ST Engineering

Acquiring cash generative tolling solutions


■ The US$2.68bn (S$3.62bn) acquisition of US TransCore (TC) could add c.S$118m to STE’s net profit (7%) in FY23F.

■ The deal is not cheap, at 16.2x FY20 EV/EBITDA (STE: 13x) and 31x FY21F P/E (STE: 20x), but is in line with STE’s plan to grow its smart city business.

■ TC is also cash generative with 25% EBITDA margin vs. STE electronics’ EBITDA margin of 10-11% in FY19-20.

■ Completion will be by 1Q22F. We expect net gearing to rise to 1.5x but for STE to keep its target dividend payout (c.90% over past 5 years of S$0.15).

A Transformative Deal


Acquisition of Woolworths’ HQ strengthens portfolio AAREIT has proposed to acquire Woolworths’ Sydney HQ for AUD463.2m (SGD454.0m). It would be its largest acquisition to date, as it boosts AUM by c.27% to SGD2.2b and increases its Australian contribution from 21.8% to 38.4%. Post-deal, Woolworths will rank as its largest tenant at 15.7% of gross rental income, while DPU visibility rises from a longer 4.92-year portfolio WALE (from 3.98 years). Beyond a 4.7% DPU boost, longer-term upside could arise from potential development opportunities. Our forecasts and DDM-based SGD1.60 TP (COE: 7.6%, LTG: 1.5%) are unchanged pending deal completion expected in four weeks. AAREIT’s liquidity has improved following its inclusion into the FTSE NAREIT Index. Valuations are undemanding at 6.9% FY22E DPU yield, and 1.0x P/B; BUY.
