Powermatic Data Systems has long been a darling of some value investors. The stock's undervaluation has been primarily owing to

1) its freehold investment property that has appreciated,
2) its cashpile (with zero debt) and
3) its growing wireless connectivity business.


Basically, its $35 million of cash and the $35 million market value of the property (as of end-FY19) add up to the current market cap of the company.

So, the market has ascribed zero value to its thriving operating business, which generated $7 million net profit in FY19 on $21 million of revenue.

In addition, the Board announced that it is reviewing the capital structure of the Company (including options relating to the Company’s property at No. 7 and 9 Harrison Road Singapore 369650 / 369651) which may or may not involve a capital reduction.

The Company has engaged professionals to advise the Board on the review.

"The review is still ongoing and is at a preliminary stage, and the Company has not made any decision with respect to, and has not entered into any agreement for, any possible transaction, at this juncture."
