I would suggest to management that next year's AGM be held at the Singapore Flyer.
Save some cost on venue (it was at Amara Hotel in the past) but more importantly turn the event into an opportunity for shareholders to experience the Singapore Flyer. Hope shareholders can get 10-15% discount on tickets and for dining at the new Sky View Restaurant owned by Straco.

Straco now inching up. At 80 cents, it is grossly undervalued, especially if it hikes ticket prices for its aquariums by 20% on average next year. The hike was supposed to have happened a year ago but was "deferred" for whatever reason.

Bloomberg has just reported on the record turnout at Shanghai Disneyland.

Disney’s Iger Says Shanghai Resort Close to Breaking Even"

Makes me think that Shanghai Ocean Aquarium could be enjoying a spillover effect. The 2Q result will certainly be scrutinised for evidence of that.

STRACO CASH GENERATING MACHINE

Straco after acquisition of Singapore Flyer in November 2014 its debt, secured and unsecured stand at $93.3 million, previously from zero debt.. See below taken from FY2014, FY2015, FY2016 and 1H2017.

FY2014 (Acquisition Singapore Flyer November 2014
Debt = $93.3m - Cash flow = $112.4m - Net cash = $19.1m

FY2015
Debt = $73.9m – Cash flow = $136.5m – Net Cash = $62.6m

FY2016
Debt = $61.9m – Cash flow = $163.2m – Net Cash = $101.3m

2H2017
Debt = $55.9 – Cash Flow = $159.5m – Cash = $103.6

After 2.5 years Straco secured and unsecured debt decreased from $93.3m to $55.9m. Total debt decreased = $37.6m.
Net cash increased from $19.1m to $$103.6m.Total increased = $84.5m.

Straco net cash had returned to healthy level and I believe the management is on the lookout for another fruitful catch.

Straco is truly cash generating machine and I will be holding onto this stock for as long as the company continue to generate rich cash.
