Article in The Star "Blip for Sapura Energy", one snippet:
"The stock ..... has been eking out profits in the majority of quarters since the collapse of crude oil prices in late 2014 ......"
Strictly speaking, this is correct, the majority of the quarters were indeed positive.
But ..... overall the company has bled a lot of money over those same quarteres since the losses were much larger than the profits.
The exact amount of the losses over the last 11 quarters is RM 800,000,000.00.
That is a lot of money and that would describe the current situation of Sapura Energy much better than "eking out profits in the majority of quarters". Good journalists should perform this kind of checks to give a more balanced picture.
Other interesting facts that are not revealed in the article are the total amount of liabilities of Sapura Energy (RM 22 Billion) versus only RM 1.9 Billion cash, and the rather high rewards for the controlling shareholder while the company is bleeding money.
