https://www.amanatlr.com/about-us.html Amanat Lebuhraya Rakyat Berhad ("ALR") is a private company established under the Companies Act 2016, in late 2021, with the sole purpose of undertaking the business of a holding company of highway concessions. ALR is in the process of acquiring four highway concession companies, Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS), Western Kuala Lumpur Dispersal Link (SPRINT Highway), Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP) and Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (SMART), by raising funds through Sustainability Sukuk or Sustainable Responsible Investment Sukuk.
ALR and its subsidiaries will be overseen by a board of directors ("BoD") and the four concession companies will continue to operate and perform maintenance of the highways with the existing management team and staff intact, upon the completion of our proposed acquisition.
ALR's BoD have full fiduciary duty to the company's capital providers. ALR's BoD are also its shareholders and ALR's shareholders are its BoD.
ALR's shareholders are "not-for-profit" motivated and thus cannot extract any dividends nor distribution whatsoever, from ALR.
Therefore, all and any profits generated through the operation of these four highway concessions must be channelled purely for the servicing and early redemption of ALR's financial debts, which is solely to the benefit of the motoring rakyat since ALR is obligated to return the concessions to the Government as soon as its financial debts have been fully redeemed.
Under our ALR structure, the more traffic there is on our highways, the shorter the concession will be.

Q2 result will be out end of next week. I guess EPS will be around 1.5 sen. So, price will be down again as cummulative 4 quarter EPS may only about 6 sen. If trade with 12x, then the price may be about 70 sen. So, trade carefully.
