Lot 1812 is subject to the category of land use “building” and Lot 650 is subject to the category of land use “industry”.

A portion of Lot 1812 measuring approximately 44.60 acres (“Leased Portion”) is subject to a registered lease and another portion of Lot 650 measuring approximately 20 acres (“Acquired Portion”) has been compulsorily acquired under the Land Acquisition Act, 1976.

Please refer to the attached map for location details of the Said Land.

5. DETAILS OF THE PROPOSED ACQUISITION

5.1. Salient Terms of the Proposed Acquisition

5.1.1. Basis of Consideration

The Purchase Consideration of RM381,259,333 is calculated at the rate of RM13 per square foot based on a net land of 673.27 acres or 29,327,641 square feet after excluding the Leased Portion and the Acquired Portion, which together measure in total area approximately 64.6 acres or 2,813,976 square feet.

The Purchase Consideration was arrived at on a willing-buyer willing-seller basis after taking into consideration the development potential of the Said Land given its existing category of land use being a combination of “building” and “industry” with premiums paid and layout approval obtained. Given the Group’s knowledge of the market value of properties around the area, no valuation was carried out on the Said Land.

S P Setia is unable to disclose the net book value of the Said Land as it is not privy to such information.

5.1.2. Conditions Precedent and Estimated Time Frame for Completion

The Proposed Acquisition is conditional upon, inter alia, the freehold separate title deed for the remaining part of Lot 1812 without the Leased Portion, free from encumbrances, and subject to the category of land use “building” being issued by the relevant land authority in the name of the Vendor within four (4) months from the date of the SPA or such further period as may be mutually agreed in writing between the parties.

The SPA shall become unconditional on the date on which the last of the conditions precedent has been fulfilled (“Unconditional Date”).

5.1.3. Payment of Purchase Consideration and Time Frame for Completion

The Purchase Consideration will be satisfied wholly in cash by the Purchaser in the following manner:-

(i) deposit amounting to RM38,125,933.30 representing 10% of the Purchase Consideration upon the execution of the SPA; and

(ii) the balance of the Purchase Consideration of RM343,133,399.70 representing 90% of the Purchase Consideration is payable within three (3) months from the Unconditional Date.

The funding for the purchase consideration and development cost of the project will be through a combination of internal funds and/or bank borrowings, the actual mix of which can only be determined later.

5.2. Liabilities to be Assumed

There are no liabilities including contingent liabilities and guarantees to be assumed by S P Setia Group arising from the Proposed Acquisition.

5.3. Completion of the Proposed Acquisition

Barring unforeseen circumstances, the Proposed Acquisition is expected to be completed during the second half of financial year ending 31 October 2012.


6. ECONOMIC OUTLOOK AND PROSPECTS

The Malaysian economy expanded faster than expected at 4.0% year-on-year in the second quarter of 2011 amid a weaker external environment. The growth for the second quarter continued to be underpinned by the sustained expansion of private domestic demand. Major consumption indicators such as manufacturing sales of food and beverages, credit card spending and imports of consumption goods, registered improvements. These positive growths were supported by sustainable income and favorable labor market conditions which saw the number of retrenchments declined by more than half from the preceding quarter.

In Malaysia, while the global supply disruptions affected production and trade in the second quarter, the underlying strength of the domestic economy remained intact as domestic demand would continue to support growth. Going forward, the downside risks to external demand have increased following heightened uncertainties in the external environment. Nevertheless, domestic demand is expected to remain resilient and support growth amidst sustained private consumption, strong private investment and faster pace of implementation of public sector projects in the second half of the year.

(Source: Quarterly Bulletin, Second Quarter 2011, Bank Negara Malaysia)

In light of these factors, the management of S P Setia is of the view that the prospects for property development activities in Malaysia remain positive and is not aware of any risks factors arising from the Proposed Acquisition other than the normal market and global economic risks.

7. RATIONALE FOR THE PROPOSED ACQUISITION

S P Setia has been the market leader in township developments for more than a decade and has been recognised locally and internationally for its award-winning master plans. The Group strongly believes in creating meaningful environments for all with its LiveLearnWorkPlay development philosophy.

The Group’s success in transforming relatively undeveloped locations into prime residential and commercial hubs is well charted, with its most notable township developments in the Klang Valley being Setia Alam and Setia Eco Park.

Both Setia Alam and Setia Eco Park originated from a single 4,000 acre oil-palm plantation acquired by the Group in 2002. The large size of the land provided an opportunity for the Group to craft twin projects to cater to both the mass and upgrader markets at the same time. Substantial upfront investments in infrastructure to improve connectivity along with continued enhancement in amenities and services have made both townships highly sought after addresses today. A standard-sized 20X70 double-storey terrace house which sold for RM218,000 in 2004 was most recently launched by Setia Alam at RM688,000; similarly semi-dees in Setia Eco Park which were first launched at around RM600,000 in 2005 now command prices above RM2 million. Despite the significant increase in prices, property buyers continue to flock to both townships, as attested by the strong sales achieved of RM995 million combined in the first 10 months of FY2011.

On 12 August 2011, S P Setia had announced the acquisition of 1,010 acres of land in Mukim Beranang (“Beranang Land”) to offer starter homes to first-time owners and other house buyers in a new corridor presently unserved by the Group’s more matured projects. The Said Land’s close proximity to the Beranang Land will enable the Group to reap economies of scale on infrastructure spending and optimise amenities enhancement.

Layout approval has been obtained by the Vendor for the Said Land. However the Group will be submitting a revised layout to the relevant authorities to maximize the development potential of the Said Land. Due to the Said Land’s better accessibility, the Group is planning a more up-scale product mix to target upgraders planning to invest in the Semenyih-Kajang corridor, thus complementing the mass market products to be offered at the Beranang Land.

Subject to the necessary development approvals being obtained, the Group targets to launch the development on the Said Land towards the end of 2012.

The estimated Gross Development Value (“GDV”) of mixed township development project on the Said Land is approximately RM4 billion. Along with the RM3.5 billion GDV estimated for the Beranang Land, the Proposed Acquisition therefore offers the Group an unrivalled opportunity to repeat the twin project success of Setia Alam / Setia Eco Park in the southern region of the Klang Valley.

Whilst it is currently too preliminary to ascertain the exact product mix, total development cost, expected completion date or expected profits to be derived, Management is confident that the proposed development on the Said Land will be well received and is expected to contribute positively to the future earnings and cashflow of S P Setia.

8. EFFECTS OF THE PROPOSED ACQUISITION

8.1. Share Capital and Major Shareholders

The Proposed Acquisition which will be satisfied entirely in cash will not have any effect on the share capital and major shareholders of S P Setia.

8.2. Earnings and Net Assets ("NA")

The Proposed Acquisition is not expected to have any material effect on the S P Setia Group's earnings and NA for the financial year ending 31 October 2011. However, the Proposed Acquisition is expected to contribute positively to the future earnings and NA of S P Setia.

8.3. Gearing

The Proposed Acquisition will not have a material effect on the gearing of S P Setia for the financial year ending 31 October 2011.

9. PERCENTAGE RATIOS

The highest percentage ratio applicable for the Proposed Acquisition, pursuant to Chapter 10 of the Main Market Listing Requirements of Bursa Securities is 12.82%.

10. DIRECTORS' AND SUBSTANTIAL SHAREHOLDERS' INTEREST

None of the Directors or Substantial Shareholders of S P Setia or persons connected to them has any interest, direct or indirect, in the Proposed Acquisition.

11. DIRECTORS’ STATEMENT

The Board after having considered all aspects of the Proposed Acquisition is of the opinion that it is in the best interest of S P Setia.

12. APPROVALS REQUIRED

The Proposed Acquisition is not subject to the approval of the shareholders of S P Setia but is subject to the relevant authority's approval as set under Section 5 herein.

13. DOCUMENT FOR INSPECTION

A copy of the SPA may be inspected at the registered office of S P Setia at Plaza 138, Suite 18.03, 18th Floor, 138 Jalan Ampang, 50450 Kuala Lumpur during normal office hours on Mondays to Fridays (except public holidays) for a period of 3 months from the date of this announcement.

This announcement is dated 3 October 2011.

SP Setia is good, but the captain may be getting replaced soon,... and that's not good. NBot on the whole, SP Setia would be my choice of a developer, and I have never regretted buying from them three years ago.

Fortunately never bought from any of the K Euro or Talam subsidiaries. Nightmare developers they are...

SP Setia buys land for RM381mil to replicate earlier success(update)

By CHOONG EN HAN
han@thestar.com.my


PETALING JAYA: SP Setia Bhd, which is facing a takeover offer from Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB), has proposed to acquire land for RM381.2mil to replicate its successful township development in Setia Alam and Setia Eco Park.

The new land in Rinching, which is 673.3 acres and situated mid-way between Semenyih and Bangi old town, is forecast to have a gross development value (GDV) of RM4bil.

SP Setia had earlier bought 1,010 acres in Beranang for RM330mil on Aug 12.

The group is planning an up-scaled product mix at the Rinching land aimed at upgraders who are investing in the Semenyih-Kajang corridor.

SP Setia said the up-market project planned at the Rinching land would complement the mass market products to be offered in Beranang.

The Rinching project is close to the Beranang land which is forecast to have a GDV of RM3.5bil. The development would also enable the group to reap economies of scale on infrastructure spending and optimise amenities enhancement.

“Rinching's close proximity to Beranang offers the group a fantastic opportunity to repeat the success with Setia Alam and Setia Eco Park in an untapped corridor,” said SP Setia president and chief executive officer Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin in a statement yesterday.

“The value which the group has created in the western Klang Valley corridor through our well-executed master planning and upfront investment in key infrastructure as well as amenities has benefited not just us but other surrounding developments.

“As a result, the landbank in Setia Alam and Setia Eco Park have become very valuable and we are now in a position to launch upmarket products in both projects,” Liew said.

He said the group's branding was much stronger and it could muster strong support from house buyers to transform the location into a thriving township.

“We have been scouting very hard over the last year to identify suitable land bank in the Klang Valley where we can re-introduce the Setia Alam and Setia Eco Park winning formula but with the added benefit of the lessons learnt from our execution of numerous townships not just in the Klang Valley but also in Johor Baru and Penang,” he said.

Liew said the group intended to launch the Rinching project first as it had already been converted from agricultural to building land.

“Layout approval has been obtained by the vendor. However, the group will be submitting a revised layout to the relevant authorities to maximise the development potential of the land.

“Subject to the necessary development approvals being obtained, the target launch for the Rinching project will be in the fourth quarter of 2012,” he said, adding that the company planned to launch the Beranang project in 2013.

Analysts are positive about the acquisition but have voiced their concerns over the uncertainties surrounding PNB's takeover offer for SP Setia.

“Who's helming the ship when the development occurs is a critical question.

“What is the point of this land when you don't have the right person to maximise the value,” said an analyst.

She said there was still uncertainty over how PNB would impact operations if it succeeded in its takeover bid.

PNB has launched a bid to raise its stake in SP Setia to above 50% from 33%.“The acquisition comes unfortunately at a bad time.

“However, the proposed acquisition would present a fantastic opportunity for the current management to ask for a better offer,” she said.

On the planned developments, she said the land was in a strategic location with direct access to the Seremban-Kajang Highway.

The land is also about 15 minutes from the proposed Bandar Kajang My Rapid Transit station along the Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line.

The road accessibility factor was a huge selling point for SP Setia to replicate what it had done in Setia Alam, and it might take the group at least five years to develop the township, she said

SP Setia also said it had appointed AmInvestment Bank Bhd as the independent adviser for the PNB takeover offer.

Bernama reported Tuesday that analysts are positive over SP Setia's 272.5 hectare (673.3 acre) second land acquisition in Kajang-Semenyih.

OSK Research which was slightly surprised by the acquisition said it was in line with the view that property developers would eventually have to move further out of the Klang Valley to acquire a sizeable landbank for township development.

"SP Setia's plan to develop the site into an upscale mixed residential township with a Gross Development Value (GDV) of RM4 billion and its close proximity to the previous acquisition of land in Beranang, will enable the company to reap economies of scale on infrastructure spending while optimising amenities enhancement," it said in a research note today.

Echoing the same view, ECMLibra Investment research said the acquisition would increase the company's remaining GDV to RM57 billion (previously RM53 billion), of which its effective share was RM47.4 billion.

"This will keep the company busy for more than 10 years and due to the proximity of the two parcels of land, SP Setia will also be able to reap cost synergies," it added.

ECMLibra Investment's view was further underpinned by an expectation of a cyclical slowdown in the property sector amid deteriorating macroeconomic conditions. - BERNAMA

Rinching-Bangi access roads approved

Published: Fri, 01 Jun 2012
KAJANG: The construction of two access roads to a new 404.7-hectare mixed development between Rinching and Bangi has been approved by the local council.

“The first road will be accessible from Jalan Semenyih, after the Tesco,” Kajang Municipal Council (MPKj) president Datuk Hasan Nawawi Abd Rahman told reporters after chairing the council’s full board meeting on Wednesday.

The road will be constructed by developer SP Setia Bhd and will run along the length of the site, which will contain residential and commercial units.

“(The developer) will also build an additional 10 feet of bicycle and pedestrian lanes on both sides of the road,” Hasan Nawawi said.

He said the construction of an access road by the developer was needed as the development was comparatively large.

He explained that with smaller developments there is no need for the construction of access roads as the site could use existing roads in the municipality.
