Venture Corporation - Worst Should Be Over; Upgrade To BUY With Lower Target Price 

Venture Corp (SGX:V03) | SGinvestors.ioVenture Corp (SGX:V03)
  • Venture Corp (SGX:V03)'s 3Q23 was weaker than expected with NPAT at S$66.4m compared to our S$70.2m due to lower revenue and higher operating costs.
  • However, the outlook has improved and 3Q23 should likely be the bottom as management revealed that certain New Product Introductions (NPIs) will have started in 4Q23E and more are slated for FY24. Customer inventory levels are also down sharply and we should see more orders placed in 4Q23.
