka.com.my/
1. RM 196 MIL CONTRACT SECURED IN OCTOBER 2021 - A BOOST FOR FUTURE QUARTER EARNINGS
Refer below news extract from 7th October 2021. Ireka had secured a RM 196 million contract for Langkawi connectivity project.
This contract would definitely boost earnings in the upcoming quarter.
The contract itself is larger than the whole market cap of IREKA which is currently at RM 148.75 million.
Based on a potential conservative margin of 10-20% from this project, we are looking at RM 9.8 to 19.6 million earnings in upcoming quarter, which would translate to around 5-9 cents earning per share.
2. JV AGREEMENT WITH WANLAND METRO TO BE MAIN CONTRACTOR FOR THE LATTER'S CONSTRUCTION JOBS
Refer below news clipping highlighting that Ireka's Subsidiary, has signed a JV Agreement with Wanland Metro Sdn Bhd (WMSB) to be the main contractor for the latter's construction jobs.
This JV allows Ireka to increase its construction order books and project pipeline.
On July 15, Ireka secured a RM 124.39 million award from WMSB to construct two 16-storey apartment blocks, single-storey terrace houses, double-storey terrace houses, double-storey shophouses and a food court.
The Board is optimistic on the medium to long term prospects of the construction & property development with this JVA.
3. BRIGHT PROSPECT AS MENTIONED IN LATEST QUARTER RESULTS
Refer below extract from the "Prospects" Section taken from the latest Quarter Results as at End September 2021, a few key notes to be mentioned :
i) IREKA order book stood at RM 670 million, which RM 385 million is outstanding
ii) On 15th July 2021, IREKA unit accepted a LoA from Wanland Metro Sdn Bhd for a sum of RM 124.39 million, for a mixed development in Terengganu
