KUALA LUMPUR: CGS-CIMB Equities Research is positive on Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd’s (MRCB) foray into New Zealand with Panuku Development Auckland to undertake a transport-orientated development (TOD) there with a GDV of RM1.3bil.

“This is a positive development for its overseas property development venture and one that leverages on the group's experience in TODs in Malaysia, ” it said on Wednesday.

CGS-CIMB Research said assuming a five to eight-year development period for the mixed commercial and residential project, it estimates an annual revenue of RM163mil to RM260mil per annum.

“Based on a decent net margin of 8%-10%, we estimate a potential net profit of RM16mil to RM21mil per annum, or equivalent to 23%-30% of FY23F net profit, ” it said.

MRCB will develop the Aotea Central Over Station Development (OSD) in Auckland City centre. The urban regeneration development spreads across 1.08 acres with a total gross floor area of 487,520 sq ft.

The new development will be a 21-storey building with a mixture of retail and commercial space and 63 luxury apartments with integrated access to Aotea Station. The OSD will begin after the construction of the city rail link’s Aotea Station, which is due to be completed in 2024.

CGS-CIMB Research noted that the new revenue and earnings from this venture will flow through beyond 2023, as the Aotea station will have to be built first.

MRCB will take on the role of a property developer, and not a contractor, and therefore does not benefit from the construction of the station.
