Table 1


Smart devise for automated and mobile devices are the main stream of income that booth the revenue of PENTA into 28% of CAGR in five years. Observe from table 1, in FY16, revenue is mainly contributed from Malaysia, followed by Singapore and China
Table 2

We could obviously see from table 2, more than 60% of the business is from automated equipment, which is the i-ARMS business. While offering solution system is to add value to the customers in order to deliver strong growth to the company. Without automated equipments, manufacturing solution systems don’t come. Therefore the main core business is still falling into the equipments itself.

Income Statement Analysis
Table 3


Free cash flow (FCF) of PENTA is getting more and more, but nothing to surprise because positive FCF is getting normal nowadays. Cash flow from operation of PENTA was in negative figure in FY2012. Slowly then, the sales started to pick up and creating positive cash flow from the operation, it is improving in an overall view. In the annual report stated, PENTA is focusing on R&D to enable them to achieve a diverse range of manufacturing industries. And we can clearly see the CAPEX is getting more and more, meaning the company is really doing its expansion.

Share Price VS NAV VS NTA
Table 4
Few years back PENTA was always trading below NAV and NTA, after FY2014 it started to drive up and traded above NAV and NTA. Reason being is obviously because of the future prospect and the potential growth that the investors noticed. For a growing company like PENTA, margin of safety is subjective to every investor. Thus, NAV and NTA only serve as a benchmark where they do not derive the intrinsic value of PENTA.

PE Forecast
Table 5
It was a loss making year during FY2012, thus PE ratio does not have any reference value. Averagely we can get a PE or 9-10x. However, as at 3rd of August 2017, the price and PE ratio of PENTA have gone up to RM4.26 and 20.10x respectively due to optimism in future prospect of PENTA. To bring down PE ratio back to 10x while maintaining the price at RM4.26, PENTA must perform extraordinary to boost up earnings per shares (EPS). As a simple calculation, PENTA should have EPS of 42.6sen to bring PE ratio back to 10 and maintaining at RM4.26. While it is difficult for a growing company to use PE ratio in predicting its value because we are using current earnings ability and not future earnings ability to forecast. Therefore, I, as an analyst do not take PE ratio into consideration.

Margin Comparison
Table 6
Here is another reason why share price of PENTA keep on heading to the north. Gross profit margin has been rising over the years. The management is really doing their job well. Instead of slashing product price to remain competitive, they took prompt action to place focus in offering solutions and products to add value. Profit after tax margin is also growing over the years, which means the expenses are all well controlled.

Table 7
ROE of PENTA has been growing healthy along the way. If we take a closer look, we could see the sub ratios that drive ROE up are the constantly growing net profit margin as well as the total asset turnover.  It literally means PENTA is doing well in controlling expenses and better utilization is assets to generate more revenue. PENTA is along the way financing its total asset by using bigger portion of equity. That could mean PENTA is changing its capital structure towards a more conservative approach in order to sustain when the economic is bad.

Technical Analysis 
Table 8
PENTA is having a long term uptrend for more than one year. A closer look from March to August 2017,there is a trend support and resistant red line as presented in the Table 3 above. But we can notice from the red circles above, there was a hugh selldown with high volume and caused RSI to be oversold.
The general idea is that when suport line is broken and we shall anticipate there is a downtrend coming. However, few days later PENTA went up again and made a historical high. If you sell PENTA when it breaks support line, you could have missed a 20% return from PENTA. 
Comparing the green circle and red circle in RSI,  red circle is more heavily oversold than RSI in green circle but the price in red circle never drop below the price in green circle. Therefore we could justify the breaking in support line is a false signal to trap people.

Conclusion
PENTA is having a good bisuness model with good management team and they are considering listing its automated solution business on main board in Hong Kong to fund future growth. According to the management, they expect the sales for the first half of 2017 to exceed the figure last year. In a longer term, PENTA should perform better than now.
