3. RATIONALE FOR THE PROPOSED SUBSCRIPTION
The CAB Group is constantly seeking opportunity to expand its core business in poultry farming
to strengthen its standing as one of the leading integrated poultry and food producers in the
country. The Proposed Subscription is expected to play a significant role in further strengthening
the in-house supply of day-old-chicks (“DOCs”) so as to be in line with the expansion of broiler
farming of the CAB Group. With the Proposed Subscription, the CAB Group would have an
immediate access to additional supply of DOCs from CPSB.
4. RISKS FACTORS
The Proposed Subscription will result in CABC owning 50% of the issued and paid-up share
capital of CPSB which is involved in the same business as the CAB Group. Save for the normal
business risk inherent in the poultry industry which the CAB Group operates in, the Board of
Directors of CAB is not aware of any other risk factors which may arise as a result of the Proposed
Subscription. The Directors of the CAB Group believe that these are risks which they are well
placed to understand given their own experience as an integrated poultry producer.
5. INDUSTRY OVERVIEW AND FUTURE PROSPECTS
In spite of the challenges faced by the livestock industry such as high feed prices and the bird flu
in 2003/4, the livestock industry has remained resilient. This is largely due to the increasing meat
consumption in line with rising income level. Per capital consumption of meat, poultry and milk
products in Malaysia are still well below those of developed countries.
The livestock industry in Malaysia is projected to grow strongly with increased emphasis from the
Government to attract investments in the agro-based sector. The Government has outlined its plan
to turn Malaysia into a net food exporter and as such, has announced a number of incentives that
will spur the growth of this sector. This includes upgrading production techniques, improving
breed, handling, processing and special emphasis on waste management for sustained growth.
6. EFFECTS OF THE PROPOSED SUBSCRIPTION
6.1 Share capital and substantial shareholders' shareholdings
The Proposed Subscription will not have any effect on the share capital and substantial
shareholders' shareholdings in CAB as it will be satisfied entirely in cash.
6.2 Net Tangible Assets (“NTA”)
The Proposed Subscription is not expected to have a material effect on the consolidated NTA of
the CAB Group.
The Proposed Subscription is not expected to have a material effect on the consolidated earnings
of CAB for the financial year ending September 30, 2005 Barring any unforeseen circumstances,
the Proposed Subscription is expected to contribute positively to the future earnings of the CAB
7. APPROVALS REQUIRED
