mad Can-One and parties plan to privatise or merge with Kian Joo

PETALING JAYA: Can-One Bhd's major shareholder along with friendly parties are considering a privatisation or merger exercise with Kian Joo Can Factory Bhd, reliable sources said.

The move is said to be related to Can-One's acquisition of a 32.9% stake in Kian Joo, which should be completed today, after a lengthy court battle.

The source also said that Can-One was getting funding for the Kian Joo shares from Kuwait Finance House (KFH) while MIMB Investment Bank was handling the crossing of the shares.

“With the 32.9% stake in Kian Joo, Can-One will be able to equity-account Kian Joo's earnings. Hence, the major shareholder (of Can-One) is probably looking to take advantage of the current cheap valuation (of Can-One),” said the banking source.

Last week, the Federal Court ruled in favour of the liquidators of Kian Joo Holdings Sdn Bhd (KJH) to proceed with the sale of 146.13 million Kian Joo shares held by KJH to Can-One for RM241.12mil, or RM1.65 per share. KJH is the vehicle of Kian Joo's founding See family.

It isn't clear how Can-One's major shareholder would raise funds for the privatisation exercise.


As for the option of a merger exercise, the advisers to Can-One's major shareholders are currently crunching the numbers to come up with a fair valuation and share-exchange ratio of both companies.

Currently, the largest shareholder of Can-One is its managing director Yeoh Jin Hoe, who owns a 29.63% stake, while the second largest shareholder is Koperasi Permodalan Felda Bhd with a 13.54%.

For the nine months to Sept 30, 2011, Can-One's net profit was up 85.74% to RM20.01mil on the back of a 46.33% increase in revenue to RM463.69mil.

Over the same period, Kian Joo's net profit was up 13.81% to RM89.75mil on the back of a 11.22% increase in revenue to RM793.54mil.

To recap, Can-One won the tender to purchase the 32% stake in 2009. However, in the last two years it was in dispute with the See family, which owns substantial stakes in Kian Joo, which tried to stop the former from taking control of the company.


Based on their closing prices, Kian Joo's market capitalisation stands at RM941.64mil compared with Can-One's RM277.37mil.

Can-One shares have been on a steady uptrend. Last week alone it had risen close to 60 sen.

It continued to be on the gainers' list yesterday, rising 23 sen to close at RM1.82 on volume of 11.82 million shares. Meanwhile, Kian Joo was down eight sen to RM2.12 on volume of 2.5 million shares.

My wish, though pretty unlikely, is that Can One unable to secure loan to buy that 33% KJCF stock from KPMG.

But then even if both merge, it wouldn't be as bad a scenario. Combining, the new entity will own the whole packaging industry in Malaysia! Think about pricing power of the new entity. By then, get ready for your food expenses to increase sweat

Perhaps people start thinking positive about the merging news? Both of them will become the largest entity in packaging industry if the merging take place.

But i think CANONE is a safer bet now as it is cheaper. smile
