The company submitted its application to Bursa on 6 Mar 2024 to request for upliftment of its PN17 classification. Hopefully, Bursa would announce its decision right after the company announcing its first quarterly earnings by 31 May 2024. Meanwhile, let's pray for more job orders being procured.

Epicon could be the next Binastra in the making... as it is estimated that Epicon would have job orders worth close to RM1.4bil too upon the finalization of the detailed JV terms with Permodalan Negeri Selangor Berhad.

Epicon's current market capitalization is RM262m only while Binastra's market capitalization is RM760m with RM1.4bil job orders in hand.

The Gross Development Value of the proposed project could be at least RM563 mil as the selling price of the 2,252 units of Rumah Idaman MBI should start at RM250,000 per unit. So, this will likely translate into a potential job order of at least RM450m for Epicon upon finalization of the detailed terms & conditions for the project.

I guess that many people may not realize that its on-going RM806 mil Queensville Phase 2 may contribute significantly to its P&L for FY2024. The project is located in a very matured area in KL where demand for residential properties remains robust.

Hopefully research houses would start covering and promoting this counter once it has been granted approval to exit PN17 classification. It needs to go limit up in order to attract attention from research houses.

Exiting PN17 classification will enable it to get bank loans more easily to undertake more sizable jobs.

This article may help explain why it is good to capitalize and ride on the data centre industry which should be blooming for the next 5 years given that Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become more and more important in all industries. AI needs a lot more of data centres which also need a lot more of solar power to comply with ESG thingy. Malaysia is also an ideal place for data centres due to abundance of sunlights and relatively cheap land.

Some profit could have been deferred to next quarter earning reporting which is the first quarter for FY2024. Likely the company would report at least RM40m net profit for 2024 in order to bring it to next level of growth. Otherwise, a new CEO will be appointed to chart the new growth for the company.

Upon the Subscription Shares being allotted to the Company, the Company will have an
equity stake of 20% in MSRGE. MSRGE shall have the right to convert the MSRGE ICPS
to ordinary shares in MSRGE at a conversion ratio of one (1) new ordinary share in
MSRGE for every one (1) MSRGE ICPS as and when MSRGE allot and issue any ordinary share to other shareholders of MSRGE, so that the Company’s 20% equity stake in
MSRGE will be maintained at all times.

The Proposed MSRGE Investment will also provide an avenue for Seal Group to progressively transform into an environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) entity which will accord Seal Group with greater recognition and support amongst investors, in particular among the larger institutional investors who invest based on ESG criteria.
Every year, about 43% of climate finance (USD30.6 billion) flowing from developed to developing countries is channelled to Asia.

MSRGE, with a solid track record in commissioning more than approximately 140MWp solar PV, expects to benefit from the above programme launched by the government as these new quotas will come with EPCC works which is one of MSRGE’s key strength. The key management of MSRGE also equipped with experience in commissioning the floating solar PV in Malaysia as well as the large-scale solar which will provide competitive advantages to MSRGE in EPCC jobs bidding for the solar PV quota launched by the government.

MSRGE also aims to become a RE assets owner and venture into EPCC for other RE
technologies.

In essence, SEAL will transform into a Renewable Energy player which will ride on the robust and growing RE business sector for the next 5 years especially in relation to the on-going booming development of data centers which normally prefer to be partially powered by solar energy in order to be in compliance with the ESG requirements.

TSA Group upbeat on industry outlook

“For example, the food industry needs to use stainless steel for their equipment to comply with the [food security] standards. The oil and gas [sector] needs low-carbon steel products, and the green energy sector, particularly solar systems, needs a lot of brackets to support their panels, and the brackets are also supplied by us,” said Chew.

He highlighted that customers prefer stainless steel over mild steel because of its durability and resistance to rust, further fuelling demand for TSA's products. The company's customer base primarily comprises fabricators specialising in transforming stainless steel into various end products.

Established in 1993, TSA supplies a wide range of metal products, including stainless steel plates, bars, coils and pipes. The group has a presence in Malaysia and Singapore, as well as other foreign markets, such as Thailand, Australia, Bangladesh, France, Indonesia, the Maldives, New Zealand, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and the UK.

PETALING JAYA: Genetec Technology Bhd has seen a recent pullback in its share price mainly due to growing concerns over moderating electric vehicle (EV) demand, triggered most recently by US-based car rental company Hertz scaling back on EVs.

However, CGS-CIMB Research believes that this is a good buying opportunity, with catalysts from strong order wins from the company’s EV and auto customers and demand surge for its battery energy storage systems (BESS) solutions.

Genetec declined 14% over the past week to close at RM2.01 on Jan 19 as investors became jittery over news indicating softening EV demand globally since the fourth quarter of 2023 (4Q23), including the scaling back of new EV model launches by brands and EV price cuts.

“Our recent checks with the the company’s management indicate that the outlook for the group’s EV and energy storage segments remains resilient,” the research house said.

It ran a scenario analysis on various growth-rate assumptions for Genetec’s EV business for the financial year 2024 (FY24) and FY25 and concluded that the current share price levels reflect a 30% annual decline in FY24 and FY25 EV revenue.

“We think this is excessive considering Genetec’s sole EV customer has a healthy pipeline of new model launches, including a new mass-market EV model by 2024 which should continue to support decent order flows for the company,” CGS-CIMB Research added.

According to the research house, Genetec had also guided previously during its Nov 23 analysts’ briefing that it aims to obtain additional work within its EV/auto segments, such as battery assembly and regenerative braking system production lines.

This could add RM200mil to its current orderbook by end-FY23 and FY24.

The research house added that Genetec had received purchase orders for 10 megawatt hours (MWh) worth of BESS capacity for small projects, likely to be rolled out by 2H24.

Genetec has also participated in tenders for the rollout of 705MWh worth of BESS capacity across various domestic projects, which could translate to a sizeable increase in its BESS orderbook.

In addition, the company has also identified over 4 gigawatt hour (GWh) worth of BESS capacity needs within the South-East Asia and Middle East regions that it can compete for.

It maintained an “add” call on Genetec with a Gordon Growth Model-target price of RM3.60.

The counter is currently trading at a 14 times calendar year 2025 price to earnings ratio, which is a 44% discount to the average basket of local automation solution providers’ 25.2 times.

I don't have a target price yet. I intend to invest for a longer term to see the transformation journey of Epicon until it delivers net profit in excess of RM150 million p.a.
The major shareholder namely the Doh Family had successfully transformed another company Lagenda Properties (fka DBE which was a PN17 company too) into a sizable and successful public listed company which delivered net profit of RM200 mil within a year or two after the takeover. So I believe and hope that the Doh Family would duplicate their previous success in Epicon given that their good track record and strong business acumen. Meanwhile, just sit tight and ride with the transformation journey.
Happy New Year.

True enough that a piece of good news has now been delivered approx. 3 weeks after announcement of its 3rd quarter result.
The Gross Development Value of the proposed project could be at least RM563 mil as the selling price of the 2,252 units of Rumah Idaman MBI should start at RM250,000 per unit. Hopefully more good news or construction job wins would be announced in the next 2 months before the announcements of its 4th quarter result as well as the upliftment of its PN17 classifications.
