Maybank Investment Bank Issues 4 New Call Warrants And 4 New Put Warrants
Kuala Lumpur, 10 September 2013 – Maybank Investment Bank Berhad (“Maybank Investment Bank”) is issuing four new European style cash-settled call and four new put warrants (“SW”) over ordinary shares of Kossan Rubber Industries Berhad (“KOSSAN”), Petronas Dagangan Berhad (“PETDAG”), Petronas Gas Berhad (“PETGAS”) and Supermax Corporation Berhad (“SUPERMX”). The warrants will be listed on Wednesday, 11 September 2013 with an issue size of 100 million each.
“The oil and gas sector has frequently been a topic of discussion for many investors and the current selection of underlying counters reflects this long standing interest. Recent events in the Middle East will potentially cause oil prices to rise even higher. The underlying counters in this tranche are sensitive to oil price fluctuations. Therefore, Maybank Investment Bank is now offering both call and put warrants to investors who have a directional view on these underlying companies. The call warrants offer investors with a bullish view the opportunity to participate on the upside of the underlying shares for a fraction of the price while the put warrants offer investors with the opportunity to gain should the underlying price falls”.
KOSSAN manufactures and sells rubber products. Through its subsidiaries, the Company also manufactures and trades latex examination gloves as well as fabricates and installs machinery. KOSSAN has been in the process of streamlining its manufacturing lines as well as increasing production capacity with the completion of three new plants. It also aims to become the market leader in manufacturing nitrile gloves. Maybank Investment Bank has maintained a buy call on KOSSAN as of 27 August 2013, with a target price of RM7.12.
SUPERMAX is an investment holding company whose subsidiaries manufacture, sell and export various types of latex gloves around the world.

Furthermore, their production lines have been refurbished and manufacture solely nitrile gloves.
PETDAG markets petroleum products and operates service stations domestically. The company also has operations in aviation fuelling at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and bunkering facilities at Westport. It also markets and distributes lubricants.
