  • Keppel (SGX:BN4)’s recurring income grew 54% y-o-y to S$773m in FY23. Infrastructure was the largest recurring earnings driver (+90% y-o-y). We attribute the infra strength to its agile contracting strategy at higher spread, optimisation of fuel source and plant efficiency, and retail gas sale.

Integrated power business drove infrastructure profits

  • Infrastructure profits grew 40% h-o-h to S$408m in 2H23, driven by the S$352m (+16% h-o-h) operating income from its integrated power business, on the back of higher spreads contracted with customers, optimisation of LNG/PNG fuel source and plant efficiency, as well as some retail gas sale, in our view.
  • As at end-2023, 19% of infra’s generating power capacity comprised contracts of more than 10 years (vs. 1% as at Jun 23), contributed mainly by the contract to provide 150-180MW of power p.a. to GlobalFoundaries, starting May 24. Its 3-10-year contracts also grew h-o-h to 40% of generating capacity (from 35%).

Infrastructure profits likely to sustain in FY24-25F
