Dr Sena Yaddehige made an exciting speech at RICH AGM today.

RICH is getting into Palm oil business, overseas.  

He reviled that they have already acquired 150,000 Acres of land in some other country and finalizing for getting another 40,000 Acres (16,000 Ha) in Indonesia. Very recently, another country has come forward to offer lands for the company and they are considering it too.  All are for palm oil cultivation.

They are also to develop 1000 Acres of land in Sri Lanka, leisure and agriculture related business. They hope state of the art vegetable cultivation will be a good venture for the future.

As announced earlier, 15 Acre Navinna land will be converted into a top class International University affiliated to best Universities in UK to produce real graduates suited for the modern world. They have already started the initial work.

He also disclosed that - They are in the middle of acquiring an Insurance company, a Finance company and with their already functioning stock broker firm they are going to offer whole set of services under one roof at all the Arpico Super Centers in near future.

He invited honest, energetic, capable, initiative people to join the Group in the process of building international RICH.

Richard Pieris to invest US$ 80 m

On Indonesian palm oil plantation:

Ravi LADDUWAHETTY

Diversified blue chip Richard Pieris and Company will shortly invest US$ 80 million on a 16,000 hectare palm oil plantation in Indonesia.

“We are in the process of serious negotiations to take over 16,500 hectares of land in Indonesia, Richard Pieris Group Chairman Dr. Sena Yaddehige told Daily News Business.

Dr Sena Yaddehige

He said the company was in an advanced stage of negotiations because the initial commitment to the land is around US$15 million and that he was trying to risk manage this investment which will be invested by the Group. “The company will be getting effectively only 11,000 acres and the remainder will go in for land settlements,” he said.

“Richard Pieris has always been in plantations and palm oil has been an industry which we have always been passionate about. We have even over 2,500 hectares of palm oil plantations in Sri Lanka. We will add a further 1,000 hectares to this,” he said.

“We would like to increase it further but Sri Lanka does not have that volume of land.

He said that had the land been available in Sri Lanka, he would have opted to have the palm oil plantation expanded in Sri Lanka. “I would love to do another 5000 hectares of palm oil in Sri Lanka. I have also been offered another 65,000 hectares of land for palm oil cultivation in another country, he said. He was tightlipped with the destination of investment.

“I have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the 65,000 hectares but initial work will be the Indonesian operation, he said.

The principal aim of this palm oil plantation would be for export as palm oil is a unique dual use product. It can be converted into bio-diesel profitably with the price going upto US$80 per barrel and the market is extremely good with the number of mouths to be fed arising daily especially in India and China. After all this is the poor man’s ghee while it is also an important food product,” he said.

It is going to be really hard work with a US$700 million investment for the 100,000 hectares plantation and it is bound to take around 10 years. But that investment does not have to go in full time cash for a start. The project will start generating funds for reinvestment for the third year onwards and we will be doing 100,000 hectares annually for ten years, he said.

He also said that his dream was to make Richard Pieris, a billion dollar company but that would be a long term vision over the next five to ten year period. “We are at US$ 300 million now and the next target will be to make Richard Pieris a US$ 500 million group within the next two years,” he said.

The targeted US $ 1 billion for the group will comprise US$ 500 million locally and the second US$ 500 million from overseas. “I have an excellent team with me and I expect them to take the Group forward to reach these elusive targets,” he said.

I hope this may end carsons monopoly in palm oil business.

Post Wed Jul 06, 2011 4:09 am by econ

Yesterday massive foriegn buiyng was witnessed in JKH.. I think RICH may also be a target of foreign funds as RICH is highly liquid share.
foreign funds usually buy liquid counters with a good brand name.
comapre to JKH or carson, RICH is undervalued if you comapare PER values for all three counters.
RICH : 13.5 , JKH : 21.6 , CARS: 24.5

It was due to force selling RICH came down, now there is no evidence of selling, like all other stacks RICH can recover slowly. After the subdivision many have collected at affordable levels on credit. Subdividing in to ten to to fifteen shares is also risky. In the past foreign buying was evident on this share. Broker firms also recommend large cap shares these days, RICH may take some time to recover. I am just holding . One day this might start moving. With new IPOs coming to CSE investors might concentrate on RCL SAMP this week. RICH may recover slowly.

Note 65000 hectares = 160615 Acres.

If you approximate numbers from what Chinwi heard and the newspaper article, the contradiction is

“I have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)" Vs whether he has already acquired ?

It is good if one can know when the News Paper interview was held ( not the publishing date of the article) vs AGM date before we can figure out whether he is lying to get to the bottom of this.

If you know something special it would help to know now than waiting 2 weeks. Is this issue about MASK plantation wage situation?

Total Number of issued shares = 1,937.49 Million shares

Foreign Holding = 1,149.10 Million shares ( About 60% of total issued shares)

So locals are playing around with 788.39 Million shares

RICH shares - Lot of activity today

Chinwi

Post Wed Jul 06, 2011 11:50 pm by Chinwi

Over liquidity problem for the shares like RICH is a matter of time.

When there are lot of shares in the market, with lot of individuals, normally the prices are kept low due to over supply. When there is an upward trend the sellers flock in faster than in illiquid shares.

After few seasons when a company progress into its target stages the institutional and high net people come into action and most of the shares are deposited in their bins. Usually with improved ratios, prices go up and the share become non-high liquid. When floating numbers become low the prices go up further.

I can remember how the shareholders became angry when SAMP issued 1:1 rights @ 10/- in 1989. It was trading @ 22/- and after the announcement it fell to 10/- . Lot of shares invaded the market. People who bought it @ 22/- lost half of their value. Some of them were intelligent enough to buy rights @ 10/-. We know the value of SAMP now, including few bonus and splits.

I feel if you can select and collect a considerable amount of fundamentally sound , low priced share with high liquidity and forget it for years you may become a high-net worth person some day. All depend on your holding power . i.e., the cash flow available for other requirements in life.

Hi friend...

In my opinion Richard Pieris & Company is a long term investment. ( 3 - 5 year) I do not think you could get quick gains from it. So if you have holding power. Please hold on. You will not regret.

in the PF which move up in the morning can be seen,….. some of us sell them at the optimum level as they often tend to come down towards afternoon, ……..replace those stock with a fundamentally sound medium term stocks, when they move up medium term go for another set of medium term stocks…. not interested on the business or the directors etc……. not fallen in love with any particular stock….. Not interested in becoming a fist twenty share holders or a director.

I do not want to mention specific stocks which I sold , that can hurt the feelings of investors who collect them.

Richard Pieris to transform Nawinna to global campus
Ravi LADDUWAHETTY
Richard Pieris Group will shortly transform its thirteen acre Nawinna property to an international university.

This transition will also mean that the head office of the Richard Pieris Group will be relocated at Hyde Park Corner while the industrial establishments within the Nawinna premises currently will be shifted to some of the Group’s industrial sites which are available now.

“We will be tying up with top end British universities and the selection will be made from Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College (University of London), Edinburgh, Durham and Bristol universities, Richard Pieris Group Chairman Dr Sena Yaddehige told Daily News Business.

He has assigned three frontline Vice Chancellors of Sri Lankan universities to conduct negotiations with these universities and the tie up will be subject to only those universities willingness for a partnership.

“I am looking for the correct top-end universities where the graduates passing out of that will be able to rub shoulders with any of the graduates of the frontline universities in any part of the world,” he said.

“When I came to Sri Lanka for the first time, I realized that Nawinna was not the place for industry while I also saw for myself how ill-equipped Sri Lankan graduates were in terms of ability and confidence and that was why I decided to transform Nawinna into an international campus premises,” he said. He also noted that the investment and the infrastructure for the transition was hardly necessary and minimal in the light of the land and the buildings already there. “As for the industries within the Nawinna complex, all which are there will be shifted to the industrial locations of the Group which are already there and in place while the head office will be relocated at Hyde Park Corner,” he said.
