The only answer that I can give is:

There is this group of interested investors, some maybe related to each other or other major shareholders, who like to invest in BRC. However, they are also wary of the current market situation. So, the best way for them to start investing in the company is to issue them convertible bonds, as they refuse to take in the shares. As they are buying in bulk, as usual, the company offer them a discount on the conversion price. So now, the company is happy, as they have some big investors in the company, and the investors are happy that they invested in the company. Win-win for them. So... who are the losers?

$500,000 big? I think there are many more retail investors with similar purchasing powers, but why they are not given chance in the first place. Do you mean that any retail investor could write in to request for 5% bond issue convertible at a discount price if they have $500,000 or more to invest?

Obviously, I don't have such amount of money, my average holding per company is only 4 digits Big Grin

RE: BRC Asia
From BRC Announcements : The Board of Directors (the “Board”) of BRC Asia Limited (the “Company”) refers to its
announcements dated 23 April 2014, 8 May 2014 and 16 May 2014 in relation to the issue by the
Company of S$10,000,000 in aggregate principal amount equity-linked redeemable convertible bonds
(the “Bonds”). The Board wishes to announce that the total net proceeds of S$10 million from the issue of the Bonds
has been used to pay off part of the Company’s existing trust receipts. This is in accordance with the
intended use of the net proceeds as described in the announcement dated 23 April 2014

I encourage you to do your own independent "due diligence" on any idea that I write about, because I could be and probably am wrong.

Nothing written here is an invitation to buy or sell any particular stock.

At most, I am handing out an educated guess as to what the markets may do.

The market will always find a new way to make a fool out of me (and maybe, even you!).

Even the best strategies of the past fail, sometimes spectacularly, when you least expect it.

I am not immune to that, so please understand that any past success of mine will probably be followed by failures

RE: BRC Asia
If one looks at trailing one year pay-out at current price of 17.5 cents, it translates to 1.3 cents i.e. 7.42% yield.

However, yes, there are going to be disappointed investors who get out.

Which happened today, with high volumes, sliding down to 16.9 cents, before one lot was transacted right at the end at 17.04 pm.

I have divested when I saw questionable convertible bond (at least to me, a retail investor). Not so much about their profitability or business model.

In general, precast should have great potential - this 3 years at least in singapore and probably the foreseeable future in south east asia.

RE: BRC Asia
So far, no sign of breaching 17 cents, or rather 16.9 cents.

Is back up to 18.2 cents.

Chances are that the next trough will be after it goes ex dividend.

If it stays at around 19 cents by the time it goes ex dividend, then maybe it will go to 15 cents, assuming a similar peak to trough decline of 5 cents like last year from 22 to 17 cents.

One can wait and see what happens in 2015.
