Hanwell has been trading below book value. Is it a good investment for long term?

Hanwell Holdings also own 63.95% of Tat Seng Pkg T12 which is listed in SGX. The company reported revenue of SGD 163,205,000 for the period of first 6 months.
The group’s reported Revenue of S$377 million and S$16 million net profit for end 3rd quarter and an increase of 24.6% YoY.
Hanwell Holdings gearing is at 32.70% and debt S$86 million. I personally feel that it’s on the high side and should be worrying. The company is currently trading at S$0.22, the NAV is S$0.48. The company is trading at a discount of 55%
Hanwell Holdings is an undervalued stock from my point of view, i believe it is worth more than current market price. Hope 4th Quarter results will be flying color and investors faith will be back.
