I remember I wrote about MWE a year ago. For a company who would have an earlier valuation of its land at RM31 million and later to have the same land valued at RM155 million (5x multiple) on the same year, this is really serious. I did not know SC and Bursa can still allow this to happen although they have helped smaller shareholders to get MWE to ask for an alternative valuation.
In this episode, imagine your controlling and largest shareholder signed a deal to sell the land for RM55 million thinking that market value is RM31 million. And several months later another probably a more well known property valuer gave an entirely different view, i.e. the land is actually RM155 million. Is this because the management erred or is it really something else? Can we now trust valuer?
This is an article which appeared on The Edge Weekly 2 weeks ago where they published it online.
WCE. If not because IJM is there, I would have had serious second thought on buying the company.
Another thing I would like to highlight is that the party MWE partners with is Pristine Primavera, a subsidiary of Newfields Group of Companies (a company which is related to Seow Lun Hoo).
Another very fishy deal involving MWE happened 13 months ago. Tan Sri Surin Upatkoon proposed to do a privatisation of MWE at RM1.70, only for him to do a U-turn a month later. See below. This is almost like playing around with shareholders and he does not care at all.
In these episodes, there are 2 things I would like to call: really questioning the 2 professional companies Cheston Internaional KL Sdn Bhd (the valuer for the land in PJ and Newfields Advisors Sdn Bhd, the advisor for the WCE, Mamee)
