According to the MMODE annual report 2010, the ESOS of MMODE actually have been given out since 25 April 2005
"Proposed employee share option scheme of up to ten percent (10%) of the issued and paid-up share capital of M-Mode ("Proposed ESOS")" which is around 96,267,000 x 0.1 = 9,600,000 shares
After given a bonus 1:2, total issued shares became 144,400,500 (2006) compared to 96,267,000 (2005).
Then, at 2010, total shares is 158,840,500 (2010) = 144,400,500 (2006) + 14,440,000 (2007~2009) ( Private shares + ESOS + others)
From Annual Report MMODE 2010
------ Number of options over ordinary shares of RM0.10 each ------
Date of offer Option price 01.01.2010 Granted Exercised Forfeited 31.12.2010
21.09.2005 RM0.10 3,816,000 - - - 3,816,00024.01.2006 RM0.26 45,000 - - - 45,000
21.08.2006 RM0.13 8,000 - - - 8,000
TOTAL : 3,869,000 shares
For Directors (>1,000,000 shares in ESOS):
Total: 1,225,500 + 1,225,500 + 1,365,000 = 3,816,000
Since the business of MMODE grow significantly recently, it is apparently a good time to exercise all ESOS to enjoy the benefits from the company (e.g. dividend and capital gain). So, after all ESOS is exercised, then the total shares will be 3,869,000 shares + 158,840,500 (2010) = 162,709,500 (estimated at the end of 2011)
Since in the last nine months, the total net profit of MMODE is:
Q3: RM3,913,000 or accumulated three quarters of RM10,768,000
Then if the Q4 MMODE manages to achieve the same net profit as it did in Q3, total estimated net profit will be around RM14,600,000.
So, our estimated EPS will be RM14,600,000/ 162,709,500 = 8.9sen.
Then, we can tabulate PE VS market price to assess the "value" of MMODE.
PE = 4, Market Price = 4*0.089 = RM0.356
PE = 5, Market Price = 5*0.089 = RM0.445
PE = 6, Market Price = 6*0.089 = RM0.534
PE = 7, Market Price = 7*0.089 = RM0.623
PE = 8, Market Price = 8*0.089 = RM0.712and so on.
So, from the estimated EPS, and based on the relationship of PE and EPS, we can have a better picture to determine where is a better buying point or selling point, if and only if, the assumptions matches in the future.
In other words, in future, if the EPS of MMODE is better than expected, then our target price should be higher and vice versa. PE ratio is just one of the tools help us to determine whether paticular investment is s considerable or not. And PE also affected by the future earning, which is unpredictable and it is the reason why all investments have their risks.
Rome was not built in one day. KLSE did not soar to 1590 points in one day too from 888points. Patience in the right place receives reward; But Patience in the wrong place receives 'bird poo'. Is MMODE is the right place to put our money in next few years? Let me do a record first and see how in the end of 2012.
