MYEG's net profit grew by a healthy 16.4% YoY the back of 19.8% surge in revenue. The commendable performance was due to the launch of the group's new Online Road volume, which helped offset the lower contribution from JPJ side. The company spent RM19.6mn for capex in FY09 100% increase in capex compared to FY08. They have expanded the number of its E-Service centers and the accessibility of e-Government services nationwide with the new centers and kiosks.

New services to be rolled out over the next two years.
‐E‐application if vehicle registration numbers
‐ Vehicle Owenership Transfer
‐ Online renewal of Foreign Worker's permit with of Immigarion Department
‐ Online transaction services for Department of Statistics
‐ Extension of services for National Registration Department
‐ New Vehicle Registration

Nobody in their right mind would play MYEG, look at the tight 52 week high-low range. Look at the tight free float. Its very much a Government-linked vehicle. Made a net EPS of 2.4 sen for year ended June 2009, and is on track to make at least 4 sen a share for June 2010.Net profit for the two years: RM17.2m and RM24m respectively.

Main Catalyst - The implementation of the new GST. The company is not only the front runner, it is miles ahead of the next runner. A
lready they have a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) which has been set up to undertake a project, namely Custom's Tax Monitoring System. This system will capture Sales and Service Tax transaction as it happens at point of sales, and transmit the information online to Central Database. The SPV will be paid based on system's efficiency in increasing tax collection. The total investment will be RM100mn and the investment will be roll out in stages basis. MYEG is in a net cash position currently of RM9.5mn as at 30, June 2009. Based on that and the news flow, MYEG is very likely to be the main player for rolling out the "support services" for the new GST.

I don't have to mention how big a kicker the new GST will be for MYEG as not only will they get paid for providing the collection system, it will also get a cut on how efficient it works. No targets here but hey, lets take out the 52 week high of 64 sen first. That's the short term play, longer term it will morph into a giant fee collection machine.
