Total vehicle sales in October 2009 rose by 22.87% to 46,092 units as compared with the same month last year but the year-to-date market registered a 5.07% contraction. Of the total October sales, 41,520 units were passenger vehicles and the remaining 4,572 commercial vehicles, the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) highlighted. The MAA said sales volume for this month is expected to recover further amid a continuous favourable market and consumer sentiment, as well as year-end sales campaigns. (Bernama)
The huge 22.9% yoy increase in total vehicle sales in October was due to the festive season timing mismatch, i.e. Hari Raya and Deepavali fell on October last year resulting in a shorter working month. Annualised YTD volume now stands at 532,453 units, c.3% ahead of our projection of 515,250 units.

Moody's affirmed Telekom Malaysia's A3 local currency issuer rating and A3 senior unsecured foreign currency rating, both with a stable outlook. It said the affirmation followed TM's announcement that it plans to launch a tender offer of up to US$150m to buy back some of its outstanding 2010 and 2014 US dollar bonds. Moody's said the size of the tender offer is small in the context of Telekom Malaysia's outstanding debt, therefore the improvement on leverage metrics is immaterial in the context of the rating.

New airlines flying into three main airports in Malaysia from Jan-10 will receive an incentive payment of RM10 for each inbound international passenger in their first year of operations, Malaysia Airports said. The airports are Kuala Lumpur International Airport, LCCT and Subang Airport.
  • “A higher incentive payment of RM25 per inbound passenger will be given to all new airlines flying international services to all the other airports in Malaysia,” MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said. New airlines flying into Malaysia will also enjoy a waiver in landing fees for three years for each new service operated. New airlines also get to enjoy free office rental for six months.
  • Existing airlines will also be entitled to incentive payment under the new programme. “Using 2008 as a base, MAHB’s tier-based incentive will award RM10 per pax for the first 10% growth, RM12.50 per pax for the next 8% and RM15 for all additional pax above 18%,” Bashir said. However, airlines can also opt to use 2009 as base year and benefit for only two years. Existing airlines will continue to enjoy 50% discount on all landings at all airports in the country from April 2009 to March 2011, as  announced under the government's economic stimulus plan.

Capesize vessels have been fixed to ship iron ore from Australia to China at rates not seen since the Lehman Brothers financial collapse. 
  • Australian miners, including BHP Billiton and Fortescue Metals Group, paid daily rates as high as $106,000 to secure scarce capesize tonnage yesterday. Capesize rates from Brazil to China also rose, hitting $109,000. Panamax rates have also surged, with average time charter rates at $34,890 per day and the Baltic Dry Index closing at 4,339 points, up 157.
  • This is the first time the rate on the Australia to China route has returned to pre-crash levels, as steady Chinese demand for iron ore is bolstered by European coal cargoes and a shortage of immediately available ships in the Pacific trading region.
  • “The strength and rapidity of the freight market’s rise has taken shipowners and charterers by surprise,” said Andrew Dawson, a broker with Freight Investor Services.Many were expecting a strong fourth quarter but not a doubling of rate levels in a matter of weeks. “In some ways the cargo story is no different to last week, China is driving the demand and we are seeing more coal and ore cargoes as well as grain in the northern Pacific, but what is happening is similar to a year ago. Day rates, which had been going up by hundreds of dollars a day, are now going up by thousands.” (Lloyd's List)
