KESM: riding on Rumour of Bonus issue and Share split? > 10 % gain in a week


KESM optimistic as auto industry gears up for driverless cars


BY CHEN SHAUA FUI
KUALA LUMPUR: KESM Indus- tries Bhd, which saw its net profit in the first quarter ended Oct 31, 2015 (1QFY16) almost tripling to RM8.07 million, expects the global automotive industry’s move to- wards increasing electronic con- tent in vehicles to drive its perfor- mance going forward, especially as the industry readies itself for the much vaunted driverless cars.
As such, it is positive on its financial performance in FY16, for which it has earmarked RM82 million — the same quantum as the year before — to expand the capacity of its integrated cir- cuits test segment to meet the requirements of its clients from the automotive semiconductor manufacturing industry.
KESM executive director Ken- neth Tan told reporters after the group’s annual general meeting yesterday that many carmakers have laid out their roadmaps to get their respective driverless car on the road in 10 to 15 years, and that KESM can leverage on that trend to grow its business further.
Tan expects the electrical con- tent in a driverless car 15 years from now will be double that of today’s conventional car.
However, he declined to give any forecast for the company’s financial performance in FY16, though he indicated that the group’s 1QFY16, “which turned in very decently” could serve as a guidance of sorts.
KESM provides specialised
electronic manufacturing activ- ities, primarily the provision of burn-in services — the process of stressing semiconductors to weed out potentially weak cir- cuits — with a focus on the au- tomotive market.
In 1QFY16, KESM’s net profit jumped 192.4% to RM8.07 million from RM2.76 million in 1QFY15, largely due to the reduction of expenses and a foreign curren- cy translation of RM4.44 million. Revenue rose slightly to RM70.18 million from RM69.16 million.
Meanwhile, Tan said the ca- pacity expansion the group is looking at this year will mainly come from the test area.
“There are test requirements that need us to continue investing in testing, in order to support our customer’s requirements. These are all customer-driven capacity requirements,” said Tan.
Meanwhile, KESM’s average capacity utilisation at its three factories — two in Malaysia and one in Tian Jin, China — is now about 80%. The Chinese market accounted for 22.33% of its total revenue in FY15, while the re- mainder came from Malaysia.
Tan said the group is open to any possibility of overseas ex- pansion, provided that there was demand from its customers such as those in China.
KESM dipped 10 sen or 1.72% to close at RM5.70 yesterday, val- uing it at RM249.50 million. Its share price has risen about 2.4 times from a year ago, when it was trading at RM2.34.

* What do you think of KESM? despite the market retreat, it goes against the wave to reach almost 10% gain compare to last week*
