Tapering transformation costs in FY24F

  • - Read this at -
  • We expect FY24F to be an important year of integration for StarHub, as the group focuses on:
    1. streamlining of IT and network functions, and
    2. transitioning away from legacy systems.
  • We think margin expansion would be more apparent in FY25-26F as capex/opex levels normalise following DARE+ completion and cost savings kick in.
  • We forecast FY24F service EBITDA margin of 21.9% (+0.2% pt y-o-y), before rising to 22.7%/23.0% in FY25F/26F.

More growth for Ensign ahead, while mobile remains competitive
