Focus Point (0157) update – Bonus issue and newly launched hot selling FamilyMart confection [$$bill]

This is an update to my first Focus Point post (click here to view).


There is a saying that good things come in pairs. For me, it was two positive events that happened this evening.


Bonus issue – creating bullish market sentiment


The first was the announcement of the proposed 1 for 2 bonus issue. This was a pleasant surprise as it was just in July last year that a 1 for 3 bonus issue was proposed (and completed in Sep 2019).


As most would know, bonus issues usually create positive investor sentiment towards the stock.


Macarons – another hot selling goody


The second positive event for me today was the discovery that FamilyMart’s newly launched Macarons are made by Focus Point’s 100%-owned Multiple Reward Sdn Bhd and that the macarons sells out very quickly everyday.


I went to three FamilyMarts today morning to get my hands on the macarons. But to my surprise they were all sold out at three outlets.


When I asked a staff, I was told that the macarons have been selling out fast from the first day it was launched. I was advised by the staff to return around 6pm when the second batch of supply arrives.


After finally getting my hands on the macarons, my suspicion that it was made by Focus Point was confirmed. The label stated that it was manufactured by Multiple Reward Sdn Bhd.

Zooming in:



The macarons are priced at RM11.90 for a box of three. 

On FamilyMart’s social media, comments about the macarons are positive. Check out their instagram about the macarons at https://www.instagram.com/p/CIFA1keH_k_/

I’m glad to find out that the macarons have so quickly become another hot selling item.


A number of hot selling confections made by FocusP are also on the shelves of FamilyMart, such as Hanjuku Cheese, Cheese Pudding, Mochi Puff, Cream Puff, etc.

The future shines bright for both FocusP and FamilyMart.

Kudos again to dollardollarbill for second rapid on-the-ground research on Focus Point (0157). Will try the MACARON soon!



Previous post 




1. FocusP is the next F&B growth stock to keep an eye on. QL Resources, which owns FamilyMart, targets to open 300 outlets by 2022 and is eyeing for 1,000 outlets by 2025.

Just imagine the amount of sales FocusP would generate when FamilyMart has 1,000 outlets...



2. More new customers coming onboard with potentially another 300 outlet? Major cafe chain and convenience store chain in Singapore should have few hundreds stores. An article by The Edge last week said FocusP recently signed a supply agreement with a major café chain. FocusP is also in talks with a Japanese retailer and a convenience store chain in Singapore.


FocusP probably built CK2 knowing the capacity will be fully taken up by its new corporate customers.


CK1 + CK2 = RM72mil sales a year. Assuming 11% net profit margin, that’s about RM8mil net profit a year


3. An undercovered gem! Current market cap is only RM150mil and only covered by one broker. If we peg a 18x PE (justifiable given strong growth prospects from F&B), FocusP could potentially be trading at a market cap of RM360mil or RM1.64 per share (about 140% upside to the current share price of 68.5 sen).


FocusP just announced a stellar set of 3Q20 results with a net profit of RM5.35mil (annualized RM21.4mil).  


4Q20 should be even stronger because 4Q is seasonally the strongest quarter for FocusP.
