With a production capacity of 1,350 units per hour, Enovix's Gen2 autoline will be able to produce up to 10 million units of batteries a year, he says.
The plan is for the line to start high-vol-ume manufacturing in the second half of the year. By 2026, Enovix intends to have multiple lines that will generate multi-hundred million dollars in revenue for the group. Already, Enovix has committed to invest US$1.5 billion in Malaysia over the next 15 years.
"After this, with a successful run, we will be another Inari or ViTrox," says Yong, referring to Malaysia's home-grown Osat companies Inari Amertron Bhd, which has a market capitalisation of RM12 billion, and ViTrox Corp Bhd, which is valued at around RM6.8 billion.
However, this target is very much dependent on Enovix's performance.
YBS gains traction
YBS' share price has increased by 28.7% over the last one year. It traded at 70 sen apiece on Jan 24, valuing the group at RM178.38 mil-lion. The counter is not being covered by any research houses yet, indicating the market's scepticism of its venture with Enovix.

As Enovix is a start-up, it is standard for the market to be sceptical about its poten-tial, especially in the technology space where many so-called breakthroughs have not been realised, failing in mass adoption.
In YBs taking up too much risk, being so closely linked to Enovix?
This seems so,as in order to prepare for the said contract, YBS had to raise debt to fund the facility.The loans were guaranteed by Enovix, but YBS will still have to service them, which will eat into its profits.
In the six-month period ended Sept 30, 2023, YBS' finance costs jumped 77% from the previous corresponding period to RMIA million. Coupled with a higher cost of sales and administrative expenses, the company recorded a net loss of RM647,000, compared with a net profit of RM3,13 million in the previous corresponding period.
In Yong's opinion, YBS' financial health is still quite good. As at Sept 30,2023, its gearing ratio was 0.76 times, only slightly higher than the 0.73 times as at Sept 30,2022, which was a considerable jump from the 0.44 times as at Sept 30,2021.

"Based on customer feedback, the ecosystem is looking for a silicon replacement of graphite as the lever to unleash increased battery performance and we believe our progress this year has positioned Enovix as the leading contender in silicon batteries," he said when announcing the company's results for the third quarter ended Sept 30,2023.
As the saying goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. While the market for lithium-ion batteries is expected to grow by over 30% annually to US$400 billion by 2030, according to McKinsey, the question is whether Enovix will secure β€” in the form of orders

Betul Rio..... according to YBS Yong, if production is successful, YBS is like Inari or Vitrox..... Inari is 12B market cap and Vitrox is 7B..... YBS have 259million shares..... If take 7B, YBS should be rm27 and if take Inari YBS should be rm46 per share...... Its definitely another Genetec......

The risk and reward ratio is definitely worth to take......

Enovix/YBS spent approximately US70 million on Gen2 Line1 and these machines are made in Korea.... Machines are already delivered to Penang..... As a Malaysian, we all know that machines from Korea are top class and reliable.... Its different scenario if they said that machines are from Bangladesh..... Furthermore, Blackrock is 1 of the largest shareholder in Enovix.... 5.9%...... Chances of YBS shares soaring is pretty high.....

YBS International launches small-scale battery production

YBS International (YBS, 0025, GEM) is in discussions with the US company Enovix to produce silicon-based batteries at the former's Penang factory, and is expected to start small-scale production in the second quarter of this year.

β€œYBS International has previously been involved in the assembly business of batteries and chargers for Motorola mobile devices, and this experience can be put to good use now.”

Analysts added that the above-mentioned batteries are probably only for consumer use at present, but in the long term, they may be used in electric vehicles.

The related investment requires US$100 million (approximately RM470 million) in capital expenditure, plus US$150 million (approximately RM710 million) in working capital, and the company said it has now secured funding sources.

"The above-mentioned battery business can bring a pre-tax profit margin of 4% to 6%. With the tax incentives provided by the government, a net profit margin of 4% to 6% is not impossible."

Today's news.
YBS International (YBS, 0025, GEM) signed a letter of intent with the American company Enovix to jointly develop a lithium-ion silicon battery factory.

The two parties are exploring the possibility of cooperation. By developing YBS International's existing facilities in Penang Technology Park, Enovix will build a new 3D lithium-ion silicon battery assembly plant in Southeast Asia. Production is expected to start in April this year.

The company said it believes that once production capacity is put into operation, it will help improve revenue performance and profit margins will increase by 4% to 6%.

YBS International pointed out that the relevant business will focus on electronic watches and phones, but it has no intention to enter the electric vehicle battery market at this stage.

YBS will become like Inari, very interesting!!
Inari Market Cap is 11Bil, while YBS Market Cap is only 181mil.
Assume YBS can achieve 10% of Inari size, that would be 1.1bil.
From 181mil to 1.1bil, mean the share price will need to growth 6 times.
From RM0.70 to RM4.20.
This counter really got potential like Genetec.

Update from Enovix today.... Gen 2 in Penang goes as planned.... Yield 90% - 99%..... Products from Gen 2 line 1 will be out by April for customers evaluation.... full production in 2H 2024..... As per YBS MD Yong said, YBS going to be on par wh Inari or Vitrox.....

β€’ Fab 2 facility construction is complete, including 220,000 sq ft of clean room space across 4 zones. Air handling systems are installed and clean room certification is underway.
β€’ Zone 1 laser patterning and dicing equipment installation is nearly done, with 4 of 5 tools installed. Factory acceptance testing is complete and site acceptance testing is underway, expected to finish in the next 4 weeks.
β€’ Zone 2 stacking equipment for both HVM and agility lines is finishing factory acceptance testing this month. Agility line will ship to Fab 2 by mid-March to prepare customer samples.
β€’ Zone 3A finishing equipment factory acceptance testing will complete end of Q1.
Zone 3B degassing line equipment is already shipped to Fab 2.
β€’ Zone 4 equipment installation and site acceptance testing is ahead of schedule.
β€’ First battery samples from the agility line are still on track for April. This will be a key milestone.
β€’ Enovix is seeing much higher yields in factory acceptance testing than Gen 1 line, indicating learnings from Gen 1 are paying off. This provides confidence in hitting yield targets.
β€’ Significant progress overall, with most major equipment either going through factory or site acceptance testing. Timelines appear on track for April battery samples. Continued execution is critical, but the update provides increased confidence in Enovix's scaling plans.

Sounds like Genetec 2.0? Missed out Genetec the last time? YBS looks a bigger bagger ..... with Apple, Xiomi, Huawei, Lenovo, Samsung, etc evaluating Enovix batteries.... Enovix are also currently looking into EV batteries.....
