Otto Marine Privatisation Offer at $0.32

Otto Marine's share price rose after its controlling shareholder, Mr Yaw Chee Siew, offered to buy out shareholders at 32 cents. This represents quite a huge premium before the trading halt was closed.

Otto Marine's share price closed at 31.5 cents today. Lowest trade was at 31 cents.

There is still some risk that this might not go through as delisting is still subject to holders of the multi-currency notes agreeing to certain conditions.

The voluntary listing values the company at $68 million. Otto Marine trades at a discount top its book value.

OCBC first quarter results - Net Profit at S$856 million

OCBC Bank reported its first quarter results.  In summary:

  • Revenue dropped 2% to $2.06 billion
  • Net Interest Income rose 5% to $1.31 billion
  • Net Profit dropped 14% to $856 million.
  • Total non-performing loans ratio rose to 1% from 0.9% last quarter.
  • NAV was $8.20 (increase by 5.1%)
  • Earnings per share was 82.2 cents (down 17.6%)
OCBC Bank share price closed down at $8.77 (drop of $0.13).

Is OCBC a bargain at this price? 

Personally, I prefer DBS which is trading at a slight discount to its book value. Comparatively, OCBC does provide a slightly higher yield of 4 1% versus DBS 3.9%.
