FY17F to be weak, orders in focus


■ 3Q17 net profit of S$2.7m missed our forecast due to S$12.7m loss from Borr’s rig sale and weak EBIT margin ex forex gain of 1.1%. 9M EPS at 38% of previous FY17F.

■ Rig building revenue will swing in the next five quarters with the delivery of nine Borr Drilling rigs. Profit impact will be neutral as losses have been recognised in 3Q17.

■ Net gearing unchanged qoq at 1.3x due to working capital from current projects. Management expects net gearing of 1.03x post US$500m receipt from Borr.

■ FY17F has been a bad year; all eyes now on the potential orders in the pipeline.

■ We cut our FY17-19F EPS on lower EBIT margin; TP dips to S$2.49, still 2x FY18F P/BV. Maintain Add on the back of order hope in FY18F. Oil price crash a key risk.
