The trick is face value is used as the baseline

UMNO is using FACE VALUE to calculate equity ownership to make sure it’s under estimate for bumi actual equity ownership.

Therefore, bumi equity ownerhsip will below 30% for another 50 year to justify NEP for bumi. I think it’s fair for bumi graduates to receive RM300 per month as per 1972’s salary scheme to justify face value methodology used (abused) by UMNO.

The reality is bumiputra equity ownership already more than 45% with the market value methodology, a universal standard used by all countries except Bolehland.

Bumi equity ownership rose to 23%: Najib

KUALA LUMPUR, April 23 (Bernama) — Bumiputra equity ownership rose to 23.09 per cent worth RM167.7 billion in 2010, up from 21.9 per cent worth 27.4 billion in 2008, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today.

He also announced the collaboration of the Unit Peneraju Agenda Bumiputra (TERAJU) with two companies under the TeraS programme — Ahmad Zaki Resources Bhd and MITC Ancasa Hotel (M) Sdn Bhd — which will see the award of supply contracts worth RM500 million to bumiputra firms in two years.

Najib, who is also Finance Minister, attributed the increase in bumiputra equity ownership to the implementation of policies that continue the bumiputra development agenda.

These policies had enlarged the role of bumiputra institutions such as the Pilgrims Fund Board (Tabung Haji), Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (LTAT) and Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB).

“All this has helped to bring about the very good increase in bumiputra equity ownership, and we also see the increasing capability of bumiputra firms which has also contributed to the rising percentage of bumiputra companies,” he told reporters after chairing a two-hour meeting of the Bumiputra Agenda Action Council here today.

On the possibility of achieving the target of 30 per cent bumiputra equity by 2020, Najib said it would depend on several factors including the prevailing domestic and foreign economic conditions and climate.

“According to our analysis, if the economy can grow like in the last one or two years and we can maintain this momentum, there is a good chance, Insya Allah (God willing), that the 30 per cent can be achieved by 2020,” he said.

The rise in equity ownership in 2010 is based on the total equity amounting to RM726.4 billion in that year compared to RM581.8 billion in 2008, he said.

Najib said the figure includes ownership by individuals, institutions with bumiputra interest such as Tabung Haji and LTAT, and trust agencies mandated by the government to increase bumiputra involvement in the economy such as PNB, Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Bhd (PUNB), Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) and State Economic Development Corporations.

The prime minister said 130 bumiputra companies have been identified under the TeraS programme and the collaboration between TERAJU and Ahmad Zaki as well as MITC Ancasa under the programme will create more business opportunities for smaller bumiputra firms in their quest to become bumiputra corporate giants in future.

Under the collaboration, Ahmad Zaki will develop a supply chain in the construction industry and offer supply contracts worth RM500 million, while MITC Ancasa Hotel will invest RM100 million over a three-year period to aggressively expand its business and create business opportunities for other bumiputra companies in the halal, logistics, cultural performances and other sectors.

Meanwhile, the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) in a separate statement said the the highest bumiputra equity ownership was in the finance, insurance and takaful sectors, which grew from 37.56 per cent of these sectors in 2009 to 38.97 per cent in 2010.

Bumiputra equity ownership in these sectors rose 22.5 per cent by value from RM53.35 billion in 2009 to RM65.37 billion in 2010.

Most bumiputra firms are in the wholesale and retail sector.

“Dr Doom” Nouriel Roubini’s strategic research firm (RGE) has reported that Malaysia is one of the most vulnerable Asian economies should a “perfect storm” of a disorderly debt default in Europe, a slowdown in China and the US, and rising tensions in the Middle East materialise.

Dr Doom who predicted the collapse of the US housing market and the 2008 global financial crisis, said that Malaysia had the highest exposure to a pullout of capital as its eurozone and US bank claims amount to more than 25% of GDP. RGE also said Malaysia was among the lowest ranked in terms of monetary and fiscal capacity to respond to a crisis, coming in ahead of only Thailand, Japan and Indonesia.

RGE said that while Malaysian government revenues have increased, the hole in its finances could grow due to “populist” spending and an expected cut in Petronas’ dividends. It added that it expects Bank Negara to cut interest rates to 2.5 % by the end of 2013 to deal with slowing growth in Europe and China.

While government debt — currently at about 54% of GDP, and the second highest in Asia — has not significantly impacted the country and its credit standing so far, the volatile nature of global markets may cause sentiment to turn with little warning.

The federal government’s domestic debt almost doubled in the space of less than five years — from RM247 billion in 2007 to an estimated RM421 billion in 2011 — far outpacing its revenues which only grew 31 per cent or from RM140 billion to RM183 billion during the same period.

When the 30% target can never be achieved, we will get such response:

Tredy says:

Bumi equity is forever low among the Malays because they never believe in having assets, live for today and spend all their liquid cash for instant pleasures, eg. Having four wives, knowing that it’s 1melayu government will support them indefinitely or bail them out of any financial trouble.

Gopal Raj Kumar says:

Agreed with you. Those Felda folks gets RM15K per family, but no more dividends thereafter after listing. They like to live on tomorrow’s money and Najib is quick to capitalise on the opportunity before PRU13.

Zain says:

That is how Umno deceive the malays for votes?

Speedy Gonzalez says:

history revisit : resignation of lim teik ghee 5-6 years ago as he does not agree with equity face value calculation.

Speedy Gonzalez says:

Lim Teik Ghee got to resign for challenging the authority about the equity %.

so now those cari makan civilians dare not speak out about the truth.

may be Kementerian Kewangan don’t know mathematical equations because they only know UMNO = $$$$
