Landmarks' RNAV & Sungei Wang REIT

This is not an attempt to further promote Landmarks but rather a clarification. The RNAV looks at the book value of assets and compare that to the independent valuation or closest to market valuation. Then we take the market values with the corresponding capital rates, deduct the book value to get the revaluation surplus. We then add the revaluation surplus to shareholders funds to get the RNAV.

Datai 33% - RM125m
Datai Hotel 33% - RM85m
Datai Golf Course 33% - RM7m
Datai Land 33% - RM35m
Andaman 100% - RM145m
Sungei Wang Plaza 100% - RM560m
Shangrila Hotel 27% - RM300m
Teknologi Tenaga Perlis 20% - RM225m
Landmarks Land 20% - RM35m

The assets under Landmarks are mainly good class assets and many are REIT-able. The company has stayed under the radar for a long time because the controlling shareholder was holding just 18% and did not have the financial muscle to get a bigger stake. The recent popularity of REIT makes a lot of sense to other predators to control Landmarks as they could unlock a lot of hidden values in the stock. It appears that there are now more than 2 parties keen to get control of the company, which bodes well for Landmarks and their minority shareholders.

The first step to unlocking is via the SungeiWang-Andaman REIT. Back in Sep 2005, the company proposed a SungeiWang REIT and that was shockingly rejected in Feb 2006 due to only one property and a low stakeholding in SWPlaza with no growth plans. A new REIT proposal was submitted in the same month. In April 2006, the new SW-Andaman REIT was approved. Last month the Securities Commission approved the disposal of SWP and Andaman. The REIT should list by October 2006. One can expect a cash dividend of 50 sen per Landmark share or get one free REIT for every two Landmarks shares held.

The next unlocking step could involve the attractive Shangrila Hotel shares. The company could distribute the shares to Landmarks' shareholders, which works out to be worth another RM0.64 per share, add that to the REIT's RM0.50, its looking good. But a caveat here, the Shangrila stake has largely be pledged as collateral for a RM185m RSS Bond, together with cash flow from datai's operations (hence the non-involvement of Datai in the SW-REIT proposal). Even so, any sale would go down to reducing debt substantially. Hence, it is more likely that the next asset sale will be its 20% stake in Teknologi Tenaga Perlis power plant, very easy to sell owing to the DCF predictability. The power plant stake should bring in RM225m or nearly another 50 sen in pure cash dividend.

Aside from the new shareholders in Zimulia, Killinghall (M) Bhd just announced that its chairman Syed YusofSyed Nasir has emerged as a substantial shareholder of property group Landmarks. An exchange circular quoted Syed as saying that he had bought 5.23 pct or 24.65 mln shares in Landmarks on the open market. ............ Let the games begin....

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.

My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.

I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.

My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…

PUC - An Assessment

PUC has tried to reinvent itself following the untimely passing of its founder last year. His younger brother, who was highly successful in his own right, was running Pictureworks in a number of countries in Asia.

The Shares Price Rise & Possible Catalysts

Share price has broken its all time high comfortably. The rise has been steady and not at all volatile, accompanied by steady volume, which would indicate longer term investors and some funds already accumulating nd not selling back to the market.

Potential Catalyst #1

The just launched Presto app. Tried it and went to the briefing. Its a game changer for PUC for sure. They have already indicated that the e-wallet will be launched only in 1Q2018. Now what is Presto, why Presto. Its very much like Lazada or eBay or Alibaba. Lazada is a platform for retailers to sell, full stop. eBay is more for the personal one man operations. Alibaba is more for wholesalers and distributors.

Presto links retailers/f&b/services originators with en…

How Long Will The Bull Lasts For Malaysia

Are we in a bull run? Of course we are. Not to labour the point but I highlighted the start of the bull run back in January this year... and got a lot of naysayers but never mind:

p/s: needless to say, this is Jing Tian ... beautiful face and a certain kind of freshness in her looks and acting career thus far

I would like to extend my prediction that the bull run for Bursa stocks should continue to run well till the end of the year. What we are seeing for the past 3 weeks was a general lull where volume suddenly shrunk but the general trend is still intact. My reasons for saying so:

a) the overall equity markets globally will be supported by a benign recovery complemented by a timid approach to raising rates by most central banks

b) thanks to a drastic bear run for most commodities, and to a lesser extent some oil & gas players, the undertone for "cost of materials" have been weak and has pr…
