  • M&A likely in the near to medium term. Sembcorp highlighted that with 9.8GW of renewables (both operational and projects under development), it is close to its stated target of 10GW.
  • In our view, Sembcorp is likely to present a higher renewables target to the market in the next few months, with M&A the likely mode of expansion. Sembcorp stated that it prefers targets that are near to or have just started operations, or brownfield projects where it deploys its own operations and maintenance (O&M) in-house instead of outsourcing; as a result it can save around 30% in costs.
  • Investors were also keen to hear that the hurdle rate (on a local currency basis) for Sembcorp’s India projects is in the mid-teens while China’s is slightly above 10% IRR.

Hydrogen – a key point of investor interest.
