Pentamaster has released 2 sets of Q1 2018 Quarterly Report on 22 May 2018. One set for PCB & one set for PIL.

Both set of account has many similarity simply because 63.1% of PIL is owned by PCB. By comparing 2 set of results, i tried to do an earning FORECAST for full year 2018. At the same time trying to clear the quastion of RM 7.146 mil listing expenses is actually prepaid by PCB only. (Please note that an earning forecast is near similar to weather forecast. It will never be 100% accurate. It certan cases, the accuracy is Zero)

Interpretation:

1) based on above quarters report, we can see that "Admin Expenses" after excluding Listing Expenses, Forex Loss & One off expenses, the percentage is around 6.7% (average 6 quarters). It is the Listing exercise that mess up the admin expenses. Since the listing activity is completed, i expect admin expenses should back to normal.

2) Foreign currency hedging were conducted perfectly all the while except for Q4 2017. Reason can be found in Q4 quarter report.

3) Listing fee for PIL (RM1.647 mil) and PCB (RM7.146 mil) has been reported separately in Q1 2018. This is the reason causing the Admin Expenses amount reported differently in PCB (RM 18.708 mil) and PIL (RM 12.553 mil) quarter report. Therefore, the listing fee showed in PCB report amounted to RM 7.146 is supposed to be wholly paid by PCB.

4) Total Listing expenses paid so far is RM 14 mil (instead of RM 15 mil). Question remain if such amount paid by PCB will eventually be claimed back from PIL. Any claim should add back to future PCB's net profit. Refer HERE.

5) Adding back the listing fee into PCB's portion of earning (owner of the company (63.1%), Profit will be around RM 14 mil for Q1 2018 for PCB only.

6) PCB order book stood at RM 315 mil as of end of Q1 2018 and all machines supposed to be delivered to end customer in coming 3 to 4 quarters.

7) The Most Optimistic case:

FY 2018 total Revenue RM 400 mil; @ 19% net margin (average 6 quarters) = RM 76 mil net profit for PCB & PIL. Apply bluntly 63.1% = RM 48 mil @ EPS 15 sen per share for PCB only

PCB historical PE is at the normal range of (20 to 30) from Aug 2017 to May 2018. Refer below:





By applying BLUNTLY PE 25,

TP for penta: 25 PER x 15 sen = RM 3.75 per share, representing upside potential of 60% from today closing price of RM 2.33

Should Penta Order Book continue to increase as per my article here, i shall review this TP again.



Cheers,

Note: This is the most optimistic case. If you buy blindly without own research, you most likely ended up in shark's stomach. Good Luck!
