The JV is expected to have a total funding of up to RM4.5 billion, 70 per cent of which through external financing and 30 per cent via capital cash injection from the parties.
In a note, Public Investment Bank Bhd said the project is expected to be commercially operational by 2025 and is targeted to produce 100 million litres of fresh milk annually within the first three years, rising to 300 million litres of fresh milk in 10 years.
However, the research firm has maintained its ‘neutral’ call on FGV with an unchanged target price of RM1.61, saying that it remains unclear over the valuation, given the sketchy information on the earnings contribution from the project. -- Bernama
