SIIC will continue to journey up the ladder to be an industry leader with its recent acquisitions of Longjiang Group and Ranhill Water as instruments enabling it to gain a stronger foothold in north-eastern China and break into the industrial wastewater market, said RHB.

SIIC Environmental's (SIIC) total design capacity has grown to over 10m tonnes/day from 7m tonnes/day, after it acquired Longjiang Environmental Protection Group (Longjiang Group) last month.

With that, RHB expects Longjiang Group to lift SIIC's full-year earnings, in 4Q16.

It also notes that Management's guidance was also assuring. Its CFO, Mr Xu Zhan, thinks Longjiang Group's net profit could grow at least 20% pa over FY17-18.

SIIC also acquired a 60% stake in Ranhill Water back in September. RHB thinks this acquisition puts it in good stead to enter the industrial wastewater treatment sector. In addition, management has set a timeline to complete its Hong Kong dual listing by end-2Q17.

After that, RHB believes that SIIC's parent company, Shanghai Industrial, could inject its other water asset – a 45% stake in General Water of China – into SIIC
