RE: Riverstone Holdings
As announced by the company. by the end of 2012 the Group’s production capacity is expected to increase by 300 million to 3.1 billion gloves. On a fully diluted basis, the trailling P/E is about 9. ROE / ROA in these several years have been in the high teens. Clean balance sheet. Major holders exercise the warrants like crazy.

As a reminder, the ex-dividend date for 2.2 cents MYR is 12 Sept 2012.

Vested.

RE: Riverstone Holdings
Just received the Riverstone result, not bad for this quarter. The drop in rubber price and weakness in USD finally show up in the result. The net margin rise to 14.7%, and PE now is 8.8x, also partly thanks to the recent spike of MYR.

NAV is S$0.33 so you are not paying much above the NAV. The dividend yield is good too, around 5% if not mistaken.

This stock is really missed out in the recent bull run. Probably people is concern about the massive amount of warrant exercise. Anyway good to see the result finally improved.

Oh ya, i also a bit concerned about their HDD clean room segment (major client Seagate). As we know the PC sector is declining fast, anyone knows how is the impact to HDD sector? Could their clean room glove sales get affected?

Extracted from FY12 Annual Report:
"2012 was a tough year for the electronics industry, especially the Hard Disk Drive sector (“HDD sector”). The recovery in the sector has been slower than expected due to the weak global economic environment.
Last year, I shared that the Group had developed a new cleanroom product to serve a new market segment within the electronics industry. I am pleased that we have been successful in marketing the product to the manufacturers of flat panels and tablets and are seeing increasing market acceptance. Demand for the new product has enabled us to lift overall increase in sales of cleanroom gloves to 10% in 2012, notwithstanding the flat demand from the HDD sector. With this new product, we have managed to carve a new niche for ourselves and reinforce our market position as a leading innovator for cleanroom gloves.
Sales of healthcare gloves continue to be strong, with volume sales up by 23% last year. However, average selling prices were under pressure due to competition as new nitrile capacity came onstream, especially in the second half of the year. Glove manufacturers were also unable to pass on the full impact of cost increases such as the increases in raw materials, fuel and labour costs."

Hi NTL,

Thanks for your info. This really clear the last barrage. Glad they find another segment in clean room. Clean room is their biggest advantage. As for the healthcare glove there are too many much bigger competitors in Malaysia, which i guess Riverstone just ride on the wave which lift every glove players, they don't really have the differential factor in healthcare glove.

I heard those bigger glove makers are also busy ramping up their nitrile capacity aggressively since they have learned a lesson from the rubber price hike. So i afraid Riverstone nitrile advantage is losing fast too.

Hehe during a visit to hospital i do heard doctor complained about Latex his hand get allergy of that.

IIRC, they bought a piece of land in Perak (i think it is the annoucement below) and will be building a new line to ramp up their production.

The Board of Directors of Riverstone Holdings Limited (the “Company” or together with its subsidiaries,
the “Group”) is pleased to announce that the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Sinetimed
Consumables Sdn Bhd (“Sinetimed”) had acquired a piece of land of 30 acres located at Kamunting
Raya Industrial Estate, Taiping, Perak, Malaysia for a purchase price of RM12,414,600.00 (the “Land”)
The Company intends to utilise the Land to support the business expansion of Sinetimed.

RE: Riverstone Holdings
in Australia hospitals where I work almost 50% nitrile gloves used now to cater for people with allergy to latex.
Pro for nitrile - no messy powder, non allergic, thicker than latex
Cons - thicker so makes touch feeling less sensitive for procedures

On another note, notice some share buy backs recently, any comments on whether this is good move by management?

RE: Riverstone Holdings
Apologies to bring up this thread again.

Qualitatively, Riverstone management has demonstrated commitment and ability in creating a niche market for the company and expand production line opportunistically.

-It commissioned 6 new production lines and increased production capacity from 2.5 billion to 3.1 billion gloves annually. This had borne fruits as shown from the increasing revenue.
-Prudently expanding the dipping lines, existing factory building and land acquisition by utilising the proceeds from warrant conversion.
-Expansion without taking on more debts, but instead relying on proceeds from warrants conversion. Although it results in an increase of outstanding shares, EPS has not been compromised as it grew from 3.28 cents in Q2 FY12 to 3.99 cents in Q2 FY13.
-Management has been re-iterating its efforts to develop the cleanroom gloves market that enjoys higher margin and carve out a strong niche market for the company.

Lastly, the management prioritise shareholders' interest, as shown from its track record of increasing dividends payment and a 50% payout ratio on average.

Taken together, it is a well-run company with efficient operations, competent management with clear expansion strategy and vision, with interest aligned to the shareholders. Shy
