The Business.

Specialist in building maintenance and estate upgrading industry. 

  • ISOTeam was founded in 1998 and has more than 15 years of Repairs & Redecoration (R&R) and Addition & Alteration (A&A) track record in upgrading, retrofitting and maintenance of estates in Singapore. It has undertaken more than 300 public and private sector R&R and A&A projects involving close to 3,000 buildings. 
  • ISOTeam is also the exclusive applicator of paint works for both SKK and Nippon Paint in the public housing sector in Singapore.

Government estate upgrading and Myanmar to drive growth. 

  • Growth is dependent on the government’s initiatives to reshape the landscape of public housing, amenities and towns in Singapore including Neighbourhood Renewal Programme (NRP). 
  • As one of the largest integrated specialist A&A and R&R service providers, we believe ISOTeam enjoys economies of scale in its resources and is able to bid for projects more competitively than its smaller rivals. 
  • Newly incorporated JV with Nippon Paint in Myanmar will be able to tap growth potential in infrastructure development and construction activities there.

The Stock

Stock's fair value at S$0.35 based on PE. 

  • Our TP of S$0.35 is based on 10x FY17F earnings. 
  • We note that ISOTeam is a growth company that has the potential to expand quickly especially with its new JV business with Nippon Paint in Myanmar. 
  • We believe our 10x valuation peg is modest as PEG is inexcessive at 0.8x.
