Hi, Catalyst or not, can't understand why this counter selling so cheap: less than 1/2 NAV with strong balance sheet. And recent year dividend 3cents, meaning dividend yield around 6%.

I remember a few years ago MP Sitoh YiPing left the Lian Beng Board because he said the management, including Mr Ong Pang Aik and all his siblings paid themselves too much. The profit sharing incentives and categorisation, formulae are too generous. As you can see for yourself the remuneration for the senior management in the annual reports, the family is taking a lot.

One of the key points of the disagreement was that the Ong family's profit sharing was calculated on a "profit before tax" basis. However this did not account for minority interests which were significant. What this meant was that Lian Beng shareholders paid the family a bonus for profits that belonged to the minority interests in the JVs.

As an example, if there was a 50/50 JV, its profits were counted at 100% in profit before tax, and Lian Beng shareholders paid a bonus on that basis, but in fact half of the JV's profits belonged to the JV partner. Essentially, Lian Beng shareholders subsidized the JV partner by paying the partner's share of the profit-sharing bonus.

The Ong family was legally entitled to stick to the "profit before tax" basis, as that was how it was written in their compensation agreements. But once this issue was pointed out, the ethical thing to do would be to revise the compensation agreements so that profits from non-fully owned projects were pro-rated accordingly. AFAIK that has not happened.

As usual, YMMV.

RE: Lian Beng
Looking at the same PR from Capital Land Mall Trust, Lianbeng and partner are buying at close to 100% premium on the last valuation as of Dec 2017. Granted the last valuation has been ~4months and this was done via a "bidding process", but what is the reason/prompt by the JV to buy at this premium?

CapitaLand Mall Trust Management Limited (CMTML), the manager of CapitaLand Mall Trust (CMT), announced today that CMT, through its trustee HSBC Institutional Trust Services (Singapore) Limited, has entered into an agreement to sell Sembawang Shopping Centre to a joint venture between Lian Beng Group Ltd and Apricot Capital Pte. Ltd. for S$248.0 million.

Based on the latest independent valuation, Sembawang Shopping Centre was valued at S$126.0 million as at 31 December 2017. The divestment is expected to generate net proceeds of about S$245.6 million and a net gain of about S$119.6 million when the transaction is completed by June 2018.
