Gas Malaysia is a poor cash flow company with huge debt (high gearing ratio of 2.5!), profits depending on government mercy to increase selling gas price, otherwise, gas Malaysia has to swallow the pain of high raw material (gas price)! Short9e!
Gas Malaysia, is a small + debt laden gas player in the market, whereby the market shares can easily be monopolized by Petronas Gas! Buying gas Malaysia is no different from fighting against the Gas Titan of the market, Petronas Gas! Do the maths, you know, better option to invest is Petronas Gas, not Gas Malaysia!
Petronas Gas business more toward export market, Petrochemical Plant, Large Industries, TNB, SESB , Domestic IPP, Export to Senoko/Keppel & supply to Gas Malaysia ( for domestic distribution).
Gas Malaysia are owned by PetGas about 14.8%. Japanese Tokyo Gas owned 18.5% The largest single owner of Gas Malaysia is Anglo Oriental - annuities Sdn Bhd ( should be TS Syed Mokthar vehicles)
PetGas & GasM business segment is totally different & they didn't compete between themselves. It is a fallacy statement to state PetGas is fighting with GasM.
Also, the domestic gas distribution is only 0.003% of the GMas revenue. If if government regulated the domestic gas price, it will not impact GMas revenue. GMas real customer base are actually the local industries which accounted for 99.67% of their revenue ( almost monopoly ).
Read both Petronas Gas & GasM AR to get the facts correct.
D/E ratio varies from industry to industry. It is very norm for the utilities counter have high Debt to Equity ratio because utilities company need high capital intensive investment, a lot of their debts are actually in the long term secured bonds.
Please get the fact on D/E ratio understanding correct also. Talk everyone can simply hantam.
Short gas Malaysia and ringgit! Short9e! You all, Malaysian, are the big losers in the post Covid economic crisis! Your government making you all poorer by allowing ringgit to be shorted! Tun M is smart, peg ringgit, unfortunately, he is not the PM. Serve you all right! Poorer rakyat Malaysia!
