The result is: Title: Nanyang - Warrants Column / Wen Shilin Entering the Intelligent Agriculture Industry, ANNUM and Its Warrants Deserve Attention / Wen Shilin
ANNUM-WA, a warrant issued by ANNUM (5082, Main Board Industrial Stock), was listed on Bursa Malaysia last Tuesday. The warrant was part of ANNUM's recently completed additional share issuance plan, and was distributed free of charge to subscribers at a ratio of 3 warrants for every 4 shares subscribed, with a total of 97.5 million units issued.
It is worth noting that the subscription rate for this additional share issuance plan was not high due to the issue price of 30 cents being higher than the market price. However, some investors made up for this by subscribing for additional shares, enabling the company to achieve its target fundraising.
After its listing, ANNUM-WA traded between 6.5 cents and 8 cents, and closed at 8 cents last Friday. ANNUM's mother stock has been on a downward trend for the past year, falling from a high of about 85 cents to 24.5 cents last Friday.
Formerly known as New Hoong Fatt Holdings, ANNUM is engaged in the plywood and construction businesses. However, the group has entered the intelligent agriculture industry through this corporate activity, mainly by cultivating Japanese melons through the additional share issuance plan.
For the first three quarters ending on September 30, 2022, ANNUM's revenue increased significantly by 40% from RM167.16 million in the first three quarters of 2021 to RM234.20 million. The company's net profit, however, decreased by 48% to RM22.68 million.

Bullish on the Future of Fruit and Vegetable Farming
According to the company's financial report, the increase in revenue mainly came from the company's wholesale business. However, due to a one-time negative goodwill gain of MYR 20.69 million in 2021, the profit for 2022 appears to have decreased significantly.
Based on its positive outlook for the future of fruit and vegetable farming in Malaysia, the company has decided to enter this industry and expects the new business to contribute at least 25% of its net profit.
The premium for ANNUM-WA is currently at 55.1%, which is relatively high for a warrant that will expire in two years. The warrant is also considered expensive due to its higher implied volatility compared to the historical volatility of the underlying stock.
Due to the significant drop in ANNUM's share price from its high, as well as the appearance of new significant shareholders after the issuance of the additional shares, there is a greater possibility of a rebound at a lower level, leading to support from investors for ANNUM-WA, which has a lower entry cost.

For those thinking of investing in this company, have a look at Eskons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1byo-eO4CM Eksons was originally a plywood manufacturer which then diversified into property development. In Jan 2023 Eksons ceased the plywood business. Doesn’t this path sound familiar when you look at Annum?
Becareful with this conman counter! News of searching for new Auditors doesn't look good, Malaysia got so many auditor firms why is it so hard to find a one? Unless you want to get someone so sign off your dubious accounts and report. Investors be cautious!
