Heng Huat: RM15mil PATAMI On Track
Heng Huat FY15Q2 Financial Results
Heng Huat's FY15Q2's revenue is marginally higher than FY15Q1 but PBT increases by an astonishing 77%, thanks to vast improvement in profit margin.
It is a record-breaking quarter for this relatively new company proposing to be transferred to main board.
The higher profit margin is contributed by higher average selling price of its biomass materials and lower raw material cost.
However, revenue from mattress division falls quite significantly but still able to stay profitable.
At first half of FY15, revenue increases 17% to RM53mil, while PATAMI improves 39% to RM7.95mil compared to 1H14.
This means that the RM15mil PATAMI the management guided earlier is highly achievable.
Heng Huat has recently completed the acquisition of land in Gua Musang to build a new plant which is expected to be operational in Q2 of 2016.
The new plant will increase its oil palm EFB fibre production lines from 20 to 27, with annual capacity rising from 100.5k tonnes to 135k tonnes.
The capacity expansion is mainly to cater for rising China demand, as well as new markets in Australia, South Korea and Japan.
Besides, the construction of its biomass power plant is expected to be completed in Q3 of 2016.
After bonus issue, Heng Huat's ordinary shares have increased to 308.7mil.
If its PATAMI can reach RM15mil in FY15, projected EPS will be 4.86sen.
At current share price of 37.5sen, it is trading at forward PE of 7.7x.
As about 45% of its sales are to China, current devaluation of RMB and fear of China slow down have already affected Heng Huat's share price negatively.
Its share price has fallen 19% from 45.5sen since its bonus issue ex-ed in early July.
Since biomass market is forecasted to grow further, and Heng Huat is still showing signs of growth, probably I will continue to hold its shares despite China concern.
