AEM - Dark Clouds Still Present; Maintain SELL

  • AEM (SGX:AWX)'s 1Q23 revenue and NPAT sank 42% and 62% y-o-y to S$152.7m and S$15.6m, respectively, 16% below our estimates.
  • Management retained its S$500m FY23 revenue guidance and will only have more clarity after July or August 2023. As a result, we cut our respective FY23 and FY24 PATMI forecasts by 8.2% and 8.3% as AEM’s margins will likely face pressure from lower operating leverage and potential margin squeeze by its main customer.
