XMH secured new contracts worth SGD23.1m, which were awarded to
subsidiaries MPG (SGD15.5m) and Z-Power (SGD7.6m)
. Maintain BUY,
with a SGD0.30 TP (54% upside)
. These contracts have deliveries
stretching into 2017. Z-Power was also awarded the prestigious ABB
Value Provider Certification. We believe that strong operations at these
subsidiaries could contribute to XMH’s 75% FY16F earnings growth.
■ New contracts worth SGD23.1m
XMH has secured new contracts
worth SGD23.1m, of which SGD15.5m were awarded to Mech-Power
Generator (MPG) and the remaining SGD7.6m to Z-Power. MPG’s
contracts are for backup generators for a data centre worth SGD7.8m,
which it expects to fulfill in Sep 2015, and for a healthcare centre worth
SGD7.7m for deliveries between Sep 2015 and Mar 2017. Z-Power’s
contracts involve the supply of electrical packages to a variety of
vessels, with deliveries between 2015 and 2016.
■ Receives prestigious certification
Z-Power was awarded the
prestigious ABB Value Provider certification, which allows the company
to market as well as build and assemble ABB liquid and air-cooled
variable frequency drivers outside of Finland. From this, we estimate
approximately SGD20m of recurring revenue for Z-Power going forward.
We believe that contributions from MPG and Z-Power, coupled with a
gradual recovery in the Indonesian market for XMH’s core engine
business, would enable earnings to grow 75% in FY16F.
■ Focus on the cash
XMH’s gross profit margin was strong, at 31.7%, in
3QFY15 (Apr) and we expect its profitability to be maintained going
forward as these new contracts may likely result in similar margins. It
should also generate healthy SGD28m/20m in operating cash flow in
FY15F/FY16F, on the back of its healthy orderbook.
■ Key risks include a delayed recovery of engine orders in Indonesia.
■ Valuations are undemanding
Valuations are undemanding, at 6.2/3.8x
FY15F/FY16F EV/EBITDAs and a 5.1% yield
. We maintain BUY, with a
SGD0.30 TP based on 10x FY16F P/E
– which is at a slight premium to
its peers’ 8-9x – as XMH offers significantly higher ROICs of 17-20%,
has strong cash generation and is in a net cash position. (Read Report)
