Upon successful completion of the rights issue which was fully subscribed by the majority shareholder MTD Capital Berhad, Malaysia, through conversion of debt to equity, MTD Walkers is likely to raise fresh money through of strategic private placement with a foreign collaborator.

This private placement will be done at a price combination determined on the basis of the value of the company and current trading price. Placement is expected to raise approximately Rs 2bn and dilute the shareholding by about 25%.

As a result of this rights issue and the debt conversion, MTD Walkers acquired the control of Norther Power Company which owns a 40MW power plant in Jaffna Peninsular and CML Walker Ltd a well known constructions company.

MTD Walkers is the only fully fledged construction company listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange.

Construction and Engineering giant MTD Walkers PLC is to expand operations on all of its subsidiaries in the current year. This comes in the wake of the recent rights issue valued at Rs 3.5 billion which was fully subscribed by the shareholders.

The company plans to expand and consolidate its current subsidiaries of Walkers Piling and Walkers Engineering. Two new piling machines worth Rs. 200 million has been ordered and two more are in the pipeline in expectation of the construction boom, said Viraj DeSilva Chief Financial Officer MTD Walkers.

Further he added that the engineering workshop will be upgraded and new machinery would be added with modern technology in view of expanding operation to new sectors such as irrigation and water supply projects.

"We have already tied up with foreign collaborators for these new ventures" said De Silva.

Walkers shares showed a dramatic downward trend in the market recently, and the Colombo Stock Exchange intervened by setting a 10% price band on the shares. Commenting on the share fluctuation their Chief Financial Officer said "We are not worried about that. After the rights issue there were plenty of shares in the market and there was selling of shares. There is no problem and the shares are highly liquid."

Furthermore the company is to diversify its interest and looking for strategic investments in the future. Public/Private partnership projects are in the process and will be divulged to the public once necessary agreement is reached, De Silva said.

Hi Memebrs..

KAPI will remain to be sound stock; there may be few members who interested on this. I just analyzed its financial and future strategies.

KAPI has following strong factors……….

Future strategies and developments……..

1. Purchasing of Northern Power Company Private Limited, a 30MW HFO power plant located in Chunnakam, Jaffna, as the largest provider of electricity to the Jaffna Peninsula

2. KAPI’s subsidiary CML-MTD Construction (Pvt.) Ltd. Has received the contract to undertake many road and bridge construction projects across the nation

3. Received contracts for the Southern Highway and other major highways and roads throughout the island.

4. KAPI won the bid to construct Colombo- Katunayake expressway

Financials…………..

Annualized EPS – RS.(0.28)------- After rights……. It will recover very soon

Net Asset / Share - Rs.35----------- After rights

Major holding – 90% is to MTD capital Bhd.. ( Holding may be diluted after rights)

Others to be noted

Experts predicted significant improvement in the corporate earnings in the sector like construction and hotels……

Do more study on KAPI......
Happy Trading

Also, its upgrading their machinery and workshop. Below are their group of companies:
• Walker Sons & Company Limited
• Walker Sons & Company Engineers (Private) Ltd.
• Walker Sons & Company (Distributors) Limited
• Walkers Piling (Private) Ltd.
• Transport & General Finance Company Limited

The former name of the company is Kapila Heavy Equipments Ltd which we can date back to 1981 with a wide variety of large scale Piling projects done in Sri Lanka. Good company to invest in.

The above financials are misleading !!!

Kapi was trading 80 - 100 levels in 2009 and beefed up to 330 - 600 levels in 2010 without any fundamental reasons. According to the September Qtr, the EPS was (2.45) with an NAV of 25.14. As this share is trading at a premium to the market, I would not enter KAPI unless I see some positive financials !!!

Hi TelesHope

I am not misleading the financial, as you said the September Qtr, the EPS was (2.45) with an NAV of 25.14 are correct. what i have mention the numbers are adjusted with rights issue (19:1).. As you know company has received Rs.33 per rights.Hence with rights issue the KAPi net assets would be Rs.35 and the loss get diluted to -0.28.

Why i have selected this stocks, it has a huge potential. Now the company on track to get more contacts,which would give strong financial position in coming quarters.

Do more study on KAPI............

Happy Trading...

Hi CSE

I am not promoting the shares.... I just telling to every one to get good return

Can u remember. when i posted my analysis on CLPL. the CLPL was 90 level... It went up to 129 within a short period. But still it has a logic to bounce back up to Rs.140 Level

Second I was telling about PAP when it was 3.6 level, again it went up to Rs.5...

KAPI also i was teeling fro Rs.60 level once the price band was imposed... will see it will touch Rs.100 within a short period

I am not promoting the shares even i do not have PAP and CLPL. But i am frankly telling u I have KAPI which i got from rights issue...

I just posting my comments to get the benefit to everyone.....

MTD Walkers to be one-stop shop for hydropower plant solutions
Hydropower is a minimal emission, low-cost source of energy that provides consistent, reliable generation which can be quickly adjusted to meet the various needs of the electric grid. With the surge in hydropower generation in Sri Lanka, MTD Walkers Projects announced the one-stop-shop concept for mini hydropower companies in the country. In partnership with the world’s largest hydropower company, the Andritz Group, MTD Walkers is poised to take on the supply of new turbines, the rehabilitation of existing hydropower plants and the supply of generators for new power plants, the company said in a statement.

"There is an untapped potential in offering turnkey solutions to small hydropower providers that we can replicate as a high-volume, profitable package," says Tulsi Wallooppillai, Director Infrastructure Development at MTD Walkers Projects. "We are the only company in Sri Lanka that can provide this total solution for hydropower power plants in Sri Lanka."

The Andritz Group is a globally leading supplier of plants and services for the hydropower, pulp and paper, metals, and other specialized industries (solid/liquid separation, feed and biofuel). The Group is headquartered in Graz, Austria, and operates over 120 production sites, service and sales companies all around the world. The Group has, over the years, taken over many of the world’s famous names such as GE Hydro, Sulzer-Elcher Wyss, Voest MCE, Elin and Kvaerner making it the world’s largest supplier of turbines, generators and systems integrations.

MTD Walkers Projects, a subsidiary of the MTD Walkers Group, is the sole agent for the Andritz Group in Sri Lanka. Having worked on previous power stations providing turbines and generators for Polpitiya, Kotmale, Victoria, Randenigala, Rantembe, Maskeliya Oya, Kukule Ganga along with eight other smaller Francis turbines for different power stations across the island, the company is fully geared to provide a gamut of services ranging from the sales support and technical services to the potential of renovation, upgrading and the modernization of existing power plants, the company said.

Other than the above, can you provide any credible information with numbers to justify a price of 150 for kapi.

Hi TelesHope

KAPI has following strong factors…….

1. Purchasing of Northern Power Company Private Limited, a 40MW HFO power plant located in Chunnakam, Jaffna, as the largest provider of electricity to the Jaffna Peninsula

2. KAPI’s subsidiary CML-MTD Construction (Pvt.) Ltd. Has received the contract to undertake many road and bridge construction projects across the nation.

3. Provide total solution for hydropower power plants in Sri Lanka one-stop-shop concept for mini hydropower companies in the country. In partnership with the world’s largest hydropower company, the Andritz Group.

4. Received contracts for the Southern Highway and other major highways and roads throughout the island.

5. KAPI won the bid to construct Colombo- Katunayake expressway

6. Expand and consolidate its subsidiaries of Walkers Piling and Walkers Engineering by installing two new piling machines worth Rs. 200 million, that has been ordered and two more are in the pipeline in expectation of the construction boom.

Financials…………..

Annualized EPS – RS.(0.28)------- After rights……. It will recover very soon

Net Asset / Share - Rs.35----------- After rights

Finance cost amounts Rs.67Mn will be reduced and this would strengthen the bottom line…

Further one thing you should consider KAPI is only the construction company in CSE (other than DOCK, DOCK business is unrelated to compare)… Industry like construction and hotels are in starting to develop in Sri Lanka. This is been pointed out by the experts and prominent fund managers ( Guardian Fund Management ). Hence KAPI has strong potential in Sri Lanka… It will reflect its value in coming quarters results….

@Teleshop I am not doing cheap promotion. When I post my 1st comments on KAPI … KAPI at Rs.60 was level… Now at Rs.88 level.. 50% return within short period…

You would see the coming quarter results which will be more attractive. We do not rely the past. We have to identify the potential sectors to invest….

Do more study on KAPI

Happy Trading...
