Market voices on:

The company did not state how much it is intending to raise from the initial public offering (IPO).

For the financial year ended March 31, 2018, the firm recorded a net profit of RM8.9 million (S$2.9 million), up from RM49,729 a year ago.

This came on the back of increased revenue of RM148.8 million, up 65.6 per cent from FY2017.

The rise in revenue was due to increases in revenue from both the manufacturing business and the dealership business.

Revenue for the dealership segment more than doubled, mainly due to an increase in sales of car and revenue from the provision of after-sales services.

The sponsor and issue manager for the IPO is CIMB Bank, Singapore branch.

The underwriter and placement agent is CGS-CIMB Securities (Singapore).
