AEM - Still On Track For Multi-Year Product Ramp-Up
- AEM (SGX:AWX) released its 1Q22 business update on 5 May 2022. 1Q22 revenue grew 226.4% y-o-y to S$261.9m (1Q21:S$80.2m) while net profit grew 205.6% y-o-y to S$40.8m (1Q21:S$13.3m), above our and Bloomberg consensus full-year expectations.
- We reflect AEM’s new FY22F revenue guidance of S$700m-750m (previously S$670m- 720m). However, reflecting investors’ concerns over inflationary cost pressures, we assume a more prudent net profit margin of 15.8% for FY22F (previously 17.2%), guided by AEM’s 1Q22 net profit margin of 15.6% (4Q21: 17.2%, FY21: 16.3%). Hence, we lower our FY22F EPS by 4.3% and FY24F EPS by 0.1%.
- We reiterate our ADD call and target price of S$6.85 for AEM based on an unchanged 15.62x (10% premium to AEM’s 2 standard deviation above its FY17-21 historical average forward P/E multiple of 14.2x) at an FY23F EPS of S$0.4384.
