TTA: Records Oct-Dec '14 Profit Despite Challenging Environment Company On Track To Deliver Against 2015 Plan To Seek & Invest In Growth Opportunities, Reducing Exposure To Market Volatility.

Thoresen Thai Agencies Public Company Limited announces a solid set of financial results for the period October-December 2014, despite challenging markets. The company recorded net profit of THB 155 million in the last three months of 2014.

Mr. Chalermchai Mahagitsiri, President and Chief Executive Officer of Thoresen Thai Agencies Public Company Limited acknowledged that 2014 was a year of mixed-performance, as although TTA ended calendar year with positive turnaround in net profit it also faced rapid changes in the business environment, particularly during the last three months of the year. Challenges the Company faced included sharply falling oil and gas prices to declining sea freight rates and China's economic slowdown, coupled with a number of natural disasters, such as monsoon-influenced flooding in Vietnam. The combined effects of these impacted the performance of TTA and its subsidiaries.

"While our businesses have been affected by the market volatility and unexpected events, the impact was industry wide and felt not only by us but all our peers and in all sectors of the economy. Fortunately, we believe our strategy, and our determination to implement it, has enabled us to identify and take advantage of new investment opportunities. These will help propel our growth, and will help us diversify away from, and reduce exposure to, isolated risks and volatilities from the seasonal business cycles of the transport business and from the weakening energy industry," Mr. Mahagitsiri said.

TTA believes volatilities will continue throughout 2015 both in the industries the Company's traditional businesses operate in as well as in the global and local economies. To reduce its exposure to such uncertainties, the Company plans to accelerate its efforts to identify new investment opportunities that will create enhanced and sustainable growth. As part of these efforts the Company's management team has been conducting feasibility studies on several potential deals in the mainstream and alternative energy sectors, as well as the transportation and port services sectors

It is currently in the due diligence pr ocess of conducting feasibility studies, determining investment stakes and expected returns on a number of opportunities, and intends to draw conclusions shortly, wi th the expectation that some projects will be initiated in 2015. TTA is targeting busi nesses in the fields of energy, alternative energy, transport (including expansion of the existing fleet and investment in seaports), food and beverages and a number of other growth industries...FULL DETAIL  Full Detail

Group Lease: Ready To Roll Regionally.

SET-listed Group Lease Plc operates a motorcycle hire-purchase business, mainly for Japanese motorcycles with well-known brands such as Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki. Chief executive Konoshita Mitsuji discusses the company's strategy and outlook.

What is GL's business model?

GL started as a motorcycle financing business and by 2010 had become one of the top 10 in Thailand. Until 2011 we were focused purely on Thailand, where we have nearly 250 points of sale. But as a result of the floods in 2011, we accelerated our plans to expand across Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam.

Today we're the market leader in Thailand. We finance motorcycles in Thailand and Cambodia, offer collateralised loans on motorcycles in Thailand and finance agricultural machinery, specifically Kubota, in Cambodia. Our key theme is we want to provide financing for the tools and equipment our customers need in order to be productive.

How is business progressing in Cambodia?

We entered Cambodia over a year ago with an exclusive arrangement to finance Honda motorcycles. Today we have 153 points of sale: 131 for Honda and 22 for Kubota. We're leasing 2,000 motorcycles a month, and this figure is growing by 15% per month. Kubota financing is worth 100 million baht a month and growing strongly as well.

Finally, we've begun financing for solar panels in Cambodia on a small scale to test the market. Thus, in Cambodia today we have a total portfolio of US$35 million and plan to increase it to $100 million.

In mid-2014, GL acquired Tanabun. What were the reasons, and what effect will it have on GL?

We took the strategic view that GL needed to take advantage of the poor economic environment in 2013 and 2014 to look for acquisition targets. We acquired full control of Tanabun from the Thai Credit Retail Bank at book value. Its business model is a wonderful addition to our current offerings, as it focuses on motorcycles for cash or collateralised loans, which is the next step for GL. The Tanabun business has since improved to 1,000 a month from 200 motorcycles.

How is GL financing its expansion throughout Thailand and the region?

Currently GL's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 1.8 compared with an average of 5-8 for the industry, so we have the leeway necessary to leverage further if required. We have also made three successful warrant issues in the past five years. The first two were very successful, with exercise prices at two and 3.50 baht a share, while a third warrant has an exercise price of 10 baht a share, which we fully support as major shareholders and have exercised ourselves...
