I think KSSC IPO is not attractive because of no dividend policy and profit after tax drop from a year earlier. However, PE Ratio is rather low.

  • Agree, not very good IPO

  • I disagreed with your comment! I think this is a good company for investment because you check the NTA, most of the companies revalued the properties before IPO but this company do you realised that no revaluation reports and valued at net book value.

    Regarding the Dividend policy, I don’t known based on my personal opinion, most of the IPO companies normally wouldn’t put the dividend policy because after you committed you must paid on it even you not making a profit.

    For the profit after tax droped from a year earlier, I found out because of the gain on disposal of PPE of RM2.3 million, if you deducted the gain on disposal, you will realised that the PAT is increasing, please check the Management Discussion and Analysis.
