The Group of companies operation activities mainly comprise of Information Technology Solution and manufactures of wood products. Moving forward into 2019, the company's board has taken a bold move of diversifying its business to information technology solutions, services, and related activities, as a way of generating new revenue streams and reducing the company’s dependence on its core business which is timber based.
Read on as we look at the technical charts and other metrics that highlights why we believe this diversification will increase the company's share price.
ATURMJU 7181: Diversify to Information Technology Solutions
As mentioned in the introduction, the company is diversifying its business towards the development of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software as concluded at the Special Shareholders Meeting on Dec 04, 2018. At the meeting, the board approved the renounceable rights issue of up to 1,008,150,000 irredeemable convertible preference shares on the basis of 15 ICPS for every single ordinary share in ARB.
Based on an article publication on theedgemarkets.com “Last year, the company also initiated its IT business by the award and fulfillment of an IT project to design, develop, install and support ERP solutions with a project value of RM20000. The group also secured three other ERP projects, worth a combined RM5.6 million on October 3, 2018.
The group further secured additional IT projects focusing on providing/maintaining ERP solutions, with a total estimated project value of RM9 million from three other clients. This raises high optimism from the board as they project that the IT business should contribute about 25% or more to the group’s net profit.”
