Compare this two food ingredients manufacturing companies side by side... 3A is relatively much undervalue than AJI. I invested in 3A for their stable growth.

"The revenue of the Group for the current quarter of RM165.167 million was 25.9% higher than RM131.235 million recorded in the corresponding quarter in the preceding year and was mainly due to higher average selling prices and higher quantities of products sold. However, the Group's profit before tax decreased by 15.8% to RM14.363 million from RM17.054 million and was mainly a result of higher main raw materials costs in the current quarter under review" POSITIVE : growth is strong... revenue increasing every year. NEGATIVE : costs gone higher (inflation) affecting its profit margin. Any investors that like the growth narrative should invest in this company.

i find that their store n branding cannot compete with Happy Mart , Family Mart, 7 Eleven. at first i think that's just me. every individual has different taste. but when asked my friends, all view the same. But in Malaysia where 70% of population is Malay, you want to target the Malay appetite .. like TeaLive.. I guess they need to rebrand their MyNews . Even near my place , CU.... i find it can't compete with its competitors. Will this retail share price become like another Parkson?

KNM board is now controlled by TY people. For some strange reason, TY seem to always keen in this sector. Previously, Malaysian Merchant Marine Berhad (MMM) , Trenergy Berhad, Siam Power .. Not good outcome on company level. I honestly don't know why he thinks he can turn around KNM with almost same people. I wonder if they benefited or shouldn't it be "once bitten, twice shy" case?

Compared to ajinomoto which has about same revenue category, 3A is definitely trading at much cheaper valuation in many metrics (P/E, P/BV etc) .

since the market does not value 3A, i think the major shareholders should privatised the company or even Wilmar can just offer wholly.

i still firmly believe MAA will want more than 10% ... doesn't make sense to trade short term at 7% holding.

Better still, own more than 20% or if TY risk appetite is high, then make a general offer hoping to reach 51% after triggering the 33% threshold and make KNM a subsidiary of MAA .. then MAA can take over their book.

after reading online articles about KNM, it's so absurd to have people like LSE and family run a public listed company. Eg. charged for insider trading and even got barred by authority etc etc. so many controversy about its founder

I pity those of you who lost money investing in this company. At the same time I applaud you guys for able to have his cronies out of the board in the end. It is not an easy task. Impressive. Since you guys have manage to group together, I would suggest those shareholders who lost money to seek for legal advice for this injustice. I think you guys will have a very strong case to get damages from the court.

MAA acquired only 33,000,000 shares on 7 Sep. Announcement dated 9 Sep.
Total no of securities after change 266,001,800 shares ( 8%)

Let's see how much MAA acquire on 8 Sep (yesterday where the trading volume was 800 million shares). I'm still convince MAA will increase to more than 10% and try to control the board.

The most important document of this whole takeover is officially out, the Circular. If any disputes, lawsuit etc... It will refer to this Circular.

We will know later today or by this Friday if there is any increment or disposal from MAA. Everyone has their own theory and opinion.

The law require any substantial shareholder (anyone above 5%... that includes LSE and MAA) to notify company of change if there is a change in his interests in the voting shares in the company; within 3 days after the date of change.

I entered KNM at 0.28 only after the MAA announcement, purely based on the speculation that MAA will increase its voting rights to more than 10%. I don't know about KNM before this. After seeing such fragmented shareholdings, no one control over 25%.. I would try to take control of the board if I'm MAA. I am also guessing.

it's hard to subscribe that someone who founded and at helm of the company would sell just because someone advice him to do so.
could it be maybe he knows something that the public does not know ? it's a question. i don't know about KNM. I came to know KNM coz of MAA and from the limited public info or news like https://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/curious-happenings-knm

in fact, I would prefer MAA to make a general offer for KNM. See if it can get more than 50% and make KNM its subsidiary and still maintain listing status of KNM and take full control. It is possible as the shareholdings structure of KNM is so fragmented and no one control 25% ... so ripe to take control.

I am guessing MAA will accumulate more KNM shares to more than 10% shareholding . They have 7 days to disclose the changes in substantial shareholding, still within the disclosure rules. It won’t cost them too much in order to seek for board representation or even boardroom control and to be able to convene a shareholder meeting. Doesn’t make sense if MAA only buy 7% unless it’s short term or purely passive play…

At least we know MAA is prudent in their purchase.

I prefer they buy when the industry is consider at bottom of the cycle or at cheap entry. Buy cheap hoping to sell high. Maybe it will never go high. But at least I don't buy it at high price (boom of the cycle.. or during some euphoria mania eg. glove mania)

maybe MAA already got 10% ? if they are smart which i'm sure they are, they would have acquired more shares from the open market yesterday on 2 sep before all the necessary disclosure. let's see later this evening if there's any notice.

their announcement yesterday dated 2 sep was for accumulation from 3 aug - 1 sep.

"the Company has acquired to date over the period from 3 August 2021 to 1 September 2021 from the open market a total of 233,001,800 ordinary shares of KNM Group Berhad (“KNMG”) at an average price of RM0.227 per share, representing 7.01% of the total issued share capital of KNMG for a total purchase consideration of RM52,891,408.60 "

agree. plantation is still a good bet. most likely we will see more activities, consolidations, privatisations, mergers and acquisitions in the palm oil plantation industry. The way forward is economies of scale to compete globally. I think the big boys will always look out to buy small plantation companies or land if the price is right. last time i bet on this very small plantation in sabah called goldenland bhd. felda fgv bought goldenland bhd assets in sabah for 650 millions. after that the company distribute it as special dividend and reinvest in new palm oil plantation in indonesia.

i don't see how this deal will not go through because the offeror is TS Syed Mokhtar. if it's other people... yes, success probability is lower. So it is a bit strange to me that the share price still trade at such wide discount (almost 10% discount ) to the offer price.

is market 'worry' about why the IA report yet to release since it is more than 2 months now? Is alliance investment bank opinion might say "not fair not reasonable"? i think it is very low probability for all the obvious reasons we know. but hey..., the only certainty is uncertainty.

the company is very inefficient and has relatively low productivity. it cannot compete at all. it used to be government owned and should have remain so. just like civil service. you create jobs to many unnecessary roles but that's what government are for. provide some safety net for those who fall through the cracks of a free competitive capitalist market.

Open Letter to PSA International Pte Ltd.

To : Board of Directors of PSA International Pte Ltd

PSA is known to be aggressive in overseas expansion for stake in some of the world’s busiest and fastest-growing ports. In 2006, PSA had a bidding war with Dubai World Port for Britain P&O port assets around the world. It was a great business move by PSA that resulted its competitor’s cost of acquisition expensive. Subsequently, PSA bought 20% in Hutchinson Ports from Hutchinson Whampoa. Maybe PSA should bid for MMC too!

MMC’s jewel, the Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas is Singapore’s main competition in transhipment. PTP recorded an astonishing 8.5% growth last year despite the pandemic. Why not bid for a strategic stake in MMC ports? This is a great opportunity for PSA to have a strategic business stake in Malaysia port assets. Show them your muscles. Make a general offer . It will be just “a drop in the ocean” for PSA anyway. Think when PTP pulled your customers (Maersk, Evergreen) away. Why let TS Syed Mokhtar get it so easily.

Looking forward to your offer.

Yours sincerely,
MMC shareholder.
