Daily Morning Note – 8 July 2020

PHILLIP SUMMARY

The global equity rally paused overnight after a strong start to the week, with European shares slipping alongside U.S. stock futures. The dollar snapped a five-day losing streak. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index fell, dragged lower by banks and health care shares, as data showed German industrial production rose less than forecast in May, underscoring the challenges as the region emerges from lockdown. The Shanghai Composite climbed for a sixth day, iron ore futures jumped and the offshore yuan briefly strengthened through the 7 per dollar level for the first time since March.

BREAKING NEWS

Global technology solutions provider CSE Global on Tuesday announced that Heliconia Capital Management, an investment firm owned by Temasek Holdings, has emerged as its substantial shareholder following the acquisition of a 25.03 per cent stake through a married deal with Serba Dinamik International Ltd.

Mainboard-listed Boustead Singapore has reported S$434.5 million in revenue for its second half, a 61-per-cent year-on-year increase. However, its net profit climbed at a slower pace of 11 per cent to S$18.5 million, mainly due to gross margin pressure, other losses largely due to fair-value losses on investment securities, higher administrative, finance and income tax expenses, and impairment losses related to the end of legacy projects.

Accordia Golf Trust (AGT), which owns 88 golf courses across Japan, on Tuesday urged its unitholders to carefully review its circular before deciding how they will vote for the proposed divestment. This was in response to an open letter by the trust’s largest minority unitholder, Hibiki Path Advisors, who said last Friday that the price offered by Accordia Golf is too low, as these assets generate “significantly attractive cash flow”.

Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) on Tuesday said it has filed an amended defence as well as a counterclaim for a lawsuit against it by Samuel Cranage Baker and Jeremy Lee Chuen Yang. The two plaintiffs have commenced legal proceedings against SPH and its wholly-owned subsidiary SPH Interactive (SPHI) for alleged minority oppression against them.

Catalist-listed GS Holdings has entered into a conditional sale and purchase agreement with GreatSolutions – a former wholly-owned subsidiary – for the disposal of the entire share capital of GS Cleaning Services and GS Equipment Supply.

Spackman Entertainment Group has entered into a non-binding letter of intent (LOI) with the representative of a potential buyer keen to buy its Zip Cinema subsidiary. Zip Cinema is a South Korean production house which originates, produces and invests in theatrical films. It is a major asset of Spackman, the company disclosed in a regulatory update on Tuesday.

A copy of the Prospectus and PHS are available from PCM, any of its Participating Dealers (“PDs“) for the ETF, or any of its authorised distributors for the unit trust managed by PCM.  

An ETF is not like a typical unit trust as the units of the ETF (the “Units“) are to be listed and traded like any share on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (“SGX-ST”). Listing on the SGX-ST does not guarantee a liquid market for the Units which may be traded at prices above or below its NAV or may be suspended or delisted. Investors may buy or sell the Units on SGX-ST when it is listed. Investors cannot create or redeem Units directly with PCM and have no rights to request PCM to redeem or purchase their Units. Creation and redemption of Units are through PDs if investors are clients of the PDs, who have no obligation to agree to create or redeem Units on behalf of any investor and may impose terms and conditions in connection with such creation or redemption orders. Please refer to the Prospectus of the ETF for more details.  

Investments are subject to investment risks including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. The purchase of a unit in a fund is not the same as placing your money on deposit with a bank or deposit-taking company. There is no guarantee as to the amount of capital invested or return received. The value of the units and the income accruing to the units may fall or rise. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of the future or likely performance of the Products.

PCM reserves the discretion to determine if currency exposure should be hedged actively, passively or not at all, in the best interest of the Products.  

The regular dividend distributions, out of either income and/or capital, are not guaranteed and subject to PCM’s discretion. Past payout yields and payments do not represent future payout yields and payments. Such dividend distributions will reduce the available capital for reinvestment and may result in an immediate decrease in the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Products.
