PETALING JAYA: China-based XiDeLang Holdings Ltd’s share price closed unchanged at 25 sen yesterday, despite announcing a memorandum of collaboration (MoC) with another Chinese company, Yeli International Ltd, which will see it secure original design manufacturing (ODM) production orders of no less than 210 million renminbi (RM133.8 million) over two years through subsidiary HongPeng Fujian Shoes & Garments Co Ltd.
Year-to-date the company’s stock has increased 150%, compared with the FBM KLCI which has gained 8.3%.
XiDeLang is a rare performer among the group of China-based companies which have been underperforming in the local market. The company’s net profit for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017, more than doubled to RM3.755 million, on a 20% jump in revenue for the first three months, compared with the same quarter in the preceding year.
