HL Global Enterprises (AVX.SI) - Cloud of Uncertainty Removed

In my previous post here, we discussed about HL Global Enterprises' relatively complicated disposal of LKN Investment International Pte Ltd (LKNII) and some salient features about why the shares of the company were worth a bet. Looks like most (if not all) of the points covered went through nicely and things are indeed looking very well for them.

In Summary:

1. Disposal of LKNII and CHQ is completed and the >S$100M proceeds are already received.

2. Part of the proceeds are used to pay off the Venture Lewis loan in full.

3. HL Global Enterprises' future earnings will be relieved of the heavy interest expense as a result of payment of the loan and we should reasonably expect positive earnings going forward.

4. The free cash flows of the group remains positive as usual.

5. The group has applied for removal from the SGX-ST watchlist and they had undertaken to provide a reasonable exit offer for minority shareholders should SGX-ST somehow rejects the application (in my opinion, this scenario is unlikely).

6. A 3-cents dividend is declared, giving a yield of 6.4% on current price of 46.5-cents. This is the first dividend declared since probably >10 years ago.

7. The group is reviewing the proposed development of their Melaka property as well as sourcing for sustainable and viable businesses with the huge excess cash that remains even after the payment of the 3-cents dividend.

8. There are some changes to the Board.

HL Global Enterprises has essentially gone from net debt to net cash of about 60-cents per share. Book value also went from negative to about +84-cents per share (higher than my previous estimate of 75-cents per share). As mentioned previously, even after this disposal the group still have various profitable operations, investments and properties. At just 46.5-cents today and considering that much of the uncertainty related to the disposal removed, HL Global Enterprises is still significantly undervalued and definitely worth a bet.

  1. My dad has held this counter for many years. Glad to see some improvements in the company's fundamentals.

  3. According to page 107(segment results) of the annual report, earnings would be approximately -500k for the next year(assuming it remains unchanged) after removing the one off "other income" of 87mil -> meaning this firm will continue to be loss making even after the disposal of the subsidiary?

    1. without the interest expense of 600-700k after paying majority of the debt down, it should at best break even or have around 100k-200k net profits for the next year? This is assuming the hospitality operations doesnt deteriorate any further like what management had stated this year - with the oversupply of hotel rooms at cameron highlands

  6. Hello everyone, I'm Patricia Sherman in Oklahoma USA right now. I would like to share with you my experience of borrowing USD $185,000.00 to clear my bank draft and start a new business. It all started when I lost my house and I took my stuff because of the bank policy and I met some bills and some personal needs. So I became very desperate and started looking for funds in every way. Fortunately for me, a friend of mine, Linda told me about a credit company firm, I was intrigued by the fraud, but I was intrigued by my situation and had no choice but to get advice from my friend about this company. contacting them really doubted me because of my past experience with online lenders, did you know that little? '' This company has been very helpful to me and my colleague and today, thanks to this credit company, the proud owner of well-organized work and responsibilities, they smiled back at me. So if you really need to grow or start your own business, or if you really need to borrow money in any financial hardship, we recommend you find a financial development opportunity in your business today. {E-mail:} ... online for credit not a victim of scam. Thank you.
