Golden Agro Growers Scheme


















Just when we see the news of Country Heights Grower Scheme (CHGS) proposing for a voluntary termination of the investment scheme, Golden Agro Plantation Sdn. Bhd. is coming up with a very similar scheme to this CHGS, let us see what we have on the news article for Golden Agro Growers Scheme.

KUALA LUMPUR: Golden Agro Plantation Sdn Bhd has allocated 70% of the grower plots, or 29,240 plots, to the public to participate in its Golden Agro Growers Scheme.
Its chief executive officer, Datuk Allan Lim Kim Huat, said the management would retain 30% of the plots in the plantation in Mukah, Sabah.
"Each plot is equivalent to 1/4 acre and will be offered at RM8,000 each. "The scheme offers a guaranteed 7% returns for the first five years (projected at different palm oil prices).
"Currently, the price for the commodity is around RM2,300 a tonne," he said at the soft launch of the scheme here on Tuesday.
Lim said one ha of oil palm could produce four to 5.5 tonnes of crude palm oil (CPO) annually, which made it five to 10 times more efficient than any other commercially-known oil crop on a per ha basis.
He said Malaysia accounted for 39% of the total CPO production and 44% of total world exports.
"If we take into account all other oils and fats produced in the country, Malaysia accounts for 12% and 27% of the world's total production and exports of oils and fat respectively.
"Therefore, as one of the largest producers and exporters of palm oil products worldwide, Malaysia has a very important role to play in fulfilling the rapidly-expanding global demand for oils and fats," he said.
He said the Companies Commission of Malaysia has approved the scheme.
Subject to availability of the plots, there was no limit to the number of plots each investor could subscribe to.
"The plots are freely transferable after two years," he said.
Lim said 100% of the audited net profit would be distributed from year six onwards until the maturity of the plantation in 20 years.
The share of net proceeds from the sale of plantation land then would be distributed upon maturity, he said.
On the choice of the land in Mukah, he said, there was no need for investors to worry as the land was safe and free from the wild animals. - Bernama












And earlier on, let us review a news article regarding for the CHGS.

PETALING JAYA: Disgruntled investors of Country Heights Grower Scheme (CHGS) are rallying together to demand for the adjournment of a general meeting to be held early next month on the eve of Chinese New Year in relation to the proposed voluntary termination of the investment scheme.

Taking their concern to the social media space, this group of disgruntled investors have called for urgent meetings among themselves in several locations nationwide, including Penang, Ipoh and Petaling Jaya, to discuss their course of action against the proposed voluntary termination of the investment scheme. A Facebook page had also been created under the name “CHGS Group” in the hope of getting more disgruntled investors to voice their opinion.

“Our intent is firstly to gather enough proxy support to call for the adjournment of the general meeting,” Michael Khor told StarBiz over the telephone.

“To get the adjournment, we need 50% of the vote We hope investors can give their proxies because we feel that the date of the meeting is purposely timed to push through the resolution to terminate this pioneer scheme,” he added.

Khor is from Ipoh. He has been an investor of CHGS since early 2008.

To recap, Plentiful Gold-Class Bhd, the management company of CHGS, last week issued a circular notifying investors of a plan to terminate the grower scheme, and a general meeting to be held on Feb 8 in relation to the proposal.

Plentiful Gold-Class is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bee Garden Holdings Sdn Bhd, a company in which Puan Sri Tan Bee Hong, wife of Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew, is a shareholder. (Lee is the founder of property development and management company Country Heights Holdings Bhd. He also sits on the board of Plentiful Gold-Class.)

According to the circular, the rationale for the proposed voluntary termination is that the scheme had encountered various challenges that had severely affected the development and operation of the plantation. These included unpredictable weather conditions, incursions of wild elephants into the plantation, poor soil fertility, shortage of key personnel and manual workers, and uncompromising terrain.

CHGS was established in March 2007 with a supposed maturity period of 23 years. The scheme involved selling plots of oil palm to retail investors. It guaranteed a return of 8% for the first three years (or planting phase). Subsequent return for the remaining 20 years would depend on the market price of crude palm oil (CPO). The scheme also claimed to provide capital appreciation to investors at the end of the maturity period.

Under the proposed voluntary termination of CHGS, the board of Plentiful Gold-Class had said it would refund in full the grower's fee to the respective grower or investor in cash over a period of two years. The first tranche of refund involved 10% of the grower's fee within 30 days upon approval of the proposed voluntary termination of CHGS, while the remainder 90% would be paid out within a period of two years from the date of approval.

According to Khor, disgruntled investors are not only unhappy with timing of the general meeting, but they are also dissatisfied with the terms of refund. “The terms of repayment are very unfavourable,” Khor said, pointing to the “long” period of repayment for the remaining 90% of grower's fees to investors.

“We prefer an adjournment (of the general meeting) for better terms to be given or negotiated,” Khor added.

Meanwhile, the proposed voluntary termination of CHGS had also caught the attention of the Minority Shareholder Watchdog Group (MSWG). In her commentary last week, MSWG chief executive officer Rita Benoy Bushon asked: “Why the rush to terminate when the prevailing average CPO price is still hovering around RM2,300 per tonne, which is above the minimum RM800 per metric tonne?”

Rita also questioned the timing of the general meeting, saying: “What was the reason for fixing the general meeting date a day before the Chinese New Year's celebration, given the expected long holiday?”

Rita also pointed out that there was doubt over the recoverability of the grower's fee, considering the fact that there was a shortfall between grower's fee payable of RM215mil (contributed by the subscribers) and the underlying value of the land at RM129mil as highlighted by independent adviser Ferrier Hodgson.















Generally the concept of the scheme is good in my very personal view, and for CHGS case, the investors already have their interest paid for the past few years and they will get their full refund for their initial investment capital (as my understanding) within 2 years.

Investor technically consider not incur losses, but since the full refund is taking 2 years time, any balance which is not fully paid to the investors, will they be interest to be paid for the investors, as if the investors get the refund earlier enough, they might have put their capital into the instrument that have a return.

Tune Ins Holdings Berhad IPO


















When all the rumour come out from the street that Malaysia Parliment may dissolve on the 22nd February 2013, Tune Insurance is launching its IPO prospectus on 23th January 2013 and setting their listing date on the 22nd February 2013.

Just pick some of the important fact from StarBiz for a glance of reference.


KUALA LUMPUR: Tune Ins Holdings Bhd plans to raise RM325mil from its listing exercise which involves 210.22 million shares at an indicative retail offer price of RM1.55 a share.
According to its prospectus released on Wednesday, it said the IPO would include a public issue of up to 143.37 million new shares and an offer for sale of up to 66.85 million existing shares.
Tune Ins said the institutional offering comprised of 102.028 million shares and up to 66.85 million offer shares, which would be issued to Malaysian institutional investors and foreign investors and also selected investors. The institutional price would be determined by bookbuilding.
Tune Ins said the retail offering comprised of 41.34 million public shares to Malaysian citizens, companies, cooperatives, societies and institutions and eligible directors and staff at the retail price of RM1.55.
Of the RM222.20mil gross proceeds from the offer for sale and over-allotment option, Tune Ins will use RM133mil or 59.86% to repay borrowings, RM27.2mil as working capital, RM50mil for strategic investments and RM12mil for listing expenses.
In terms of dividends, it targeted a payout ratio of not less that 40% of its consolidated profit in each FY beginning Jan 1, 2013.


KUALA LUMPUR: True to the promise of the three listings for 2013 fromTan Sri Tony Fernandes' Tune Group, the prospectus of Tune Ins Holdings Bhd has been issued, and its listing date slated for Feb 22.
A total of 210 million shares are being issued at an indicative price of RM1.55 per share, with 41.3 million shares being made available to retail shareholders and a further 168.88 million for the institutional portion.
The institutional portion is being sold at a price range from RM1.20 to RM1.55 and post the book-building exercise, a final price will be set, which will then determine the final retail price of Tune Ins stock.
Of all the shares being issued, 143.37 million are new shares while a further 66.85 million are existing shares being issued by parent companyTune Money Sdn Bhd. This will dilute Tune Money's holding in Tune Ins from 80% to 55.85% post IPO. At the indicative price of RM1.55, Tune Money shareholders should pocket RM103.62mil. Using the RM1.55 price, the market capitalisation of Tune Ins would be about RM1.2bil.
Valuation-wise, the RM1.20 price is at 13 times financial year 2013 earnings, while at RM1.55 per share, the price earnings multiple is at 16 times 2013 earnings, bankers familiar with such listings told StarBiz.

Party A was introduced by a mutual contact.  Due to the fact the MOU is non binding and subject to the outcome of the due diligence, the Board of Directors has yet to deliberate in depth on the nature and viability of the project.  The MOU was signed to formalize the intention of both parties to further explore the possibilities of working together in the project.
3.         DUE DILIGENCE ON PARTY A AND THE PROJECT
Patimas wishes to highlight that at this MOU stage, it is only at a preliminary negotiation stage and that it is still in a state of flux and no specific terms and conditions have been agreed to yet.
No decision has been made on whether or not to proceed further pending due diligence to be carried out by both parties on each other. Depending on the outcome of the due diligence, the above proposal may or may not materialize.
No due diligence was carried out on Party A prior to signing of the MOU, however, a due diligence on Party A is currently being carried out.
4.         KNOW HOW IN THE PROJECT
In the event the project is carried out, Patimas may have to engage other professionals, advisers and consultants for the project.
5.         FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS ARISING FROM THE MOU
We reiterate that, as the MOU is only at a preliminary negotiation stage, it is still in a state of flux and no specific terms and conditions have been agreed upon by both parties.
As at the date of this announcement, Patimas does not have the financial capacity to fulfill its financial obligations that may arise from the project.
Shareholders and potential investors should carefully consider the risks set out above before investing in the Company shares and note the current status of Patimas as a PN17 company.
