SingTel's 3QFY22 underlying net profit rose 18.2% y-o-y

  • SingTel (SGX:Z74)’s 3QFY23 (Oct-Dec 2022) results met expectations. Operating revenue fell 5.1% y-o-y to S$3.7b in 3QFY23, due to the absence of contributions from Amobee and 8% decline in the AUD. On an underlying basis (in constant currency basis and excluding contribution from National Broadband Network (NBN) migration and Amobee), operating revenue would have grown 6.0% y-o-y, driven by higher NCS’ revenue and a rebound in roaming across Singapore and Australia.

  • Optus’ revenue and EBITDA in 3QFY23 fell 3.8% and 15.1% y-o-y. Optus returned to customer net add position in mid Dec 2022 as it regained customer trust and confidence after the cyber attack last year.
  • Separately, NCS continued to be weighed by margin pressure. Despite a 21% y-o-y increases in revenue, 3QFY23 EBIT of NCS was down 53.9% y-o-y to S$23m but improved from S$6m in 2QFY23. We note that NCS’ order books remained strong as companies accelerate their digital transformation.
  • Management expects NCS’ margin pressure (due to post-acquisition costs, investments in digital capabilities and higher labour cost) to improve as the cost of scaling the business eases in the coming quarters.
