Japfa - CGS-CIMB Research 2022-03-03: Bracing For The Downcycle

Japfa - Bracing For The Downcycle

JAPFA LTD. (SGX:UD2) | SGinvestors.ioJAPFA LTD. (SGX:UD2)
  • Japfa (SGX:UD2)'s FY21 core net profit of US$132.7m missed our estimate by 14% due to higher cost pressures across business segments and extended APO losses.
  • In 4Q21, the resurgence of African Swine Fever (ASF) led to pre-emptive sales of swine in Vietnam, keeping swine prices weak. Operationally, Japfa continued to deliver healthy growth in sales volumes of 8.9-42.3% y-o-y across various animal feed and proteins in 4Q21
  • We reiterate HOLD call on Japfa with a lower target price of S$0.65 as we roll forward our valuation, now based on CY23F P/E of 7x (vs. 9x previously), slightly below its five-year historical average to account for the expected share price weakness in the near term due to lack of profit growth visibility.
