Parkson Holdings Bhd said its external auditor has reported a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt on the group's ability to continue as a going concern. This is in respect of the retailer's audited financial statements for the 18-month period ended Dec 31, 2021 (FY21). Separately, Parkson said it has reassessed its condition and concluded that it does not trigger any Practice Note 17 prescribed criteria based on the FY21 results.
"The Board of Directors of PHB wishes to announce that the Company has re-assessed its condition and concluded that it does not trigger any of the prescribed criteria pursuant to PN17 of the Main LR based on the Company's Audited Financial Statements for the 18-month financial period ended 31 December 2021. Hence, the Company is not an affected listed issuer pursuant to PN17 of the Main LR.". Good news, why dropping?
comment from Ex Auditor. Why everyone was so panic about their qualified report? Before you buy this stock, its financial report already show their CL more than CA. Normally auditor will ask them to provide projection cash flow to prove they are going concern. Don't quote SERBADK issue here because 1 is falsifying revenue, this 1 is with solid asset but with no earning and cause the going concern issue(ability to survive in short term) Worse come to worse they will just do another PP to survive.
For Parkson followers, you should not worry. The life blood of any company is generating positive cash. Parkson is not short of it. Parkson has almost 10 fully owned Malls not yet revalued and reflected in their books. If need money, just sell one loh. In fact, their North Building Parkson Mall in Beijing has been renovated for office rental. The office building will be rented out for 12 years with rental income of RM164 mil per year. That is very good income, cheers.
