KUALA LUMPUR (May 23): theedgemarkets.com highlighted nine stocks with momentum at Bursa Malaysia’s afternoon close on Monday (May 23). One stock displayed positive momentum, while eight showed negative momentum.

The stock with positive momentum was:

Sapura Energy Bhd— up two sen at nine sen

The stocks with negative momentum were:

Ajiya Bhd — up three sen at RM1.19

CAB Cakaran Corporation Bhd — up two sen at 55 sen

Gas Malaysia Bhd — down nine sen at RM3.01

Global Oriental Bhd — up 4.5 sen at 28 sen

KNM Group Bhd — down 0.5 sen at 19.5 sen

Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings Bhd — up 1.5 sen at 43 sen

MPHB Capital Bhd — down 8 sen at RM1.49

Padini Holdings Bhd — up 0.4 sen at RM3.49

The list of stocks with momentum is generated using a proprietary mathematical algorithm highlighting stocks with a build-up in trading volume and price. The algorithm differentiates between stocks that exhibit positive (+ve) momentum and negative (-ve) momentum.

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. Note also that momentum generally only persists for a short period of time.

However, each stock has an accompanying fundamental score and valuation score to help readers evaluate the attractiveness of the stocks if they want to ride the momentum.

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.

(吉隆坡14日讯)冠病爆发至今,海运业和物流业变得炙手可热,抵销了航空业受到严重打击的影响,大马投行看好海运和物流需求将保持强稳,因而继续乐观看待运输物流业整体展望,决定保持“加码”评级。

不过,该行提醒说,如果港口货柜处理数量和包裹运送数量增长慢于预期,航空旅游复苏步伐也迟缓,该行不排除将运输物流业的评级调低到“中和”、甚至“减码”的可能。

大马投行表示,海运公司将继续从全球货柜货运需求增长趋势中受益,物流公司也能够自冠病刺激的网购交易中获利。

至于目前表现疲弱的航空公司,随著疫苗接种加快,该行看好各国将逐步解除封锁,进而提振航空公司业务表现。

整体而言,该行保持运输物流业的“加码”评级。

大马投行引述上海出口货柜运价指数(SCFI)说,这项全球货柜贸易指标创下新高,显示海运市场需求自2020年中以来一直保持强劲。

该行说,欧美对服装、配饰、机械零件、汽车零件等消费品和工业品需求的复苏;亚马逊、沃尔玛的大型零售商的补货活动;汽车业等全球严重的晶片供不应求。

海运公司面对货柜囤积影响

不过,大马投行指出,海运公司面对港口货柜囤积影响,主要是更容易获得疫苗的欧美经济开放快于亚太,导致市场出现欧美货柜过剩、亚太货柜却不足的不平衡现象。

“同时,由于亚太冠病疫情仍严重,受各项封锁限制影响,港口周转时间更长。”

该行说,随著船运公司陆续接收到新货柜、亚太经济复苏加快、空运服务在各国解除封锁后恢复、欧美消费需求转向服务业、封锁放宽等,相信港口货柜囤积效应将消退。

大马投行指出,目前国内港口营运公司正通过将货物从拥挤的港口分流,而提高了市场份额。

西港(WPRTS,5246,主板交通物流组)是区域主要转运港口之一,由于货柜囤积,影响了效率,造成船运公司错过了港口停靠时间,并影响到其他港口往返时间。

该行假设情况在短期内恢复正常,西港应该会回到更强劲的增长道路,因此该行预期该公司的货柜处理数量将在2022财政年增长5%,快于2021财政年的2%。

对于物流业展望,大马投行表示,国内包裹递送市场显著扩大,能够让新的和较小的业者找到生存空间,与更成熟和更大型的对手共存。

包裹运送业炙手可热

该行认为,冠病促使网购风行,包裹运送行业更是炙手可热,而消费者尝过网购的便利、低价等甜头后,普遍会保持这类采购习惯。

此外,政府暂停发放新物流执照,也让早已拥挤的市场变得缓和,物流业者也能把握良机拓展业务。

该行预期物流业者会采取更多效率提升措施,包括外包最后一里服务、透过加速快递服务计划(PAKEJ)共享资产等。

选股方面,大马投行说,大马邮政(POS,4634,主板交通物流组)的效率和服务有待改善,近期展望依然不太乐观。

该行补充,在PAKEJ措施启动后,该公司的服务若不改善,恐怕会面对罚款。此外,在PAKEJ之下,该公司的网络覆盖率优势恐怕会渐渐消退,连带市占率也可能会遭到侵蚀。

航空客运量恐降29%

大马投行指出,困难重重的航空业2021年展望仍不乐观,大马航空委员会(Mavcom)预计客运量可能按年减少22.9至29.1%,跌幅大于该行估计的20%。

不过,随著全球逐步解锁,相信航空业展望也会跟著改善。

该行选择的复苏空运代表股项是大马机场(AIRPORT,5014,主板交通物流组),并认为这是相对安全的选项,因为机场属于国家策略利益,该公司也拥有政府作为后盾,股东支持无虞。

相对之下,该行对亚航集团(AIRASIA,5099,主板贸服组)保持谨慎看法,尽管该公司已提出高度稀释股权的现金集资活动,但能否走出泥沼仍属未知数,因为该公司的财务已受到冠病严重打击。

无论如何,大马投行认为,航空公司和机场公司仍有著货运服务需求增加以推动业务改善的机会。此外,为求生存,他们也会加快创新和开发新收入来源,并将成本控制在最低,这些都是有利因素。

In a statement, Ni Hsin said the partnership will see BlackBixon retailing its drinks at various onshore and offshore oil and gas (O&G) locations owned by members of KTP.

KUALA LUMPUR: Ni Hsin Resources Bhd’s food and beverage arm, Blackbixon Sdn Bhd, has signed a brand partnership agreement with Koperasi Tenaga dan Petroliam Bhd (KTP) to grow the market for the BlackBixon energy coffee drink.

In a statement, Ni Hsin said the partnership will see BlackBixon retailing its drinks at various onshore and offshore oil and gas (O&G) locations owned by members of KTP.

KTP is a cooperative for entrepreneurs in the O&G industry.

“This agreement will not only benefit BlackBixon through having more locations to distribute the energy coffee drink but also benefits members of the cooperative, who will have another source of income through their participation in the BlackBixon business, ” Ni Hsin said.

BlackBixon represents the first venture by Ni Hsin into the F&B industry, with other plans in the pipeline to grow the business regionally, given the heightened interest in energy drinks combined with the coffee-drinking culture of today.

BlackBixon recently appointed Red One Network Sdn Bhd, a mobile virtual network operator, to market and retail BlackBixon coffee to its 1.2 million subscribers.

In its latest annual report, the group said it will invest in new equipment to enhance efficiency and competitiveness. “Farm improvement and expansion are always the most important agenda as they represent the core business of the group."

PETALING JAYA: Poultry company Teo Seng Capital Bhd expects to stage an improved performance in 2021, supported by its efforts to enhance efficiency across its businesses.

In its latest annual report, the group said it will invest in new equipment to enhance efficiency and competitiveness.

“Farm improvement and expansion are always the most important agenda as they represent the core business of the group.

“Our farms are all (equipped with) closed-house systems and the All-In-All-Out (AIAO) layer farming management system.

“Both systems have better hygienic and safety standards to contribute higher production efficiency, ” it said.

In addition, Teo Seng said it will continue to invest in waste management facilities along with the expansion of its production capacity.

The investment into waste management facilities would allow the group to mitigate any negative risks from its operations on the environment, human resource, workplace, social and community.

“We continue to pursue opportunities to increase our presence overseas and sourcing right partners to enter into new markets and capturing more market share in existing domestic and overseas markets by promoting our brand.

“Last but not least, the management embarks on investment into downstream business as part of our business pillars.

“The board of directors is confident to face the challenges by taking proactive actions to widen its customer base through e-commerce, retune its business direction and mitigate the possible risk impact on Covid-19 pandemic.” stated the group.

Moving forward, Teo Seng pointed out that the poultry farming industry may face consolidation, given the uncertain operating conditions and market challenges arising from the Covid-19

pandemic.

Many players in the supply chain have been suspending their expansion plans in the aftermath of the pandemic, according to the group.

“Those local farmers who lack competitive advantages may opt to phase out from the market, defer or cancel their expansion plans.

“Thus, we will be prudent to manage our financial resources, operational costs and capital expenditure requirements for the purpose of improving efficiency across the whole organisation, eventually to gain competitive advantages and continue to be integrated and sustainable in this industry, ” it said.

FURNITURE manufacturer Jaycorp Bhd is one of the companies that are thriving in the Covid-19 economy. Tightening international border controls and a ban on interstate travel in response to the pandemic have led to a reversal in the company’s fortunes as people spend more time in their homes and money on home furniture products.

Backed by strong orders, the company is confident of beating its previous earnings record of RM24.69 million achieved in its financial year ended July 31, 2017 (FY2017). In fact, Jaycorp’s net profit of RM22.45 million for 1HFY2021 has exceeded that for the past three financial years (FY2020-FY2018) of RM17.4 million, RM19.82 million and RM10.29 million respectively.

Its executive director Muaz Jema Anton Khan expects the company to report its “best-ever year” as earnings have improved substantially amid the Covid-19 stay-at-home orders.

“The local market has been good because of the pandemic. [That’s because] a large chunk of disposable income now goes to home furnishings instead of being used for travelling, as people are stuck at home. This is very different from pre-pandemic,” Muaz tells The Edge.

Still, the Covid-19 outbreak had initially impacted Jaycorp’s earnings when the first Movement Control Order (MCO) was imposed in March last year, forcing the company to temporarily shut down operations. As a result, Jaycorp saw its net profit fall 12.2% to RM17.4 million in FY2020 from RM19.82 million in FY2019, while revenue was down 3.9% to RM309.35 million from RM321.95 million in the same period.


The weaker performance in FY2020 was also because of its kiln-drying segment posting a pre-tax loss of RM3.39 million versus the pre-tax profit of RM339,000 in FY2019 as a result of a write-down of inventories in the Malaysian subsidiary and a provision for employee benefits and tax penalty expenses in the Indonesian subsidiary.

Muaz explains that it was quite difficult for Jaycorp’s customers to physically look at its products or new models given the lockdown, adding that its major markets are Japan and South Korea.

“Customers generally want to come to the factory and see our products, particularly the new models. But we’ve adapted by having a digital showroom now. The pandemic has actually shown us that we need to modernise our operations.

“As such, we’ve become much more proficient in delivering our value proposition online even though some of our factories are quite remote,” he says.

The company also works closely with its customers in terms of product development. “We’re always trying to go up the value chain … trying to do higher-margin products and also looking at what is selling, as well as the market trends. At the same time, we will also try new designs and see how that works,” he adds.

Last month, Jaycorp had to halt operations at two of its factories in Johor for 10 days for sanitisation purposes as some of its employees tested positive for Covid-19. Muaz, however, says the temporary shutdown will not have any material impact on the company’s financial performance. “There will only be a delay (in orders), but I think we will be able to catch up quite quickly.”

While orders and queries from customers are robust, Muaz says it is difficult to gauge whether the trend will last until after the pandemic. “For instance, my consumption of delivery food has increased a lot, but once we come out of the pandemic, am I going to stop ordering food? No, I actually think I would probably order slightly more than I did before the lockdown because we already have that sort of behaviour ingrained in us.

“So, I don’t think there will be a massive drop (in sales), but it is hard to say.”

Expanding manufacturing capacity on the cards
While Muaz notes that Jaycorp is open to taking new orders, the manufacturing capacity of its furniture division is already running at over 90%. Thus, it is “quite difficult” now to take on new customers that have substantial volume orders, he says.

“We are always looking at expanding our capacity, but I think, given the current situation, the priority is shifting towards automation.

“Traditionally, the manufacturing business has been quite labour-intensive, so we are looking at new technologies that could essentially reduce the manpower,” says Muaz.


Jaycorp has set aside RM5 million to RM6 million in capital expenditure (capex) mainly for the purchase of new machines, which will be funded via 70% internal funds and 30% borrowings.

As at Jan 31, 2021, Jaycorp had a cash balance of RM52.57 million and borrowings of RM27.42 million, leading to a net cash position of RM25.15 million.

Muaz says the company will be cautious about spending as the uncertainty will linger for some time. “We are open to any merger and acquisition for our furniture division, but it will depend on the valuation and what capability the (acquisition target) can bring to the group.”

马星集团的首家手套厂位于巴生加埔(Kapar),建筑面积约达22万8800平方尺,处于一座手套工业中心的策略性地点,当地不仅配备了适合制造手套的生态系统,还坐拥成熟的基础建设与公用事业,更重要的是拥有大量的手套专业人才。


马星手套厂房已完成了2条生产线的测试与调试。

一座面向未来的高效率厂房

马星集团备受期待的首家手套厂房已完成了2条生产线的测试与调试,预计从下个月开始投产,将在5月和6月份交付第一批手套,另4条将如期在2021年次季投入运作。之后,还有6条生产线会在2021年第三季开跑。

在马星集团第一阶段的手套制造业务中,采用了12架全新且高速的手套浸胶机器,每条生产线在每小时可高速生产3万8000只手套,最大产量可达每年36.8亿只手套。

最佳规格规划

这座厂房从零开始建设,让马星集团能够从一开始就以最佳规格来规划。所设计的生产线采取全自动化以加强效率,并配有企业资源规划(ERP)系统,以及高级监控与数据采集(SCADA)支撑营运工作,让这家手套厂更具优势。同时,本集团在构建初期,即确保环境、社会和治理(ESG)条件皆完善到位。

经验团队标准严格

人力方面,马星集团招聘了在手套领域经验老道的专才加入团队,并针对代理机构提供的工人住宿环境,设下严格的合规标准,确保符合1990年工人住宿及设施最低标准法令(446法令)。

超越国界 买家热烈的回响

目前,马星集团已经取得美国食品和药物管理局(FDA)等有关当局的认证,其他的认证申请进度亦良好,如申请欧洲合格认证(CE)以将产品出口至欧盟地区。这彰显出本集团在获取最高安全标准的坚持,以及将产品深耕国际市场的承诺。

原料充足满足市场

此外,马星集团已经获得充足的原料,以满足手套买家和分销商们热切的订单和购买意向,他们计划将马星制造的手套出口至美国、加拿大、中东、欧洲、日本、中国、新加坡、俄罗斯和南美地区。买家们的支持和信任让本集团备受鼓舞,而且当中很多是医疗保健行业的知名品牌。

倘若需求持续超出供应,马星集团将在第二阶段的扩张计划中,再增加12条生产链,将年产能提高多36.8亿只手套,相等于初期产能的一倍。如果市场的回响是令人鼓舞的,马星的最终目标是成为马来西亚排名前5位大的手套制造商。


科技在提高手套生产效率扮演重要角色。

振翅翱翔 手套需求持续稳健

马星集团创办人兼集团董事经理丹斯里拿督斯里梁海金说:“我们有信心,除了具有速度上的优势,马星的手套业务在成本效率、生产力和产品品质方面,在后疫情时代依然具备竞争力。在我们目前专注于丁腈手套和乳胶医用手套之际,还会探索生产非医用、工业专用和其他手套的商机。”

即便在后疫情时代,更严谨的条规,加上人们意识到卫生习惯的重要性,预计手套需求依然稳健。这有助激励马星集团的经常性和稳定收入,辅助原本的房地产和塑料业务,在接下来为集团财务做出更大的贡献。

投资研发工作

同时,马星集团也不懈投资于研发工作,以期带来创新的产品,因为研发可说是维持业务增长的命脉。本集团会继续致力于研发工作,以强化产品和原料发展、可持续技术、工程和自动化方面的竞争力。

KUALA LUMPUR (March 25): Eco World International Bhd’s (EWI) net profit jumped by more than 10-fold to RM56.03 million for the first quarter ended Jan 31, 2021, from RM5.19 million a year ago, thanks mainly to profit recognition of the group’s Melbourne project.

Quarterly revenue swelled to RM303.28 million from RM51,000, EWI’s filing to Bursa Malaysia showed.

The group declared an interim dividend of one sen, to be paid on April 28. This is EWI's maiden dividend since its listing in 2017.

EWI said the higher profit was mainly due to the commencement of revenue and profit recognition of Yarra One, following progressive handover of units sold to customers and higher share of results in joint ventures.

The increase in profit was partly offset by the impairment of goodwill in relation to EWI’s investment in a United Kingdom joint venture and West Village project totalling RM9.31 million in the first quarter, it said.

EWI said it delivered RM408 million sales in the first four months of the current financial year.

Sales in the first quarter totalled RM312 million, slightly in excess of RM100 million a month, which is similar to the rate recorded in the previous first quarter.

“The consistency of sales, notwithstanding a third national lockdown imposed in the UK since December 2020, is very encouraging. It clearly demonstrates London’s status as a global city with continued strong overseas demand experienced by our London projects,” said EWI.

“Recovering local demand in Australia also contributed to the positive sales results achieved by the group,” it added.

Going forward, EWI is hopeful that property market conditions in the UK and Australia will improve in the coming quarters following the mass rollout of vaccination programmes against Covid-19.

With regard to construction, EWI said the first build-to-rent residential block of Barking Wharf was completed in November 2020 and handed over.

As work on sites was permitted throughout the recent UK lockdown period, the group is also on track to hand over the three remaining blocks in stages within the current financial year.

Based on current construction programmes, the group also expects the handover of apartment units in Millbrook Park Phase 2 and Embassy Gardens Block A03 to commence in the second half of the year.

“These completions will not only allow revenue recognition but also generate significant cash flows for the group,” it said.

EWI’s share price closed unchanged at 55 sen, valuing the group at RM1.32 billion.

KUALA LUMPUR: Drilling company Velesto Energy Bhd booked in nearly half a billion ringgit in losses after it made RM460mil impairment for its rig assets in the last quarter.

The company blamed volatile oil prices and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic for its losses.


"Due to the slow pace of recovery in global economy and the oil and gas industry, the Board is of the opinion that the financial performance for 2021 will continue to be challenging," Velesto said in a filing with Bursa Malaysia today.

For the three-month ended Dec 31, the company registered a loss of RM493mil on revenue of RM99mil.

"There is an increase in the global oil and gas activities including in the drilling sector where a number of contracts have been awarded in the last three months," Velesto said today.

In Malaysia, a number of new drilling contracts have been awarded and more tenders are currently under evaluation. "The Group is participating in most of these tenders, in addition to a number of tenders in Asean countries," it said.

Currently, two of the Group’s seven jack-up drilling rigs are working, while another rig is scheduled to commence a three-year contract in Malaysia-Thai Joint Development Area by early April 2021.

Two more rigs are being mobilised to start contracts in offshore Malaysia in April and May respectively.

"At present, the Group is continuing to tender and negotiate for new contracts for 2021 and beyond," it said.
