Operationally, both Assyria and north Sabah were weaker qoq. North Sabah has 2 oil offtakes as opposed to expected single oil offtake. Anasuria has two cargo offloaded as opposed to none qoq (drilling was conducted that time). Those extra sales and highest oil price since 2014 translate into exceptional profit. A great quarter nonetheless, but was it a peak results?

To put that into perspective, that is 32% qoq, 189.7% yoy and incredibly 54.7% of 2016 output!. PWORTH is simply a different animal with the FMU5. However, it still short of the expected 70k if the 100m profit was to be realised....remember, year end to year beginning, output much slower due to monsoon season..

0.22 is a resistance level, also the downward trend line since Jan 2018. Above there, cluster of resistance 100 SMA, 200 SMA and 50% Fibonacci around 0.235/24. Long story short, if buy rate and volume drop, expect a slow grind upwards. Otherwise, a buttery cut through the levels in a day or two opens the doors to 0.275/28 and eventually 0.30 and year high 0.325

There is another options for MBMR shareholder: exchange to UMW share at 21 new UMW share for every 50 MBMR share. Could be a better choice as long as UMW share is staying above 6.09 (excluding brokerages fees, stamp duty and clearing fee)...
2018-03-12 05:42 | Report Abuse
The deal is between UMW as the purchaser and Med Bumikar & Central Shore as the Vendor. Only shareholders of UMW have the right to vote on the deal. Under the takeover rules, UMW is required to extend a mandatory take offer to acquire all the remaining MBMR shares. So, a minority MBMR shareholder doesn’t have the right to vote on the deal but a choice to accept or reject the offer.
2ndly, EPF is an interest party. Latest report indicates EPF has 9.19% stake in UMW (AR2016) and 15.81% stake in MBMR. So, their interest MAY NOT align with minority shareholders. The statement that UMW is not intending to maintain listing status of MBMR gives hint that UMW probably has secured substantial amount of shareholders' commitment to accept the offer. Not too hard to see..add together UMW, EPF and other government based institutional funds, the interested party should hold ~70% of the total share. I would expect more non-government funds to accept as well due to concern of the share liquidities post UMW's acquisition.
MBMR is however obliged to present a 3rd party advice to the shareholders before the acceptance date closure. For those who intend to hold on to the share, the report may represent their last hope to force UMW to raise the offer price. Too bad, shareholders' activism in Malaysia is too weak down to almost non-existance. Things of course would change dramatically better provided another party enters into the frame and starts a bidding war, though chances of that is very very low.

@ Cricketlast, indeed quoted in the announcement on the listing status. Thanks for highlighting. I also concur that UMW undervalue MBMR. Perodua is valued at RM 4.18b. Given MBMR 22.58% stake in Perodua and market capitalization @ RM 2.56 plus debt of RM 1.08b, UMW values other MBMR businesses are mere RM 140m only. At 50.1% stake already acquired, there is still sizeable stake not owned yet... Would UMW be successful in MGO to take MBMR private?

Sapura needs a runrate of RM 2.1 b per quarter to break even, RM 1.2b to be cash flow neutral. Possible (but no certainty) impairment include more than RM 8b in goodwill (current amount in balance sheet) and some RM 9.3b in drilling assets and RM 4.0b in EPC segment. Result will be released within this month. I would rather wait for the release of result than to chase value at the moment. My two cents.
