Riverstone Holdings -- Generates a surplus in USD - every 10% depreciation of the MYR vs USD could boost earnings (in MYR terms) by c.15%.

Bulk of revenues are denominated in USD but raw material costs only represent 30% of revenues, on average.

However, we believe that the actual impact might be smaller and closer to 6% as the current competitive landscape among glove manufacturers might entail Riverstone to share more of its forex gains with customers through lower ASPs (in USD terms) in the event of a strong USD rally.

Yangzijiang is a beneficiary of stronger USD as bulk of receipts are in USD while reporting currency is in Rmb.

Bulk of the net exposure, c.40% of revenue, was unhedged as of end-2017.

Yangzijiang has prudently made a provision of Rmb1.2bn for its outstanding contracts, assuming rate at Rmb6.15/USD and higher steel cost.

Hence, strengthening USD by Rmb0.10 would result in writeback of approximately Rmb300m. We have already assumed higher USD of Rmb6.60 in our earnings forecasts.
