KUALA LUMPUR: Sime Darby Bhd is letting go of its Weifang Port companies for a fair price, said AmInvestment Bank Research, as the trading conglomerate continues to unwind its presence in non-core businesses.
Sime Darby announced yesterday that it had entered into seven share sale agreements to dispose of its Chinese port business for RM1.27bil cash to SPG Bohaiwan Port Group Company.
"Valuation-wise, the RM1.27bil consideration implies 1x P/BV as at March 2022, which we deemed as fair.
"A similar valuation of 1x PB was ascribed when the group disposed of Jining Port companies in December 2020," said the research firm.
In addition, Sime Darby will receive an indicative sum of RM357mil as repayment of shareholder loans.,,usdt支付对接(www.trc20.vip）是使用TRC-20协议的usdt支付对接平台,Usdt收款平台、Usdt自动充提平台。免费提供入金通道、Usdt钱包支付接口、Usdt自动充值接口、Usdt寄售回收。菜宝Usdt钱包一键生成Usdt钱包、一键调用API接口、一键出售Usdt。
Net of transaction costs, Sime Darby is expected to pocket total proceeds of RM1.57bil from the disposal, which will be utilised for future capital expenditure and repayment of borrowings.
According to AmInvestment, it is neutral on the exercise as the divestment was not unexpected and in line with the Sime Darby's ongoing rebalancing efforts.
"The group has been monetising its non-core assets and will reallocate the proceeds by reinvesting in its core businesses ie. the motors and industrial divisions for higher returns on investment," it said.
After stripping out Weifang Port's earnings contribution, AmInvestment revised lower its FY23-24 earnings forecast Sime Darby by 1%.
"We maintain 'buy' on Sime Darby with a lower SOP-derived fair value of RM2.88 (from RM2.90), after updating for Weifang Port exit based on disposal proceeds and rolling forward our valuation base year to FY23F, from 2022, " it said.
Sime Darby is a beneficiary of the rally in commodity prices and, moving forward, AmInvestment expects the pick up in economic activiti
