Why major shareholders selling immediately after the announcement? Very strange.

Private placement of up to 20 per cent of paid up at 20 per cent discount. Market practice is only 5 per cent discount. No wonder the price drop so much after the announcement. Major shareholder sold before announcement. Is this insider trading. Bursa please investigate.

Hi matt88 - I am not overly concerned about the major shareholder's sale of 2 mil shares, which, according to the same Bursa announcement, makes up barely 2% of her (MADAM SHANTAMALAR A/P C.SIVASUBRAMANIAM) holdings. So, I wouldn't link it with private placement exercise announcement that was made a few days later on Aug 17.

Anyone here in the know re the proposed private placement, beyond what was announced? Thanks in advance.

Having looked a little deeper into HEB, I found that the recently concluded quarter was its best since Q3-2018. Its profit margin had for the first time since the earlier period crossed the 10% threshold. The earnings per share, too, is the best since the earlier period.

Should HEB were to maintain a similar performance moving forward -- I think this is highly likely given its recent big wins and its performance over the years paying down debt -- at an annualized EPS of, say, 3.2 cents, and a PER of 28 (based on past performance), we get a target price of RM 0.89. If we were to conservatively price it at 15 (for the so-called Peter Lynch Earnings Line), we'd get a target price of RM 0.47.

So, at RM 0.355, HEB does appear to be selling at a discount of 25% to 60%, depending on how conservatively we price the business. To me, it's a buy.

HSS Engineers (HSS MK)
BUY (maintain) Price Target: RM0.82
Up/Downside: +115.8% Previous Target (Rating): RM0.82 (BUY)
Multiple growth drivers
➢ We hosted HSS management for a meeting with 12 institutional investors
➢ The RM998m Project Management Consultant (PMC) secured contract for the
Klang Valley MRT Line 3 (MRT3) project provides good earnings visibility
➢ HSS is expanding its engineering services to other industries and pursuing
overseas expansion to diversify geographically. HSS remains a sectortop BUY
with an unchanged target price (TP) of RM0.82, based on a 2023E PER of 18x
MRT3 PMC contract provides long-term earnings visibility
HSS accepted the Letter of Appointment from MRT Corporation on 4 August 2022 to
provide PMC services for the MRT3 project with an estimated value of RM997.9m over
the expected duration of 11 years. We understand that the revenue will mostly be
recognised in the first 8 years for the engineering design and project management of the
civil works portion of the MRT3.
Geographical diversification and expansion of services
HSS’ remaining order book of RM1.5bn will provide earnings visibility over the coming 5-
8 years. New contract wins hit a new high of RM1.09bn YTD 2022. HSS is still targeting
another RM150-200m of contract wins in 2H22 with a tender book of RM400m currently.
Some ongoing bids/negotiations for new projects are the Bayan Lepas and Johor LRTs,
Sarawak Metro, Westport Phase 2, PJD Link Highway, KL-Karak Highway Widening,
Kuching Airport expansion, and flood mitigation, water and sewerage projects. HSS is
also expanding geographically by pursuing Asian projects in collaboration with Japanese
consultants and expanding its services to other industries such as the telecommunication
(5G network infrastructure) and digital technology (data centre) sectors.
Private placement and bonus issue of warrants
HSS proposed a private placement of new shares up to 20% of share capital and bonus
issue of 1 warrant for every 3 existing shares held on 17 August 2022. We gather that the
private placement is a contingency plan and the new equity issuance will only be required
if HSS needs working capital for its projects. Indications are working capital requirements
for its projects can be met with internally-generated funds and bank borrowings. Net
gearing is low at 0.1x as at end-2Q22. Hence, new equity funding from the proposed
private placement and exercise of warrants may not be required, in our opinion.
Remains a top sector BUY
The core 2023E PER of 8x is attractive considering its strong 2-year core EPS CAGR of
45% in 2023-24E. We maintain our BUY call with a 12-month TP of RM0.82, based on
target 2023E PER of 18x. Key risks are political uncertainties and slow roll-out of
infrastructure projects.

CIMB -Reiterate Add and TP of RM1.21

We reiterate Add on HSS with a DCF-derived TP of RM1.21 (WACC: 9.4%, TG: 4.5%). At our TP, HSS will trade at 16.6x FY24F P/E, which is still below mean post-Covid-19. Downside risks are slower rollout of projects and single project risk from MRT 3 PMC.

We maintain our view that, while officially its tenderbook is at RM415m (historically 50% success rate.

There is a potential RM1.9bn worth of engineering and project management services (EPMS) projects in the pipeline locally over the next two years .

HSS Engineers Bhd remains positive on its outlook for financial year 2024


Although the group did not provide any guidance on project wins for FY24 during its recent Malaysia Corporate Day, HSS expects 2024 to be a better year, according to CGS-CIMB Research.

It noted that in the first nine months of 2023, the group’s core net profit increased by 43% year-on-year, with project replenishment totalling RM300mil.

HSS has a tender book of RM442mil with historically a 50% success rate.

The research firm said the biggest setback for HSS was the further extension of the validity period for the Mass Rapid Transit 3 (MRT 3) civil packages.

“This is the fourth extension, with the period now ending in March 2024.

“Nevertheless, recent news from the Transport Minister that land acquisition will commence this year over a two-year timeline gave some assurance that awards could be imminent.

“HSS’ outstanding order book as at September 2023 was RM1.49bil, of which we estimate 60% to be its project management consultancy (PMC) contract for MRT 3,” said CGS-CIMB Research.

For its current PMC role in the MRT3 project, the research house added that it is still undergoing optioneering and land acquisition work and a strong pick-up in revenue recognition would be visible once the three large civil packages for MRT 3 are awarded.

“Once that happens, more engineers can be deployed and progress billings will pick up exponentially.”

However, the research house said the slack from MRT 3 delays could possibly be picked up by other projects, such as its lead design consultant role for Westports phase two, which is estimated to have a contract value of RM100mil to RM150mil.

It said the more immediate wins for the group could be from flood mitigation projects, the Penang Light Rapid Transit and Pan Borneo Sabah phase 1B.

A total of 33 high priority flood mitigation projects will be rolled out, costing about RM11.8bil under Budget 2024.

“Out of this, HSS has submitted engineering design bids for the smaller projects (worth RM500mil)

“For Pan Borneo Sabah phase 1B, the awards should happen soon. HSS was awarded a RM145mil PMC role for Pan Borneo Sabah phase 1A (15 packages) in April 2021.

“As phase 1B will comprise 19 packages worth RM15.7bil, we estimate the PMC role to be worth RM300mil,” added CGS-CIMB Research.

The company is currently working on overseas ventures in Japan to facilitate a private and public partnership project with the Japan Overseas Infrastructure Investment Corp for transport and urban development.
