Its YTD 6 months results were at almost breakeven, with a small profit of RMB 232,000.

What is interesting is that after its share consolidation of 10 shares to 1 share in Nov 2015, its theoretical ex-consolidation price which should be S$1.00, now has declined to S$0.68.

Its NAV per share based on its current equity and consolidated number of shares of about 
79.8 million is S$3.82.

The share price is now trading at 82 percent discount to its NAV!

Any private equity firm should be able to take over the company with S$55 million cash plus an attractive premium offer to all shareholders.

But not many know how to run Dukang's unique business in China. And the assumption is that its balance sheet numbers are fairly presented and reliable.

If the company manages to make consistent profits and pay dividends, this stock may be a value buy.

“The baijiu market is very different today as baijiu consumption and drinking habits have changed significantly. We have moved past the binge drinking era where expensive baijiu used to be downed in successive shots throughout business dinners. Today, younger generations are more inclined to drink sparingly during gatherings and embrace baijiu for its diverse and aromatic expressions and appreciate how it can in fact, be paired with up-scale Chinese cuisine.

“Retailed between RMB200 to RMB300 per bottle, Dukang No.1 is a high-end product to target the Chinese middle class swelling with young, affluent professionals while Dukang No.2 will appeal to the Millennial Generation with its small-volume packaging and lower proof as well as cheaper retail price between RMB20 to RMB30 per bottle.”

-- Zhou Tao, CEO of Dukang Distillers
