Roshan Padamadan presented his in-depth investment thesis on Can-One (Malaysia: CAN) at Asian Investing Summit 2014.

Can-One: Special situation with an imminent catalyst for value recognition. In addition to having an operating business, Can-One owns a stake in competitor Kian Joo Can (Malaysia: KJC), with the stake worth US$146 million – equivalent to Can-One’s recent market value. As KJC is selling itself, Can-One and other KJC shareholders will get cash for their stakes. Can-One shareholders therefore get the valuable Can-One operating business for free. Can-One manufactures tin cans (~25% of profits), produces condensed milk (~45 of profits) and has property-related activities (~30% of profits). Can-One’s controlling family led by Yeoh Jin Hoe (66) has proven to be shrewd capital allocators and may return some of the cash to be received from its KJC stake to shareholders.
