  • We expect SATS’ earnings recovery to gain traction in 2024, driven by the continued air traffic recovery and growth in global air cargo demand.

  • We forecast SATS’ FY25 (Apr 24 – Mar 25) net profit at S$158m, a 283% y-o-y growth from FY24’s low base of S$41m, and project SATS’ earnings to rise further to S$285m (more normalised state of earnings) in FY26.

The Red Sea crisis may provide tailwinds to air cargo demand, benefitting SATS.
