Is this the end or a new beginning for Singapore Press Holdings?
The advertising industry used to be a simple one. Want an advertisement? Want some attention? Take out an ad in the Straits Times or relevant language-related paper and you could virtually guarantee some amounts of interest. I even remember scanning the classifieds section as a secondary school kid looking to earn some money during the holidays. Fast forward two decades — the rise of Google, Facebook, and a declining local interest in state affairs beyond headline centrepieces, and you have the current situation: Singapore Press Holdings’ (SPH) print media business is in terminal decline and not headed anywhere but down. Indeed, even Chairman Lee Boon Yang remarked multiple times during the extraordinary general meeting: ‘Investing more resources into SPH’s print media b

Anonymous Letter Sent to NUS and My Response
By Mak Yuen Teen A few days ago, I was informed by my Dean about an anonymous letter that was sent to the NUS President. The letter is posted below and my response follows. I would like to state that even though the anonymous letter refers to posts I had made relating to the SPH EGM to consider the spin-off of SPH Media to the new CLG, I do not believe that this letter came from anyone at SPH.

A week of familiar and unfamiliar developments
The familiar: The STI first regained 3,100 but quickly lost it The unfamiliar: Instead of consecutive all-time highs, Wall St recorded consecutive falls Investors in US stocks concerned about Fed tapering and slowing economy STI registered a gain of 15 points or 0.5% at 3,098.8 over the week Hongkong Land’s US$500m buyback plan boosted the stock Maybank Kim Eng raised STI target from 3,537 to 3,650. First, the familiar The week that just passed had a familiar look to it, with the Straits Times Index first regaining the 3,100 level on Monday before losing it soon afterwards, a repetition of a trading pattern that has played out over the past three consecutive weeks.

Meetings Like SPH EGM Disenfranchise Shareholders
Yesterday, I posted about my experience attending the virtual SPH EGM. I faced some technical issues and was only able to get in 15 minutes after the meeting started – more than 45 minutes after I started the process of getting the login link. This morning, a SPH shareholder wrote to me saying he felt that the restructuring was a done deal partly because of the impediments shareholders face. Source

Historic Moment for Singapore Press Holdings Group- Goodbye to Media and Press Business!
What an exciting day it has been for the shareholders and management of Singapore Press Holdings (“SPH”). The results of the EGM has finally been announced. Goodbye to Media segment….what a historic moment indeed for SPH milestone! Despite seemingly fierce resistance put up by the minority retail investors asking that Media business be either sold to an interested party or to simply just shut down the media business [instead of paying S$80Mil in cash and other assets for transfer over to the newly formed Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG)], the objections turned out to be only pinpricks in the vast ocean. An overwhelming 97.6% of shareholders voted “Yes” for the first resolution to transfer the Media business out to the CLG while 97.5% voted “Yes” for the second resolution to

Singapore Press Holdings- EGM And D-Day For The Fate Of Media Business
Singapore Press Holdings ("SPH") will hold its EGM this afternoon (10th September 2021) at 2.30pm. Finally, the much anticipated EGM will be convened. Will Media business be successfully transferred out of SPH? Will the special resolution on a new constitution be also approved by more than 75% of shareholders in order to be eligible for the Keppel Corp buyout? If it goes through, will SPH share price finally hit S$2 per share or will it plunge dramatically by end of the day or next week due to the deal falling apart?Updates as of 10 September 2021 (5pm)-Results of SPH EGM:Historic Moment for Singapore Press Holdings Group- Goodbye to Media and Press Business!- 10 Sep 2021Previous posts on SPH:1. SPH Media Spin Off EGM- Retail Investors Should Be More Pro-Active To Exercise Their

Press Statement: Outcome of the SPH shareholders’ vote today
The overwhelming support for the two resolutions today paves the way for SPH shareholders to now consider the privatisation proposal of SPH by Keppel Corp. I am confident that the shareholders of SPH will do what is good for them. It is important for them to carefully consider the Keppel proposal and vote.

Commentary: SPH’s media demerger: important for shareholders to vote
This is the original commentary by SIAS, unedited version from The Business Times, The Straits Times and Lianhe Zaobao publications on 06 September 2021 Before the end of this year, shareholders of Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) will have to decide on the fate of their company, once a prominent blue chip but one that has now fallen on difficult times, mainly because of a structural decline in its media advertisement revenue. This decline has been reflected in the company’s shares; the price having fallen from the S$4 level in 2014 to around S$1 in November 2020 despite the company having diversified into other non-media areas like property, aged care provision and student accommodation. Indeed, the fact that SPH was removed from its own benchmark blue chip Straits Times Index in June las

STI ended flat for week, again decoupled from Wall St
The Straits Times Index added just 3 points at 3,083.85; Wall St’s all-time highs had little or no effect here; Daily turnover sank after Tuesday’s portfolio rebalancing; Poor Friday US jobs report could be positive for US stocks; Jardine group among STI’s worst performers; Yangzijiang is the STI’s best performer; SGX announced its SPAC listing rules; Proxy adviser for SPH’s restructuring plan said benefits outweigh costs In an uninspiring week, 3 features stood out The week that just passed was notable for three reasons, two relating to the local market and the third to Wall Street. The first was that the local market’s decoupling from Wall Street that started several weeks ago appeared to continue last week, and the second was that the large, mid-week plunge in the Straits

11 Fitness Studios (HIIT, Pilates, Spin) for Every Budget With Free or Discounted First-Timer Trials

Now that gyms and fitness studios have opened up, you can burn off the fats and flab with different fitness classes. If you are someone who is bored of jogging and swimming, it’s a good time to zest up your active lifestyle with new workouts such as high intensity interval training (HIIT), Yoga, Pilates, Spinning, Jumping, and Boxing. Trying out a new workout doesn’t have to be expensive. The best part about being a first-timer is the free or discounted trials available.

Here’s How The Stocks Within The Singapore’s Straits Times Index (STI) Have Changed Since 1998
With a history dating back to 1966, the Straits Times Index (STI) was originally coined as the Straits Industrial Index. After 30-odd years, the Straits Industrial Index was eventually succeeded by Straits Times Index on 31 August 1998. The reason for changing the index was to allow the index to cover more sectors and properly reflect the daily trading activities of stocks on SGX (or then-Stock Exchange of Singapore). Established by SPH, SGX and FTSE Russell, the index is reviewed on a semi-annual basis. Companies can be removed and added to the index based on their market capitalisation changes. Since STI’s official inception, the index has undergone several changes. The most recent major movement would be the replacement of SPH with Mapletree Industrial Trust on June 2020. Here, we com

Monthly wrap for August 2021: Decoupled from Wall St, the STI lost 3.5%, falling below 3,200 and 3,100 to 6-month low
STI shed 111 points to six-month low of 3,055.05 in August; Wall St’s all-time highs and optimism had little impact here; US market continued to bank on “transitory’’ inflation and “Goldilocks’’ scenario, although wary of Fed’s tapering; Delta variant was a concern throughout the month; Keppel’s bid to take SPH private was main corporate development Not a good month for the STI as it first lost 3,200 then 3,100 At the risk of stating the obvious, August was not particularly memorable as far as the local stock market was concerned as the Straits Times Index recorded a 111-points or 3.5% loss at 3,055.05. Technically inclined observers would know that the index had actually risen above 3,200 during the month but lost this mark in the second week. By the third and fourth

SPH Media Spin Off EGM- Retail Investors Should Be More Pro-Active To Exercise Their Voting Rights
I thought that it is a no-brainer to agree to the transfer of Media business out of SPH and into the newly created CLG entity. Media is a loss making business. Existing shareholders need to bite the bullet and agree to pay the divorce fees to get rid of the Media segment. It is only with the media business out of SPH that we can move on to the next stage of a wider corporate action options being made available to sell of the property business of SPH to other interested 3rd parties. 1. Media still making losses despite 2 rounds of staff cutting to save reduce labour cost.Once the traditional media economic moat is being disrupted by Facebook, google etc, there is no point in trying to keep doing "headcount restructuring". SPH already went through 2 rounds. There is a limit that can be
