  • PropNex (SGX:OYY)’s 1H23 result was soft, although not totally unexpected as buyer sentiment was affected by two recent property cooling measures. 1H net profit of S$22m (-18.4% y-o-y) achieved only 39%/35% of MIBG/street’s full-year forecasts.

  • PropNex declared an interim dividend of 2.5 cents, thus raising its dividend payout ratio (DPR) to 84%, to our surprise. We believe PropNex is increasingly seen as a sustainable yield play given its strong balance sheet. Maintain BUY.
