Family Tussle

The news from the Edge Malaysia regarding multiple lawsuits between the family member of the late founder of WTK. According to the news report there are 34 ongoing cases. The lawsuits  is about the share in the family private investment arm W T K Realty Sdn Bhd which owned 13.80% of WTK (base on 2015 annual report).

è 34 ongoing lawsuits between the board of director.

After review the annual report 2015, I still believe that WTK is a good company to invest in. Hence I would maintained my recommendation as BUY to WTK.

As a value investor, I definitely had add some risk premium to WTK because of the multiple lawsuits. After adding the risk premium, WTK still shows a good company to buy. Even with the lawsuits which had go on for years, the WTK still able to grow hence I personally still has trust on the management of WTK and believe the Plantation sector will contribute ore profit in the near future when the oil palm trees are mature.
