Excerpts from SooChow CSSD Capital Markets' 25-page report titled "Emerging Giant with Impeccable Track Record"
|Oxley Holdings (“Oxley") is a globally diversified property developer listed in SGX since 2010.
From making its name in niche shoebox condo, Oxley has ventured into overseas developments from 2013 to become a global developer with impeccable track-record.
Oxley has recently returned to SG market, actively acquiring en-bloc sites and an office building, just in time for market recovery.
We initiate coverage with BUY and TP of $0.63/share.
Globally diversified developer: Oxley made a mark in Singapore property map with its popular “Shoe-box” condo projects back in 2010-2013, earning them the “Shoe-box” king title.
Since listing in 2010 with a market cap of S$565m, the company has grown from 8 projects in Singapore to a globally diversified developer with 28 development projects in 12 different countries currently, potentially worth over S$19bn in GDV.
Timely return to “home” turf: Over the past year, Oxley has swiftly spent close to S$1.3bn in land banking, and has emerged as one of the largest residential pipeline holders in Singapore with ~3,800 units translating to GDV of ~S$5bn (attributable c.S$3.25bn); launching over the next 4-6mo.
In addition, Oxley invested S$0.66bn in Chevron House, with potential upside post AEI and office rent recovery.
|♦ Initiating coverage with BUY|
|We initiate coverage with a TP of $0.63/share, pegged at 20% discount to our end-2018 RNAV. We project 11.4% EPS CAGR from FY18-20E as development projects are handed over. With Oxley’s active stance in the Singapore residential market, the key risks lie in government policy and executions.

Healthy B/S; potential REIT: With ~S$1.78bn of unbilled contracts vs debt of S$1.6bn over next 2-3 years, we think Oxley’s cash flow is secured and leverage will remain below 2x.
In addition, we estimate Investment prop to gradually rise, making up ~10% of FY20E revenue, lending stability to earnings.
Oxley’s hospitality assets value could reach S$1.4bn when completed – potential for a hospitality REIT listing in 2020.
