IPO highlights
An electrical and mechanical expert

Kejuruteraan Asastera (KA) has close to 20 years of experience in the electrical


and mechanical engineering services industry. It is registered with the Energy
Commission Malaysia as a Class A electrical contractor, which allows the group to
tender for electrical projects exceeding MYR1m. It is also registered with the
CIDB as a Grade G7 license holder, allowing the group to tender for electrical
projects with unlimited value.

Electrical engineering services is KAs core business activity, accounting for 87.2%
of 5M17 revenue (FY16: 92.9%). It involves the installation, testing and
commissioning of electrical systems which comprise:

Electrical services: Electrical distribution system comprises networks of


electrical cables and equipment for electricity supply and distribution
systems, lighting systems, and earthing and lightning systems in a building or
site. It also involves the installation of high voltage transformers,
switchgears, low voltage systems as well as main switchboards.

FTTH services: Involves communications and information technology


networks including those related to fibre optic cabling for data and voice
communication.

ELV services: Including services such as access control, car park system and
gate barrier, CCTV, SMATV, security and alarm system, sound system, public
address and intercommunication systems.

The company also provides mechanical engineering services which involve the
installation, testing and commissioning of air-conditioning and mechanical
ventilation systems. This could be awarded as part of the electrical engineering
services contracts or on a standalone basis.

To complement the electrical and mechanical engineering services, KA also sells


materials that are used in its projects to the subcontractors. These materials
include cables, switches, trunking, pipes and electrical accessories.

Target markets

KA mainly services the main contractors, project owners and property developers
in Malaysia, either via direct or indirect invitations. The group is not dependent
on any single customer though some of its clients contributed >10% of its revenue
over the past three years. These customers may vary from year to year,
depending on projects and purchase orders.

Over the past three years, KA has been appointed as a nominated subcontractor
for approximately 69.8% of the total number of projects secured. Unlike a normal
subcontractor, a nominated subcontractor is appointed by the project owner,
and the main contractor is obliged to appoint the company as a subcontractor for
the services to be provided. With this status, KA will be able to have direct
negotiations with the project owner on the terms of the subcontract and the
process is less competitive compared to a public tender.

Outlook & prospects


Industry growing at 14.5% CAGR

According to the Independent Market Research Report (IMRR) by Smith Zander


International, mechanical and electrical engineering services in Malaysia,
measured in terms of total value of awarded projects, increased from MYR3.5b in
2006 to MYR62.5b in 2016, registering a CAGR of 33.4%. It also projects the
mechanical and electrical engineering services industry to further grow to
MYR93.8b in 2019, at a CAGR of 14.5%, driven mainly by private investments and
government policies to spur growth in the construction sector and socio-
economic development.

Plenty of room to grow

Market share. KA has a market share of just 1.7% in 2016, based on the total
value of awarded electrical engineering services projects versus the total value
of electrical projects awarded in the construction sector. Therefore, there are
abundant opportunities for the group to tap into. Management intends to tender
for more projects post listing, particularly for large scale residential, commercial
and mixed-development projects.

A deeper pocket. Via this listing exercise, KA has earmarked MYR7.5m for tender
bonds/performance bonds to bid for jobs. Without funding, securing large
contracts is a challenge. A performance bond (in the form of bank guarantees),
which is about 5% of the total contract sum award, is required by customers until
after the issuance of the Certificate of Practical Completion. As a private
company, KAs expansion plan has in the past, been limited by its ability to
secure adequate credit facilities for bank guarantees. Based on our back-of-the-
envelope calculation, the MYR7.5m additional funds will enable the group to
bid/undertake jobs up to MYR150m, equivalent to 1.6x its FY16 revenue.

Targeting affordable housing projects. One of the segments which KA intends to


expand into is the affordable housing segment. The Governments efforts to
launch and promote affordable housing programmes nationwide is expected to
bode well for the mechanical and electrical engineering services industry, which
in turn, could benefit KA. At present, KA is keen to explore opportunities in
programmes such as Rumah Mesra Rakyat 1Malaysia (RMR1M), Program
Perumahan Rakyat (PPR), Perumahan Rakyat 1Malaysia (PR1MA), 1Malaysia Civil
Servants Housing (PPA1M) as well as programmes for second-generation FELDA
and FELCRA settlers.

Kejuruteraan Asastera Berhad

Going south. Another expansion plan is to grow more aggressively into the
Southern region of Malaysia. Historically, KA has focused on projects in the
Central region, particularly in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. Approximately 98.3%
of its FY16 revenue was derived from the Central region.

To grow mechanical engineering services. KAs intention is to focus on


providing air conditioning and mechanical ventilation services as an added
service. This unit will only start to contribute in FY17. As at 5M17, this segment
accounted for only 0.8% of the groups revenue. Going forward, KA will tag along
its electrical engineering services with the main contractors and project owners
by leveraging existing business relationships.

Provide maintenance services. Another venue to expand its revenue base is to


expand its maintenance services to include services post expiry of the defect
liability period. At present, KA provides maintenance services to building owners
and operators during the defect liability period, which generally covers a period
between 12-28 months. Locally, the need for building upgrading, expansion,
refurbishment, retrofitting and renovation will drive demand for the upgrade of
electrical and mechanical systems across the lifespan of buildings.

Financials & valuation


FY15 margin hit by GST. For the past three years, save for FY15, KAs GP
margins were above 15% (FY14: 15.8%; FY15: 13%; FY16: 17.1%). The decrease in
FY15 GP margin was due to an increase in costs, mainly resulting from the
implementation of GST that was levied on its contract materials such as
generator sets, transformers, cables and switchboards. Typically, the GP margin
is higher for more complex works. 5M17 GP margin stood at 18.2%.

Healthy order book. KA had an outstanding order book of MYR216.9m at end-May


2017 (equivalent to 2.3x FY16 revenue), which will be progressively recognised
over FY17-19. Some of the property projects which engaged KA for electrical
engineering services include EkoCheras at Cheras (Unbilled: MYR38.1m), Astoria
Ampang at Jalan Ampang (Unbilled: MYR23m), Jalilmas and The Havre at Bukit
Jalil (Unbilled: MYR19.8m), and Lakeville Residence (Package 2 and 3) at Taman
Wahyu, KL (Unbilled: MYR15.3m), just to name a few.

Will be in a net cash position. KA will be a net cash company pursuant to the
listing. Based on its pro forma balance sheet (after utilisation of IPO proceeds),
the company will have MYR14.4m net cash, equivalent to 4.5sen per share
(approximately 18% of the IPO price of MYR0.25).

Valuation on the listing day. Based on its pro forma financial statements, KA is
trading at an historical FY16 P/E of 12.2x, at its IPO price of MYR0.25. Based on
annualised 5M17 earnings, KA trades at a prospective FY17 P/E of 11.7x. In
comparison, the Bursa Malaysia Construction Index trades at a 2017 P/E of 15.0x.
While there are other M&E companies listed on Bursa Malaysia, such as Bintai
Kinden, LFE Corporation, Metronic Global, YFG Bhd and AWC (via its subsidiary
Qudotech S/B), most of these companies were loss-making in the latest financial
year. AWC is not a direct comparable as it has three core divisions.

and the market for Alternative Investment disclosed to the public and able to be accessed by a general public investor. The result, therefore, is from the
perspective of a third party. It is not an evaluation of operation and is not based on inside information. The survey result is as of the date appearing in the
Corporate Governance Report of Thai Listed Companies. As a result, the survey may be changed after that date. MBKET does not confirm nor certify the
accuracy of such survey result.
The disclosure of the Anti-Corruption Progress Indicators of a listed company on the Stock Exchange of Thailand, which is assessed by Thaipat Institute, is made
in order to comply with the policy and sustainable development plan for the listed companies of the Office of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Thaipat Institute made this assessment based on the information received from the listed company, as stipulated in the form for the assessment of Anti-
corruption which refers to the Annual Registration Statement (Form 56-1), Annual Report (Form 56-2), or other relevant documents or reports of such listed
company. The assessment result is therefore made from the perspective of Thaipat Institute that is a third party. It is not an assessment of operation and is not
based on any inside information. Since this assessment is only the assessment result as of the date appearing in the assessment result, it may be changed after
that date or when there is any change to the relevant information. Nevertheless, MBKET does not confirm, verify, or certify the accuracy and completeness of
the assessment result.
