Sembcorp Industries - UOB Kay Hian 2023-02-22: Strong 2022 Results With Both Energy Segments Continuing To Outperform

Sembcorp Industries - Strong 2022 Results With Both Energy Segments Continuing To Outperform

  • Sembcorp reported stronger-than-expected net profit for 2022 with the highlights being its conventional energy segment as well as contribution from its new renewable assets in China.
  • In our view, Sembcorp is likely to undertake more M&As in the renewables space in 2023 as it has S$3.7b to capitalise on such opportunities – this could drive share price performance.

  • Renewables segment the key highlight. Net profit before exceptional items for the Renewables segment jumped 150% to S$140m on the back of Sembcorp’s new acquisitions, namely:
    1. Shenzhen Huiyang New Energy (HYNE), and
    2. 35%-owned SDIC New Energy.
  • In addition, higher power prices for the company’s solar assets boosted its renewables’ bottom line.
  • To recap, Sembcorp acquired 3.6GW of renewables capacity through acquisitions and organic growth across key markets, resulting in 9.8GW of renewables capacity as at end-22.
