CAO to invest in oil storage terminal in Yeosu, Korea

• CAO to invest US$32 million for 26% equity stake in joint-venture company

• Investment to strengthen CAO’s ability to ensure jet fuel supply and add trading value

A second green field project secured in a week and the appointment of a newly created COO position is certainly a positive sign for CAO trading business prospects.

CAO’s net profit up 23.6% in 3Q 2011 to US$17.0 million

- 9M 2011 net profit increased 29.1% to US$57.7 million, surpassed FY2010 net profit
- 3Q net profit growth driven by strong performance of jet fuel supply and trading business

I was fairly surprised with the latest result due to its strong trading performance at company level and the continued profitability of its underlying associates despite the volatile oil prices. It must be noted that for the first time in years, CAO is in a net debt position and this will most likely continue judging by the recent investments in oil storage terminals in Asia. CAO market capitalization stands at $690 million.

RE: China Aviation Oil
Oil prices are going up at the moment. I guess CAO will stand to gain in the next quarter results

RE: China Aviation Oil
Quote:While CAO do monopolize the import of jet fuel in PRC, what will happen if the PRC ramps up its refinery capabilities to produce its own jet fuel and hence render CAO services redundant ?

I think maybe that's why they have been diversifying their operations into owning pipelines and storage facilities. Besides helping them store inventory and allowing them to take positions on oil prices, it gives them possession of some assets that have the potential to earn utility-like returns.

Quote:I find it strange that the Company repurchased shares when it was trading at $1.20-1.40 level half a year ago but they don't seem keen to repurchase it now ?

Could be that share buybacks were not intended to be the main way of rewarding shareholders. They need some treasury shares as they have stock options to cater for, and they cannot dilute existing shareholders (CNAF mainly) due to covenants tied into some of their lending facilities.

RE: China Aviation Oil
looking at CAO now
The fundamentals are great:
stable net income quarter on quarter (but not cashflow)
Low debt
High ROE

Risks:
High account payable. Probably operating on interest-less supplier credit, which is kind of good actually. Giving it high ROE
unstable cashflow


valuation is good
rolling PE 8.1
P/book 1.17

RE: China Aviation Oil
maybe because of the inventory risk due to oil prices dropping.
