RESEARCH REPORTS

Venture Corporation Ltd– Near-term volatility, long-term intact

Recommendation: ACCUMULATE (Downgraded), Last Done: S$16.60

Target Price: S$17.18, Analyst: Alvin Chia

– Revenue met expectations while NPAT disappointed by 6.5%.

– VMS is gaining more customers and projects, partially due to the shift in supply chain to SEA

– Net margin declined to 9.8% from 10.5% a year ago from pricing pressure we expect it to continue in the near-term.

– Downgrade to ACCUMULATE with a lower TP of S$17.18 (prev. S$17.68). We revised our FY19e revenue upwards by 2.5% and lowered NPAT by 2.8%. We are still positive on VMS for the attractive yield and rising profit share amongst its U.S. peers.

Penguin International Ltd – Another bumper quarter with record net cash

Recommendation: BUY (Maintained), Last Done: S$0.66

Target Price: S$0.93, Analyst: Paul Chew

– Earnings and revenue was a beat. We raise our FY19e/20e earnings by ~10%.

– The YoY comparables will look exaggerated due to seasonally weak quarter last year. The rolling 4-quarter (or annual) earnings run-rate is a healthy S$21mn.

– Record net cash position of S$53.1mn and other balance sheet metrics suggest another healthy quarter ahead.

– We are raising our target price to S$0.93 (5x PE excluding net cash) as we roll over our target price to FY20e net earnings. Our BUY recommendation is maintained.
