  • AEM (SGX:AWX) reported a weak 3Q23, mainly due to the US$20m settlement provision, but in line with our estimate. Profit before tax for 9M23 would be S$42.6m, excluding exceptional items.
  • However, management has guided that it now sees a protracted recovery of tester utilization rates pushing main capex spend into late 2024. As a result, we reduce our FY24/25 PATMI forecasts for AEM by 24% and 10.6%, respectively.
