Digi Join The Iphone Battle

Digi.Com Bhd., the Malaysian mobile- phone company controlled by Norway’s Telenor ASA, signed an agreement to sell Apple Inc.’s iPhone in Malaysia to tap growth in a market that it forecasts will surge 10-fold in five years.

“Growth is coming back this year,” Digi’s Chief Executive Officer Johan Dennelind said in an interview with Bloomberg television in Kuala Lumpur today. Digi will start selling iPhone 3G and 3GS in “coming months,” he said.

The three-year agreement will help Digi increase sales more than 5 percent cent this year, higher than the industry average, Dennelind said. Digi’s sales rose 2 percent last year, slowing from 10 percent in 2008 as Malaysia’s economy shrank 1.7 percent. The government forecasts economic growth of more than 4 percent this year.

This indeed a very good news for consumer and maxis monopoly Iphone ended.

BHP jacks up coking coal prices 55%

Mumbai: BHP Billiton, the world’s top coking coal producer, has signed a coking coal deal with Indian steelmakers at $200 per tonne, up 55% from last year’s prices.

Pawan Burde, vice president (research), PINC Research said the industry was expecting a price rise of around $180 per tonne. “Steelmakers will have to increases prices by $60-70 per tonne.” Burde believes due to the strong steel demand in the country and robust auto and infrastructure spending, passing on this cost to the consumers won’t be a problem.

Steel Sector Comparison

The steel industry in Malaysia can be categorically subdivided into two main segments, namely the long products and the flat products --
Steel consumption is projected to grow at an annual rate of 5%, with the ratio of longs to flats falling to about 40:60 by 2007. As Malaysia continues to industrialise, the consumption pattern will progressively favour flats as is
evidently seen in other newly industrialised countries. The anticipated increase in flats consumption is also due to the expanding manufacturing sector, being the main driver of industrial development in the coming years.
On the other hand, the longs segment will continue to depend on the construction sector, primarily the residential sub-sector as large infrastructure projects will be progressively scaled down under the new administration.
