  • Margin expansion. In line with higher revenue, BRC Asia's FY22 gross profit also grew 87% y-o-y while gross margins expanded 2.0ppt y-o-y. This is largely due to lower steel prices in 2HFY22 which led to a net reversal of provisions for onerous contracts at S$12.8m compared to a provision of S$45.3m in FY21.
  • Moving forward, management noted that the group expects further reversal of provisions for onerous contracts as steel prices continue to fall, boosting margins.
  • Resolute orderbook. BRC Asia’s orderbook remains robust, standing at S$1.4b, higher than the S$1.14b at end-3QFY22. We expect BRC Asia to deliver half of its current orderbook in the next 3-4 quarters as local construction activity ramps up.

Challenging operating environment ahead.
