strutsYongam' strut systems are its key assets. Their high replacement cost are major barriers to entry by competitors. YONGNAM HOLDINGS is proposing a rights issue of 1 for 2 at $0.21 per rights.

Without giving a specific purpose, the company said that the proceeds will strengthen its balance sheet and use the proceeds for working capital.

The share price gapped down yesterday. Obviously, market is unhappy with the rights offering.

At the current share price, its theoretical ex-rights price is $0.27. The rights issue will dilute its NAV per share from $0.94 to about $0.70.

In FY2014, the company incurred a loss 
of $8.5 million. In FY2015, the company made a profit of $6.4 million or 2 cents a share.

For Q1 2016, its reported profit was $1.2 million.

Going forward, prospects may be a challenge and whether the company's profit can be on par with that achieved in FY2015 is questionable.

Borrowings total $129 million and, most likely, the rights proceeds are to repay part of the $69 million of borrowings maturing within a year.

In this case, if a call for cash is not utilised to fund any specific expansion that will generate additional profits, the market would not react well to its share price and a selldown will occur once the announcement is made.
