Uncle Lee, expect some fair competition from Malaya Super center!

It will make Singapore even more efficient as it will keep the BUREACRATs busy and more hawk eyed!

Some political sense rejunevation is needed in Singapore so that Singaporean maturation would be apace with cultural changes in Malaya!

Such competition will ensure the continued PROSPERITY and SUCCESS in Singapore! (and more innovation)

The gaming industry in Malaya!

The gaming industry in Malaya is worth approximately Rmb22 - 25 billion! (or 2% of the Malayan economy)

The share of the industry is share between 6 major companies. These are
(approximate guestimates)
(1) Magnum Corporation Berhad. - Rmb4 billion turnover  15% margin
(2) Berjaya Sports Toto Berhad. - Rmb6 billion turnover 20% margin
(3) Pan Malaysian Berhad. - Rmb4 billion turnover 10% margin
(4) Resorts Berhad. - Rmb7 billion turnover 40% margin
(5) Turf clubs of Penang, Ipoh and Selangor.
(6) Star Cruise Plc.

Gosh......Singapore Inc. would have just suckered the largest of the Hap Seng gaming companies of its next 10 years of profits!

Interesting reallignment of business interest!

Look at the recent corporate moves!

The Kuok Family has moved all assets to Singapore bourse.
ie. Singapore now has its own Oleochemical giant......Wilmar a US$2.7 billion reorganization.

This is on the back of reorganization of Riau oleochemical business under Synergy banner in Kuala Lumpur bourse! .....and approximately US$8.8 billion company!

Slowly we see all the reorganizations under the banner of Hai San, Riau, Hap Seng.........interesting!

It's clear now!

Gaming Industry in the Nanyang should be more accurate!

The GNP of the region....

Guandong   US$300 billion
Hong Kong  US$180 billion
Malaya          US$150 billion
Singapore    US$125 billion
Thailand       US$180 billion              Total GNP = US$ 935 billion.

2% of GNP comes from gaming business!

This means a business of at least  US$18.7 billion.

Shared between....

(1) Turf clubs of Hong Kong, Penang, Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore!
(2) Number games of Singapore pools, Magnum, Toto, Pan Malayan lotteries.
(3) Gaming hall of casino's of what used to be only Genting and Mr. Ho's TDC.....and now include new member including Galaxy, Las Vegas Sands, Harrahs! - approximately US$ 8 billion now mostly in Macao and Genting!
(4) Cruise Ship gambling dominated by Star Cruise and other smaller players! Approximate sales is US$ 600 million by Star Cruise with bases in Hong Kong, Port Klang and Singapore! business touches US$ 1 billion!

New boy on the block, Singapore wishes a piece of the US$ 3.7 bil (Las Vegas Sands) + Genting's Sentosa Resort at US$2.0 billion.....or US$5.7 billion..

or about 1/3 of the industry!
