RESEARCH REPORT

Thai Beverage – Accretive acquisitions but domestic beer demand drags
Recommendation: Buy (Maintain), Last Close Price: S$0.61
Target Price: S$1.05, Analyst: Soh Lin Sin
– 1H18 Revenue/Core EBITDA met 55%/50% of our full year expectations; Earnings
missed on higher than expected finance costs and effective tax rate
– Strong results from recent acquisitions unable to offset the persistent weakness in
Thai Beer market

CNMC Goldmine Holdings Limited – Satisfactory CIL results
Recommendation: BUY, Last Done Price: S$0.275
Target Price: S$0.42, Analyst: Chen Guangzhi
– The first gold pour from CIL plant delivered a substantial improvement in
production.
– Business remains intact under the new federal administration.
– Both operating and non-operating costs will surge.
– Upgrade to BUY with a higher TP as we expect production and earnings will
rebound strongly this year

Banyan Tree Holdings Limited – Improved profitability across major business segments
Recommendation: Accumulate (Maintained), Last Close Price: S$0.59
Target Price: S$0.73, Analyst: Tan Dehong
– Revenue and earnings outperformed our forecasts due to stronger performance
from Group-owned hotels.
– Better operating performance from Group owned hotels in biggest market
Thailand offset weakness in Maldives.
– Improved profitability in Fee-based segment.
– Property sales segment turned in losses even with 155% YoY increase in revenue.
– Maintain ACCUMULATE with higher target price of S$0.73 (from $0.71) after
factoring in divestment gains.

SIA Engineering Company Ltd – On a path to recovery
Recommendation: Accumulate (Maintain), Last Close Price: $3.31
Target Price: $3.57, Analyst: Richard Leow
– Revenue was within our and consensus expectation
– Adjusted PATMI was 4% lower our expectation; and in line with consensus
– Final dividend of 9 cents with no special dividend (FY17: 9 cents final, 5 cents
special)
– Maintain Accumulate, higher target price of $3.57 (previously $3.51)

Asian Pay Television Trust – Non-subscription revenue caused the damage
Recommendation: Buy (Upgrade), Last Close Price: S$0.47
Target Price: S$0.52, Analyst: Paul Chew
– 1Q18 revenue and EBITDA disappointed, after declining by 7% YoY. Our
expectations were flat revenue and EBITDA.
– Revenue was negatively affected by weaker selling prices from TV prepaid
packages and a significant drop in non-subscription revenue sourced from TV
channel leasing.
– We have cut our target price to S$0.52 (previously S$0.62). This is after lowering
our earnings forecast and terminal growth rate assumptions. The yield is
attractive, but capital appreciation will be challenged until there are more stability
in revenues. The share price decline has triggered an upgrade to BUY.


TECHNICAL PULSE

Geo Energy Res Ltd – Daily timeframe – Bullish
– Since the bullish rejection off the 0.215 range low on 14/05/18, the bullish follow-through managed to break price above the 0.230 range high on 16/05/18 signals a reversal higher next.
– Expect price to rebound higher next once the bullish follow-through occurs for price to test the 0.265 resistance area followed by 0.300.
