■ Last week, ISDN announced that 2 of its mini-hydropower plants have been commissioned. The next step is to obtain permits for commercial operations.

■ If successful, the mini-hydropower business could be EPS accretive for FY22F-23F. Spinning off this business is also a possibility.

2 mini-hydropower plants commissioned
● ISDN’s hydropower plants in Anggoci (10MW capacity) and Sisira (4.6MW capacity) successfully passed commissioning last week and have been hooked to the municipal grid. These plants are in North Sumatra, Indonesia.

● The next step is for ISDN to obtain permits for full commercial operations, which it targets to achieve by end-2021.

● ISDN also said that the third mini-hydropower plant of 10MW capacity at Lau Biang continues to make good progress towards commissioning by the first half of 2022.

Additional earnings stream for FY22F-23F
● We have not factored in earnings contribution from the mini-hydropower plants for now.

● If the Anggoci and Sisira plants can be commercially operational by end-2021, these could contribute to our FY22F earnings forecast. Similarly if Lau Biang can achieve commercialisation by 1HFY22F, there could be 6 months of earnings contribution from this plant in our FY22F forecast.

● ISDN’s mini-hydropower business is held via its 67.1% owned subsidiary, AEnergy Holdings Company Limited (Not Listed).

Reiterate Add
williamtng4.14William Tng, CFA.● At 12.6x Singapore tech sector CY22 average P/E (unchanged), our TP remains at S$0.85.

● A potential re-rating catalyst is earlier profit contribution from its hydropower segment.

● A downside risk is a prolonged Covid-19 outbreak.
