MYEG: Earnings Continues To Rise

Results Update

In QE31/12/2016, MYEG's net profit rose 18% q-o-q or 57% y-o-y to RM48 million while revenue rose 13% q-o-q or 40% y-o-y to RM89 million. The increase in Revenue and PAT is primarily attributable to an increase in revenue contribution from foreign worker rehiring program services as well as from motor vehicle trading related services. However, the increase in Revenue was offset by higher marketing expenses and personnel related expenses. [Note: Myeg's result for QE31/12/2016 was released Feb 27, 2017.]

"New" Development

Last Friday, MyEG confirmed that the value of the five-year concession awarded by the Government to provide online renewal of temporary employment passes for foreign workers (from May 23, 2015 to May 22, 2020) is RM553.85mil (here). This concession is expected to contribute positively to the earnings and net assets per share for the financial years ending June 30, 2017 onwards until the expiry of the project. This concession was already made public in January (here).


MYEG (closed at RM1.77 last Friday) is now trading at a trailing PER of 37x (based on last 4 quarters' EPS of 4.8 sen). Based on average earning CAGR of 70% over the past 2 years, PEG ratio is comfortably below 1- which means that MYEG valuation is deemed "attractive" for a growth stock.

Technical Outlook

MYEG has been in a steady uptrend after it broke above the resistance from the horizontal line at RM0.15 in 2013.
