My friend with all your point, try to check first KUB latest income statement, balance sheet and cash flow. In any industry it is not necessary to be in No.1 and champion to make profit or to grow. As long the company continuously making profit, steadily growth, capture the right amount of market share then it is alright.
KUB also is working out for the future into services end-to-end private 5G networks which specializing in 5G digital transformation platforms such as private packet core, business platform, services platform, mobile edge computing, 5G radio access networks, industry 4.0 under their KUB Telekomunikasi Sdn Bhd & Connecta Sdn Bhd. With the help of second largest shareholder of Media Prima Bhd surely these exercise can be done.
Plus their dispose & divestment are still ongoing.. light up your cigar and stock up your beer.. this is long journey for KUB transformation under turnaround specialist Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani..
Let Anchorscape dispose. Under the leadership of Anchorscape from 2011 to 2018. The KUB shares down from RM0.81 to RM0.22 (negative -73%) for 7 consecutive years. It was a result of weak management, not focusing on right business model, not making any growth and fully utilize the assets.
But after the new shareholder bought and take over the company since 2019 till as of today April 2022. The price rose for 150% and stable to stay above RM0.60. He with the proven turnaround specialist track record has manage to improve the company margin and reduced the gearing ration from 31% to 8%.
With now cash position of RM500 million, company is making way to any potential M&A or growing their LPG to targeted a right amount of market share. KUB's progression also is looking to bid for further sizable information ICT contracts to enhance its orderbook.
Last year 2021, with the the series of MCO restrictions which made a lower average monthly sales volume in KUB's LPG in both domestic and industrial segments but still KUB managed to record its LPG revenue of RM451 million. Now the restaurants and factories are operating at a full capacity, thereby it is a positive for overall LPG demand.
Under the new major shareholder also has made KUB Telekomunikasi entered into a joint venture agreement with South Korean digital technology giant HFR, Inc. (‘HFR’) to provide engineering and infrastructural services. With this JV of KUB, it has opened the door to projects involving the installation of cutting-edge communications technology such as 5G, making KUB Telekomunikasi a network solutions provider with expertise in broadband, mobile and private radio access in future.
So from what i see, KUB now is proactively reassess its capex plans, tighten up operating expenditure, review back the investment decisions and re-optimise capital structure. Moreover KUB also was ranked first in the Corporate Governance Disclosure awarded by Minority Shareholder Watchdog Group (MSWG) under the MSWG-Asean Corporate Governance Awards. This good progression is not happen under Anchorscape time. So even with the dispose of Achorscape, i believe company shares maintain intact.
