[NST] MARC affirms AAAIS (fg) rating on Masteel’s sukuk

Monday, October 3rd, 2022

By Azanis  Shahila Aman

KUALA LUMPUR: MARC Ratings has affirmed its AAAIS(fg) rating on Malaysia Steel Works (KL) Bhd’s (Masteel) RM130.0 million Danajamin Nasional Bhd-guaranteed Sukuk Ijarah Programme with a stable outlook.

The rating agency said the rating and outlook are based on MARC Ratings’ assessment of the credit strength of Danajamin (AAA/Stable).

“This has provided unconditional and irrevocable financial guarantee insurance on the programme,” it said.

Upon completing the amalgamation exercise of Danajamin and Bank Pembangunan Malaysia Bhd (BPMB), BPMB will honour Danajamin’s obligations under the guarantees.

Accordingly, Masteel’s guaranteed sukuk will carry BPMB’s AAA/Stable rating.

Masteel’s credit profile incorporates its longstanding track record in the domestic production of steel billets and steel bars, its moderate domestic market position and the improving operational efficiency from continued investment in production technology.

The company is exposed to the volatility of steel prices and raw material costs.

The company’s financial performance improved, attributable to the higher steel bar price, for the first half of 2022 (1H22).

Meanwhile, its revenue grew by 12.8 per cent year on year (YoY) to RM894.5 million as the average selling price of domestic steel bars rose to RM3,020 per metric tonne (MT) from RM2,600 per MT in 1H21.

The normalisation of economic activities contributed to this after easing pandemic-induced restrictions.

According to MARC Rating, the outstanding under the Sukuk Ijarah Programme stood at RM90.0 million as of end-June 2022, with the subsequent repayment of RM40.0 million due on November 30, 2022.

“The company has a cash balance of RM62.1 million as of end-June 2022.

“The company’s borrowings rose to RM452.5 million as of end-June 2022 (end-2021: RM380.9 million), mainly to fund the working capital for steel production.

“The gross debt-to-equity ratio stood at 0.53 times,” it added.

[The Star] Masteel net profit surges 57% to RM13.2mil in 1Q

Friday, May 27th, 2022

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Steel Works (KL) Bhd’s (Masteel) net profit jumped 57.4% to RM13.2mil in the first quarter ended March 31, against RM8.39mil a year prior, buoyed by higher selling prices of its steel products.

Revenue rose 4% to RM457.4mil versus RM439.7mil previously, due to the higher selling price of steel products in line with the rising of global steel prices and recovery of the Malaysian economy.

Managing director Datuk Seri Tai Hean Leng said its first quarter’s operations continued to benefit from the accelerated construction activities since the recommencement of projects in late last year after stop-work orders to curb Covid-19 were lifted.

“Coupled with the increased utilisation of our production facilities, the higher selling prices have also contributed to our improved profitability during the quarter, and bode well for the upcoming quarters as well.

“With the positive start, we are looking forward to a favourable year ahead as Malaysia transitions to an endemic phase alongside a normalised economic situation for the nation,” he said in a statement.

As the construction sector for the nation picks up and with the gradual normalisation of the international supply chain, demand for building materials is expected to be on an improving trend which would support the prices of steel in the near term.

“While optimistic of delivering a resilient FY2022 performance, we remain cautious of the trickling effects from high interest rate and inflationary pressure which could impact the global economic recovery,” Tai said.
