Western Digital (WD) is NOTION's client.

NOTION’S 3 BUSINESS SEGMENT UPDATES

    HDD
        Based on latest quarterly result released on Aug 24, HDD demand remained.
        On Nov 5, the Prime Minister’s Office said hard disk drive (HDD) manufacturer Western Digital Sdn Bhd will invest RM2.3 billion to upgrade its HDD facilities and boost its HDD output capacity in Malaysia. NOTION could potentially benefit. Investors may monitor this.
         
    Automotive
        Based on latest quarterly result released on Aug 24, automotive segment was sharply lower.
        In recent weeks, Proton and Toyota reported strong local car sales rebound in recent weeks. If car sales around the world rebounds as well, NOTION’s automotive segment may follow. Investors may monitor this.
         
    EMS
        Based on latest quarterly result released on Aug 24, demand was sharply lower too.
        That said, NOTION expects EMS orders to be strong from Q4 onwards.
        This could be due to the evergreen, growing needs of electronics products as technology advances.
        One of NOTION’s EMS clients is involved in homecare and floorcare appliances. Their products seem to sell well during the New Normal period. Double 11 may drive their sales. Investors may monitor this.
         
    Face Masks & Respirators
        Received FDA approval. NOVID is the brand.
        3-ply surgical masks and PP meltbrown fabric are in production. Profitable.
        NOTION plans to also expand 3 ply and meltblown capacity and include kids mask and N95 respirators.
        Based on latest quarterly result released on Aug 24, additional purchase of new factory to cater for this expansion is needed soon.
         
    Nitrile Glove
        NOTION will set up a total 9 glove production lines in phases in Klang, operation expected to start by stages in May and November 2021.
        On Nov 2, NOTION announced it has obtained a certificate from the FDA for Financial Year 2021 for the Polymer Patient Examination Glove.
        NOTION has also submitted the necessary documents to apply for the European Conformity (CE) marking certification for the nitrile gloves from the European Union and the approval is expected to be obtained soon.
        Both certifications are necessary for marketing the nitrile gloves in the USA and Europe, in which the Company’s nitrile gloves is currently supplied by Original Equipment Manufacturers, and brand building of the “NOVID” brand will be taking place before the Company’s gloves production starts in middle of 2021.
         

BUSINESS RISKS

    Besides venturing into healthcare, NOTION also has to take care of its existing businesses, namely HDD, Automotive and EMS.
    It is challenging to handle existing businesses and new ventures successfully.
    If new ventures do not work out as planned, or existing business is not well taken care of NOTION may be impacted financially.
    There is no exact profit guidance from the management.
    Sound business and risk managements are critical in ensure NOTION’s overall growth.
