Frencken (SGX:E28) | SGinvestors.ioFrencken (SGX:E28)
  • Frencken (SGX:E28) reported a much weaker 1Q23 than expected, with revenue declining 13% y-o-y to S$172.5m while PATMI fell 59.5% y-o-y to S$5.2 m, mainly due to weakness in the semi-con and industrial automation segments as well as a lower utilisation rate.

  • - Read this at -
  • Frencken's key customer in Singapore has high inventory levels hence new orders are likely to be delayed towards 2024. Hence, we believe a continued slowdown is inevitable and we don’t expect semi-con revenue to pick up again until FY24E.

Analytical revenues to continue to grow
