Analysts positive on Supermax expansion plans

PETALING JAYA: Supermax Corp Bhd’s ambitious capacity expansion plans portend favourable growth prospects for the next two years, according to analysts.

The growth would be championed by the glovemaker’s Glove City and Supermax Business Park expansion, as well as a bigger nitrile glove capacity.

Analysts at Kenanga Investment Bank Bhd said they were “excited about Supermax’s growth prospects, believing that the group is on track to delivering mid-teens growth over the next two years.”

At its post-third-quarter results briefing, the group explained its expansion plans for Glove City and Supermax Business Park, new capacity’s net margin ranging between 9% and 11% due to expected intense competition, new capacity from its two new plants, Lot 6058 and Lot 6059 in Meru, Klang, to drive growth over the next two years, and minimal concerns about higher energy costs going forward.

“The expansion at both the Glove City and Supermax Business Park sites would cost a total of RM1.3bil over an estimated 11 years. The first phase of Glove City comprises six large plants with a total capacity of 24.6 billion pieces,” Kenanga analysts said in a client note.

Glove City is expected to commence in the first half of 2015 after the two new plants have been fully commissioned at an estimated capital expenditure of RM95mil.

RHB Research Institute is positive about the glovemaker’s growth potential as well, seeing that the new plants are on track to be fully commissioned by end-2014.

“Upon full completion, both plants would boost the company’s nitrile production capacity to 12.3 billion pieces from 6.9 billion pieces. This would shift its product mix to 53% nitrile compared with 39% currently,” the RHB Research team said.

The Kenanga analysts said Supermax was already facing a two-month oversold position, given the strong demand for nitrile gloves.

On the effect of the recent electricity tariff hike, Supermax said it would incur an additional cost of RM3.5mil, which it believes can be easily passed on to customers.

“Additionally, the group is also looking into renewable energy as an alternative source to electricity. We expect any forthcoming hikes in industrial gas prices to be mostly passed on to customers,” RHB added.

That said, a few analysts have maintained a more conservative view of the group, among them, Ian Wan from Alliance Research.

“While the expansion plan seems to be very ambitious and exciting, we take a prudent stance and maintain our volume growth projection of 10% per annum for financial years 2014 (FY14) and FY15, taking a cue from the FY13 nine-month volume growth of 7.8%,” he said.

Alliance believes that a 13 times target price-to-earnings ratio is fair, with moderate earnings growth of 10.8% and 14.4% for FY14 and FY15.

AmResearch concurred on the conservative view, trimming the group’s FY13 to FY15 earnings by 6% to 8%.

Analyst Cheryl Tan noted that would mean Supermax’s FY13 volumes would only be bolstered by capacity from the converted nitrile lines at Lot 6070 at about 1.4 billion pieces.

CIMB Research keeps Supermax an Outperform

KUALA LUMPUR: CIMB Equities Research keeps Supermax as an Outperform, with the catalysts of strong demand and widening margins.

The research house said on Monday its FY13-15 net profit forecasts are unchanged but target price is increased by 25% from RM3.02 to RM3.76.

The research house said it rolled over its valuation to CY15 and applied a higher 13.5 times price-to-earnings (P/E) from 13 times, still at 30% discount to Hartalega’s P/E that was recently raised to 19 times from 18.7 times (in line with the increase in its KLCI target P/E to 15.9 times from 15.6 times in September).

Supermax’s unit Maxwell Glove Manufacturing Bhd entered into a sale and purchase agreement with Dragonline Resources Sdn Bhd to acquire a 40.5ha parcel of freehold industrial land in Ulu Selangor for RM78.4mil.

The proposed acquisition will be funded via internally generated funds and bank borrowings. The proposed acquisition will enable Supermax to build an integrated glove manufacturing complex. The plan will use about 60% of the land’s buildable area for the immediate expansion of nitrile glove manufacturing capacity to meet growing global demand.

The remaining 40% of the land will be sold or leased to supporting industries.

CIMB Research said funding is not an issue as Supermax has low net gearing of 0.13 times and a high interest coverage ratio of 17 times.

It advised investor to accumulate Supermax. It added the glove maker was trading at an attractive 9.5 times CY14 P/E versus the 15 times sector average.
“We believe that Supermax is on track to achieving our FY13-15 net profit forecasts,” it said.

what happened to this stock? The company boss is disposing the mother share and warrant for past few months continuously. He disposed almost 20% of mother share and warrant from from 70+% to 50+% and 40+% to 20+%. Is he collecting money from the market? Is he a genuine businessman or another crocodile? I check the company past 5 year financial result, it looks great. Revenue, profit and EPS improving year by year. I invested a few recently. Now i am hesitating whether to invest more or run? Can anyone share your thought and view? thanks.

Clear Roadmap Ahead.

The glove maker consolidated a clear and convincing plan to achieve its 2012 earning guidance of 20% growth.

On the front trading end, strategies on:
- the new UK subsidiary, enhanced the global marketing intensity on top of current thin EU coverage (from Belgium) with favorable derivation GBP/USD gain
- well established selling price review system for shorter time lag cost reflection
- surgical segment focus -- higher and consistent demand

On the back manufacturing end, aggressive cost driven actions are clear on:
- capacity expansion plan (especially Nitrile exam gloves and surgical gloves)
- productivity improvement (facility refurbishment, convertible equipment upgrades)

Supermax had exhibited its determination to resume profit growth in 2012 to overcome the rising latex cost and weaken USD.
Interim results will show the effectiveness at 1H12 when the earning guidance will be review again.

Finally, the company forked out RM22.1million dividend pay (actual ratio 21% vs 2011 16%) on top of the 33% profit fall, was much appreciated.

Supermax aims for 20pc revenue growth

Supermax Corp Bhd, the world's second largest rubber gloves maker by volume, aims to grow its revenue and net profit by 20 per cent this year, helped by an expansion in capacity and a pick-up in demand, its co-founder said.

The Malaysian company, which ranks behind Top Glove Corp Bhd , is also set to take advantage of falling raw material prices to improve profit margins, Executive Chairman and Group Managing Director Stanley Thai told Reuters in an interview.

"We aim to grow our revenue and income by 20 per cent this year as we expand our capacity to tap into the better demand," Thai said late yesterday at the company's headquarters in Selangor just outside the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur.

Net profit fell 33 per cent to RM106.1 million (US$35 million) in the year to Dec 31 2011 from a year ago despite revenue rising five per cent to RM1.03 billion.

Fourth-quarter profit dropped 7.3 per cent and revenue rose 12.2 per cent. - Bernama

2012 begins with tougher challenge for glove-makers:

- Bulk‎ Latex‎ increased RM1/kg from Jan RM6.71/kg to Feb RM7.73/kg
- Rising Ringgit back to low 3.0x region to USD


Latex commodity sentiment remained volatile with:
- Impact of Thai Cabinet approval of loan plan to increase the price of locally-grown natural rubber to THB120 (RM11.84)/kg. Total of THB15bn soft laon plan at 0% interest.
- similar artificial support of rubber prices by the Indonesian and Malaysian governments
- sequential automotive growth in global (especially China) after temporarily suspended production for flooding crisis in Thailand.

Vietnam still prone to outbreaks of fatal bird flu

Vietnam continues to be susceptible to outbreaks of bird flu and the A/H5N1 virus remains deadly to those who contract it, an official said in Tien Phong (Vanguard) newspaper Friday.

Nguyen Tran Hien, chief of the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology, made the statement after Vietnam reported its first two bird flu fatalities this year.

The deaths came after nearly 20 months of no reported cases of humans with the A/H5N1 virus.


According to Hien, although the latest two victims were in the prime of life– an 18-year-old man in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang and a 26-year-old woman in Soc Trang Province, also in the Mekong Delta-- that does not mean that the virus has become stronger.

He said that because the virus is specific to poultry, it is impossible to say whether a particular group of people may be immune to it. An individual's chance of contracting bird flu depends on the person's level of exposure to the virus and genetic predispositions, he added.

In fact, while many people have been exposed to the virus, only a few have become ill, the official was quoted as saying.

However, mortality rates for the virus are quite high, possibly 100 percent, so people must be extremely cautious, he stressed.

When asked why there have been no human reports of human cases in northern Vietnam since May, 2010, while the southern provinces recorded a few cases, Hien said it was because southern provinces host more poultry. Moreover, the practice of letting ducks roam freely in the fields has increased the risk of humans contracting the virus.

Hien was also quoted as saying that the scientists from his agency are still assessing the effectiveness and safety of A/H5N1 vaccines. Vaccines are expected to be used extensively in the near future.

According to a World Bank report in October last year, Vietnam was among the countries most affected by A/H5N1, with 119 human cases confirmed as of March 2011, of which 59 were fatal.

Since 2003, bird flu outbreaks have killed and led to the forced culling of tens of millions of fowl in Vietnam.

The World Health Organization has ranked Vietnam the country second most affected by bird flu after Indonesia.

OSK Research retained its Overweight rating on the rubber gloves sector with its top pick being Supermax with a target price of RM2.75.

As at 4.55pm, the Supermax share price was unchanged at RM2.14. In its research report, OSK Research said the high rating on the company was premised on its attractive valuation and the fact that it operated in a recession-resilient industry.

It also said that there had been isolated cases of bird flu in Asia and that although it has not reached alarming levels, healthcare MNCs may prepare themselves by gradually stocking up rubber gloves to avoid buying them at "cut throat" price should there be a pandemic break out.

It said risks included further artificial support of rubber prices by the Indonesian and Malaysian governments, and a rising Ringgit.

It expects latex price to stay above RM7 in the shorter term. "This is due to the uplift in sentiment for the commodity created by the Thai Government," OSK Research said. Last week, the media reported that the Thai Cabinet had approved a plan to increase the price of locally-grown natural rubber to THB120 (RM11.84)/kg.

This is done through the Bank of Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives offering soft loans of THB5bn to local agricultural institutes and another THB10bn soft loan to the Rubber Estate Organization, both at zero per cent interest to help them purchase natural rubber from local rubber farmers.

The main reasons given for the intervention include the poor rubber prices arising from the global economic slowdown; the flooding crisis in Thailand which had temporarily suspended its production of automobiles and parts, and slower automotive growth in China.

China also slowed down its purchase of Thai natural rubber and instead had switched to the cheaper Indonesian rubber. "In our view, unless the Thai Government continues to support the price of rubber in the longer run, the price would still be ultimately decided by the forces of demand and supply," OSK Research said. -- Bernama

Hi Benny_S,
Basically you get nothing beside what i have mentioned in the previous post.
The good thing for bonus issue i can say is that it will push the price up before the bonus issue. So, you may consider sell in strenght to lock the profit.
But if you are confident on supermx for its future, then you may keep it for long term. smile

wub吉隆坡13日訊)速柏瑪(SUPERMX,7106,主板工業股)公佈紅股除權日後,股價大幅上漲,分析員認為擴大股本後,該股對投資者更具吸引力。

速柏瑪週四宣佈1送1紅股活動的除權日落在1月26日,完成後公司股本將擴大至6億8020萬令吉。上述消息帶動該股股價攀漲,成為十大上升股第3名。

該股週五以4.37令吉開跑,早盤多次觸及4.59令吉的全日最高水平。該股全天皆呈現上揚局勢,最終以4.55令吉掛收,上揚21仙或4.839%,並有535萬6600股易手。

僑豐投行分析員表示,即使在未進行配送紅股前,速柏瑪的股票流通量已經是同行最高,因此吸引基金經理和散戶投資者,相信這次送紅股將再度提升吸引力。

此外,分析員認為各家股票行對速柏瑪盈利預測,在未來仍有提升的空間。

目前,僑豐投行的盈利成長預測為32%,但有待2011財政年業績公佈後才可做出進一步預測。

分析員預測,速柏瑪2011財政年淨利可達到1億零650萬令吉,因該公司在首九個月盈利已取得7800萬令吉,末季僅需2850萬令吉就符合分析員的預測。

維持「買進」投資評級thumbup

在完成1送1紅股後,分析員會將速柏瑪的合理價格,從5.50令吉調整至2.75令吉,這是依據該股2012財政年每股盈利13倍計算所得。同時,分析員維持該股「買進」的投資評級。

速柏瑪仍是分析員的手套股的首選,原因包括:thumbup
一、分析員相信天然樹膠手套仍是2012年的主流,而速柏瑪有70%比重的產品為膠手套;
二、速柏瑪是僅次於頂級手套,全球第二大膠手套生產商,且本益比估值較頂級手套吸引;
三、該股是同行內最具流通量的股項。

速柏瑪針對媒體報導發文告表示,該公司相信2012財政年的銷售料按年增長20至30%。

這是該公司的內部目標,主要是因為測驗和手術手套的產能今年將增加27億件,估計將為速柏瑪帶來額外的22%銷售增長。

同時,膠乳價格放緩和美元走強將是營業額成長的支撐因素。

以上營業額預測不能理解為銷售預測,因為這還未經過外部審計師的過目。

Congra to all SUPERMX shareholder. More good news from below:

PETALING JAYA: Supermax Corp Bhd is expecting to post a profit after tax ranging from RM100mil to RM110mil for its financial year ended Dec 31, 2011 (FY11).

"We should be able to hit our earlier forecasted targets in 2011. Sales for 2011 is expected to be around RM1bil," said the glove manufacturer's executive chairman and group managing director Datuk Seri Stanley Thai after Supermax's EGM today.

Thai said 2011 was a challenging year, due to the increase in latex prices.

However, he is anticipating a better financial year in 2012, with earnings this year to be similar to 2010.

Thai said the company was aiming for sales growth of 20% to 30% in 2012, driven by its capacity expansion and expected higher demand for natural rubber latex gloves due to softening latex prices.

For its financial year ended Dec 31, 2010 (FY10), the glove manufacturer had posted a net profit of RM158.9mil on the back of revenue of RM977.3mil.

Thai said latex prices should continue to soften, from an average of RM6.30 per kg in January to the region of RM5 to RM6 per kg this year.

wubSupermax to meet FY2012 profit targetwub

KUALA LUMPUR:Rubber gloves manufacturer Supermax Corporation Bhd expects to meet its after-tax profit forecast of RM100 million
to RM110 million for the company’s financial year ended Dec 31 2011, says executive chairman Datuk Seri Stanley Thai.

Thai estimates revenue of about RM1 billion for the company’s financial year 2011.

He said the company would announce the performance for its financial year 2011 in the middle of February.

According to Thai, Supermax’s performance for its financial year 2011 was affected among others by the firm price of natural rubber and the economic uncertainty.

Supermax posted an after-tax profit of RM158.9 million on revenue of RM977.28 million for its financial year 2010.

Moving forward, he foresees a remarkable performance for the company's financial year 2012 due to the lower price of natural rubber.

Thai estimates an increase of between 20 and 30 per cent in the group's sales for the current financial year.

“Financial year 2012 will be the best year for Supermax. The financial performance will be similar to that of 2010. Our financial year 2012 will record the highest absolute value in the history of the rubber gloves industry,” he said at a press conference after the company’s extraordinary general meeting
(EGM) here today.

Thai said natural rubber gloves contributed 63 per cent and 60 per cent to the group’s profit for its financial years 2010 and 2011, respectively.

“For 2012, the contribution of natural rubber gloves to the group’s profit would be higher. Demand for natural rubber gloves is increasing,” he said.

He said apart from the lower natural rubber price, other factors
contributing to the expected better earnings would be sales growth and contribution from the company's distribution activities.

Supermax had incorporated a subsidiary in the United Kingdom, which will take care of the markets in England, Scotland and Ireland, he said.

He also said the company’s subsidiary in Germany had recorded high growth in business activities especially in the hospital market in the country.

Thai said Supermax currently produced 17.5 billion pieces of gloves and the number would increase gradually to 22 billion pieces by 2013 with the completion of its two new plants in Meru, Selangor and the replacement of all its production lines.

“There will be a gradual increase of 20 per cent a year in production capacity,” he added.

At the extraordinary general meeting today, shareholders of Supermaxapproved its proposed bonus issue of 340,077,440 new ordinary shares of RM0.50 each in the company to be credited as fully paid-up on the basis of one bonus share for every one existing Supermax share.

The shareholders also approved the proposed purchase by Supermax of up to 10 per cent of its issued and paid-up share capital. - Bernama

Better days for rubber glove sector

KUALA LUMPUR: The worst is over for the rubber gloves industry whether a H5N1 bird flu pandemic is declared or not, said OSK Research Sdn Bhd.

In a research note today, OSK said, should the virus continue to spread, it would be positive for the sector, just like in 2009 when the influenza A (H1N1) virus was declared a pandemic.

“During the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, all the share prices of rubber glove stocks rallied due to their consistent quarters of earnings improvement,” it said.

It said compared with 2009/2010, competition had lessened, which would augur well for the sector's earnings.

OSK said latex price, which made up 60%-70% of glove makers' total cost, had retraced to RM6.50 per kg from a high of RM11.

“The main reasons for the drop include a slowdown in the car sector as tyre used up about 70% of global natural rubber, less speculation on the commodities, including latex, and the recent Thai floods not affecting the country's plantations,” it said.

OSK said it remained positive on the sector for financial year 2012 even without a healthcare pandemic and would maintain its “overweight” call.

“We continue to see most rubber glove stocks as defensive stocks now since their share prices have retraced quite significantly from their highs towards the end of the H1N1 pandemic in the first half of 2010,” it said.

It said Supermax Corp Bhd remained its top sector pick. “Its earnings are more sustainable as the firm derives secondary income from its distribution business.” - Bernama

專家:深圳禽流感基因恐變種H5N1 陸港有大爆發風險

深圳患禽流感致死男子的感染源頭仍然未明!深圳市疾控中心與香港衛生防護中心化驗死者病毒樣本後,發現毒株屬基因變異的 2.3.2.1 亞系高致病性禽流感病毒,與香港早前染病野鳥所感染的相近,懷疑該名死者因接觸野鳥受到感染。香港微生物學專家直言現時藥物對禽流感仍然有效,但擔心這新病毒分支會在未來半年於香港及大陸成為主流,有爆發禽流感風險,市民不能掉以輕心。

《星島日報》報導,深圳感染禽流感的 39 歲男子於上周六不治,深圳市疾控中心與香港衛生防護中心專家就該名死者呼吸道樣本提取物,進行禽流感 H5N1 病毒基因組排序及生物信息學分析,結果發現樣本的甲型流感病毒 H5 基因屬 2.3.2.1 亞系高致病性禽流感病毒,與香港早前染病死雀所感染的禽流感病毒非常相近。

深圳疾控中心通過進化分析發現,此次毒株感染是由禽類直接傳染至人;又指是次病毒由中國南方於 2005 至 2006 年流行的 2.3.4 譜系禽流感病毒發生基因突變,但強調這是一個自然現象,病毒仍然是由禽類直接傳染予人,不能於人與人之間傳播。

深圳市疾控中心微生物檢驗科技術員吳春利表示,中心亦就該病毒進行耐藥性分析,結果病毒對金剛乙胺、曲金剛溴胺等金剛烷類藥物仍較為敏感,對特敏福的耐藥性仍於研究當中;又稱目前禽流感的傳播風險並無增加,呼籲群眾毋須恐慌。他又指目前死者的感染源頭是否來自野鳥,仍待相關部門確定。

香港大學感染及傳染病中心總監何屭}表示,病毒如何變種仍須詳細分析,雖然病毒對特敏福及樂感清藥物無抗藥性,但死亡率仍高達 50% ,認為情況嚴重,市民不能掉以輕心。今次大陸患者感染的病毒分支與國內過去的禽流感不同,何屭}稱若此病毒新分支於未來半年成為香港及大陸禽流感主流,就有機會出現爆發的風險。

他說:「新分支出現,要關注會否令在雞隻中使用的疫苗成效減低,這要密切留意,加快於實驗室多做分析,特別越南有不少農場接種疫苗都繼續感染此品種而造成爆發,這情況會否於香港及大陸出現這要密切關注。」他又呼籲市民於處理及進食雞、鴨時,要徹底洗淨及煮熟。

傳染病專科醫生勞永樂直言,不能單憑死者所感染病毒基因排序,而證實死者可能是由野鳥感染禽流感,認為這屬基本謬誤,質疑是內地當局轉移焦點。他又解釋,禽流感是由活家禽傳播,而非野鳥之間,大陸部門卻推卸責任至屬「天災」,而不去檢驗深圳家禽是否出現問題,認為港府應考慮擴闊禁大陸活家禽及家禽產品的範圍至全個廣東省。

(中國‧北京31日訊)中國南部城市深圳報告出現一起疑似禽流感病例,一名因患嚴重肺炎入院的男子對H5N1禽流感病毒呈陽性反應。

中國傳媒報導,這名任職巴士司機的39歲患者陳某週六中午1時33分宣告不治死亡。

【寵物情緣】西施犬永遠那麼有童真,喜歡玩毛線玩具,7、8歲大時都還咬著這些小玩具,想來是因為嘴短下顎寬,咬來順口吧。



120人接觸病人無異常

報導指出,該名病人的死因為病毒引發的多個器官衰竭。據瞭解,與其有過密切接觸的120位人士,目前均未有異常表現。

廣東省衛生當局透露,患者12月稍早出現發燒症狀,求醫後並無好轉送往醫院接受治療,其樣本週五檢測後對H5N1禽流感呈陽性反應。

深圳市疾控中心調查後,指該男子近一個月沒有外遊,也沒有直接接觸禽鳥,但他的住所鄰近濕地公園,未知是否跟他染上禽流感病毒有關。

香港提高警戒

香港衛生防護中心發言人表示,中心已提高警覺,並按事態發展繼續保持嚴謹的港口衛生措施。

上週,與深圳近在咫尺的香港,因為在死雞身上發現了禽流感病毒而拉響警報,當局銷毀了1萬7千隻活雞,並禁止販賣和從中國入口活雞。不過,病毒源頭至今未明。

暫無人傳人風險

深圳市疾控中心副主任馬漢武表示,人類受感染的途徑主要經由與雀鳥的接觸,經醫學觀察,暫無發現與患者有接觸的人士出現異常情況,但詳情仍有待確定。他重申,暫無人傳人風險,社區爆發機會亦不大。

另外,馬漢武相信疫苗仍然有效,事件與早前香港在家禽批發市場中發現感染禽流感死雞的事件無關。

中國最上一次通報禽流感死亡病例是在去年6月,死者是湖北省一名22歲的年輕孕婦,使到2003年禽流感在中國捲土重來,死亡病例增加至26。

世衛:可產生更強病毒
須嚴控H5N1研究

與此同時,世界衛生組織週五發表聲明,對最近進行的有關H5N1禽流感病毒的研究工作表示嚴重關切,這樣的研究可以產生出傳染性更強的病毒類型。

世衛組織說,這樣的研究帶有巨大的風險,必須得到嚴格控制。

荷蘭科學家本月稍早表示,他們已經在實驗室發現禽流感病毒在哺乳類動物間傳播的方式。

《科學》與《自然》期刊準備發表荷蘭一家實驗室製造出H5N1病毒的詳細研究報告。但是美國政府要求這兩份科學期刊不要透露科學家如何在實驗室製造出致命禽流感病毒H5N1的相關細節,擔心被人利用製造生物武器。

美國政府的一個委員會說,擔心研究報告可能被用來協助製造生物武器。

H5N1禽流感病毒通常被鳥類攜帶,但是也能夠被傳染給人類而且人類對此沒有免疫力。研究人員擔心這種病毒可能產生變異,形成一種能夠廣泛傳播的病毒,導致大批人類死亡。
