Econ Healthcare - Share Investment Turns Sour
- Econ Healthcare (SGX:EHG) recently invested ~S$4.0m of its idle working capital into 11,800,000 units of shares of Crosstec Group Holdings Inc (3893 HK), an interior design solutions company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. On 11 Jan, Crosstec saw an 84% decline in its share price to HKD 0.38, which implies a potential investment loss of over S$3.2m for the company, equal to ~118% of FY22F net earnings.
- While the losses could be recouped, we believe Econ Healthcare’s investment mandate and strategy should be tightened significantly.
- We downgrade Econ Healthcare to a HOLD, with a target price of S$0.28 as we raise our WACC to 11.8% to reflect the uncertainty caused by this development.
