NeraTel - Take Profit On Special Dividend

  • As expected, Neratel announced a special dividend of SGD0.15, representing a 20% yield due to the sale of its POS business. However, its network infrastructure business suffered a shock loss mainly due to higher equipment sales mix with lower margins, as well as loss from the Nigeria project due to the devaluation of the Nigerian currency. 
  • We think that current price levels are optimal for profit taking due to the challenging environment its remaining business will face. 
  • We change our call to Take Profit from Trading BUY with a slightly lower TP of SGD0.77.



SGD0.15/share interim dividend declared. 

  • The company has announced an interim dividend of SGD0.15/share sale agreement of POS, representing a yield of 20% for FY16F. 
  • We do expect an additional dividend of SGD0.01 to be paid out at the end of FY16F if its 4Q16 is profitable.


Hit by Nigerian business and higher equipment sales mix. 

  • Its network infrastructure business suffered a shock loss mainly due to higher equipment sales mix with lower margins, as well as loss from the Nigeria project due to the devaluation of the Nigerian currency which caused a SGD1.2m FX loss.


A challenging outlook ahead. 

  • Declining margins from equipment sales as well as tight competition will pose a great challenge to Neratel going forward. On the bright side, order intake for the Infocomm segment increased YoY by 38.2% to SGD84.6m 3Q16. The group is likely still going to expand in Indonesia as it sees them as a key market for Neratel going forward.
  • Key Risks : Stiff competition leads to declining margins.


Downgrade to “Take Profit”. 

  • We think that current price levels are optimal for profit taking due to the challenging environment its remaining business will face. 
  • We change our call to Take Profit from Trading BUY with a slightly lower TP of SGD0.77.
