Its NTA currently (Sept 2015) stood at rm0.85. However the NTA is said to be understated due to its accounting policy to carry properties at cost model instead of revaluation model.
The company adopted "cost less depreciation model" to value its land and building. This has reflected an unfairly low valuation of the assets that it presently (Sept 2015) has. For example, the property that it isowning in Section 51A Petaling Jaya is carried at rm200 per square feet while the market value is around rm750-850 psf. Valuing it even on a conservative amount of rm600 psf, this would translate it into a gain of RM18million and if the high side of RM800 is taken, then the gain would reach RM25million - on this one property alone.
If were to revalue all … a rm25million of gain is translating into about NTA of RM0.20 per share. In the event if all properties are revalued to the current (Sept 2015) market value, we can see a substantial increase in its NTA and of course the present stock price (26 Sept 2015) is traded at discount below the more realistic NTA.
