KUALA LUMPUR: Vizione Holdings Bhd expects to register revenue growth of between 5% and 10% for the financial year ending May 31, 2019 (FY19) , following the acquisition of Wira Syukur (M) Sdn Bhd (WSSB) this year.
Group managing director Datuk Ng Aun Hooi said the acquisition would boost the group’s revenue as WSSB had unconditionally guaranteed an aggregate post-tax profit contribution of RM82mil for the group.
“Our current order book balance stands at RM3bil, while the tender book amounts to RM1.5bil,” he told a press conference after the company’s extraordinary general meeting (EGM) here yesterday
He said with the current ongoing works, the projects would improve the company’s total order book to RM3.6 billion.
On the EGM, Ng said the group’s shareholders had approved the proposed acquisition of the entire stake of WSSB for RM280mil.
“The exercise will be satisfied via a combination of cash and issuance of new ordinary shares of Vizione at an issue price of 11 sen per share,” he added.
WSSB had a construction order book of about RM3bil as of March 24, 3017, and the projects would generate earnings for the next six financial years.
Moving forward, Ng said Vizione would continue to tender for more construction and housing projects, such as the People’s Housing Project (PPR).
“The high-end market is not easy to serve, so we are still targeting government projects and some private ventures on affordable housing across the country, except Sarawak,” he added. — Bernama
