Its a small company and the shares have almost never been played up. The company manages its finances prudently. It has some RM11m in cash. The company has been making money in good and bad economic times. Not very exciting but steady like a rock. NAV at 22 sen.
Figures for 2007 / 2008 / 2009 / 2010 (est.)

Look at the price chart its has always stayed at 14-16 sen for the longest time. However, some activity drove the shares a bit over the past week. The grapevine has it that a controlling block has been sold and that the counter should be in for some excitement with a strategic asset injection. Although we may not know the actual assets being injected, it is relatively safe at present levels for a trade (20-21 sen). Apparently the controlling block changed hands at levels much higher than the current share price.
