they are always a profitable construction company with real construction team. unlike some hokidoki counters. anyway the material litigation case is just done by someone jealous of them. making life hard. all contract signed with condition precedent and consideration which is signed and verified for each page and if not met why sue someone ? opportunity loss isn't something known risk as condition precedent isn't met. Anyway the covid situation has make this counter a good one. Dato let's make this a come back. for your investor that follow you.

For 6MFY21, cumulative net profit stood at RM6.5m vs. a net loss of RM4.2m recorded in the previous corresponding quarter. Revenue for the period grew 29.7% YoY to RM398.5m. The reported net profit came within expectations, making up to 47.1% of our net profit forecast of RM13.6m. We expect further recovery is in store towards the remainder of the year with kitchen sinking exercises completed in FY20.

Protasco Decentrum City, one of the projects of Protasco Bhd

KUALA LUMPUR: Protasco Bhd returned to the black in the second quarter, boosted by stronger contribution by its road maintenance division.

The company made a net profit of RM6.4mil in the three-month ended June 30, 2021 compared with a loss of RM1.7mil a year ago.

Revenue improved to RM189mil from RM172mil previously, Protasco said in a filing with Bursa Malaysia yesterday.

Maintenance business generated a revenue of RM142.3mil and a pre-tax profit of RM11.7mil.

anyone know what/who is the Non-controlling Interest mentioned in the reports?
Why profit need to go to this non-controlling interest before share to share holder?

2021-11-19 16:17

shortinvestor77

For example, if the organization owns 70% of the subsidiary and a minority partner owns 30% and subsidiaries net income say $1M. The non-controlling interest would be calculated as $1M x 30% = $300k. This $300k would be placed on a non-operating line item on the Income Statement.

Many thanks for the explanation.
but this seem doesn't apply to PRTasco Non-controlling Interest. The Non-controlling interest not only share the profit, but they do have guaranteed return, their return will not lower than RM3,000,000 per quarter. Like happened in 2020 Mar & 2020 Jun, the Net profit before tax is not enough to pay the guaranteed return to Non-controlling interest, the owner was force to record in loss in order to pay the guaranteed return, even the Net profit before tax on that quarter was report positive....
the worst happened on 2020 Dec, the company report Net lost but still pay to these non-controlling interest.....
2020 Sep the pay to non controlling interest had increased to RM7,738,000!

minority interest means shareholders at the subsidiary level. it is fairly split even among based on percentage. so some subsi who made more pay more less the lesser. is fair one la. Lol. it is not preference share btw. minority interest is just the smaller shareholders at subsidiary

From the date it start to jump up, seem like main reason is legal action was proceed to the persons who were said cheated to the company during the Indonesia investment.

13 Dec 2023
LEGAL SUIT AGAINST PT ANGLO SLAVIC UTAMA (1st Defendant), TEY POR YEE (2nd Defendant) AND OOI KOCK AUN (3rd Defendant)

21 Dec 2023
BANKRUPTCY PROCEEDINGS AGAINST TEY POR YEE AND OOI KOCK AUN


another reason could be the company finally gain positive profit on 3rd quarter.

2023-12-28 09:37

virgogo

Both Tey and Ooi are former directors of Protasco Bhd. The company was misled by the 2 directors to invest
in Indonesia. High court found them guilty. They are well to do individuals. If Protasco is able to recover just
half of the judgment sum, will be good enough.

2024-01-22 21:55

virgogo

Aiyo. Tun Daim has already lost his influence in awarding contracts. Businessman like Chong are pragmatic and
will keep in touch with those in power so that he continue to do business and get contracts. Look at the new
contracts awarded to the company the past 2 years. Same as Vincent Tan, who is friendly to all politicians past and present. Someone is intentionally trying to tarnish Chong name. Maybe because of the court case he won recently

Another messy company involving messy Sales and Purchase deal.
YNH property
Bursa Securities unearths RM150m oversight by YNH Property

By Faiqah Kamaruddin
January 18, 2024 @ 10:50am

KUALA LUMPUR: Heavy selling pressure in YNH Property Bhd has led Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd to unearth an oversight on YNH Property Bhd's part in not announcing a planned acquisition of a 2.06 hectare site in Desa Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur for RM150 million. 

When queried by Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd on an announcement made in May 2023 that its subsidiary Kar Sin Bhd is to dispose of land in Desa Hartamas for RM170 million to Sunway Living Space Sdn Bhd, YNH Property said not announcing the proposed acquisition of the Desa Hartamas land from Great Wall Park Sdn Bhd (GWP) was an oversight on its part.

Citing the company's response to a query by Bursa Securities on May 25, 2023 and a query from Bursa Securities on the proposed disposals dated Jan 16, 2024, Bursa Securities asked YNH Property to provide the details and update on the steps/actions taken in rectifying the oversight and ensure that an announcement on the said acquisition is made prior to seeking the approval of YNH's shareholders for the said acquisition.


On April 18, 2022, the wholly-owned subsidiary of the YNH Property, Kar Sin Bhd (KSB) entered into a sale and purchase agreement with Great Wall Park Sdn Bhd (GWP) for the proposed acquisition of 2.06 hectare of land in Desa Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur for RM150 million.
In April 2022, KSB and GWP entered into a supplemental agreement to use RM239.5 million owing to KSB by GWP following the termination of a turney construction agreement dated June 20, 2016 to be paid as purchase consideration for the land
In September 2022, KSB and GWP agreed that KSB is not to to develop the Desa Hartamas land and KSB has sold the land to a third party purchaser.

The remainder RM89.5 million is to be refunded by GWP to KSB by June 30, 2024.
Questions...
1.Will GWP refund $RM89. 5million to YNH?
2.Original land purchase by YNH subs is RM $150m, than revised to RM170m, than revised to $RM239. 5m. YNH overpaid by $239.5m- $150m=$89.5m.

Some times companies look for new ventures because the existing ones are not able to scale up. But new venture use up funds.

Take the case of Protasco. The company has reported 11 business segments even though the revenue for 2023 was only about 1 RM billion.

You may be forgiven for wondering whether management is just trying many things to see what works. When you look at the chart, you can see that only one segment is driving revenue and earnings. https://i.postimg.cc/3wXQxfYW/Protasco.png

It suggests that management is trying luck to see what else they can do. The worse part is that several of its historical ventures have lost money. And there are some which have ended up as legal cases as the company tried to recover what was paid.

I would think that it may be better for the company to return the excess funds to shareholders than try luck. Protasco is a cash cow. But the cash is not well deployed.

Not possible for rights issue. Company has cash Rm130mil. April 2023 already announced sale of the university infrastructure. Any successful disposal means shrink in balance sheet and theoretically share price should go up. If there is any profits from asset sale, a bonus issue is more likely as compared to rights issue. Retained earnings of Rm50mil is big enough for the company to do a one off bonus issue. Owner is old enough to retire. Bonus issue one big one before retirement is very possible.

Insas cash rich pun ada Rights Issue kenapa Prtasco tak boleh?

@Speakup, when did Insas do right issue? Rights issue has few purposes to raise money. Company in cash trap and need fund, shareholders dilution etc. Did Insas do right issue?When and why?

happylov3r

I tend to agree with 10xGoreng that the company does not need any more money if there's an asset sale. And if you look into the accounts, there is a possibility they could do a bonus issue if the sale of asset is at premium, if not a one-off dividend. Worst come to worst, share price would benefit first before all these potential payouts.

I saw some earlier comments that there is a privatisation offer of 60c. Not a surprise too as company is way undervalued. If we use RM336mil equity divide by 495mil number of shares, the liquidation price is at 67c, which is approximately double from current.

This could be a hidden gem given that the property stocks are moving due to stability and proactive government. Malaysia Boleh!!

The asset sale is a right move. If the university not making money, they should sell it. For all these years it has been paying dividend to reward shareholders. Time to reward us again.
