I believe many people doesn't subscribe to The Edge, so I have typed its original article down here regarding possible cooperation between SMTrack and Sersol. The article is as below:
"There have been interesting developments at SMTrack Bhd, whose shares were trading just below 10 sen a month ago before rising to a two-year high of 30 sen last Friday.
First, the radio-frequency identification solutions company completed a private placement exercise on Dec 24, raising RM6.84 million, based on a placement price of 7.47 sen per share.
Then on Dec 29, Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew, the founder and executive chairman of Country Heights Holdings Bhd, emerged as a substantial shareholder of SMTrack after the acquisition of 28.5 million shares or a 5.05% stake via an open market transaction.
Last Thursday, SMTrack disclosed that it is in the early stages of negotiations with a government-linked company in relation to the latter's interest in the company.
A day later, Datuk Justin Lim Hwa Tat and Datuk Seri Tan Choon Hwa also surfaced as the company's new substantial shareholders, holding 5.14% and 5.4%, respectively.
It appears that something big could happen as a signing ceremony - between SMTrack, Country Heights, Jiankun International Bhd, Sersol Bhd, AHB Holdings Bhd, Techna-X Bhd, MQ Technology Bhd and 5G Infratech Malaysia Sdn Bhd - is scheduled to be held on Jan 13.
Note that Lee's son in law Jared Lim is executive director of Techna-X, while Hwa Tat is managing director of Sersol. Tan sits on the Jiankun board as executive director.
All these stocks have gained traction in recent days. While investors will be waiting to see what the collaboration is about, they will still need to be mindful as the excitement does not necessarily translate into returns."
Reference is made to an article titled “What’s brewing at SMTrack and a few other companies” which appeared in The Edge on 10 January 2022.
The Board of Directors of the Company (“Board”) wishes to clarify that the Company is in early stage of discussion with the companies concerned mentioned in the article of which no agreement has been reached and the date of the signing of agreement has not been confirmed at this juncture.
In the event any decision or agreement is made in relation thereto, the Board will make the necessary announcement in compliance with the ACE Market Listing Requirements of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad accordingly.

================= Good or bad ?
A reason for operator to fry up Not many things are free in this world Looks more like the making of another low price high NOSH (billion shares) penny stock.
My opinion is that share dilution does makes it more liquid for con players. If company is profitable and has growth, there is not need to print papers. Remember printing papers costs sens but by pumping thereafter with volumne, makes WHO rich ? Can it be YOU ? Answer is obvious....
most are afraid of private placement announcement. but theres a catch. PP announcement most of the time company already found investor already just need paperwork to be done. the catch is. Con man companies, which dont have core business and doing MOU proposal. PP is just Printing Paper money to dump. good value companies that has core business thats another story but its a double edge sword good thing = investor that really want in can get Large volume @cheap price, compare to buying off open market thats slow + expensive. bad thing = company has cashflow problem it may sound similar but its 2 different thing. 1 is like you need their expertise + their commitment the other is you just want their money aka AIRASIA haha PP goreng up still failed in the end
Interesting strategy by the directors. Announce Bonus Issue with free warrants. Lots of small flies jump in to scoop up the shares. Then announce a serial of small additional listings to disguise the PP announced under additional listing also. Without knowing it, those chasing the bonus issues already scoop up all the shares of the PP holders. Good luck.
=============== Multi year loss making company Directors not capable to increase company fund via main business Directors might propose more fund raising via shares issuance to PP, ESOS to increase company fund and resulting in dilution of shareholders equity % and EPS
Just wait to see when will NOSH hit 1 BILLION shares in near future
