THIS SATURDAY (Apr 27), Serial System will hold its AGM -- shareholders and observers alike are invited to the event which will include a briefing on its 1Q2013 results and end with a lunch.
Only 2 other SGX-listed companies are holding their AGM this Saturday.
Others have scheduled theirs on weekdays during working hours when, unfortunately, not many retail shareholders can attend.
This year is the 25th anniversary of Serial System, which reported S$825.4 million in sales last year and S$9.2 million in net profit.
Chairman and CEO, Derek Goh, will make a presentation on its business prospects, and take questions.
The CFO, Alex Wui, will be available too, so come prepared with good questions.
You will learn more about the outlook for the semiconductor and electronics sectors that Serial System (www.serialsystem.com.sg) operates in.
Serial is one of the top 3 semi-conductor component distributors in China.
You may even pick up insights into why Derek Goh continues to be a regular buyer of the company's shares. He bought 3.22 million Serial shares between Feb 15 and March 14 this year.
While he is the largest shareholder, at No.2 is Sam Goi, the Popiah King who is a substantial shareholder of a number of listed F&B companies but seems to have Serial System an exceptional case.
Serial has maintained a payout ratio of 40-50% of net earnings in the past couple of years, which assures long-term shareholders of a decent yield.
