Question 7: Will the Management kindly provide us the full list of properties as at Dec 2022 or tell us where we can get a copy of the full list?
From FY 2022 quarterly financial report:
Quarter 1 2022: Gross profit RM 238,869,000, PBT RM 143,753,000. Loss on derivatives: 230,011,000
Quarter 2 2022: Gross profit: RM 415,620,000, PBT RM 240,671,000. Derivatives realized loss: RM 207,862,000. Unrealized loss; RM 166,799,000

From Petronm 63th AGM minutes answer to question 18 and 21 on derivatives:
It is not a disadvantage for the company to have derivatives losses since there are corresponding higher physical inventory holding gains which benefit our gross profit.
There will be corresponding higher inventory holding gains even if there will be derivatives losses.
Your above statement on derivatives (loss)/gain is true for quarter 1, quarter 2 and quarter 3 but not on quarter 4.
Question 8: Please explain why quarter 4 loss on derivatives of RM 63,070,000 is much higher than the gross profit of RM 14,766,000?
Question 9: What were the volume (barrels) commodity swap contracts and average USD gain/(loss) per barrel matured on  quarter 1, quarter 2, quarter 3 and quarter 4 FY2022?
FY2022 annual report page 167 & 168
As at 20 March 2023
No. of Units Held: % of Issued Capital
TOTAL: 219,257,798: 81.206
Question 10: With NOSH of 270,000,000 only about 50,742,202 units were held outside of these 30 largest shareholders. Would the BOD consider one to one bonus issues to increase the NOSH so that more people will be able to participate in Petronm share ownerships and become loyal supporters and customers of Petron Service Station?
Thank you
Have a good day
Best Regards
Lee Soon Sheng

Are you sure these are the queations and not the answers to my 10 questions?

2023-05-27 17:45


This is the usual Malaysian way.
Its called KBK
The Questions are given
and then Answers are supplied.

You give your Questions to BOD
then give my Answers to BOD
BOD give you my Answers to you.


This way the entire BOD graduated with First Class Honours.

My questions are actually trying to avoid the P&C by engaging the BOD and Management team to talk a little bit more on Petronm prospects in optimising resources and pursuing better yielding investments in retail network expansion.

petron is actually deretailing.

petron outlets that used to have atm got rid of their atm, unwilling to pay rental.
petron outlets that used to sell fresh food got rid of their fresh food unwilling to have more SKU.
petron outlets total sku had reduced drastically such that many things you want to buy you can ONLY get at Petronas petrol station
petron outlets are anti-Chinese by totally refusing to sell Chinese language newspapers.
Petronas outlets are pro-Chinese coz many selections of Chinese language newspapers.

In any emergency, please ONLY go to Petronas outlets coz they have complete selection of car repair items.

Normal people are externally motivated.
The super rich are internally motivated.

so when Philip jumps from KLCC after losing all his money, you will also jump from KLCC?

2023-05-29 13:35


KLCC already outdated, the newly one "The Merdeka 118" will be the new landmark.

legacy autos having a very very hard time in catching up. I mean China will do well in EV but there will also be non China brands and it will be tesla.

Tesla cannot compete with EVs from VW, Merc & Porsche


and that is the point.........................I have changed my opinion in recent months. All legacy auto companies have big problems and cannot compete with ev companies.
