BJCHI

Roadshow end-Feb — BJCHI is preparing for a roadshow for big local institutional investors on 27-28 February 2014, after they expressed interest in its overseas business. It expects to get a project of Bt2bn in Australia. Its current backlog is Bt5bn with gross margin of 40%. It will pay a DPS of Bt2.2. (Khao Hoon, 25/2/14)
