At this moment, there is no news whether PServices has achieved the financial close for SKIN. In an October report, AmInvestment Bank has gathered that "the group is in discussion with several financial investors, and is in the midst of securing the best offer(s)". AmInvestment Bank is prepared to raise the fair value for Presbhd from RM2.08 to cica RM3.00 once the financial close for SKIN is attained. In September, Public Investment Bank has assigned a 12-month target for Presbhd of RM2.87.
We should not be too surprised by the sell-down for Presbhd as there were signs earlier that one or more of the substantial shareholders had been selling (as pointed out in my earlier report). Having said that, I am quite perplexed as to why the selling is so aggressive at this low price level. Chartwise, Presbhd is now struggling to hold at its long-term uptrend line support of RM1.20-1.25. If this support failed, it can easily drop to the psychological RM1.00 mark.

Latest Financial Position
As at 30/6/2017, Presbhd's financial position is deemed satisfactory with current ratio at 3.7x and gearing ratio at 0.3x.
Based on satisfactory financial performance & position, and fairly attractive valuation, Presbhd is considered a good stock for long-term investment. The main concern is the weak technical outlook which may lead to further price weakness in the near term. In view of this, you should exercise careful discretion if you wish to add this stock to your portfolio.
