Company Profile

FIMACOR consists of three main business divisions as follows:
  1. Printing and Trading of Security Document – about 60% of the profit before tax (31 March 2015 Quarterly Report)
  2. Oil Palm Division – about 40% of profit before tax (31 March 2015 Quarterly Report)
  3. Property Division - <1% of profit before tax (31 March 2015 Quarterly Report)


1) Printing and Trading of Security Document

This is the main division of the business as it contributes 60% of the profit before tax. This division manufacturing and trading security document to the government and private company such as Malaysia paper money, stamps, travel documents and etc. FIMACORP owned 100% of Percetakan Keselamatan Nasional Sdn Bhd (“PKN”) which is one of the largest domestic security printers in Malaysia.

In 2002, FIMACOR had sign a joint venture with Giesecke & Devrient GmbH, to form Giesecke & Devrient Malaysia Sdn Bhd which FIMACOR owned 20% of the shares. Giesecke & Devrient Malaysia Sdn Bhd is Malaysia’s only banknote printing plant in Shah Alam.

2) Oil Palm Division

This division contributed 40% of the company’s revenue. FIMACOR own of oil palm estates in Malaysia and Indonesia. From FIMACOR officialwebpage, we get to know that 6,507.33 hectare (about 90%) of oil palm plantation is in Indonesia while the remaining 785.39 hectare is in Malaysia.

On 17th October 2014, FIMACOR had complete acquired Gabungan Warisan Sdn Bhd hence has increase the oil palm plantation holding by 249.82 hectares.

On 17th March 2015, FIMACOR enter an SPA with LNP which if success its will owned 89% of Next Oasis and the remaining is owned by LNP with a called option to LNP to buy 9% of Next Oasis shares from FCBPH (100% subsidiary of FIMACOR).

Next Oasis currently is on SPA to purchased two company for MWE (3921) which owed two pieces of oil plantation land total of 404.68 hectares. Next Oasis had completed the SPA with MWE on 18 March 2015 with the cost of RM 5,100,000. MWE does not issue any audited financial report for 2015 hence from annual report 2013 of MWE the biological asset worth RM 8,568,238 and amortise at RM 3,531,038. If we assume the asset amortise at the same rate for 2014 hence the book value of the biological asset is estimated to be RM 5,037,200. Hence Next Oasis pay RM 5,100,000 almost the same price with the book value of the biological asset. These still does not include of the land which FIMACOR stated in the reply to Bursa Query on 20th March 2015 it is worth RM 10,000,000.00
FIMACOR had already paid RM 4,560,025.75 advance payment to MWE to close the SPA between Next Oasis and MWE.

3) Property Division

This division manage the maintenances and cleaning of the buildings. Most of the buildings that this division manage are FIMACOR’s building. Not much attention will be on this division since it only contributed less than 1% of the revenue.

PROS:

  • Owned 100% of Percetakan Keselamatan Nasional Sdn Bhd (“PKN”) which is one of the largest domestic security printers in Malaysia
  • FIMACOR owned 20% of Giesecke &Devrient Malaysia Sdn Bhd which is Malaysia’s only currency printing plant in Shah Alam.
  • Expended the palm oil plantation in Malaysia
CONS:

  • Almost 60% of their revenue depending on one large customer which is Malaysia Government.
  • Strengthen of US dollar had lower the price of CPO which might affect the revenue of FIMACOR which 40% of revenue depend of oil plantation.
  • Since 90% of plantation is from Indonesia, the Indonesia Rupiah to Malaysia Ringgit conversion rate is important. The Indonesia Rupiah to Ringgit Malaysia conversion rate is still almost at the 10 year lowest point.
  • SPA on 17th May 2015 with LNP to acquired 89% of Next Oasis which owed two oil palm plantation previously from MWE might consists of uncertain matters. As a value investor, we shall keep away from the uncertainty and only invest with company that we are certain of.
  • FIMACOR had pay advance payment RM 4,560,025.75 to MWE to settle the SPA between Next Oasis and MWE.

Share Split and Bonus Issues

On 10th October 2014 FIMACOR had perform a 2:1 share split and issue a bonus of 1:2 after the share split. These had increase the volatility of the stock price and reduce the net asset per share value to 1/3 time.

PROS:

  • Increase volatility of the share. The share price drop into half after the split which attract smaller investor to buy the share.
CONS:

  • Bonus issue of stock RM 0.50 issued for 2 numbers of shares RM 0.50 which equivalent of each shareholder will receive 50% dividends before the split. This may reduce the price of the share as some shareholder are willing to sell their share below the par value to cash in.

Management & Ownership

The management team are mostly from accounting background which has no idea on oil palm plantation. They might not have experience in dealing with oil palm plantation which FIMACOR is expending in recent year. There even has a doctor sitting on the board which is not relevant to FIMACOR business.

However, some of the directors were ex civil servant, these gives an advantage to the company because their largest client is Government of Malaysia.

Base of 2014 annual report, Fima Metal Box Holdings Sdn Bhd is the largest shareholder having 59.55% of the shares. The other minor shareholder will not have the voice in these company.

PROS:

  • Some of the directors were ex civil servant, these gives an advantage to the company business where the largest clients is Government of Malaysia.
CONS:

  • The management does not have experience in the business of FIMACOR.
  • Almost 60% of FIMACOR is owned by Fima Metal Holdings Sdn Bhd.
