Cash - Closing Status 20 December

Re-invested into K-Green Trust 1 lot in this week under Cash portfolio.  For its 3Q2013 financial results revenue was flat versus last year; profit +7.4%.  It is quite a defensive stock as all three assets in its portfolio have long-term concession agreements with NEA and PUB.   Senoko Trust and Tuas DBOO Trust derive most of their income from capacity payments, which offer a stable source of income with little correlation to economic or demographic fluctuations.  Ula Pandan Tust's income is derived in equal parts from availability payments and from NEWater output payments.   Its current businesses have been locally based so far.    Looking forward for it to spread its wings to Asia Pacific and Europe soon (in year 2014, perhaps?).

Added HPH Trust 1 lot in this week; total holding in it now at 6 lots.  Attractive valuation after recent share price correction.  Its 3Q2013 financial results did not go well with investors but l do not think it is justified.  Its 3Q2013 revenue and profit was +1% and -2% respectively versus last year <--- flat results.  A flat financial results is quite admirable when the world economy is still in turmoil and in spite of the depressed shipping industry which continue to stall freight rate recovery at the moment.   It is in Net Current Liabilities status as of end Sept'13 but overall still at Net Assets status; due to timing of US$3.6 billion term loan facility agreement for the refinancing of the existing facilities which was signed in late Sept'13.  It is still in free cash flow status.  Higher profit from new acquired Yantian container terminals was partially offset by lower profit in Hongkong international terminals.  Its share price dropped to its new 52 weeks low recently at $0.755 (11 Dec) which is really absurb.  Its end of Sept'13 NAV at HKD 7.41 (approx. SGD 1.20).

Received the following dividends in this week for my Cash portfolio :-
$65.80 Far East HTrust

Added Asian Pay TV(APTT) 1 lot in this week; total holding in it now at 24 lots under Cash portfolio.  Subscriber households have grown, average revenue per subscriber is constant, penetration rates have increased, all leading to growth in recently acquired Taiwan Broadband Communications (TBC) earnings.  Taiwan regulator already approved TBC expansion to greater Taichung which opens up opportunity to increase  household network coverage by up to 400,000.  NAV as of end Sep'13 at $0.91 and last done share price at discount of $0.745.  Interest rate swaps have been entered into, which fix a significant portion of the interest rate exposure from TBC's borrowings.  For growth in penetration rates, premium digital cable tv and broadband to increase as a result of up-selling and bundling strategies, increased set-top box penetration, greater availability of digital content, need for reliable internet access.  Network expansion through re-zoning is an opportunity for APTT.  Positive ongoing discussions with Taiwan tax authorities to resolve tax dispute.

Added Tee International 15 lots in this week under Cash portfolio.  Total holding in it now at 35 lots.  Tee Intl delivered mix financial results for 1Q2014; revenue +ve 24% driven by ongoing and completed engineering projects and profit -ve 62% due to higher administrative expenses and higher opex.  Higher administrative expenses was due to one off bonus payment to employees and higher staff costs and headcount in line with its business and operations expansion.  Giving extra bonuses is a good thing to do as it motivates employees which is in recognition of their hard works.  Higher opex due to unrealized forex losses that resulted from the depreciation of the MYR against the SGD.  It is in net cash used at the moment mainly due to cash received from receivables net off payment to trade payables, interest and income tax expenses and decrease in development properties.  Its chief executive & managing director, Mr Phua has 51% shareholding in Tee Intl as shown in the 2013 annual report so one can be well assured that he will run this company with very much more care and growing it at the same time.  Recently, it has signed an MOU with Loxley Public Company, a public company listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand to explore opportunities in renewable energy business and related activities in the Indochina region - Myanmar, Laos DPR, Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia.
