Cnergenz first target RM2.0

Stock

2 months ago | Report Abuse

The annualized profit after tax over the past 2 quarters is RM25.874M.

At a PE of 40, its share price will be RM2.08.

As at 30th June 2022, the company's cash balance is RM103.163M and has no borrowings.

The industry size for SMT manufacturing solutions in Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand, where Cnergenz presently operates, are forecasted to grow at CAGRs of 7.2%, 8.0% and 8.0%, respectively, between year 2022 and 2024.

So given the current capacity, the company is on-track to perform better.

The proposed new facility of 130k sq ft is over 5 times the size of the current headquarters.

If the company's profit after tax can reach RM100M per year and at PE of 40, it's share price can potentially reach RM8.

Penta used to be only 0.02 per share and Mr Chuah took it to more than 4.0

With new leadership and rising revenue and profits; the potential of Aimflex is very good.

Who knows, maybe Aimflex can reach 4.0 someday.

...The company’s business now involves end-to-end design, development and commissioning of production line systems. And it has been catering to the electronic and semiconductor industry. It has amassed a wide portfolio of clients across industries.

“We have established working relationships with our customers and suppliers that spans across 12 to 17 years. We try to provide them with the best solutions that are not only cost effective but also increase their productivity...

...Since the early 2000s, a number of industry players migrated from Malaysia to Thailand due to lower manufacturing costs. Yhin Choy says Cnergenz followed that trend and this is what helped it venture into Thailand since 2006.

In 2008, the group also ventured into Vietnam.

“Owing to our strong presence in Malaysia, we actually went to support our clients who were opening up new subsidiaries and factories in Thailand then....

...

Balanced contribution

Presently, sales from Thailand and Vietnam account for 50% of revenue while local sales make up the other half.

Other economic factors like the US-China trade diversion, China+1 policy and deglobalisation will help its growth momentum, moving forward, Yhin Choy says.

“Our business relies on our clients’ capital expenditure (capex) spending. With all these economic factors at play, many multinational corporations that are operating in China will be looking to set up their operations in other countries.

“We believe that the bulk of these transfers will fall within the three markets that we operate in and for the next three to five years, capex spending is expected to be very high in these regions,” says Thim Loong.

He adds that the rise of digitalisation will also benefit Cnergenz.

“With digitalisation, there are components like IR4.0, 5G and electric vehicles that are driving it. There is no such thing as going backwards once digitalisation happens.

CharlesT,

I was also in SFP. Got out already.

Cnergen's customer profile and business lines are better.

Not sure if SFP can post better results. PSA pointed out that capacity utilization is low and their margins at 40% compared to it's customer's margin of 10% (SAM Eng) looks odd.

After that, 360M shares will be under moratorium for another 6 months.

When SFP Tech's share price hits RM2.00, the majority shareholder's block of shares will be worth RM1.1B.

Hopefully, he will just sell 25M shares or so and let the balance grow in value.

At RM3.8, he will be sitting on RM2B+

There is a big issue with Pentamaster. It hardly pay any taxes. As such, the company can have fake customers, fake revenue and fake profits.

And C B Chuah's story is getting inconsistent.

Q1 2022 financial results stated that EV market have fuelled the demand for the Group’s automotive test solutions. However, the company's website at https://pentamaster.com.my does not have any information on EV automotive test solutions.

And out-of-the-blue, the company releases a PR statement that it has 300 semiconductor test equipment and 20 robotic production lines orders.

Suddenly, no more customers for EV automotive test solutions. Who are the customers for the EV automotive and semiconductor test equipment?


"In 1Q2022, revenue from the ATE segment increased by RM43.5 million to RM130.5 million (4Q2021: RM87.0 million), representing an increase of 50.1%.

The increase was largely driven by the demand from the automotive segment given the global momentum in structurally shifting towards EV. Such resilience and growth in the EV market have fuelled the demand for the Group’s automotive test solutions entailing a full range of assembly and test technologies from front-end to back-end solutions. With vehicle manufacturers’ increasingly ambitious electrification plans coupled with supportive regulatory frameworks, the automotive industry will remain robust and contribute positively to the Group’s revenue in the short to medium term."


https://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2022/07/11/pentamaster-order-book-full-till-first-quarter-of-2023

Group executive chairman C B Chuah told StarBiz that the group had secured about RM500mil worth of products to be delivered in the second half till the first quarter of 2023.

“The orders comprise about 300 semiconductor test equipment and 20 robotic production lines.

“The test equipment is priced between RM1mil and RM3mil and the robotic lines between RM5mil and RM10mil.

“The customers are from Europe, the United States and Japan,” he added.

Greatech or GreatScam?

As at 10th Dec 2021, Greatech's market cap was at a dizzying level of RM8,464M and PE ratio that is close to 100.

Greatech's website at greatech-group.com listed it's product and services as - Solar, Electronic Devices, Semiconductor, Life Science, Energy Storage and Glass Substrate.

It's FY2020 annual reported that Customer A, Customer B and Customer C accounted for 95% of the year's revenue. (Between 2019 and 2020, contribution by Customer B dropped by almost RM104M but a new Customer C contributed RM158M in 2020, a period of global pandemic).

Receivables increased sharply to RM125.559M for the quarter ended 30 September 2021.

Taxes paid for the first 9 months of 2021 is only 0.8% of PBT.

It appears that Greatech derived it's revenue primarily from EV customers.

However, the customers have not been specifically named, with the exception of Atlis Motor Vehicles. Altis Motor Vehicles is just a start-up and the amount of money that it has managed to raised through crowdfunding was only about USD5M.

It is inaccurate to state that ATA has 'already loss 80% revenue', because the contract will run until June 2022. ATA will lose 80% of revenue by June 2022 if they do not do anything with their factory capacity. Under such circumstances, companies will do invariably do something. For instance, VS has lost RM1B worth of revenue when Victory Innovations cancelled their contract.

The market is pricing in end-of-the-world situation for ATA due to negative publicity created by Andy Hall.

If potential revenue drop is the only proxy for share price, Air Asia will be worth only 0.16 because AA's actual revenue dropped by 90% compared to 2019.

And even if ATA's revenue were to drop to about RM850M per year, it is still double that of Greatech's annual revenue of RM400M+. If revenue is the only proxy, ATA's market cap ought to be double that of Greatech's market cap. However, ATA's market cap of RM789M is one-tenth that of Greatech's market cap of RM8,327M.

FDA NEWS RELEASE
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: FDA Authorizes First Oral Antiviral for Treatment of COVID-19

For Immediate Release: December 22, 2021

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for Pfizer’s Paxlovid (nirmatrelvir tablets and ritonavir tablets, co-packaged for oral use) for the treatment of mild-to-moderate coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in adults and pediatric patients (12 years of age and older weighing at least 40 kilograms or about 88 pounds) with positive results of direct SARS-CoV-2 testing, and who are at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19, including hospitalization or death. Paxlovid is available by prescription only and should be initiated as soon as possible after diagnosis of COVID-19 and within five days of symptom onset.

“Today’s authorization introduces the first treatment for COVID-19 that is in the form of a pill that is taken orally — a major step forward in the fight against this global pandemic,” said Patrizia Cavazzoni, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “This authorization provides a new tool to combat COVID-19 at a crucial time in the pandemic as new variants emerge and promises to make antiviral treatment more accessible to patients who are at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19.”

...

Paxlovid significantly reduced the proportion of people with COVID-19 related hospitalization or death from any cause by 88% compared to placebo among patients treated within five days of symptom onset and who did not receive COVID-19 therapeutic monoclonal antibody treatment. In this analysis, 1,039 patients had received Paxlovid, and 1,046 patients had received placebo and among these patients, 0.8% who received Paxlovid were hospitalized or died during 28 days of follow-up compared to 6% of the patients who received placebo. The safety and effectiveness of Paxlovid for the treatment of COVID-19 continue to be evaluated.

Sham activist, Andy Hall, will be sued for billions.

Andy Hall has gone to the extent of pinning a manufactured video in his Twitter front page. In the video, Andy Hall has described the video as SHOCKING and that foreign workers were seemingly running from a factory.

(ATA IMS’s operations are housed in 28 factories and warehouses in Johor. Its total production floor space exceeds 1.48 million square feet.)

However, if you were to look at the video carefully, you will notice that:

i3lurker,

I was referring to the tin industry's price dropping by 50% in 1985. And today, China is the biggest producer of tin in the world.

Is there another industry whereby ASP is dropping sharply and China's market share has increased from 16% to 20+% and soon will be the biggest producer?

Once the brightest start of the Malaysian economy, Malaysia only produces less than 1.5% of total world tin production.

The main reason was due to the total collapse of the world tin industry in October 1985 when the price of tin fell by more than 50%.

The forced labor allegations, first in glove and palm oil companies and now in EMS companies, have been made by Andy Hall and A. Ananthalakshmi of Reuters.

Whichever company that does not 'reach out' will be attacked by Andy Hall and A. Ananthalakshmi of Reuters.

Andy Hall has gone to the extent of pinning a manufactured video in his Twitter front page. In the video, Andy Hall has described the video as SHOCKING and that foreign workers were seemingly running from a factory.

(ATA IMS’s operations are housed in 28 factories and warehouses in Johor. Its total production floor space exceeds 1.48 million square feet.)

However, if you were to look at the video carefully, you will notice that:

- the video was not taken in a factory, but in a store or warehouse area

- a few workers were climbing down from a second storey platform that is full of finished products

- no workers were seen running from the warehouse ( described as factory by Andy)

i3lurker,

Probably Sri Trang is running at full capacity; while Top Glove and Blue Sail are producing based on forecast.

Their strategies will be different because:
- cost structures are different (Thailand, where Sri Trang, is the biggest producer of latex. Korea, Japan and US are the biggest producers of acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber )
- tax structures are different (Blue Sail taxed at 9%, Sri Trang taxed at 8%, Top Glove taxed at 22%)
- Malaysia used to enjoy comparative advantage in the form of lower costs of labor. However, now that activists are insisting that the workers need to sleep on 1200 thread count Sheridan sheets, rooms that are decorated by Martha Stewart, and meals prepared by Michelin-starred chefs; the cost advantage has been eroded.

Like the Tulip mania, issues like capacity and cost do not matter when the bubble burst.

The Business School Question
This case study is purely administrative and does not reflect which company is in any way better or worse off.


Option A
This strategy runs factory at 100% and put excess production into warehouse

Option B
Run factory based on sales forecast.

1) Please link the abovementioned 3 financials with Options A and B, which is which?

2) Which Option has less or more risks? Please illustrate.

3) What are the long term consequences of Options A and B?

4) Did these companies select their Options A and B strategies appropriately based on their financial abilities?

5) Could and should these companies had restructured their financials in order to change their decision making in order to select a more favorable option?

THE PAST

At an output of 600k plus metric tonnes per year, Malaysia ranks 6 in terms of major producer of latex. The biggest producer of latex is Thailand with close to 5M metric tonnes per year.

Malaysian glove factories use only 8% of locally sourced rubber. 92% is imported from Thailand.

Rubber price has increased from USD1.33/kg in April 2020 to USD2.37/kg in March 2021 before moderating to USD1.93/kg in Nov 2021

Greatech or GreatScam?

As at 10th Dec 2021, Greatech's market cap was at a dizzying level of RM8,464M and PE ratio that is close to 100.

Greatech's website at greatech-group.com listed it's product and services as - Solar, Electronic Devices, Semiconductor, Life Science, Energy Storage and Glass Substrate.

It's FY2020 annual reported that Customer A, Customer B and Customer C accounted for 95% of the year's revenue. (Between 2019 and 2020, contribution by Customer B dropped by almost RM104M but a new Customer C contributed RM158M in 2020, a period of global pandemic).

Receivables increased sharply to RM125.559M for the quarter ended 30 September 2021.

Taxes paid for the first 9 months of 2021 is only 0.8% of PBT.

It appears that Greatech derived it's revenue primarily from EV customers.

However, the customers have not been specifically named, with the exception of Atlis Motor Vehicles. Altis Motor Vehicles is just a start-up and the amount of money that it has managed to raised through crowdfunding was only about USD5M.

successor26,

Thanks for the article.

The Human Resources Minister, MOHR, JTK Johor and HRDC have already stated that ATA’s employees’ accommodations are at a satisfactory level.

If there was a grey area, it will be with regard to excessive overtime hours.

But the decision to perform overtime lies with the workers, solely on voluntary basis.

Furthermore, 60A(1A) of the Employment Act allows for hours to be exceeded under special circumstances. The inability to bring in foreign workers during the MCO will be considered as special circumstances.


60A. Hours of work
(1A) The Director General may, on the written application of an employer, grant permission to the employer to enter into a contract of service with any one or more of his employees, or with any class, category or description of his employees, requiring the employee or employees, or the class, category or description of employees, as the case may be, to work in excess of the limit of hours prescribed under subsections (1) (a), (b), (c) and (d) but subject to such conditions, if any, as the Director General may deem proper to impose, if he is satisfied that there are special circumstances pertaining to the business or undertaking of the employer which renders it necessary or expedient to grant such permission:

There might be elements of sabotage.

If anyone were to visit the following site and to view the picture in the site, the immediate reaction will be disgust towards ATA.

Foreign workers at Dyson supplier allege exploitation – UK report
https://theworldnews.net/my-news/foreign-workers-at-dyson-supplier-allege-exploitation-uk-report

However, the picture was not taken from ATA's worker hostel!

The picture was taken in a hostel on the 2nd floor of a premise in USJ Subang Jaya and the real news was about the living conditions of workers who were fired by unnamed 3 SMEs in Subang Jaya as a result of the MCO in early 2020.

The issue is not about fact-checking before publishing any report.

If fake evidence was deliberately planted and/or taken out of context, the issue will be deliberate sabotage.


oskchoon Ataims official statement that Andy Hall fabricated forced labour accusation to bring bad reputation to our Malaysian EMS. Industry to force Dyson terminated the supply contracts so that the said contracts can be given to another company favour to him..

ATA IMS Clarifies Reuters Report,
Company Firmly Committed to Wellbeing of Employees and Ethical Practices

JOHOR BARU, Tuesday, 7 December 2021: ATA IMS Berhad (“ATA”) views with great concern a recent report by Reuters titled ‘Dyson splits with Malaysia supplier, stoking concern over migrant worker treatment’, which was published on its website on Sunday, 5 December 2021.

ATA wishes to provide clarifications to the report, which it hopes will help readers to have a better perspective on ATA’s continuous and concerted efforts in addressing and improving its labour and social compliance standard and practices, and ensuring a positive business continuity.

1. Workers’ overtime:
• ATA’s company policy strictly adheres to Malaysian labour law, which permits up to 104 hours on normal working days in a month. If workers perform overtime, it is solely on voluntary basis.
• The Company pays workers double pay for working on Sundays and triple pay for working on public holidays.
• In certain months, which have four (4) Sundays and public holidays, a few managers had allowed their workers to work beyond the number of hours allowed.
• ATA views this seriously and has taken remedial measures effective immediately to ensure that this does not reoccur.
• The Company has started implementing a zero overtime on Sunday policy; that unfortunately resulted in the resignation of close to 300 local and foreign workers in the first week of December 2021.

2. Work permits:
• As of to date, all workers on the premises of ATA have valid work permits.
• Challenges with regards to work permits faced by the Company and others within the industry/sector occurred during the Movement Control Order (MCO), when the relevant government offices were running at limited capacity.

3. Coaching of factory employees:
• The Company employs 222 supervisors within the entire business unit, who diligently perform their duties to ensure the smooth running of their divisions and the wellbeing of the employees under their supervision.
• In reference to Reuters’ reporting, only one supervisor was engaged in a highly uncommon incident of coaching employees on what to say to auditors.
• The Company wishes to stress that this is not a company policy and views seriously such non-compliance.
• Towards this, remedial action has been taken against the aforesaid employee.

4. Whistleblowing policy and channels:
• There are external whistleblowing channels operated by independent third parties, supported by the Malaysian Government and the Company’s Human Resources department.
• These channels are in multiple languages; are well promoted and publicised on the Company’s premises; and any reports through these channels go directly to the Company’s customers’ legal teams and the Malaysian authorities.
• The Company wishes to state that these complaints were not previously raised through any of these channels.

5. Former worker Dhan Kumar Limbu:
• The Company refers to another recent Reuters report with regards to foreign worker Dhan Kumar Limbu, which was published on Reuters’ website on Thursday, 25 November 2021.
• The Company wishes to inform that the Johor police has issued a statement on Saturday, 27 November 2021 stating that to date, it has not received any reports regarding the alleged physical abuse by the police of the aforesaid ATA worker.
• The Company had also engaged a prominent law firm, which conducted an independent audit. Based on its findings, the law firm concluded that the allegation made by the aforesaid worker is unjustified and unsubstantiated, and unlikely to have taken place.

ATA remains committed to ensuring the wellbeing of its local and foreign workforce as it delivers quality products and services to its customers in over 80 countries. ATA has a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) compliance audit planned for December 2021. The Company expects to pass this audit, validating its efforts in this area.

Towards this, ATA requests for Reuters to publish our response, enabling its readers and all interested stakeholders to have a balanced view of the issues highlighted in its reporting.

calvintaneng,

If Ta Ann is such an honest company that is enjoying high CPO prices and EBITDA, why is the company hiring 'forced labour' and not paying the 12-13% statutory EPF employer contribution?
