Thai Beverage: Good things take time


Thai Beverage PLC’s (ThaiBev) FY18 results were below expectations – core PATMI was down 19% YoY to THB 21.0b and came up to 87% of our full-year forecast. Management attributed the soft results to lackluster demand locally on the back of 1) the slow economy, 2) an increase in product prices after the implementation of higher excise tax rates at the end of 2017, and 3) an elderly fund tax at the beginning of 2018. Domestic spirits and beer volumes were down 12% and 11% YoY respectively. We continue to be wary on domestic economic weakness and the dampening effect of the increase in excise tax, which we had previously under-estimated. Nonetheless, valuations continue to be attractive with ThaiBev trading at a FY19F P/E of 15.7x (Bloomberg consensus) as at 26 Nov’s close, more than 1 standard deviation below its 5-year mean and close to its 5y trough of 14.7x. After adjustments, our fair value decreases from S$0.89 to S$0.85. Maintain BUY.
