Are Apex shareholders getting a good deal?

The proposed merger comes a year after the entry of an entity called ACE Investment Bank into Apex. The entity emerged with a 23% stake in Apex at about the time when a similar sized block was traded off market by the late Chan Guan Seng(pic), Apex’s former executive chairman and parties close to him. The share price of Apex then was around RM2 a piece.

Lower net profit growth seen for banks in 2018

2018-09-19 theedgemarkets
Banking sector Maintain neutral: The negative surprise in banks’ financial results for second quarter of 2018 (2Q18) was the 1.5% year-on-year (y-o-y) drop in operating revenues. At the top line, net interest incomes slid by 3.1% y-o-y in 2Q18 under the pressure of margin contraction arising from stiff competition for deposits. Also, non-interest incomes fell by 9.2% y-o-y in 2Q18, owing to lower investment incomes and weak expansion in fee incomes.

Malaysian banks’ 2018 net profit growth cut

“Malaysian banks’ second-quarter net profit was below our expectations as two banks, namely, Public Bank Bhd and Affin Bank Bhd, missed our forecasts, compared with only one bank (AMMB Holdings Bhd) that outperformed our expectations. “The deviation from our forecast came mainly from lower-than-expected topline growth and the unexpected surge in Affin’s LLP.” While loan growth improved in 2Q18, CGSCIMB is projecting a slowdown in 4Q18.
