For Records only
Kori Holdings Limited ("Kori" or "the Company") is placing out 28.2m shares of which 25.6m are New Shares and the balance of 2.6m are vendor shares at $0.25 each. The Company is basically a sub-contractor for construction projects.
Kori generated a revenue of S$34.7m in FY 2011 and made a net profit of $6m. For the first half of FY2012, the revenue was $26.6m and the net profit was $5.1m. At the date of issuing the prospectus, it has an order book of approximately $82.8m.
The offer has ended on 7 Dec 2012 and there will be no public tranche.
The offer price of 25c is at a discount to its NAV of around 31.93 cents and at very low single digit PE. The market cap at IPO price is around S$24.8m
The company will be majority controlled by Messrs Kori Nobuaki and Hooi Yu Koh (61.7%). A group pre-IPO investors came in at around 12.5 to 15 cents.
I will not attempt to derive a fair value but i believe the downside is limited with potential upside as it is being listed below its NAV and at a very low PE multiple. In fact, maybe the owners have been "short-changed" by the financial adviser but personally will not buy this at the open market due to its industry and small cap status.
