How do GVT fare in the business

Financial Hightlights
Key Profit and Loss

The loss in FY2015 is due to low production volume as GVT is fulfilling the audit and accreditation process to be an approved vendor and to clear first articles inspections of certain new customers and products. FY2016 GVT ramp up their production causing the gross profit to increase.

GVT is listing at PE ration of around 11.2 PE and $0.078 NAV which is quite expensive compare market cap to equity.

What is good about GVT

  • Good range of products from small high-precision components to large structural components.
  • 10-year agreement with SICO Technology GmbH and Sico Asia Quartz Pte Ltd to build up quartz and ceramic machining capabilities which not much competitions in the market with the knowledge.
  • Track record in optimizing operations, implementing strategic plans and creating shareholder value
  • Losses in FY 2015, other than that YoY is making profit and new components are in production for better margin.

What is not so good about GVT

  • Small pool of major customers and they accounted for an aggregate of 78.7%, 92.3%, 89.7% and 94.8% FY2015, FY2016, FY2017 and HY2018 respectively.
  • Raw material prices for aluminium and stainless steel fluctuate and will have a significate impact on P&L.


At an expensive listing price, I feel that It’s not worth to invest and the risk of raw materials supply and pricing. The profit margin might not be as current and might see a big drop compare to current profit margin.
