RE: UMS Holdings
The 1H17 press release itself is pretty colorful to start with ("underline" from me). Don't really appreciate the fact that a "bonus share" issue + the regular 1ct/share cash can be considered "bumper rewards"

UMS HOLDINGS’ HALF-YEAR NET PROFIT MORE THAN DOUBLED TO REACH S$22.6 MILLION

- Proposes a special one-for-four bonus share issue and a 1 cent tax exempt interim dividend to reward shareholders

Singapore, Aug 11 2017 – Shareholders of SGX Mainboard-listed UMS Holdings Limited (“UMS” or “The Group”) can look forward to bumper rewards as the Group is proposing a special bonus issue of up to 107,285,986 new ordinary shares of the Company on the basis of one Bonus Share for every four existing ordinary shares as well as a one cent tax-exempt interim dividend after delivering another stellar financial performance in 2Q2017. Net profit attributable to shareholders has risen to S$22.6 million on the back of a 92% increase in turnover to S$84.5 million in 1H2017– on par with the Group’s full year net profit in FY2016.

Net profit attributable to shareholders in 2Q2017 shot up by 77% to S$11.5 million from S$6.5 million in 2Q2016. The sterling performance reflected the robust growth of the Group's semiconductor
business.

RE: UMS Holdings
Probably they will maintain the same dividends despite the increase in shares after the bonus issue. The last bonus issued they did, the dividend was maintained. Assuming final profit is $38mil, 6 cts dividend will be ~85% of eps.

Comments:
1) Overall, an impressive set of results.
2) Robust growth in the semiconductor business segment of the group boosted 2Q2017 revenue/NPAT/EPS to a new quarterly records level.
3) 1H2017 NPAT/EPS ~  FY2016 NPAT/EPS.
4) However, 1H2017 FCF generated is only ~ 55% of FY2016 FCF, not quite in line with revenue and earnings growth.
5) While the Group's prospects remain positive, the Group expects its major customer’s demand moderating in the second half of the year. The new terms of its renewed system integration contract announced earlier this year, which will have a lower average selling price, will also take effect in the near future.
6) Kalf Engineering’s contributions are not expected to be significant for FY2017 due to some project delays.
7) Proposes a special one-for-four bonus share issue and a 1 cent tax- exempt interim dividend to reward shareholders
8) AMAT has made a “margin squeeze” on UMS. How big an impact would that have on UMS’s top/bottom lines and cash flows, going forward, remains to be seen !

RE: UMS Holdings
What's the reason of the sell down? I thought the results was very good and the bonus issue is positive (from the past experience). Strangely I can't understand and tempted me to buy more =)

My guess:
1) year on year first quarter profit improvement of 200+% while second q improvement of only 75+%
2) CEO mention next 2 quarters will be slower.
3) PE ~12+ at $1.10. Not unreasonably high but higher than past few years average.

Not vested.

positive => buoyant semiconductor equipment demand
negative => there is a margin squeeze on the renewed contract by AMAT => how big an impact? we don't know
neutral => contribution from new ventures is still insignificant.
 
Overall=> positive ? negative ? neutral ? especially from FCF perspective, only time will tell...................

RE: UMS Holdings
There is a interview of the CEO on Straits Time that CEO commented that they will expand the Penang floor space by 3X to meet the demand. So next two quarters may be slower but long term outlook is bright enough for them to grow aggressively

And just like UMS is planning to do floorspace expansion, Chinese are also doing a lot of investment into this sector. AMAT has been making a lot of money from high demand on Chinese side this past year as China gov is trying to get in on more of the action. Currently its good times for all in the semicon industry as prices have been going up and up and up for past year, but this might result in overcapacity in the near future, which is what drives the cycles in semicon industry.

AMAT just had another fantastic quarter.

IMHO we are seeing the peak this year as the rise for the past year has really been too fast and furious. Semicon companies are now trading at pretty high valuations as well.

Interesting article I came across.
http://www.semi.org/en/industry-upswing-end-cycles

Thing is whether one believes that semicon industry still has cycles? Will all this recent massive expansion cause oversupply in a couple years time causing a fast and painful down cycle like it has in the past?
