I narrate AT new entrance Known as Malaysia’s gaming venue, the project will consider the case of Malaysia’s sole casino naming Casino De Gentling.
Casino De Gentling is divided into various themed sections. Salon De Gentling features international games including Roulette, Baccarat, Blackjack and Caribbean Stud Poker with Jackpot machine and Lass Vegas- style entertainment as added attractions. The casino also offers the latest gaming systems for its slot machines via its Starboard while also offering gourmet quality fee through @Latte’ among others. Casino De Gentling is open every day of the year.
From 1980 onwards, players from different parts of the world such as US, Europe, Taiwan and Macaw continued to visit Casino De Gentling.
In Malaysia in particular, the annual revenue of the sole casino amounted to IIS$O. 63 billion. There are conjectures that new casino licenses would be issued to a second player but the Gentling Group remains to be the sole casino operator in the place today and boasts for its Casino De Gentling. Casino De Gentling is located in Gentling Highland a mountain peak within the Twanging Mountains.
Casino De Gentling opened at the same time as the Gentling Resort. The establishment of the infrastructure was meant to rival any casino in Asia.
Evidently, Casino De Gentling faces no strict competition to date. Nonetheless, if other religion and neighboring countries will loosen up their anti-gambling laws and allows the building of Casino, Casino De Gentling will face fierce rivalry through them. Given that Casino De Gentling is under the Gentling Group. It would be plausible to obtain and build on insights of the parents company.
Expectedly, Casino De Gentling might have partner media or brand consultant in advancing their brand identity. They also will be consulted to provide richer background to the project.
It is of my best belief that the research will be a significant endeavor in promoting awareness of the benefits of the casino industry in Malaysian economy. On a wider context, the findings of the project will be of importance to the business players planning to penetrate the casino industry either inside or outside Malaysia. As for our practice, we are aware that upon the completion of the course, we will assume a role in the business environment. It would be necessary to put emphasis on putting strategies into actions, which we could learn in the five competitive forces or porter’s forces which is threat of new entrants.
SOOT ANALYSIS S – Strengths: inside matters For our group’s survey and research on Gentling Group ,we found that the strengths of it is that Gentling Group is Malaysia’s leading multinational corporation and one of Sais’s best-managed companies. They have over 27,000 employees, 11,000 acres of prime resort land and more than 80,000 hectares of plantation land. The Gentling Group is the collective name for Gentling Bertha and its subsidiaries, which comprise he following three listed entities, with a combined market capitalization of about ARMS billion (US$14 billion). *as at 30 September 2008) The Gentling Group was founded in 1965 by the late Tan Sir (Dry. ) Limit Gogh Tong with the development of a beautiful highlands resort, named Gentling Highlands Resort.

Strengths/Weaknesses (SOOT) ? Helpful ? To achieving the objective Harmful ? To achieving the objective ? Internal Origin (Attributes of the organization) Strengths Strong liquidity position Strong financial performance Diversified business operations W-Weaknesses: inside matters Gentling broke its uptrend line .
Gentling reported its results for SQUISH ending 1/3/2008 on May 29th.
The net profit declined 14. 6% q-o-q or 33. 1% y-o-y to ARMOR. 4 million. Turnover of RIM. 164 billion was 6.
6% higher than the same quarter last year, but 3. 8% lower than the immediately preceding quarter. The 33. 1%-drop in net profit, when compared to the same quarter last year, was attributable to one-off gain recorded previously, such as the ARMOR. 7 million net gain arising from the dilution of its shareholdings in Resorts World and Gentling International PL as well as a gain on dilution of ARMS. Million arising from Resorts World’s investment in Star Cruises.
The 14. %-drop in net profit, when compared to the immediately preceding quarter, was attributable to lower profits from the Leisure & Hospitality Division (due to lower visitors arrival Gentling Highlands Resort & its I-J casinos) as well as the Plantation Division (due to lower Preproduction) Technically speaking, Gentling has broken below its immediate uptrend line support of RIM. 1 5. The next supports are at RIM. 20 & RIM. 50.
Weaknesses Limited investor confidence Weak performance in the plantations Limited Geographic Presence External Origin (Attributes of the environment) Opportunities Strategic acquisitions Resort World at Santos (ROWS) Improvement in Malaysian tourism sector O-opportunities: outside matters Gentling foresaw the opportunities for the Singapore casino and Gentling wins bid for Singapore casino . For the information shares of Gentling, the biggest casino operator In Salsa Dye market value, recorder tenet Delegates Jump In at least II years Monday after the company won a bid to build a $3. Billion resort in Singapore. Gentling shares Jumped 2. 75 ringing, or 9. 4 percent, to 32 ringing on the Koala Lump stock exchange, the biggest increase since Jan.
14, 2000. Gentling also owns Star Cruises, the largest Asian cruise line and a partner in the Santos bid, and Gentling Highlands, a cluster of hotels around casinos on a mountain top near the Malaysian capital. Shares of Star Cruises rose as much as 53 percent in Hong Kong. The winning bid prompted banks to increase target prices for Gentling stock. Credit Issue Group lifted its target to 37.
25 ringing from 28. 5 ringing. UBS raised its price forecast 30th. ringing from 29. 7 ringing. Gentling expects the resort to generate 15 billion Singapore dollars a year in tourism spending, and plans to spend 200 million Lars a year to rejuvenate the project over arrears.
The company has said the casino could generate as much as $2 billion in gambling revenue in the first year. Limit is betting the Singapore project will help the company leapfrog Hurrah’s Entertainment and Wynn Resorts to become the world’s third-largest gaming- operator by market value.. T-Threats: outside matters After us doing the research, the threat that Gentling facing is intermediate financial risk.
Gentling maintains a conservative capital structure and a consistent healthy financial profile, due to its strong cash flow generation.
Coupled with a measured approach toward acquisitive growth, Gentling funds from operations (OFF) to debt averaged 64% in the past three years, which compares favorably against industry peers. With the proportionate consolidation of financially weaker associate, Star Cruises, cash flow measures, while low, remained adequate, with three-year average OFF to debt at 32. 4%and EBITDA interest cover at lox. Plus, single-site risk of gaming business also one of the threats.
Gentian’s gaming operations are exposed to single-site risk, as most of its facilities are located at Gentling Highlands in Malaysia. The country’s largely Muslim population imposes added risk to regulatory environment, expanding gaming market although such risk has been lessened with the more moderate National Front Coalition in power.
In the other hand, Gentling also faces increasing competitive threats from an in the region, e. G. , Macaw and Singapore. Nevertheless,Gentling derives most of its revenue from the steady grind market at home, which is more resistant to competition.
Threats Legislative changes in gaming sector Economic condition in I-J Growing competition Gentling Bertha (Gentling) is a Malaysia-based investment holding and management many. Its diverse business portfolio and its strong liquidity position place it at an edge over its peers.
Gentian’s weak operational performance and declining returns could be of concern. The company’s growth could be restricted by factors such as competition and economic situation in I-J. However, the company could stand to gain from ROWS, its resort project in Santos (Singapore).

As for the Philippines, Manila Bay will only see new supply after 3-4 Years, leaving RIM as the only private casino operator with a new IR at Newport City to thump Pastor’s tired casinos.

In order to stave off rising competition from Singapore IRs, RUG should focus on rejuvenating its properties (already allocating additional Room capes to refurbish hotels over next 6 months) and more effective marketing initiatives to retain maidenhair as well as tap into new markets.
Other assets which have potential to be cashews (high market share but lower growth potential, mainly in more matured market Gentling I-J (largest casino operator in I-J); Gentling New York (owns Aqueduct which could end up as the largest New York Racine given its proximity to Manhattan, Chinatown and JEFF Airport); and NC ; SSL (third largest cruise operator in the world) Given Gene’s attractive valuation, massive war chest (Raman post-acquisition of Gentling UK + upfront license fee for Gentling New York) and strong cash generating operations, GENT may be encouraged to increase its stake in GENE (if not privatized).

Assets with high growth but low market share potential include: Plantation. GENE is only a mid-size player compared to regional peers. Long-term growth could come from its ask ha in Indonesia that is only 21% planted.
While highly profitable and scofflaws generative, GENE is less of a strategic fit to the Group. GENT should consider Unlocking value – its 55% controlling stake is currently worth RIM.

We understand GENT is currently in discussion with interested parties – its 95% stake could be worth Rummy or Essen/GENT share.

Held under a 75:25 JP with SUM, the land could command scarcity premium given Macaw government’s 3-year freeze on new casino applications and ban on land reclamation for casino operations. But timing for commencement of operations remains uncertain given the government’s table cap (5,500 up to 2013).
Although rather small (2 acres) and competition is Intensifying with Galaxy Macaw and Parcels 5 & 6 opening in 2011/12, the asset is strategic to the Group to penetrate Macaw, which should benefit from China’s low gaming penetration rate, rising discretionary spending/ private wealth, and infrastructure improvements.
(iv) Divest the Dogs. We identified some assets which GENT should consider disposing given low growth and market share potential: Power: While we are tempted to classify this asset as a cashew, earnings from China power plants had been volatile in the absence of automatic pass-through of coal prices.
GENT is still negotiating with the China government for a tariff hike (the last one was in Junco). It had openly stated before that its power operations (including independent power producers in Malaysia and India) are for sale – they are potentially worth RIM. B or Essen/GENT share.
Rank Group: Although the second largest casino operator in the I-J after Gentling I-J, we see little synergy from GENES’ small stake given Auk’s strict anti- monopolistic laws. At best, it may help Gentling I-J keep tab of Ranks plans (biggest major shareholder is Hong Leone Group with 29% stake).
I-J gaming market has proven to be challenging, marred by a nascent economic recovery, adverse regulatory changes, and intense competition. GENES’ stake is worth S$mm (1 cent/GENES share). Landmarks: GENT built up its 30% stake back in 2006-07.
The net cash property pullover owns 338 ha in Fabian Island (I-hour ferry ride from Singapore), including a license to operate gaming resorts (issued under regional regulation).

GENT’S stake is worth ARMOR m (seen/GENT share). Walker Digital Gaming: Gene’s acquisition of a 10% stake in the Us-based R&D company in Novel was heavily criticized by shareholders (related party transaction, low earnings visibility). To date, GENE has recognized Rummy impairment on its Rummy investment (remaining book value of Rearm). Colombo Bank: GENT and GENES have collectively acquired 26% stake in Union Bank of Colombo (Rearm investment), one of the smaller Sir Lankan banks that is planning to go public within a year.
This could be a Neff investment opportunity, or pre-cursor to bigger things such as a casino license or power plant in Sir Lankan.
