PPB’s cinema biz emerges one of four key margin improvement contributors

Quick Summary

THE film exhibition and distribution segment which is poised to return to the black in late-3Q 2022 or 4Q 2022 has been regarded as one of the four key drivers that prompted UOB Kay Hian Research to upgrade PPB Group Bhd to "buy” (from "sell” previously) with a higher target price of RM18.

With this, UOB Kay Hian expects this segment to see better margin improvement and healthy sales volume and hence, return to turn black in 3Q 2022 (this segment contributes about 45%-50% to PPB group’s operating profit).At 9.06am, PPB was up 12 sen or 0.73% to RM16.52 with 1,000 share traded, thus valuing the company at RM23.5 bil.

In September 2021, GSC completed the acquisition of 18 cinema assets from MCAT Box Office Sdn Bhd and Reel Entertainment Holdings Sdn Bhd, increasing its domestic market share to more than 50%.
