IOI advances on Singapore land buy

IOI Corporation Bhd rose one sen or 0.19 per cent to RM5.34 as at 11.20am today as market players are bullish on its property business.

IOI announced yesterday its 99.8 per cent-owned indirect subsidiary Multi Wealth (Singapore) Ltd has won a bid for a parcel of land in the island republic for S$408 million (RM995.5 million).

Measuring about 24,417.6 sq metres (2.4ha), the land, in Jalan Lempeng, Clementi Avenue 6, is intended for condominium development.

HwangDBS Vickers Research said it was neutral on the deal as the aggregate impact over five years would be less than 10 per cent of IOI's forecast pre-tax profits (approximately RM2.8 to RM3.4 billion per annum).

"We believe the estimated S$709 million (approximately RM1,730 million) total investment cost is better spent on its higher-margin plantation operations," it said in a research note today.
The research house maintains a "hold" rating on IOI.
