Disappointing 1H23, strong uptick expected in 2H23

 1H23 net profit was below our expectations, at 31% of our FY23e forecasts. Net profit fell 34.1% YoY, due to 1) 15% decline in ASP; and 2) slow construction progress with safety measures implemented at worksites, which caused deliveries to be deferred. Lower order delivery was mitigated by trading volume, which reduced gross margin by 1.3% pt to 7.4%.

Higher OPEX hurt earnings


 3QFY23 earnings of RM34.2mn were below our estimates. 9MFY23 earnings were at 64% of our FY23e. The 15% YoY dip in earnings came from higher-than-expected OPEX due to the current inflationary environment and a need to increase staff costs.

Inflationary pressures gradually abating


 1Q23 revenue was within expectations but PATMI disappointed. 1Q23 revenue/PATMI was 22% and 18% of our FY23e forecast.

Singapore Airlines (SIA SP)

FY23: Results In Line; Strong Final Dividend A Key Surprise


SIA’s FY23 core net profit was in line with our expectations at 99% of our forecast. The final dividend of 28 S cents was a positive surprise, leading to a 6.3% full-year yield for FY23. SIA’s core profitability has peaked and is likely to moderate in FY24-25, driven by normalising pax and cargo yields, but SIA may still sustain a decent yield of 5.8% in FY24 (before moderating to 3.7% in FY25) if it lifts the payout ratio to 70%, backed by its strong balance sheet. Upgrade SIA to HOLD with a higher target price of S$5.75.
