While 2019 was a positive year for emerging markets overall, Malaysian equities underperformed amid a confluence of macroeconomic and geopolitical factors. However, Franklin Templeton Emerging Market Equity’s Edward Pang and Ismar Izhar suggest there could be a mild recovery opportunity for equity investors in 2020, driven by an improving corporate earnings outlook.

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- This time, it might just work.Telenor ASA and Kuala Lumpur-based Axiata Group Bhd. are back at the negotiating table. Joining forces in South and Southeast Asia still makes sense for both carriers. Options including a mooted minority investment from Norway’s $27 billion telecoms heavyweight could be enough to get them started, with sales and spinoffs to follow.Talks for a potential deal resumed just four months after the parties scrapped discussions to create a combined entity with some 300 million customers in the region, Elffie Chew and Manuel Baigorri of Bloomberg News reported last week, citing people familiar with the matter. This time they may start small, with Telenor buying part of the nearly 37% stake held by Axiata’s largest shareholder, Malaysian sovereign wealth fund Khazanah Nasional Bhd.A partial deal isn’t the solution either carrier hoped for. It won’t bring any of the anticipated $5 billion in cost synergies from the previous structure, or much-needed scale. But it might just be a necessary detour.Last time, politics proved to be the undoing. Under the all-share combination laid out in May, Telenor would have held 56.5% of the combined entity. With most of the overlap in Malaysia and significant cuts planned, local politicians fretted over jobs. Telenor wasn’t paying a control premium either, some grumbled. Worse, Norway had months earlier banned imports of non-sustainable palm oil, hurting Southeast Asia’s exporters. Officials in Indonesia, a bigger market for Axiata than Malaysia in the third quarter, didn’t warm to the idea of government-controlled Telenor getting a foothold through the company.None of the financial pressures that brought the two together have gone away.Revenue is flatlining in Telenor’s home market, which it dominates, and in its Swedish fixed and mobile telecom operations. Growth is also stagnating in its Asian mobile businesses, which make up half the group’s revenue, especially in Malaysia and Thailand. Elsewhere, shrinking profit in Pakistan weighed on third-quarter earnings.Axiata, meanwhile, needs to invest in 5G technology and in its ability to cater for booming data and video-streaming demand. Moreover, Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad’s government has promised to reduce the role of the state in local business. Incumbent Telekom Malaysia Bhd., also part-owned by Khazanah, has been deemed strategic. Axiata hasn’t.The question then becomes, how to get the deal done. For Telenor to buy a minority holding in Axiata, which has a market value of about $9.5 billion, might just be a doable, if unorthodox, step to gain clout in the region.Assuming it takes a 20% to 30% stake, Telenor would be tying up $2 billion to $3 billion of cash, presumably at a manageable annual funding cost. That’s a reasonable bet on an attractive future option, not least given Axiata trades at a slight discount, in terms of enterprise value to Ebitda, to peers like Malaysian tycoon T. Ananda Krishnan’s Maxis Communications Bhd. Telenor would be making a public commitment to the Malaysian government too, putting cash on the table as opposed to its stock swap proposal the last time. Such a deal would keep at bay rival bidders eyeing up Axiata’s component parts, arguably worth more than the whole.The heavy role of state-linked government entities in Axiata should help eventual steps up, by simplifying the path to control. A slower pace might help get reluctant Indonesian officials onside, or exclude the business.Even a less bullish scenario could still see Axiata hiving off parts of its business into ventures with Telenor – say, its towers business, Edotco.The downside, of course, is that such partnerships often fall apart. Malaysia’s government is entering an uncertain period, with 94-year-old Mahathir reluctantly preparing to hand over power to a successor. If it all goes wrong, Telenor would become a forced seller of a significant stake in a state shareholder-heavy Malaysian entity.Ideally, Telenor wouldn’t proceed without, for example, an in-principle regulatory approval for it to eventually merge its wireless carrier, Digi, with Axiata’s Celcom.Telenor can’t afford to stand still. Axiata offers a risky but salutary remedy.

DAVOS: Jumeirah, the leading hotels and leisure group in the Middle East, is planning big developments in Saudi Arabia’s “mega-projects,” CEO Jose Silva told Arab News on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos.
“We must be in those locations, but I want to make sure we get the right ‘address.’ Jumeiah always wants to be among the top three sites on any location. If someone convinces me this is the right address, I will jump into it,” he said.
Silva made clear he was thinking primarily about the two big development on the Kingdom’s west coast — the NEOM metropolis and the Red Sea project further south along the coast. He is believed to be in contact with Saudi Arabian tourism authorities and potential partners in the Kingdom.
Silva also said that Jumeirah was keen to open hotels in Makkah and Madinah, which he called “preferred entry” points in the Kingdom. Work has already begun on two sites.
“It is very important for us to acquire the right assets and the right designers. Unless we control the architect, we will not do it. We have to be involved in the design process,” he said.
A big presence in Saudi Arabia would be part of the strategy of “going global” that Silva has advanced in his first two years a head of the UAE-based hotels, leisure and restaurants business, which is owned by the government
Last year, Jumeirah bought the Capri Palace on the eponymous Italian island, and is also involved in a major expansion plan in Asia, with six new projects underway in China, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Silva is also overseeing a $100 million renovation of the Carlton hotel in London’s Belgravia. Expansion via luxury hotel properties in other European capitals is also being considered.
In Dubai, he has brought in world-class managers to restaurants in the group’s flagship properties in Madinat and Burj Al Arab, with a clutch of “celebrity chefs” in place in restaurants there.
“We want to be the best brand for ‘destination dining’,” he said.

LONDON: Boeing’s new CEO has sent the aerospace giant back to the drawing board on proposals for a new mid-market aircraft, effectively shelving in their current form plans worth $15 billion-$20 billion that had been overtaken by the 737 MAX crisis.
A decision on whether to launch a New Midsize Airplane (NMA) seating 220-270 passengers, which seemed imminent barely a year ago, had already been postponed as Boeing gave all its attention to the grounding of the smaller 737 MAX after two fatal crashes.
But days after taking the helm with a mandate to lift Boeing out of its 10-month-old reputational crisis, CEO Dave Calhoun said the competitive playing field had changed.
“Since the first clean sheet of paper was taken to it, things have changed a bit ... the competitive playing field is a little different,” he told journalists on Wednesday.
“We’re going to start with a clean sheet of paper again; I’m looking forward to that,” Calhoun said.
He also spoke of a fresh approach to the market.
A Boeing spokesman said Calhoun had ordered a new study on what kind of aircraft was needed. New aircraft typically take 6-7 years or more to bring to market once a decision is made, though Boeing aims to shorten that in part through digital technology and new business models designed around the NMA.
Calhoun “has asked the team to do an assessment of the future market and what kind of airplane is needed to meet the future market,” spokesman Gordon Johndroe said.
Noting that the original assessments on the NMA were made about two and a half years ago, he said the new study would “build upon what has been learned ... in design and production.”
In further evidence of a change of pace, people familiar with the matter said a meeting between Boeing and a major potential supplier, originally scheduled for next week, had been abruptly canceled with no new date set.
That contrasts with the approach just weeks ago when Boeing was still presenting new details of the NMA to some airlines, including a working logo — “theNMA” — and details of an “advanced composite” structure, according to a slide seen by Reuters.
The NMA had been designed to address a slender gap between single-aisle workhorse jets like the 737 MAX and long-haul wide-body jets like the 787.
But most of the effort revolved around a new production system designed not only to support the NMA but to lay the groundwork for the next single-aisle aircraft after the 737 MAX.
Calhoun said he expected the MAX, whose return to service was delayed again earlier this week, to resume its previous place in the market and remain in service for a generation.
Traditionally toe-to-toe with Europe’s Airbus SE, Boeing has fallen behind in sales for the largest category of single-aisle planes, such as the 200-240-seat Airbus A321neo, which overlaps with the niche being targeted by the NMA.
By delaying a decision on the NMA, Boeing already risked losing the sweetest part of the market, especially after Airbus seized contracts with two major US airlines, analysts said.
Analysts have also questioned whether Boeing, facing costs equivalent to a new program to repair the MAX crisis, as well as delays on its large new 777X jet whose maiden flight is set for Friday, would have appetite for such a costly project now.
