Astro call warrants make weak debut
- By Francis Fernandez,btimes.com.my

KUALA LUMPUR: Astro Malaysia Holdings Bhd's call warrants sank on their debut yesterday, as investors kept throwing the mother shares.

The Astro mother shares closed eight sen lower at RM2.80. The company was listed this month, with an initial public offer price of RM3 per share.

A total of 10 call warrants made its debut, raising collectively as much as RM120 million by the four banks which had issued the call warrants.

Maybank Investment Bank Bhd issued Astro CA and Astro CB, OSK Investment Bank Bhd Astro CC and Astro CD, AmInvestment Bank Bhd Astro CE, Astro CG, Astro CF and Astro CH while CIMB Bank Bhd CH and CI.

Among the Astro call warrants that traded heavily were the Astro CB and the Astro CG. The Astro CB fell 11.5 sen to 3.5 sen, while the Astro CG was 12 sen lower at three sen apiece.

All the call warrants had an issuing face value of 15 sen, with the exception of Astro CH, which is a put warrant.

A put warrant should in theory rise when the mother stock falls, as it is a bear instrument. It means that investors are betting the mother share will drop.

In the case of Astro CH, it has a RM2.28 strike price with a four-to-one conversion ratio. The Astro HA's issuing price was 4.5 sen.

Excluding the CH put warrant, all the call warrants were priced above RM3, with the exception of the Astro CE, which comes with a strike price of RM2.88 and with an eight-to-one conversion ration. The Astro CE call warrants closed 10 sen lower to five sen apiece.

Meanwhile, the Astro CA call warrants ended four sen lower to 11 sen yesterday, followed by Astro HA call warrants which dropped 5.5 sen to 9.5 sen.

The Astro CC, CD and CF closed the day unchanged at 15 sen a piece.

MPHB is planning to have a major restructuring

MPHB is planning to have a major restructuring that will separate the non-gaming and gaming units. By doing so, a new entity will appear to house its non-gaming assets and leaving Magnum Corporation Bhd the cash-cow and profitable numbers forecast operator alone.

Below are news extracted from Theedgemalaysia.com:

KUALA LUMPUR: Multi-Purpose Holdings Bhd (MPHB) is planning a major restructuring that will feature the creation of a new entity to house its non-gaming assets, a move that will turn the group into a pure proxy for the gaming sector.

Under the plan, MPHB is proposing to inject its interests in properties, hotels and financial services into a special purpose vehicle and leave the group with one asset, Magnum Corp Bhd, the profitable numbers forecast operator.

Financial executives familiar with the corporate proposal said shares in the new entity that will house the group’s non-gaming assets will be distributed to shareholders before a public listing.

MPHB is considering presenting the plan to shareholders at the company AGM today, according to a financial executive familiar with the exercise.

“The purpose of this exercise is to make MPHB a pure gaming outfit while creating another new listed company focusing on properties, hotels and financial services. It’s better to separate the gaming and non-gaming businesses into two listed entities to unlock the values for shareholders,” he said, adding that the listed companies would have greater appeal to different sets of institutional investors.

A restructuring at the MPHB group has been expected since it acquired a 47% stake in Magnum from private equity firm CVC Asia Pacific Ltd and another 2% from certain members of Magnum’s management for a total consideration of RM1.64 billion. That transaction was financed via the issue of new MPHB shares and cash.
In a nutshell, the exercise made Magnum a 100% subsidiary of MPHB, while CVC realised some RM600 million cash from its Magnum stake and received new shares in MPHB. CVC held an 11.21% stake in MPHB as at April 4, making it the second largest shareholder after Casi Management Sdn Bhd, which holds 28.35% equity interest. Casi is a vehicle controlled by Datuk Surin Upatkoon, who effectively owns a 33% stake in MPHB.

While the 2011 exercise mainly benefited CVC, the latest restructuring plan could benefit other MPHB shareholders, who would have shares in the new listed company in addition to their current holdings in MPHB, said a market observer.

Shareholders can either cash out from the new listed company containing the non-gaming assets or stay on to reap the growth of its property development plans.

MPHB entered into a deal with Bandar Raya Developments Bhd (BRDB) last year to jointly develop land in Penang, Rawang and Mimaland (Gombak) in Selangor. The joint development deal covers a total of 670 acres (271ha) and is expected to generate a combined gross development value of around RM4.25 billion.

However, it remains to be seen if the group wishes to further grow its financial services business, which comprises a general insurance business under Multi-Purpose Insurans Bhd and stockbroking outfit A A Anthony Securities Sdn Bhd. It has been reported that MPHB is looking to divest Penang-based A A Anthony through a management buyout.

City in front

Man City are back to the top of Premier League table after beating Man Utd 1:0 last night. The only goal of the match was contributed by Kompany right before half time.

The expectation on the match was high but it was a disappointing match. Both goalkeepers hardly being tested. Man Utd did not played to their usual attacking football and the ball was mostly held by Man City.

Man City deserved to win this match. With two matches remaining for both teams, meaning this season winner will be decided at the very last match.

The final two matches are favor to Man Utd. There are playing Swansea at home then followed by Sunderland away. Both opponents are mid-table team and are saved from relegation. There are nothing to play for except to finish their scheduled matches.

For Man City, there have to fight hard to win the remaining two matches. Their opponents are fighting for European Champion League place and also relegation survivor team.

Man City will be away against Newcastle and at home to QPR.

With two tough matches ahead. It will not be surprised to see Man Utd win the championship for their 20 league title.

Why KLCI Down Today

KLCI down 12 points to 1566 at around 4.30pm and was traded with thin volume.

Several reason behind the double digits fall. One of them could be the Bersih 3.0 to be held tomorrow.

The Euro financial crisis surfaced again. Even though Dow Jone up almost 1% or 113 points last night. It does not help world market from falling down.

May be the investors took this 'excuse' to sell-off or exit market ahead of May.

"Sell in May and Go Away"

The staging of Bersih 3.0 tomorrow and also the public holiday on next Tuesday are major influence to KLCI turning red today.

Hopefully Bersih 3.0 will be held in peaceful manner and with minimal trouble or no trouble at all.

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

KLSE is not looking for next few days.

It seem like markets are heading no way or going south soon, as more and more negative news appeared one after another.

Again all the bad news mainly come from Western part, like political issues in France and Holland, financial issues for PIIGS.

Couple with some bad earning from big firms in US.

Over local front, KLCI is still hanging around 1580-1610 level. KLSE will be saved as long as the election date is not announced yet.

For next few days, KLSE will see some pull-back or sell-off as Bersih 3.0 will be taking place over this weekend and also next Tuesday is a national holiday for Labor Day celebration.

Market is slowing down.....

Today is the first day of looking at KLCI after one week of holidaying in Taiwan but it was a disappointing sight, in red and losing 1600 level.

The market is slowly pulling back after months of heavily traded. At this moment the KLCI is down from 1600 level, i think it will stay at 1500 level for awhile. Unless there are any surprise news to push the market momemtum to higher level.

With western markets having bad news one after another, chances for KLCI to hit higher level in short term is not easy.

Hopefully our election theme is still hot.......
