39 Annual Report 2007


Nature of Business

- A single detached house – six to seven months - One row of town house/home office – seven to eight months - A condominium – eleven to twenty months Production policy Regarding production, the Company has its policy to increase or decrease the production capacity in compliance with housing needs of customers for each project. Since the Company employs contractors, if the customers of each project need more living units, the Company can increase production capacity by employing more contractors in order to meet the customers’ needs. Concentrating on the quality control of construction to be at the same standard, the Company has quality control policy to inspect the quality as follows. (1) Set construction and material standard for contractors. (2) Arrange meeting with contractors regarding construction plan before construction phase. (3) Appoint project engineers and a project manager for each project to monitor construction plan and incoming inspection of contractors. (4) Set up quality control team to inspect all construction to be compliance with specified standards. Land buying Land is a significant factor in project development and construction because it becomes 40-50 percent of total cost. Therefore, the Company’s policy of buying land concentrates on potential land that can be developed instantly. Many consideration factors are also taken into account such as potential of location, land price, city plan, law enforcement, growth trend of living location, city development and expansion, and competitors. Channels for buying land are land agents, land owners and the Company’s employees. For the maximum efficiency, before buying land, the Company conducts feasibility study and reports it to the management as a reference data for purchase approval. Selecting and employing contractors The Company employs contractors to construct housing units under the supervision of the Company’s project engineers and a project manager who are responsible to monitor and control the quality of construction to be in compliance with the construction plan and specified standards. In recruiting a new contractor, the Company considers the contractor’s experience, portfolio, previous work quality, and financial position. The Company collects information of contractors used to work for the Company in the database. Such information includes work details, work performance and related data for future consideration of a new project’s contractor. At present the Company connects with 200 contractors.

Note: Major contractor refers to a contractor whose proportion of construction value is more than 10 percent of total construction and material value.

In 2005 and 2006, none of contractors had proportion of construction value higher than 10 percent of the total construction and material value. In 2007, there was one contractor having proportion of construction value higher than 10 percent of the total construction and material value. It was the contractor for the Complete Rajchaprarop, which has been opened and constructed in 2007. Since the value of this condominium project is high, then the proportion of construction value is higher than 10 percent of the total construction and material value. Buying construction materials and furnishings The Company set top priority of material quality. Therefore, befittingness, good quality and standard are major factors of purchasing of construction and finishing materials. Price will then later consider as reference contributor. Major construction materials include cement, steel, roof truss, roof-tile, ceramic tile, gypsum board, brick, floor panel and bored pile. Purchasing of construction materials and furnishings can be divided into two major practices as following. (1) Construction materials and finishing supplied by contractors Since the Company employs the contractors for construction, some materials of each contract work will be provided and purchased by such contractors. Materials and their properties must be in good quality and standard as described in the contract. (2) Construction materials and furnishings supplied by the Company Most of construction materials and finishing provided by the Company are those being used in large quantity or required to be order with particular distributor that needs time for delivery. Such operation enables the Company to control cost in the budget and decrease contractors’ obligation to supply and purchase themselves. At present, the Company purchase construction materials and furnishings from 150 internal distributors. Before ordering each material and furnishing, the Company estimates total quantity needed for that project and then purchase at the estimated amount. However, such product will be delivered and charged time by time at actual needed quantity. In 2005-2007, none of purchase proportion of construction materials and furnishings of any main distributor was higher than 10 percent of total construction and material value. 41 Annual Report 2007


Risk Factors


Risk Factors

Prinsiri Public Company Limited values risk management in business operation. The Company established a risk management policy in each department. All directors, management teams and employees have to follow the policy. The Risk Management Committee is also appointed to monitor overall Company risks. An Internal Audit unit will inspect and assess internal controls on a quarterly. The result will be directly reported to the Audit Committee. This is undertaken to insure that the Company can achieve its goals efficiently. Risk factors reported in the 2007 annual report are those evaluated from current situation. There may be unknown risks at present or factors that the Company considers as unrelated risks. Information involving economic conditions or government policies is obtained from government agencies and reliable sources. The Company did not inspect such data. Public investors should consider it carefully. Risk factors of the Company are as follows. Risk from Fluctuation of Construction Cost Construction materials are major raw materials for project development. Such products are subjected to change according to increase of fuel. Not only cost of construction materials related to petroleum increases but others also do through transportation charges. Meanwhile selling price cannot be adjusted to reflect the actual construction cost. If the Company increases the product price, it may affect on sale volume of housing units. Therefore, volatility of construction materials’ price may impact on construction cost and result in profitability of the Company. However, regarding materials provided by contractors, the lump sum contract includes cost of construction and such materials. For those materials supplied by the Company, since the Company has many projects in construction, then it maintains quite high advantage in negotiation with suppliers. Hence, the Company can control cost of materials by planning construction and estimating quantity of each material for the whole project and order procurement according to the estimation through its subsidiaries. Risk from Building Pre-built The Company and subsidiaries have a policy to develop for-sale housing with land by building pre-built before offering to customers. The policy includes the development of condominium project which will be transferred ownership when the construction of the whole project is completed. As a result, customers do not require paying down payment which normally the Company can use that received payment as cash flow during construction. In addition, if there is a factor influencing buying decision of prospects, the pre-built then may not be sold or slowly sold out. Then the Company will have high inventory cost. That will also affect on liquidity and profitability of the Company. However, the Company has policy to minimize impact from those related factors and to ensure that the products meet customers’ needs as much as possible. Then the Company conducts researches and

45 Annual Report 2007


Risk Factors

studies on consumer behavior before develops a project. Also, the construction plan is designed to correspond to the quantity of sale. The project is developed phase by phase. Each active project consists of pre-built and semi pre-built houses. In addition, sale promotion is used continuously. Then the Company ensures that such effect will decrease at some level. Risk from land procurement for future project development The Company has no policy to accumulate a large amount of land bank for it does not want to have financial cost burden. The Company would only purchase a piece of land after a careful study of the potential for project development. Therefore, the rapid growth of the real estate development industry may result in a risk due to the increasing in land price. The Company might not be able to buy a land in wanted location. That would result in higher total cost or unavailability of land for development. However, the Company planned for land procurement in advance according to individual year of development projects. Then there was adequate time to search for new potential land for the future project development at reasonable price. Moreover, the Company has continuously had land brokers to search for land in appropriated location with reasonable price. Risk from major shareholders of the Company that is more than 75 percent As at 31 December 2007, the major shareholder of the Company, is the Kovitchindachai family, whose share holding is 754,551,871 or 75.08 percent of total registered capital. Holding more than 75 percent of total shares, the major shareholders control the majority vote of the shareholders’ meeting. Therefore, public investors may confront the risk from the inability to monitor and to balance the major shareholder group on agendas that require the majority vote from the shareholders’ meeting. In addition, although other shareholders may see an opportunity to increase commercial value, the Company is unable to be taken over without agreement from these major shareholders. However, the Company appointed five people from the third party to be independent directors. An Audit Committee was also appointed to balance management control.

Industry trend and future competition Since national circumstances including politics, economics and society become less intense and the current government receives trust from other countries, it is expected that economics in 2008 will be better than the previous year. The real estate industry should benefit from this improvement and has good trend. However, many problems regarding politics, economics and society still exist. Therefore, if there are fluctuations of those factors, economic recess will occur and directly affect on growth of the industry and real estate market as well. The industry trend and competition of real estate in 2008 can be summarized as followings. (1) Investment of mega projects There is investment in many mega projects, namely, many routes of sky train. This is a positive factor in overall. It also promote expansion of city communities and housing area. (2) Accumulated supply The number of accumulated housing supply has increased since the beginning of 2005. Real estate developers have to be cautious considering this fact. Location and price range of single detached houses and townhouses are of concern to all developers. (3) Good trend of condominium demand Increase of petrol price encourages buyers to be interested in living in condominiums, especially those located in the city. (4) High competition among developers Competition among real estate developers is higher. Increase of construction cost provides big companies some advantages because they can control the cost better than smaller developers do. Small and medium real estate developers may face more difficulties in market competition. Annual Report 2007

Competition in the housing development sector became more serious than the previous year. Many developers set their selling prices in 2007 lower than that in 2006. That was because purchasers had lower budget and the entrepreneurs want to encourage the target group to buy their products in recession period. Under negative impact of many related factors and increase cost of construction materials in 2007, the Company, as one of real estate developers, could not avoid from such difficulties. Major revenue of the Company or more than 95 percent of revenue comes from property sales.

The ratio of gross profit was 23.32 percent. In 2007, the Company did not have revenue from selling condominium because the new projects were opened and have been under construction. Those four projects are the Complete Naratiwasrajchanakarin, the Complete Rajchaprarop, the Pulse Phaholyothin 37, and Smart Condo Rama II. Regarding the net profit margin of the Company, in 2007 it was 2.99 percent which dropped from 15.13 percent in 2006. The decrease of net profit margin was caused by many new projects opened in 2007. The total worth of those projects was Baht 12,350 million, increased 80 percent from 2006. Therefore, the Company had higher costs of sales and administration. According to the accounting standards, such expenses could not recognized along with the future realized revenue.

The increase of revenue from selling of single detached house/semi detached house for middle market in 2006 was a result of expansion in real estate industry, especially in housing sector.

The demand of these products has gradually increased. The Company received the first revenue from selling property of condominium in 2006. Since the number of customers demanding housing in form of condominium has gradually increased, the Company has developed condominium projects to meet such demand. The first and only one condominium project in 2006 named the Pulse Condominium Ladprao 44, 8 stories of 202 units, located in 1-2-0 rai area in Ladprao 44. The project values Baht 325.25 million. This project was to finish construction before selling. Therefore in 2006 the Company sold the units and could transfer ownership as well as recognized revenue in the same year. In 2007, the Company did not have revenue from selling condominium because most of the Pulse Condominium Ladprao 44’s units were transferred and the revenue was recognized in 2006. In addition the new opened condominium projects have been under construction. Those four projects are the Complete Naratiwasrajchanakarin, the Complete Rajchaprarop, the Pulse Phaholyothin 37, and Smart Condo Rama II.

Therefore, the subsidiary could sell more construction materials to the Company’s contractors. It decreased in 2007 because of consolidated financial statements. In 2007, Growed Yotha Group Company Limited sold most of its goods to the Company and subsidiaries. In addition to revenue from selling property and revenue from selling goods, the Company and subsidiaries have revenue from waived deposit, which incurred when the customers did not make buying contract at due time, left down payment, which some customers paid down installments and then stopped without notice or contacting, and penalty of late construction paid by the Company’s contractors.

Cost of Sales Cost of sales for real estate consists of land cost, developing cost, construction cost, related cost of project and paid interest. The Company and subsidiaries had cost of sales of Baht 1,548.09 million in 2005, Baht 1,926.62 million in 2006 and Baht 1,935.38 million in 2007, representing 69.08 percent, 67.30 percent and 76.68 percent of revenue from selling property respectively. The ratio between costs of sales to revenue from selling property has progressively decreased because of following reasons. (1) Good land for project development with reasonable price Since plot of land plays major role in project development and construction. It normally 40 – 50 percent of total product cost. The Company has policy to purchase only land with good potential that can be developed at once. Factors considered in buying consists of location, cost of land, city plan, stipulation of laws, trend of housing expansion, development plan, city expansion, competitors and etc. The Company will conduct feasibility study every time before making decision in order to have sufficient information for consideration of good land and good price. 2) Effective management of construction cost control The Company manages cost control through procedures such as developing construction technique and technology, having Growed Yotha Group Company Limited (the Company’s subsidiary) as a Company’s business unit to control construction material cost for the Company’s developing projects. The subsidiary also serves as contractor and construction material supplier for the Company and the Company’s contractors. Although in 2007, the Company and subsidiaries could control land cost, developing cost, construction cost, related cost of project and paid interest to be similar to those in 2005 and 2006, the Company faced difficulties from slow growth of real estate market in 2007 affecting on severe competition in housing sector. Many developers set their product price in 2007 lower than that in 2006 because prospects had lower buying budget and they wanted to encourage customers to buy during the recession period. As a result, the Company and subsidiaries had to set the selling price in 2007 lower than that in 2006. Then the ratio of cost of sales to revenue from selling goods in 2007 increased as well. The cost of sales incurred from Growed Yotha Group Company Limited, the Company’s subsidiary, was construction materials sold to all contractors of the Company. In 2005, 2006 and 2007, the company had cost of sales of Baht 64.10 million, Baht 75.00 million and Baht 54.55 million respectively, representing 89.78 percent, 87.14 percent and 88.52 percent of revenue from selling goods respectively. The ratio of cost of sales to revenue from selling goods slightly decreased in 2006 and increased in 2007 because the Company had number of ongoing projects and consecutive period. Then the subsidiaries of the Company had quite high power in negotiation with building material suppliers. Selling and administrative expenses In 2005, 2006 and 2007 the Company and subsidiaries had cost of selling and administrative expenses of Baht 262.31 million, Baht 356.69 million, and Baht 461.36 million respectively. It increased 35.98 percent and 29.34 percent respectively. The cost of selling and administrative expenses increased each year because major expenses of employee’s salary and bonus increased.

That was because the Company and subsidiaries opened many new projects in 2007, worth Baht 12,350 million, which increased 80 percent from 2006.

Analysis of Financial Position and Operation Results

Inventory of finished goods of the Company and subsidiaries can be divided to for sale house and construction materials. Regarding for sale house, the Company and subsidiaries stated to provide this finished housing since the end of 2006, valued of Baht 46.16 million. The inventory also came from the Company’s policy to finish construction before selling and at the end of that year, ownership could not be transferred or goods were not sold. Most of inventory was houses in long opening project such as Prinsiri Nuanchan, Prinsiri Nawamin, Prinyada Chamchan and Prinyada Theparak. The inventory as of the end of 2007 increased from that in 2006 at 70.76 percent. That was because the Company developed and opened many projects in 2007, totally of Bath 12,350 million, increased 80 percent from 2006. Inventory of land and land developing cost was major part of total amount. That is because it is important factor in land and construction project development. Land and land developing cost is about 40 – 50 percent of total product cost. At the end of 2005, 2006 and 2007, the proportion was 65.49 percent, 62.64 percent and 47.47 percent of total inventory value. That proportion decreased because the Company has policy to buy only potential land that can be developed at once. Normally, the Company will develop a project after buying that land. The Company does not have policy to maintain land bank. Therefore, the Company has more finished product and ongoing construction. In 2007, the Company opened new condominium projects. Those four projects are under construction, namely, the Complete Naratiwasrajchanakarin, the Complete Rajchaprarop, the Pulse Phaholyothin 37, and Smart Condo Rama II. As a result, the increase of ongoing construction decreases that proportion. Inventory of ongoing construction at the end of 2005, 2006 and 2007 was Baht 820.92 million, Baht 1,274.71 million, and Baht 2,237.71 million respectively. It increased 55.28 percent and 75.55 percent respectively. Reason of increase is explain in topic of inventory of land and land developing cost. The Company does not need to reserve debase of assets because the Company employs independent assessor, which is a company approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Stock Exchange of Thailand, to assess land price and building for selling of the Company and subsidiaries. The assessor suggested that assets have higher value than the previous cost. More information, please see article 5.1: Company’s Assets.

It increased at 21.67 percent, and 11.98 percent respectively. However, increase of net land and equipment was required by operation and growth of the Company. The Company grew because expansion of new projects of the Company and subsidiaries. In 2006, there were 9 new projects and 11 projects in 2007. Therefore, as of December 31, 2007, the active projects were 23. In 2006, most of increase was in office equipment. At the end of 2006, it increased from 2005 at 37.61 percent.

Analysis of Financial Position and Operation Results

Optimal capital structure As at the end of year 2005, 2006 and 2007, the Company and subsidiaries has debt to equity ratio equals to 1.21 times, 1.43 times and 1.63 times respectively. The ratio in 2006 increases from 2005 because there was borrowing loan for capital in project development of the Company and subsidiaries, especially projects of Prinventure Company Limited, the Company’s subsidiary. Most projects were under developing and did not be on selling. As a result, the total amount of loan for project development was still high. In addition the Company paid dividend to the shareholders. In 2007, the debt to equity ratio increased from 2006 because there was borrowing loan for capital in project development of the Company and subsidiaries. In addition, the Company operated many active under construction and new projects in 2007. Four condominium projects, namely, the Complete Naratiwasrajchanakarin, the Complete Rajchaprarop, the Pulse Phaholyothin 37, and Smart Condo Rama II require high investment. Revenue from these projects will not be recognized until ownership is transferred after the projects completes. Optimal average debt to equity ratio of companies in real estate industry is less than 1.00 time. Hence, the Company’s dept to equity radio slightly excess the average. However, projects of the Company and subsidiaries are under developing. When they are opening for sale and transfer ownership to customers, the Company and subsidiaries will pay back the loan. Then the ratio will decrease. Factors and Influence affecting future performance or financial position Changes in customers’ needs of housing Many events including political situation, economic recess, increase of petrol price and increase of interest rate, are major factors to customers’ housing need and buying decision. Therefore, occurrence of related factors impacting on customers may make customers their buying decision. The Company’s products may not be bought or slower sold.

However, concentrating on the excellence of products and services under slogan “Charms of the Home in Harmony with Nature”, the Company receives cognition and trust from customers for the brand “Prinsiri”. The Company decreases abovementioned impact by conducting research and studying customers’ behavior prior project development in order to assure that the Company’s products will meet customers’ needs as much as possible.
