Then I noted, lots of share buybacks.
Then I notice the MD has been disposing his shares fairly often but the disposals weren't too big in nature. This was his last reported disposal: here
Its last reported earnings in Feb 2010: Quarterly rpt on consolidated results for the financial period ended 31/12/2009
Not looking good despite the apparent good profit shown... the typical warning signs were all there!!!
Massive spike in receivables! Trade receivables at 248.6 million???? So much? Why? How come? Any hanky panky?
Cash balance of only 2.21 million? What's it doing all the share buybacks?
Now such cash balance is not enough because look at the financial costs...According to its quarterly earnings notes, Kenmark paid some 4.633 million in 'financial costs'.
And naturally, we have the HIGH borrowings.
Kenmark is now suspended at 0.105 sen!!! Down a whopping 68.2%!!!!
