I foresee the major shareholder might initiate a selective capital repayment at RM2.00+, then they no need to loan from bank and privatise the company.

B3. COMMENTARY ON PROSPECTS AND TARGETS, STRATEGIES AND RISKS
APM is principally involved in the design, manufacturing, assembly and production of automotive and
mobility components. APM’s main operation is located in Malaysia but it is also present in various other
jurisdictions, including United States of America, Netherlands, Australia, Thailand, Vietnam and the
Republic of Indonesia.
The Group’s overall performance in the fourth quarter of 2020 is expected to be challenging and may
even experience a decline, particularly in view of Bank Negara’s revision of Malaysia’s gross domestic
product (GDP) growth forecast for 2020 to between -3.5% and -5.5% from -2% and 0.5%, due mainly to
changes in world growth forecasts and the unprecedented length of the MCO, CMCO and RMCO.
The Group’s forecast is further compounded by the present political uncertainties locally and abroad
(especially that of the United States of America) and the expected disruption to the Group’s operations in
light of the anticipated the second and possibly the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic

B3. COMMENTARY ON PROSPECTS AND TARGETS, STRATEGIES AND RISKS (CONT’D)
Nonetheless, the Group will remain vigilant and continue with its austerity measures which include, interalia deferring capital expenditure, maintaining salary reduction, hiring freeze, cost rationalization and
participating in the Government’s Prihatin program to conserve cash flows.
The Group will also continue its focus on long-term plans and strategies for business sustainability and
continue to strive for greater success expeditiously through mergers, acquisitions, strategic partnerships,
joint-ventures and alliances.
All in all, the Group remains cautiously optimistic in view of the progress shown towards development of
the COVID-19 vaccine but do not foresee pre-pandemic performance revival to occur in the short term.

Soaring 26% in just FOUR days!

2020-12-05 08:31

k3nthiew

Yes... unusual... maybe is privatize or asset disposal

2020-12-07 10:51

riskabsorber

Not likely will privatize from my point of view.
1) Capex need for Indonesia
2) Controlling party are holding lesser than 50%, and the volume traded is also lesser than 200k per day. (No risk of hostile takeover)
3) Low ROE (<3% per year)
4) High NTA but not generating high return (CEO big salary to themselves)

COMMENTARY ON PROSPECTS AND TARGETS, STRATEGIES AND RISKS
APM Group is principally involved in the design, manufacturing, assembly and production of automotive
and mobility components. Whilst APM Group’s main operations are located in Malaysia, the Group is also
present in various other jurisdictions, including United States of America, Netherlands, Australia, Thailand,
Vietnam, the Republic of Indonesia and recently, the United Kingdom.
Notwithstanding the Malaysian Automotive Association’s (MAA) downward revision of its Total Industry
Volume forecast for 2021 by about 5% (as announced by the MAA on 21 January 2021), the Group is
positive that its prospects will improve going into Q3’21 and Q4’21 in view of inoculations efforts against
the COVID-19 pandemic in Malaysia and elsewhere being ramped up recently; the implementation of
economic stimuli plans, such as the PEMERKASA Plus by the government to further mitigate the impact
of this pandemic; Bank Negara’s decision to maintain the benchmark Overnight Policy Rate (OPR) at 1.75%,
which will provide additional policy stimulus to accelerate the pace of economic recovery; the potential
introduction of newer vehicle models by carmakers at competitive prices to sustain buying interest; and
more importantly, the anticipated resumption of operations (whether fully or partially) for those in the
automotive industry whose employees have been fully vaccinated by Q3’21. There are no plans for lay-offs
or plant closures going forward.
However, we expect such improvements to be gradual in view of the uncertainties stemming from the
escalation of major raw material prices, such as Polyurethane or PU padding chemical, plastic resins and
steel as well as the rise of logistical cost, all of which are expected to dampen the recovery progress.
By and large, the Group remains cautious in its approach as overall consumer sentiments are anticipated to
remain weak for now due to apprehension and uncertainties in the economic environment. Consequently,
the Group does not anticipate full pre-pandemic recovery to occur in the near or mid-term.
The Group will nonetheless maintain its focus on long terms strategies for business sustainability and
continue to strive for success expeditiously through mergers, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, joint
ventures and alliances

During the period under review, the Group withdrew RM54.4 million from its’ investment in unit trust
compared to the increase of RM11.1 million a year before, resulting in financing activities generating
net cash of RM30.7 million to the Group. Meanwhile, as reported in the last quarter’s report, the Group
successfully established a joint venture (“Joint Venture”) with Hyundai Transys Inc. for the
establishment of PT APM Hyundai Transys Indonesia to manufacture and supply automobile seats and
their related parts and components to its counterpart in Indonesia, namely PT Hyundai Motor
Manufacturing Indonesia. The amount of RM16.3 million, being the final tranche of capital for the Joint
Venture on the Group’ portion was disbursed in Q1’2021.
