INVESTMENT THESIS

Profile Rationale
DRB is a conglomerate with diversified businesses in Turnaround of Proton
automotive (manufacturing, assembly, and distribution; i.e. • Eventual turnaround of Proton to complement its growing
wholly-own Proton, sole assembler of Honda), services (Bank motor business.
Muamalat, Uni Asia, Pos Malaysia), and property
development. Property business
• Deep value for its property business where it is stepping
up launches.

Strong synergies waiting to be tapped


• With a slew of acquisitions over the years, it is now time
to tap on synergies. Examples include Bank Muamalat
tapping on POS’ distribution outlets and its full arsenal of
logistic businesses (KLAS, KLB and
POS).

M&A
• M&A for its Islamic Bank where it is required to divest a
30% stake.

Valuation Risks
Our target price is based on a 20% discount to our sum-of- Slow down in domestic consumption, continued losses for
parts (SOP) valuation methodology Lotus
• Lotus might continue to drag the Group’s bottomline
from higher fixed costs coupled with low sales
volume.

Slower than expected turnaround for Proton


• Similarly, Proton might be the main earnings drag factor
to DRB-HICOM as sales volume could be largely impacted
by declining market share from strong competition while
margins could be affected by high operating
costs.
