(吉隆坡15日讯)大马糖厂正与政府商讨再度调涨每公斤白糖价格29仙,从而确保该公司今年的盈利。马来亚糖厂(MSM,5202,主要板消费)指出,目前仍与政府在磋商,

“我们还在跟政府接洽白糖事宜,但我们知道政府在执行方面有难处。对我而言,我们尝试与政府密切合作。”

联邦土地发展局集团首席执行员拿督查卡里亚阿瑟今日在年度股东大会后指出,截至今年3月1日,白糖零售价从每公斤2.84令吉,涨11仙至2.95令吉。距离马来亚糖厂之前所要求的40仙涨幅,仍有29仙落差。

“公司需要从市场上,取回应有的29仙。”

据《光华日报》报道,联邦土地发展局集团首席执行员拿督查卡里亚阿瑟说,随着原糖价格出现波动,加上令吉汇率的表现,使得今年成为极具挑战的一年。

“基于原糖价格波动,政府应调涨每公斤的售价40仙。”

 

他今日出席该公司旗下白糖制造臂膀MSM大马控股有限公司的常年大会后,对记者这么说。

尽管MSM早前要求白糖每公斤售价涨40仙,但政府已于今年3月,调涨本地白糖每公斤的售价11仙,即从2令吉84仙增至2令吉95仙。

“我们还在和政府商讨,我们理应获得每公斤29仙的涨幅,虽然我们都知道政府很难做到这一点。”

“不过,我们非常幸运,相较于去年11及12月,原糖价格已从每磅0.22美元降至目前的0.155美元,如果原糖价格攀升,对我们而言非常艰辛。”

 

查卡里亚阿瑟也提到MSM坐落在柔佛丹绒冷刹提炼厂的兴建计划,预料该厂可在2018年首个季度开始运作,这是基于该厂已经完成45%的工程进度衡量出来的时间表。他说,目前该公司的白糖仅出口至中东国家和北非。一旦这个提炼厂投入运作后,将能帮助该公司拓展业务,尤其是把产品出口至新加坡和印尼。

另外,查卡里亚阿瑟还特别重申,大马的白糖价格依然是东盟区域内最低的。即使是原糖和白糖的生产国,我们的邻国泰国,白糖的售价都比我国还高!

随着糖王郭鹤年退出大马白糖市场之后,这已经是不知道第几轮涨价了!吊诡的是,糖王郭鹤年操控本地白糖市场的时候,白糖每公斤售价才区区RM1.30都能取得丰硕的盈利,为何5年前被纳吉罗斯玛指示《土著精英企业家》赛莫达强制收购之后,白糖价格至少调帐了超过5轮,零售价也已经从每公斤RM1.30冲高到了每公斤RM2.95,却还是年年高喊赚不够?

 

这真的让老百姓很还念糖王还在马来西亚白糖市场的日子。

MSM in talks to raise sugar price by 29 sen

 

KUALA LUMPUR: MSM Malaysia Holdings Bhd is still in talks with the government to increase the local sugar price by a further 29 sen per kg to ensure the company’s profitability this year.

Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) Group president and CEO Zakaria Arshad said the volatility in raw sugar prices, coupled with the ringgit performance, had made this year a very challenging one.

“Given the volatility in raw sugar prices, the government should increase the selling price by 40 sen per kg,” he told reporters after MSM Malaysia’s annual general meeting here today.

MSM, a 51%-owned unit of FGV, is Malaysia’s leading refined sugar producer.

The government increased the local sugar price by 11 sen per kg to RM2.95 per kg on March 1, although MSM had earlier asked for a 40 sen increase.

“We are still in talks with the government to have the 29 sen per kg that we are supposed to get, but we also know that the government has its difficulty with that.

 

“However, we are lucky that the raw sugar price has reduced to US$0.155 per pound now, compared with the US$0.22 per pound recorded in November and December last year.

“If the raw sugar price increases, it will be very difficult for us,” he said.

He reiterated that Malaysia’s sugar price was among the lowest in the Asean region.

“Even Thailand, which is a raw sugar and sugar producer, is selling the product at a higher rate than us,” he said.

On MSM’s sugar refinery in Tanjung Langsat, Zakaria said the plant, which is 45% complete, was expected to begin its operation in the first quarter of 2018.

“The production at the plant would enable us to expand our export destinations to Singapore and Indonesia,” he said, adding that the company currently exports its products to Middle Eastearn countries and North Africa.

He said so far, the refinery had utilised RM400 million out of the total US$259 million capital expenditure set aside last year.

“We will keep the construction within the budget,” he said.

The Tanjung Langsat sugar refinery is MSM’s third processing facility in Malaysia with an annual capacity of one million tonnes.

The other two sugar refineries are in Prai, Penang, which is able to process 3,000 tonnes per day, and in Chuping, Perlis, which has a daily capacity of 600 tonnes.
