献购价不会调整‧Ninetology:非敌意购灵通方案


(吉隆坡30日讯)有意以每股55仙向灵通方案(INGENS,0034,创业板科技组)4位大股东收购持股的Ninetology行销公司表示,这並非敌意收购,该公司是以“中立"態度进行併购。


Ninetology行销公司首席执行员兼董事经理黄治宪指出,献议价格將不会更改或调整,一旦落实,將把灵通方案私有化。

黄治宪表示,若是以每股55仙全面收购灵通方案股票和凭单,预料需要耗资约3亿6千万令吉。

一旦该公司指定的4名大股东无条件接受有关献议,由於持股超过33%,该公司需要以相同价格,强制性全面收购其余尚未持有的股份。

询及它的收购计划的主要融资来源时,他表示已有足够资金,主要来自天使投资者,合作伙伴等,並且有一班諮询顾问队伍提供一切收购程序与建议,惟后者並不是来自投资银行,而融资也不是来自商业银行或金融机构,一切资金都是来自投资者。

询及该公司选择收购灵通方案的原因,他表示,灵通方案是马股中唯一能够提供该公司所寻找扩展的4个核心业务的公司,包括商业软件方案,系统整合及服务,科技通讯硬件及软件分销及服务,以及通讯產品及分销服务等4大领域。

放眼5至10年
成区域流动互联网供应商

黄治宪今日在新闻发佈会指出,该公司放眼未来5年至10年內,成为区域的流动互联网供应商,主要提供便宜可承担的流动互联网產品与服务。而通过收购行动,將加速该公司达到这项目標,也可发挥事半功倍的效果。

Ninetology行销有限公司是於今年3月成立,並於今年5月正式注册。

该公司有两名股东,包括该公司首席营运员马兴泰。而黄治宪则是公司业务的主要推动者。

该公司的核心业务是製造及供应流动电话,流动內容及商业方案给全国各地的二手销售商及代理商。

该公司股价今日一度涨升7.5仙至47仙的高峰,惟全天收市时,它反跌2.5仙,至37仙,全天成交量达到8千518万零900股,显示交投仍然活络。(星洲日报/財经)



Ninetology optimistic of buying Ingenuity by Sept

NINETOLOGY Marketing Sdn Bhd says it is optimistic of taking over ACE Market-listed Ingenuity Solutions Bhd in a cash deal worth RM360 million by September.

Chief executive and managing director, Sean Ng said Ninetology has secured "enough" financing from foreign investors for the acquisition, and to expand its business over the next five to ten years.

It is understood Ninetology has strong backing from cash-rich investors in China and Singapore.

Ninetology, incorporated in March this year, is a mobile device technology firm led by Ng and chief operations officer, Marco Beh, both formerly from Singapore's Spice-CSL Pte Ltd, which makes and sells mobile handsets and accessories.
The company is offering to buy 39.44 per cent stake or 214.3 million shares from major shareholder Chin Boon Long, Firstwide Success Sdn Bhd, Landasan Simfoni Sdn Bhd and Titanium Hallmark Sdn Bhd at 55 sen per share.

The offer stands for 14 days starting from Wednesday and will only be executed on the premise that all and not one or some of the above named persons accept the offer unconditionally. If the deal goes through, it would trigger a mandatory general offer to acquire all the remaining shares it does not already own in Ingenuity.

Ng said Ninetology intends to control 100 per cent of Ingenuity and maintained that the final offer for the company was 55 sen per share.

Year-to-date, Ingenuity's share price has increased from 6 sen to peak at 46.5 sen on August 23. The stock fell 2.5 sen yesterday to close at 37 sen.

"This is not a hostile takeover but a friendly approach. We are serious about buying Ingenuity and taking it private. We don't want a listed vehicle. We want value. We want control of Ingenuity," Ng said yesterday, at a media briefing.

Ingenuity is involved in business software solutions; system integration and services; IT hardware and software distribution and services; and telecommunication products and distribution services

Ng said Ninetology, whose brand is currently only present here, intends to ride on the value created by Ingenuity to bid for projects regionally and to become a leading mobile internet provider in Asia.

Ninetology has so far launched three smart phones here and it will be introducing new models in the affordable range from next month.

Over the next two years, it plans to penetrate Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, Ng said.


Ninetology’s quirky way of announcing takeover plan paves the way for interesting AGM

IF I were a shareholder of Ingenuity Solutions Bhd, Sept 20 couldn't come soon enough. I would be so eager to go for the ACE Market company's AGM that day in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.

It's not because of a chance to vote on a proposed change of name to Ingenuity Consolidated Bhd. Who cares about the difference between Solutions' and Consolidated' when the share price has gone from 12 sen on Aug 3 to a 12-month high of 51 sen on Aug 23? That's a 325% gain in three weeks.

On Thursday, it closed at 37 sen, no doubt after Ninetology Marketing Sdn Bhd had made public its plan to buy Ingenuity shares at 55 sen each, but only if and it is a big if four leading shareholders of Ingenuity first agree to sell all their shares at the same price.

Those four shareholders (Chin Boon Long, Firstwide Success Sdn Bhd, Landasan Simfoni Sdn Bhd and Titanium Hallmark Sdn Bhd) together own over 39% of Ingenuity's paid-up capital. Each of the quartet is a key factor in whether Ninetology will launch a general offer (GO) for the rest of the Ingenuity shares. A no from any of the four will evaporate any hope of a takeover. The offer to them ends on Sept 12.

So if I were an Ingenuity shareholder, I would want to be at the Sept 20 AGM because there are lots of questions and issues relating to the company that ought to be addressed. Sure, the directors and management are likely to point out that they are in no position to speak on some of these matters, but the meeting will be good place to get a discussion going, even if nobody there can provide definitive answers.

Every shareholder will probably have the same opening question: “Hey, what's going on?” It's natural to ask that, but don't expect a satisfactory explanation to such a broad question. Instead, try throwing around these questions and see what happens:

● When really should Ingenuity be notified about Ninetology's intent?

Being issued with two UMA (unusual market activity) queries from Bursa Malaysia within eight days one on Aug 15 and the other on Aug 22 is usually a sign that something is up with a listed company. Ingenuity issued identical replies to both queries, saying it doesn't know any possible reason for the large price increases and trading volumes other that two developments that had already been announced.

On Monday, media outlets received an invitation sent on behalf of Ninetology. Titled “ACE Market-listed Ingenuity Solutions targeted for reverse takeover?”, it informed that there would be a press conference in Shah Alam on Thursday to announce Ninetology's intent to take over Ingenuity. That led to news reports (including in StarBiz) that Ingenuity might be a GO target.

(In the invitation, Ninetology also committed an ethical no-no of promising a free tablet computer to every journalist attending the press conference so as “to showcase the quality of their new tablet yet to be released in the market”. This seemed to be an ill-advised tactic to maximise media coverage.)

When the stock exchange queried Ingenuity about the StarBiz article on Tuesday, the company said none of its directors and major shareholder “are in any discussion or have any intention whatsoever to take over the company”.

The next day, the company received Ninetology's letter through which it lays out its “restrictive offer” to buy the Ingenuity shares of Chin, Firstwide Success, Landasan Simfoni and Titanium Hallmark at 55 sen per share. In the corporate context, what is a restrictive offer anyway?

The trickle of information continued the next day, at Ninetology's press conference, where it revealed that if its offer to the four shareholders is accepted, it will be obliged to make a GO for the rest of the Ingenuity shares.

This is a highly unusual sequence for unveiling the possible takeover of a listed company. The Malaysian Code on Takeovers and Mergers and its practice notes talk about the conduct of persons who intend or are obliged to make a GO. Do these apply to Ninetology, which indicated an intent to take over Ingenuity as early as on Monday, via the invitation to its press conference?

Why did Ninetology relay this information to the editors but did not approach Ingenuity's board of directors at the same time or earlier? This brings us to the next question.

● Is Ninetology staging a hostile takeover?

It appears that Ninetology is bypassing Ingenuity's management and is going direct to the four shareholders to gain control of the listed company. To most people, that's a hostile takeover.

But there are a couple of things to bear in mind. Ninetology is no stranger to the Ingenuity management. On Aug 1, the two companies set up a joint-venture company called NineZTE Sdn Bhd, which was later appointed the sole vendor for ZTE mobile devices in Malaysia.

Photographs taken at the signing ceremony for the appointment on Aug 15, showing executives from Ninetology, Ingenuity and ZTE (the China telecommuncations giant) in a seemingly congenial mood, certainly did not foreshadow a hostile takeover.

Two of the four Ingenuity shareholders being courted by Ninetology are linked to Ingenuity directors. Chairman Datuk Feroz A S Moidunny has a direct interest in Firstwide Success. Until Aug 17, so did executive director Wong Hun Liang. Ingenuity's other executive director, Low Gah Luen, is a shareholder of Landasan Simfoni.

It's odd for Ninetology to ignore the Ingenuity board and management when making an all-or-nothing offer that can be thwarted by two influential directors. That doesn't at all look like a winning strategy.

● Why did Chin Boon Long sell down and come back within months?

If Chin, who's also the MD of 1Utopia Bhd (like Ingenuity, a technology-based ACE Market company), is at the AGM, it's an opportunity to ask him about his curious transactions in Ingenuity shares this year. He became a substantial shareholder when he bought 47.4 million shares (an 8.73% stake) on March 21. His shareholding dipped below 5% on April 2, when he disposed of 37.2 million shares in the open market.

Less than three months later, he picked up 33.3 million shares in the open market to re-emerge as a substantial shareholder. Based on the latest filing with Bursa Malaysia, he has a direct 12% stake in Ingenuity, while his indirect interest via Firstwide Success is 18%.

Ninetology aims to take over Ingenuity for RM360m

KUALA LUMPUR: Ninetology Marketing Sdn Bhd aims to take over ACE Market-listed Ingenuity Solutions Bhd (ISB) for RM360mil and use the expanded group to bid for regional projects.
"We intend to bid for a few regional projects which will only be possible pursuant to our acquisition of ISB," said Ninetology CEO and managing director Sean Ng.
"With ISB in our enlarged group, we believe we can easily secure these projects as our pricing when submitting for tenders will be more competitive," he said a media briefing on Thursday. Ingenuity had on Wednesday received an offer from Ninetology Marketing Sdn Bhd to acquire a 39.44% stake in the company at 55 sen per share. At 55 sen, this was a premium of 39.2% above the pre-suspension price of 39.5 sen on Wednesday.
Ninetology wanted to acquire the shares from major shareholder Chin Boon Long, Firstwide Success Sdn Bhd, Landasan Simfoni Sdn Bhd and Titanium Hallmark Sdn Bhd.
At midday on Thursday, Ingenuity Solutions and the warrants rose 0.5 sen each to 40 sen and 12.45 sen. Their combined turnover was 101.14 million units.

DiGi expands payment touch points

DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd is expanding and upgrading its electronic flexible payment platform infrastructure to 14,000 new customer touch points nationwide.

In a statement today, DiGi said the touch points, effective today, would offer greater convenience to postpaid and prepaid customers in the rural and suburban areas.

DiGi said when it first started offering electronic reloads, the
denomination values were from RM5 to RM100 with increments of RM1.

"Subsequently, the flexi e-load loose change option was launched in 2006, which allowed the prepaid customers to choose a reload value from RM5 to RM100 with increment of five sen," it said.

It said the new flexi e-load system could also support bill payment by postpaid customers.

"It will enable them to make advance or deposit payments and transact outstanding balance payments for terminated accounts via DiGi's network of dealers.

"Postpaid customers can even request for their outstanding bill balance as well as unbilled amount to settle their bills at participating DiGi outlets," it said.

Meanwhile, its head of product development, Chuah Teong Hooi, said with the new system, DiGi would be able to extend its dealership touch points in areas where the expanded customer base has grown.

"It also accords the added advantage to provide simple yet relevant services to our postpaid customers via our extended network of dealers and street vendors," he said. -- Bernama

AA Q2 2012


Wow! What a surprising report from AA,  a big jump profit for AA this quarter Q2 2012 with not only >100% but >1000% (i.e. 1046%) as compared with same quarter 2011.

Actually nothing to be so excited after reading their quarter report.  The operating profit drop a bit as compared with last year same quarter.  The main gain is from disposal of Thai AirAsia.  That's contributed extra earning about RM 1.16 billion.

AA's net gearing drop to 1.1 from 1.26 (March 2012), but it's still consider high.  Their debt quite high if compared with cash flow.

Anticipating AA Q2 report

AirAsia is going to release Q2 report on coming Tuesday.  Good report or otherwise?  Below are the news from theStar.


AirAsia Q2 results seen flattish on higher jet fuel price

PETALING JAYA: AirAsia Bhd's second quarter results, which is due to be announced next week, is likely to be flattish year-on-year following the rise in jet fuel prices, according to analysts.
“We expect AirAsia's first six months results to meet our forecast but trail the market expectations.
“First half ended June 30 core pre-tax profit of RM350mil to RM360mil will have accounted for 42% to 43% of our full-year pre-tax profit forecast of RM828.1mil but only 36% to 37% of the full-year consensus pre-tax profit of RM965.4mil,” RHB Research said.
RHB estimated that AirAsia's second quarter pre-tax profit would have increased by about RM39.4mil sequentially, mainly due to RM27.4mil positive topline impact coming from an actual 2% rise in number of passengers carried and a 1% sequential growth in average passenger revenue and fuel costs that would have been RM12mil lower on the back of an estimated 3% decline in average jet fuel.
It said as at March 31, AirAsia hedged forward about 40% of its group fuel requirement for second quarter at US$122 per barrel of jet, 12% of its group fuel requirement for July 2012 at US$125 a barrel jet and 27% of its group fuel requirement for second half at US$116 per barrel Brent.
File picture shows AirAsia Berhad Group CEO, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes giving a briefing on the company's strategy at a press conference in Sepang .

Analysts said typically for airlines, their second quarter tends to be the slowest but expect AirAsia's high passenger volume to cover the high fuel prices.
In the second quarter, AirAsia's Malaysian operations flew 4.9 million passengers, taking the number of passengers carried in the first half of 2012 to 9.7 million, which was 10.6% more than the first half 2011.
A local bank-backed analyst said AirAsia would still be profitable but its second quarter results was likely to be slightly weaker year-on-year mainly due to high oil prices and the reduction of ancillary income during the quarter.
Ancillary income comprises core ancillary income in the form of baggage fees, in-flight meals and its duty free operations.
He said AirAsia had cut down on the fee for baggage check-in and would see the impact in the second quarter. “Its yield could probably be better as Firefly is no longer in the picture to compete with AirAsia,” he said, adding that the industry was growing organically and the re-rating would be gradual.
The analyst said high oil prices could continue to be high as geopolitical concerns remained.
RHB Research said AirAsia's near-term earnings growth prospects were less exciting as growth from its domestic operation is tapering off, coming from an enlarged base.
“Not helping either, are lingering losses from its new low-cost carrier start-ups in the Philippines and Japan, as well as an online travel agent joint venture with Expedia Inc of USA (Expedia JV), given the long gestation periods for these new ventures,” it said.

Malaysian Heroes from Olympics 2012

London Olympics 2012 going to be end by today.  The closing ceremony will be on Monday, 13 August 2012, at 04:00hrs Malaysia Time (Kuala Lumpur).

Malaysia successfully grabbed two medals from Olympics 2012 at London.  One from badminton, and another one from diving sport.  There are:

1. Datuk Lee Chong Wei
Sport: Badminton
Event: Men's Singles
From: Perak
Medalist: Silver

2. Pandelela Rinong
Sport: Diving
Event: Women's 10m Platform
From: Sarawak
Medalist: Bronze

It's a good achievement for Malaysia as Malaysia manages to get one Silver and only one medal from previous 2008 Olympics held in Beijing.  It's a good fight for badminton final between Datuk Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan.  For the last match, i.e. 3rd set, the point is damn close before match end at 19-21.  This time, a young hero girl born from diving sport. She just 19 years old.   Although she just managed to win back with bronze medal, but she still got many potential and opportunity for the next Olympics 2016 and 2020.

Congratulation to both our Malaysian heroes.  Malaysia Boleh!

TA on AIRASIA, DVM, E&O (updated)

Following are the updated from previous post (i.e. TA on AIRASIA, DVM, E&O) on 29-07-2012.

AirAsia
Based on the above analysis, AirAsia is more to downtrend.  Support at RM3.56?

DVM
Based on above, the show not come yet.  Wait for next week.

E&O
This counter not only the target hit on 31-07-2012, it's hit limit up RM 1.92 before closed at RM 1.90 on last friday on 10-08-2012.  What's a good shows.  

I believe the gap up on friday after 4pm is due to the rumour news from The Malaysian Insider (SC to order Sime general offer for E&O, say sources).  But, another news from The Star (SC's position on GO in Sime-E&O remains unchanged) out after friday's trading hour.  So, Monday will be another excited shows, the fast and furious shows.  It's just like roller coaster.  One day limit up, and another day limit down?  Let's see how this counter perform on Monday. 

For those done their day trade on Friday, congratulation to you all as earned a handsome profit.  I believe those who bought his son E&O-CA gained the most profit.  While those bought on Friday and still holding it will be worrying over this weekend.

(吉隆坡9日讯)大马首次公开售股(IPO)源源不绝,ASTRO和怡保花园(IGB,1597,主板產业组)旗下零售產业投资信託(IGB Reit)相继在下半年登场,有望巩固大马的IPO市场。
隨市场传,ASTRO將筹措高达约47亿6千万令吉的资金,成为大马今年第三大IPO后,IGB Reit亦在初步招股书阶段,估计上市可筹措约8亿3千800万令吉,成为大马今年第四大IPO。
根据证券监督委员会的资料,ASTRO虽未在初步招股书中公佈筹资规模,惟披露58%资金將用作资本开销,29.3%偿还银行贷款、8.6%为营运资本和上市费用。
至於IGB Reit则初步表示公开发售多达6亿7千万单位,筹资规模料达8亿3千800万令吉,庞大资產值令该公司有望成为大马最大的Reit。
IGB Reit的散户指標价为1令吉25仙,机构价稍后决定,若按该指標价计,上市后的市值或达42亿5千万令吉,领先柏威年產托(PAVREIT,5212,主板產业投资信托组)。(星洲日报/財经)

Internet Down for few days

Damn it!  Without internet connection since last Thursday until today... Really frustrated for these few days.  Nothing can do at home.  It's kinda suffering without internet connection nowadays. Many things cannot do, e.g. pay bill, rental, car or house loan, check your stock portfolio after trading hour, read or write blog, etc.  Finally, the internet connection status is up.
