Dear all,
I wish I have an answer to Philip’ sharp mind and acid tongue critical of INSAS: Please explain clearly why cash rich company selling warrants and doing cash call?
Very simple: You own INSAS for 3 years you should be able to explain very clearly what is happening. Why undervalue company with hundreds of millions of cash is taking advantage of minority shareholders instead of helping them?
I will wait until the RI circular make available to shareholders and ask the Board the necessary of cash call RI:
Meanwhile many investors had give up on INSAS and label INSAS as value trap for beginner. I can understand their feeling and do not wish to dispute their claim.
I first bought 12,000 INSAS shares at RM 0.843 on 03/02/2017 and since then besides trading some had topped up INSAS and now my hlebroking portfolio inquiry show:
I had penned below 2 blogs on INSAS:

Insas: When the investor is not properly informed - felicity 

In several of my earlier articles, I have mentioned of companies which holds their businesses in form of investments should be at the very least be measured using its book value.

In Buffett's Letter to Shareholder in 2011 Warren shared his thought on share repurchases, and book value valuation.
“We have no way to pinpoint intrinsic value. But we do have a useful, though considerably understated, proxy for it: per-share book value. This yardstick is meaningless at most companies. At Berkshire, however, book value very roughly tracks business values. That’s because the amount by which Berkshire’s intrinsic value exceeds book value does not swing wildly from year to year, though it increases in most years. Over time, the divergence will likely become ever more substantial in absolute terms, remaining reasonably steady, however, on a percentage basis as both the numerator and denominator of the business-value/book-value equation increase.”
My question should we took the standard definition of intrinsic value wholeheartedly: Intrinsic value is the Present value of the investment of all the expected cash flow over the lifetime discounted at the appropriate discount rate. Or question the definition why equity part of asset or at least the current assets minus total liabilities should be added to this intrinsic value?
In this case the intrinsic value of INSAS is Liquid assets – total liabilities + (CF1/ (1+d)^1) + (CF2/(1+d)^2) + ----- +(CFn/(1+d)^n)
  • Where:
  • CF = Cash Flow in the Period
  • d = Discount rate
  • n = The period number
  • This Intrinsic value is actually a Discounted Cash Flow (DCF)
  • Example of intrinsic value of INSAS is then the Sum of DCF expected cash flow from varies business streams.
  • For INSAS assets rich case, it is my opinion that the liquid assets minus total liabilities should be added to this intrinsic value.
What are the liquid assets of INSAS: Refer latest quarterly report:

As of expected cash flow from varies business streams:
