Gloves – Malaysia

Blooming In Spring


The Malaysian glove sector is officially out of the woods with anticipation of sequential earnings growth coming into fruition throughout 2024. We have also observed a feasible trend of improving operating statistics from the past few quarters. With this and the US’ precipitous tariff hike on China’s medical-grade gloves beginning 2026, we re-affirm our optimism that potential valuation re-rating may continue to catalyse the sector’s positive share price trajectories. Maintain OVERWEIGHT.

The Joint Offerors have announced its intention to make a voluntary unconditional general offer of S$0.145 per share in cash for all the issued and paid-up ordinary shares it does not own in Ossia International Limited (S$0.150, up 3 cents).

At S$0.150, Ossia International is capitalised at S$37.9mln and trades at 5.8x trailing P/E, 0.69x P/B with a dividend yield of 4.7%. Net cash of S$9.6mln represents 25% of current market cap. Share Price has surged 25% since the offer announcement and now trades at 15 cents, higher than the offer price of 14.5 cents. Given that the offer is unconditional in all respects and that the offerors will not exercise the right to reduce the Offer Price by the FY24 dividend of S$0.007, we think downside risk is capped at S$0.152 if the dividend gets approved at the upcoming AGM to be convened. At the offer price of 14.5 cents, the company is valued at 5.6x trailing P/E and 0.66x P/B, which in our view is not a compelling offer. In addition, the offer price is about 26% lower than the 52- week high of 19.5 cents. We are thus advising investors to “Hold on for a better offer”.
