UMS - DBS Research 2023-03-01: Customer Diversification Is A Buffer Against Current Headwinds

UMS - Customer Diversification Is A Buffer Against Current Headwinds

  • UMS (SGX:558)'s FY22 revenue in line but net profit below on weaker margins. Net profit for FY22 reached a new high of $98.2m (+85% y-o-y) on record revenue of S$372.4m (+37% y-o-y). The robust performance was mainly driven by strong sales, as well as a reversal of the tax provision made by its Malaysian subsidiary after the resolution of its pioneer tax incentives with the Malaysian government. Excluding the reversal of the tax provision, UMS's net profit was up ~57% y-o-y. Overall, UMS's FY22 net profit was below our expectations by 8% but revenue was in line.
