Bursa Malaysia targets 20% annual profit growth for next 3 years

KUALA LUMPUR: Bursa Malaysia Bhd aims to grow its profit after tax by at least 20% per annum for the next three years as part of its mid-term plan. The holding company of the Exchange is also looking to grow its daily average trading value so that it is on par with the leading exchanges in the region, said its CEO Datuk Tajuddin Atan.

“We are putting in place five strategic thrusts to improve the profitability and liquidity of the equity, derivatives and Islamic markets. In terms of growth, we aspire to match the growth in other advanced and emerging markets. If the SGX grows 5%, we will also strive to grow by 5%,” he said at the media briefing for the company’s first half-year results yesterday.

Tajuddin said the securities market has picked up momentum in the first half of 2011 (1HFY11 ended June 30) with activities under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) as catalysts.

“The ETP has spurred activities in sectors such as finance and construction. Notwithstanding that, our increased engagements with foreign institutions are directing more attention to this market,” he said. Average trading volume by foreign investors increased 37% compared with a year earlier.

Tajuddin added that its position was recently elevated to Advanced Emerging Market on the FTSE and its weightage had increased to 3.14% from 2.9% in the MSCI My Emerging Market index.
Tajuddin: We aspire to match the growth in other advanced and emerging markets.

Bursa Malaysia’s net profit for 1HFY11 rose 37% to RM76.2 million from RM55.56 million a year earlier. Its earnings per share improved to 14.3 sen from 10.5 sen. Revenue rose 26% to RM217.16 million from RM172.38 million and market capitalisation was up 29% to RM1.34 trillion from a year earlier.

The highest revenue growth was in derivatives trading, which increased 45% to RM25.3 million from RM17.5 million. Securities trading rose 36% to RM103.8 million from RM76.4 million. Tajuddin said the derivatives market performed better as it benefitted from increased accessibility and visibility when it migrated to the CME’s Globex trading platform in September last year.

“We saw participation of institutional traders increase to 42% compared with 38% before the migration. We have also seen steady increase in our Crude Palm Oil Futures (FCPO) contracts as palm oil producers hedge against the softening palm oil prices,” he said, adding that it has received approval for US investors to trade on the futures index.

Bursa Malaysia’s net profit fell to RM35.7 million for 2QFY11 ended June 30 from RM40.5 million for 1QFY11. Its operating revenue fell 14% to RM92.5 million from RM107.8 million.
