(吉隆坡6日讯)绿盛世国际(EWINT,5283,主板产业股)建议,将公司股本再度削资5亿令吉,以在2024及2025财政年(10月底结账)派发最多5亿400万令吉的股息。

以绿盛世国际目前总共24亿1780股的总股票数量来计算,该公司相当于计划在2024及2025财年,总共派发最多每股21仙的股息。

绿盛世国际今天通过文告称,再度削资的目的之一,是为了帮助公司达到接下来2年的派息目标。

在扣除营运资金和融资需求,以及达到销售目标的情况下,绿盛世国际计划在2024及2025财年,最多派发5亿400万令吉股息予股东。

同时,绿盛世国际称,通过进一步削资,该公司也将获得额外空间,可能派发比原定目标更多的股息。

在新一轮的削资完成后,绿盛世国际打算在现财年,先派发总共1亿4400万令吉,相当于每股6仙的第一轮股息。

该公司将在来届股东大会,寻求股东批准削资议案,而削资预计将在今年上半年完成。

绿盛世国际总裁兼总执行长拿督张良成在文告中称,该公司在短期内并没有任何推出新项目或收购的计划,因此,所需营运资金预计比往年少,而考虑种种因素后,公司决定继续通过股权来创造现金。

对股东最有利

“董事部相信,向股东回退额外创造的现金,是对所有股东最有利的方案。”

他补充,英镑对令吉强势升值,让该公司得以在转换汇率时,获得以令吉结算的更高收入,同时该公司的负债率目前接近零,旗下只有一家联营公司背负一项银行贷款。

在这之前,绿盛世国际在2023财年已经削资了15亿令吉,并派发了7亿9200万令吉或每股33仙的中期股息,以及1亿4400万令吉或每股6仙的终期股息。

闭市时,绿盛世国际报31.5仙,无起落,成交量144万1400股。

Eco World International Bhd

Although Eco World International Bhd (EWI) is loss-making, the property developer, which has a presence in the UK and Australia, is set to continue paying out dividends for the current financial year ending Oct 31, 2024 (FY2024).

According to Maybank Investment Bank Research, EWI is likely to pay another RM600 million, or 25 sen per share, as dividends in FY2024. For FY2023, the property developer has paid out RM792 million and will be paying out RM144 million on Jan 17, 2024, bringing total dividends for the financial year to RM936 million, or 39 sen per share.

Maybank IB Research’s forecast dividend per share of 25 sen translates into a yield of 81.9%, based on EWI’s share price of 30.5 sen last Friday.

EWI has been in the red since FY2022, reporting losses after tax (LAT) of RM234.42 million, on account of the challenging operating environment as central banks around the world embarked on monetary tightening and higher costs as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war, tight labour market and supply chain disruptions. Because of these factors, cost revisions were required on several ongoing projects, which reduced gross margins.

For FY2023, its LAT narrowed to RM85.37 million.

Nevertheless, the group strengthened its balance sheet on the back of stronger sales, turning net cash in FY2022. Its net cash position improved to RM295.24 million as at Oct 31, 2023, from RM172.53 million a year ago.

In its latest quarterly financial statements, EWI said it aimed to sell completed or nearly completed houses worth RM850 million as at Oct 31, 2023, in FY2024, and distribute the excess cash generated (net of working capital requirements) back to shareholders. It added that launches for its “remaining sites continue to be put on hold”, pending feasibility reviews, given the weak sentiment among homebuyers and significant cost inflation.

Maybank IB Research, the only brokerage covering EWI, expects the group to remain loss-making until it decides to launch new projects. It has a “hold” call on EWI, with a target price of 26 sen.

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 13): Eco World International Bhd's (EWI) net loss narrowed to RM37.69 million for the fourth quarter ended Oct 31, 2023 (4QFY2023), from RM95.73 million in the previous year’s corresponding period.

The improvement is thanks to a foreign exchange (forex) gain of RM15.53 million in the quarter under review, compared to a forex loss of RM5.33 million in 4QFY2022 due to the appreciation of the British pound against the ringgit as a result of the repayment of advances by its UK joint venture (JV) EcoWorld-Ballymore and the conversion of British pound-denominated bank balances.

There was also a reversal of impairment on investment in EcoWorld-Ballymore of RM64.67 million following significant progress in monetisation of inventories during the year — although this was offset by impairment losses on the amount owing by Eco World London of RM90.96 million — as well as lower finance costs as a result of full settlement of all borrowings in the previous quarter, said EWI in a bourse filing.

Revenue for 4QFY2023, however, dropped 33.82% to RM28.55 million from RM43.14 million, mainly due to the lower number of units sold and handed over to customers.

EWI declared a final dividend of six sen per share in the quarter, which translates to RM144 million, payable on Jan 14.

Combined with the RM792 million dividend already distributed, the group’s total dividends for FY2023 amounted to RM936 million, surpassing the targeted excess cash distribution of RM900 million set last year.

For FY2023, EWI's net loss was lower at RM85.37 million from RM234.42 million a year ago, despite revenue declining 34.49% to RM104.8 million from RM159.96 million.

The group achieved RM1.18 billion in sales plus reserves of RM114 million, bringing total sales for FY2023 to RM1.30 billion, with Embassy Gardens being the largest contributor at RM617 million, followed by RM215 million from Wardian and RM107 million from London City Island.

As at end-October, EWI still has about RM850 million of completed and nearly completed stocks that are available for sale, said its president and chief executive officer Datuk Teow Leong Seng.

“EWI’s effective share of these stocks is approximately RM650 million. With regard to all launches for the remaining sites, these will continue to be put on hold given the ongoing weak sentiment amongst homebuyers and significant cost inflation in the UK. We will consider proceeding with launches only when market conditions improve, cost pressures stabilise and expected returns that meet the group’s requirements can be forecast with greater certainty,” he said.

“As such, EWI’s target for FY2024 is to sell out all our remaining completed and near completed stocks with the aim of distributing the excess cash generated back to our shareholders, net of the amounts required for the group’s pared down operational requirements,” he added.

Shares of EWI closed up half a sen or 1.41% at 36 sen on Wednesday, giving the group a market capitalisation of RM864 million.

KUALA LUMPUR: RHB Research has reduced Ranhill Utilities Bhd's profit projections for the fiscal years 2023 to 2025 (FY23F-FY24F) by 11 per cent, nine per cent, and nine per cent as it adjusts its assumptions upward.

The investment bank said it expects stronger earnings in the coming quarters due to recognition of backdated billings of the water tariff hike from August to December 2022 in the first half of 2023 (1H23), as well as increased recognition of its engineering services projects such as the RM210 million detailed engineering design job for Saipem in Qatar.

It added that moving forward, prospects for Ranhill include the Indonesian Djuanda source-to-tap water project, whereby the company-led consortium may participate in a public tender via initiator status once feasibility studies are approved.

"Rerating catalysts include a potential boost in FY23F dividend payout if Ranhill partly utilises cash proceeds from the non-revenue water reduction incentive in FY22, coupled with opportunities to participate in more power plant projects in Sabah, with 200 megawatts (MW) of generating capacity expected to come on stream in 2024 and 2025.

"Ranhill has two existing combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plants with a capacity of 190 MW, in addition to the latest bid secured in March for a 100 MW CCGT on Sabah's West Coast," it said in a note today.

Meanwhile, RHB Research said Ranhill's first quarter ended March 31, 2023 (1Q23) core profit of RM11.1 million, which was an increase of 61 per cent year-on-year (y-o-y) was below its estimates but met Street's – making up 19 per cent and 21 per cent of full year projections, respectively.

It added that the negative deviation was partly due to a higher-than-expected cost of sales.

RHB Research has maintained a "Buy" call on Ranhill, with a new sum of parts (SOP)-derived target price of RM0.72.

It said risks to its call include lower-than-expected water consumption, developer contributions, and failure to secure new contracts under the services arm.

“GDEX 2.0 is an ecosystem for the future. It entails building a complete logistics ecosystem of technology partners and synergistic businesses in Malaysia and South-East Asia,” said Teong.

HAVING seen its Malaysian last-mile delivery business badly impacted by cut-throat pricing driven by the entry of foreign giants, GDEX Bhd has set in motion a pivot which holds promise.

Dubbing its new venture GDEX 2.0, the move is one that aims to morph the group into a provider of technology-based solutions from cybersecurity, to eCommerce and payment solutions for businesses.

KUALA LUMPUR (April 20): Property developer OCR Group Bhd has maintained that there is no operational impact on the group arising from the lawsuit filed by a former contractor over alleged payment default of RM30.93 million in relation to projects in Kuantan and Petaling Jaya.

The claims by the ex-contractor, Kencana Amanjaya Sdn Bhd, are baseless and frivolous, said OCR in a statement on Thursday (April 20), adding that it has instructed its solicitors to contest the matter to fully defend its interest.

On Wednesday, OCR said Kencana is claiming alleged outstanding debt of RM16.38 million from its 90%-owned subsidiary, OCR Properties (Kuantan) Sdn Bhd, relating to the PRIYA Kuantan project.

The group said Kencana was appointed as the contractor for this project in January 2018 but was terminated in April 2021.

OCR added that Kencana is similarly claiming alleged outstanding debt of RM14.55 million from the group's wholly-owned subsidiary, OCR Construction Sdn Bhd, relating to the YOLO Signature Suites project, for which Kencana was appointed as contractor in May 2019 but terminated in April 2021.

In its statement on Thursday, OCR said PRIYA Kuantan is the largest affordable housing scheme in Kuantan, comprising 1,124 units of single-storey terrace houses and semi-detached homes within the RM125,000 to RM254,000 price range.

The project is a 50:50 joint venture between OCR Properties and Yayasan Pahang to develop the 100-acre land in Kuantan.

The RM166 million gross development value (GDV) project has been fully sold since its launch, with OCR set to deliver vacant possession of the first phase of 394 units in the second quarter of 2023. The balance 730 units are slated for vacant possession in the third quarter of 2023.

On the YOLO Signature Suites in Bandar Sunway, Petaling Jaya, OCR said it is cmpleting construction in the second quarter of 2023, having marked the topping up in December 2022.

The group said the low density 40-storey high-rise features 395 exclusive units, and the contract value amounts to RM159.6 million.

“We are tracking the market-appropriate timing for new launches of residential properties in the mid-term in strategic locations across diversified segments, from affordable housing and exclusive sub-urban condominiums, to condominiums,” said OCR Group managing director Billy Ong Kah Hoe.

He added that the group was simultaneously diversifying its property segment coverage to include the commercial segment, initially through the integrated e-commerce logistics hub which will also build a platform for sustainable earnings for the group.

OCR shares closed unchanged at 8.5 sen, valuing the group at RM84.15 million.

This list is not a buy or sell recommendation. It merely tells you which stocks are seeing higher-than-normal volume and price movements.

The share price may move up or down from this point. But the “+ve” (suggesting a rising price trend on volume) and “-ve” (suggesting a falling price trend on volume) indicators should give readers a better idea of what the market is buying and when to sell.

KUALA LUMPUR: Evergreen Fibreboard Bhd is well-positioned to weather near-term headwinds, driven mainly by adverse weather and global macro events, Hong Leong Investment Bank Bhd (HLIB) said.

The bank-backed research firm said this was due to the wood-based manufacturer's well-integrated operations and its diversified production bases.

While the company has noted some tightness in log supply in Malaysia due to the longer than usual wet season since the end of 2021, which caused two major floods, it has diversified into using mixed tropical wood and wood chips instead of solely using rubberwood to help alleviate the shortage in rubberwood log supply.

HLIB Research said this had helped Evergreen to maintain near-full utilisation of its particleboard (PB) and ready-to-assemble (RTA) plants except for the medium density fibreboard (MDF) plant due to log supply shortage.

"We are not overly concerned about this as these challenges are not structural or permanent in nature.

"Overall, the company is still riding on a positive momentum driven by recovering demand in the panel board and furniture market," it said in a note.

Meanwhile, HLIB Research said Evergreen was also in the midst of installing solar panels across three of its major Malaysian plants.

"The structure for installing these solar panels is 'zero capex' whereby Evergreen does not incur any cash outflows.

"The solar panel operators entirely bear the installation and maintenance costs.

"Evergreen only pays a fixed tariff for the next 25 years at a substantially lower rate than Tenaga Nasional Bhd's standard tariff, thus resulting in cost savings for the company," it added.

HLIB Research has maintained its 'Buy' call on Evergreen with an unchanged target price of 94 sen.

KUALA LUMPUR (March 24): The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer who recorded the final statement of the late Ewein Bhd founder Datuk Ewe Swee Kheng agreed with Lim Guan Eng's defence in court that there are contradictions in the statement he recorded by hand with the businessman compared with Ewe's prior statements.

There are a total of six statements recorded from Ewe before he plunged to his death in the early hours of the morning from his condominium in Penang last Oct 5.

Four of them were recorded by Superintendent Muhammad Nazree Mansor, one of which is the final controversial one that Nazree took down by hand. The remaining two were recorded by another MACC officer.

Nazree, the 15th prosecution witness in Lim's undersea tunnel graft trial, initially disagreed with Lim's lead counsel Gobind Singh Deo that there were contradictions in the statements when he was quizzed on the matter and shown Ewe's previous statements.

However, as the senior lawyer highlighted the contradictions one by one, Nazree eventually agreed there were differences. At times, he said he had no knowledge of it when a perceived contradiction was pointed out to him.

Officer agrees Ewe's claim that Lim 'no longer untouchable' is illogical
One of the points raised by the defence to which Nazree agreed did not make sense was how Ewe had, according to Nazree's hand-written statement, described Lim as “no longer untouchable” because of the collapse of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government, which the late businessman had cited as one of the reasons he was allegedly willing to give the additional statement.

Nazree agreed with Gobind that this was 'tak masuk akal' (illogical) because Ewe's final statement had been recorded on Aug 14, 2021, while the PH government had already fallen much earlier — in February 2020. Ewe's first statement to the MACC, given on July 3, 2021, was also after the PH government collapsed.

Below is part of their exchange:

Gobind: In the five statements recorded before Aug 14, [do you agree that] the witness had given evidence which is in contradiction with the one that you recorded on Aug 14?

Nazree: I disagree.

Gobind: Can you see that in Ewe's previous statements, he had mentioned that he got to know about the purported land that he wanted [to develop] from one Datuk Lee Chee Hoe, while in your handwritten statement he said he saw the said property from his house?

Nazree: I disagree.

Gobind: In Ewe's statement recorded in July 2021, he denied dealing with Lee or Consortium Zenith BUCG Sdn Bhd (CZBUCG) director Datuk Zarul Ahmad Mohd Zulkifli for the land?

Nazree: I agree.

Gobind: In that statement, Ewe agreed that [neither] Lim nor his wife had bought any house or property in the City of Dream project?

Nazree: Agree.

In the handwritten statement, Ewe said he wanted to offer units from the condominium he planned to build on the said land to Lim or his wife, if he obtained the plot.

The defence was questioning why Ewe did not relate in the handwritten statement that he had met several deputy public prosecutors earlier, to which Nazree said he could not comment as he had earlier been recording the statement of another witness.

Ewe's final statement was taken when MACC officers from the headquarters in Putrajaya went to Penang last August to meet him and several other witnesses. Ewe reportedly went to meet the MACC officers at 10am on Aug 14, but his statement was only recorded at 3pm.

Nazree also said he had taken down Ewe's final statement by hand as he had left his laptop at the hotel.

“However, procedurally I do not see any problems with recording the statement by hand,” Nazree further said during his cross-examination by Gobind.

It should be noted that Nazree had, in his court testimony just a day before, said he travelled from Putrajaya to Penang with several other MACC officers to meet Ewe in the state MACC office, and that they had not brought a laptop.

He also said he could not access any computer or laptop in the Penang MACC office as it was not a working day in the state when he met with Ewe on Aug 14, 2021, which was a Saturday.

Meanwhile, Nazree, in his Thursday testimony, further said he did not use the video recording room to record Ewe's final statement as he had to ask permission from the MACC security to do that.

“As Ewe is a witness, I decided to use one of the interrogation rooms,” he replied when Gobind asked him why the video recording room was not used.

Before the day's hearing ended with Nazree, Gobind told Sessions judge Azura Alwi that the defence was considering filing an application to call Nazree back due to his inconsistent testimony.

Lim's graft trial will continue before Sessions Court judge Azura Alwi on April 1.

Eco World International Bhd president & CEO Datuk Teow Leong Seng

KUALA LUMPUR: Eco World International Bhd (EcoWorld International) achieved sales of RM685mil in the first quarter ended Jan 31, 2022, 68% higher than the sales recorded in the same period a year ago.

The developer also has a strong reservation pipeline of RM393mil - total sales including reserves as at Feb 28 adds up to a total of RM1.077bil.

It said Embassy Gardens and London City Island were the biggest contributors to sales, generating

RM240mil and RM229mil sales respectively based on contracts exchanged.

“EcoWorld International had a good start to FY22 as the attractive incentive packages being offered to customers led to a resurgence in buying interest, particularly for our London City Island and Embassy Gardens projects.

“Local demand in Australia has also been recovering steadily which contributed to the RM685mil sales secured in the first four months of this financial year,” president and CEO Datuk Teow Leong Seng said in the statement.

In the first quarter to Jan 31, 2022, EcoWorld International posted a net loss of RM14.66mil on revenue of RM49.24mil.

The gross and net gearing levels of the group remain low at 0.29 times and 0.21 times respectively as borrowings have been significantly pared down following the completion of major projects in London, Sydney and Melbourne, it said.

Teow said its projects in Australia are fully completed and its major projects in London under the EcoWorld-Ballymore joint venture are very close to achieving full completion.

“The impact of an inflationary environment could therefore favour us as our selling prices stand to benefit from rising property prices while our costs on the completed and near-completed projects are largely shielded from inflationary pressure,” he said.

“We do however acknowledge the uncertain market environment caused by rising geopolitical tensions – against such a backdrop the strategic decision we made at the end of 2021 to accelerate cash recoupment via the sale of our completed units, remains very sound,” Teow said.

He added that it continued to see good interest from investors, both institutional and retail, for its projects in both the UK and Australia.

“This includes several large offers which we are currently assessing. Should we decide to proceed with these offers, our plans to repatriate the capital which we have invested in our completed projects could be accelerated,” he said.

Teow said that it remained the Board’s intention to sell the remaining units in the EcoWorld-Ballymore and Australian projects in the next two to three years with a key goal of making further distributions to shareholders after setting aside a portion of the capital recouped from these completed projects to be reinvested for future growth.

KUALA LUMPUR (July 16): The Penang state executive council led by former chief minister Lim Guan Eng in 2014 had approved the transfer of ownership of the two lands connected to the Penang undersea tunnel project to two third-party companies, in return for the work that has been done by Consortium Zenith BUCG Sdn Bhd, the Sessions Court heard today.

According to former Penang executive councillor Lim Hock Seng, who testified today as the third prosecution witness in the graft trial of Guan Eng, Consortium Zenith BUCG reserved the right under the preliminary agreement with the state government to nominate the two companies, Ewein Zenith Sdn Bhd and Zenith Urban Development Sdn Bhd, as owners of the land.

"The state council agreed to the verification and approved the application for ownership of the lands," Hock Seng told the court today.

On Oct 6, 2013, a preliminary agreement was signed between the state government and Consortium Zenith BUCG for the construction of an undersea tunnel and three road expansion packages, known as the Penang Major Roads & Third Link Project.

Hock Seng said after the feasibility study and preliminary detail design work for the three main roads was done by the consortium, they claimed payment from the state government.

The cost for the feasibility study and preliminary detail design work was quoted at RM305.00 million. According to Hock Seng, the price was determined by Consortium Zenith BUCG through a request for proposal (RFP) process, and is part of the total cost of the project, amounting to RM6.34 billion.

The first parcel is a 2.3855-acre piece of land in Bandar Tanjung Pinang worth RM135.09 million, while the second one is another two-acre parcel in the same area worth RM73.67 million.

The transfer of these two plots of lands form the basis of the third and fourth charges against Guan Eng, who is accused of misappropriating the lands belonging to the Penang government and giving them to the developers.

Besides that, in this trial, Guan Eng also faces another two charges under the MACC Act 2009, the first of which is the offence of using his position as then chief minister to solicit gratification to help Consortium Zenith Construction secure the tunnel project. He is alleged to have sought 10% of the profit to be made by the company's senior executive director Datuk Zarul Ahmad Mohd Zulkifli.

Under the second charge read to him in the Butterworth Sessions Court, Guan Eng is accused of using his position as then chief minister to receive RM3.3 million in gratification for himself, as an inducement for helping the company secure the project valued at RM6.3 billion.

Guan Eng has pleaded not guilty to all four charges. The trial before Sessions Court judge Azura Alwi continues on Aug 16.
