so with the unconditional take over of Daibochi, where will this lead us as a holder of Scientex? any thoughts about this?

2021-09-13 14:36

dragon328

The offer price of RM2.70 is too low for Daibochi minority shareholders to accept, but it is a bargain price to Scientex to raise its stakes in Daibochi.

Offer price should be raised to at least RM3.30 - 3.50 to get more shares in Daibochi to get to 90% stakes.

Legacy company. Not really bullish on Scientex. More suitable for long term investors. If you cannot wait for retirement, then better not buy.

My friend, Scientex packaging segment contribute 68% in revenue and their capital expenditure for 2022 to spend Rm200 million for packaging machinery. Its nice one.

While property development contribute 32% revenue which their capital expenditure 2022 for property development will use Rm800 million to grow land bank on affordable house. This affordable house is a good target market in these recovery era for post-Covid19. The construction and property sector are slowly better now due to the government has allowed the sector to make applications for foreign workers. For Feb 2022 only, almost 200,000 foreign workers has been approved their applications to work for the affected sector that rely on foreign workers.

If you want to talk about their debt, their debt to asset ratio (below 1 ratio) and the current ratio (above 1 ratio) shows the Scientex can meet its current obligations which their overall financial health is good.

Scientex also has strong operational cash flow due to their main revenue from packaging segment which is contribute 68% to the comnpany. Look at their net income also steadily increase even though in pandemic era (their packaging segment is perform well)
-2019 RM333.70 million
-2020 RM390.11 million
-2021 RM457.23 million

This 2022 Scientex told they will continue acquisition of plastic & packaging companies and this is a good thing. As Scientex will acquire the other packaging company include the existing customer of those company too. Ofcourse they will intergrate each of their factories operation will result in better cost-wise.

Take a look of Scientex's track record of Merger & Acquisition here:
2019 - Mega Printing & Packaging Sdn Bhd
2018 - Klang Hock Plastic Industries Sdn Bhd
2015 - Mondi Ipoh Sdn Bhd
2014 - Seacera Polyfilms Sdn Bhd
2013 - Great Wall Plastic Industries Sdn Bhd
2012 - GW Packaging Sdn Bhd

Malaysia reopen border is just around the corner, imagine all their packaging factories operate in full capacity because of the demand from consumer, retail, tourism, industrial and etc. It is just a matter of time for the Scientex's price stock will.................... you know the answer.

Heard that they are in deep trouble with all their customers affected across the board. Better get out while you still can.

Unker is spot on this time. Never mind about rising price in plastic; Scientex would even face acute shortages in their raw material for production. None of their business portfolio is preparing them for this. https://klse.i3investor.com/web/blog/detail/kianweiaritcles/2022-03-08-story-h1600130091-Oil_shock_hitting_plastics_in_first_sign_of_demand_destruction

I think stockpip’s view is a bit simplistic. In an effort to obtain a more considered view of the effect of an oil price (and presumably correlated availability) shock on the profitability of Scientex, I examined the profitability and share price of the company from a few years before until a few years after the Global Financial Crisis of 2007 to 2009. Regrettably I cannot present a chart on this platform, but here are the statistics in tabular form:

In case it gets mixed up, the columns left to right are the quarter, manufacturing revenue and result, property development revenue and result, approximate share price at the end of the quarter, price of oil at the end of the quarter (Cushing, OK WTI) and the S&P500 at the end of the quarter. E&OE.

The progressive increase in revenue as the oil price increases rather looks to me like the company is able to pass on increases in its input costs as the price of oil increases. Despite the volatility in operating profit, the company’s share price would seem to have been remarkably stable until the Lehman-precipitated recession and stock market crash of September 2008. But even under those extreme conditions, the share price only dropped 32% peak-to-trough and then recovered again within a year.

My conclusion is that although there might be some oil-price-induced hiccups in operating profit from the manufacturing division, there is insufficient evidence to support the notion that the volatility will propagated into a foreseeable reduction in share price. In comparison, a global recession is much more likely to result in such a reduction, but that in such circumstances, the company is robust and likely to recover quickly.

The Group’s revenue for the current financial quarter stood at RM993.8 million compared to RM952.0 million recorded in the preceding financial quarter. The increase in revenue was mainly contributed by the packaging division. The Group’s profit before tax stood at RM120.3 million for the current financial quarter as compared to RM124.1 million in the preceding financial quarter due to lower operating profit reported in the property division.

Packaging Division continues to face operational challenges due to factors such as the ongoing geopolitical tension, global supply chain challenges, shortage of labour and rising inflationary pressures which have led to volatility in raw material prices
and elevated operational costs.

Property Division continues to see favourable demand for its affordable housing with the easing of restriction and reopening of its international border. Its showhouses have seen an uptick in the number of visitors especially in the Johor Region with the
reopening of Malaysia-Singapore border. However, the Division was affected by slower progress due to labour shortages, deferment of CCC in certain projects due to shortage of materials for the installation of power supply infrastructure as well as
delay in obtaining permits and approvals for new product launches from the relevant authorities. In addition, with the increase in material cost, the Group is also constantly reviewing the pricing of its products whilst maintaining its product affordability.
