Tan Sri Dr. Khoo Khay Peng’s Settlements With ex-wife Pauline Liew (possible outcome)

  • Dear Friends & Fellow Investors,

UK Court awarded 64 milllion British pound as divorce settlements for Pauline. This could be in Part  Assets and Part shares.

KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysian tycoon Khoo Kay Peng, who owns the Laura Ashley brand, has been ordered by a British court to pay £64 million (S$112 million) to his former wife as settlement for their divorce in a long-running row.

Judge David Bodey said in his ruling on Friday (April 7) that Chai should receive the divorce settlement in the form of both cash and property, the Guardian reported. The judge’s detailed judgment on how the matrimonial assets would be split is expected to be released soon, said the report.

£64 million equals to Rm354,560,000 or Rm354.56 Millions or round up figure of Rm355 millions

Currently, Pauline is staying in the Rossway Estate in Hertfordshire, England. It has a huge land size of 1,000 Acres.  As to its value we need to get a Valuer from England.

While we are unsure of the exact value of Rossway 1,000 Acres Homestead we can definitely calculate the share holdings of Tan Sri KKP.

From Bursa filing Tan Sri KKP owns a total of

Total (units) 1,395,355,289
Total (%) 47.58%
Date of Notice 02-Jun-2017

 

47.58% of Mui Bhd Shares or 1,395,355,289 shares.

What is the total current cost? Mui Bhd last closing price is 18 sen

So 1,395,355 x 180 = Rm251,163,900

Only Rm251.16 Millions?

That’s far short of the Rm355 millions awarded to Pauline

Now what is the total paid up shares of Mui Bhd?

2,932,561,192 shares

2.932 Billion Shares?

Ha! Don’t be put off.

Actually a small sum if you add it all up. Haha!

At 18 sen closing price the total paid up value of Mui Bhd is

2,932,561 x Rm180 = Rm527,860,980

Yes the Market Values Mui Bhd at only Rm527.8 Millions only.

Is all the Assets minus all the liabilities of Mui Bhd equals only Rm527.8 Millions?

A VERY VERY BIG NO! According to Calvin Tan Research’s findings

Mui Bhd has 10 Hotels in the UK, 2 CORUS Hotels in Malaysia, A 6 acre land in Tasmania. Warehouses in Johor, Kl, Penang & Honk Kong. Apartments in Singapore, KL & USA

Over 1,000 acres Prime Lands in Bandar Springfield. 2 Prime Plots of Main Road Frontage Lands in Jalan Ampang Embassy Row.

Shares of over 400 Laura Ashley world wide

It has quoted & unquoted shares of Companies like PM Holdings, Mui Property, Pm Corp & Pm Capital

Metrojaya, East India, Somerset & Reject Shops.

THIS IS A VERY VAST EMPIRE

AL THESE ASSETS ARE SITTING ON OLD ANCIENT BOOK VALUE. IF REVALUED THEY SHOULD BE UP FROM 400% to 600% easily.

Take CORUS HOTEL AMPANG PARK For Example. It has book value of Rm56 millions. If revalued it should be around Rm400 millions. That’s 7.14 Times its Book Value. And at Rm400 Millions this One CORUS Hotel alone has more than covered Divorce settlement debt of Rm355 Millions

Of course Tan Sri KKP owns only 47.58% Mui Bhd shares. So Tan Sri’s share is only Rm190 Millions. Not enough to pay Pauline.

So we will look at another piece of Assets

CORUS HOTEL LONDON HYDE PARK

1 lot of freehold land with a 389-room hotel known
as Corus hotel Hyde Park at Lancaster Gate, London
W2 3LG (Date of acquisition: February 2001)

This one has a book value of Rm264,261,000 or Rm264.26 Millions  Book Value

And what is the current Market Value of this Hotel very near to the Queen of England’s Palace?

 

Malaysians to sell £200m Hyde Park hotel

The Malaysian owners of the Corus Hotel Hyde Park have put their freehold interest in the property up for sale for £200m.

Malayan United Industries have tasked Debutesq Group to sell the hotel, which it bought in 1997 for £44m.

The 200-year old listed Georgian building could be extended from its current 135,000 sq ft floorplate, the sales particulars said.

Alex Hayward of Debutesq Group, said: “Although the hotel has seen substantial investment over the past two or three years and is enjoying strong occupancy levels, a great deal could be done to improve revenue performance and investment return.”

Investor sentiment in London Hotels is at its highest since the beginning of the global crisis and the overall occupancy rates increasing each month due to the strong and growing demand for London hotels.

The developing interest from wealthy Chinese investors and sovereign wealth funds in the Middle East has led to a substantial increase in the value of hotels throughout London and other prime European cities

Calvin continues:

Ha! Now we know the Market Price of Corus Hotel Hyde Park is 200 million british pound

How much in ringgit?

So 200,000,000 x 5.54 = Rm1,108,000,000

THAT’S A WHOPPER – RM1.108 BILLIONS

And Tan Sri KKP Shares?

1,108,000,000 x .47.58  = Rm527.186 MILLIONS

YESSS!

That.s more than enough to pay Pauline’s Rm355 Millions debt and with lots more to spare!

Now this is possible if Mui Bhd sells of CORUS HOTEL LONDON. Do a Capital Exercise by Capital Consolidation & then A Cash Pay Out like Pm Corp did last time when Pm Corp paid a Cash return of 8 Sen.

Now if this Capital Exercise succeeds then what is the Windfall for the other 52.42% shareholders (are you one?)?

Paid up shares total

2,932,561,192

Sale of Corus Hotel London is Rm1.108 Billions

So divides 1,108,000,000 by 2,932, 561 = Rm377.82

Each one who bought Mui Bhd at 18 Sen (1,000 shares at Rm180) gets a Cash Windfall of Rm377.82

WOW!!

Now we get back our Capital of Rm180

PLUS FREE Rm197.82 CASH

PLUS FREE MUI BHD SHARES FOR FOREVER.

 

This was exactly what happened when Calvin bought Pm Corp at the low of 7.5 Sen

Cash Pay out was 8 Sen

So Calvin got back

Original Capital of 7.5 Sen

FREE 1/2 Sen Cash

FREE PM CORP SHARES FOREVER.

Too good to be true?

YAHOOOOOOO!!!!!

 

Warmest & Best Regards to All,

Calvin

 

Note the objections:

  1. What about the high debt of Mui Bhd?

Answer: Just sell a few more lands or Hotels & all debts easily cleared. Selling 2 More CORUS HOTEL (KL & MELAKA)  & 2 Plots of Ampang Lands if sold will settle all outstanding debts.

 

2) What if Tan Sri KKP refuse to settle?

That will be another answer(s)

It;s late now. Calvin will let you guys think about it.

The Court that awarded the settlement is from UK. UK jurisdiction can force justice against Tan Sri KKP in Malaysia?

And Tan Sri KKP should know Christian Stewardship. Monies we have are only entrusted to us as stewards. We don’t own anything. Naked we enter this world and we will certainly leave everything behind on earth when we die. Our souls will leave this world and we shall meet our Creator.

After all – all monies that go to Pauline will also pass on to her children (also same children of Tan Sri KKP).

So may good reason prevail.

Think on these things.

Good night everybody.
