The Business 

Proxy to Myanmar plays with five key business segments 

  • Singapore Myanmar Investco (SMI) is a proxy to Myanmar plays, with five key business segments: 
    1. Travel & Fashion, 
    2. Food & Beverage, 
    3. Auto services, 
    4. Construction, and 
    5. Logistics & Warehousing. 
  • SMI aims to have all businesses satisfy at least one of the three criteria – leadership position, early-mover advantage, and monopoly position.

10-year merchandise supply agreement to duty free shops; franchise rights for retail outlets. 

  • SMI’s 10-year agreement for the supply of duty-free goods at the new terminal of Yangon International Airport and its franchise agreements with three retail outlets to date – Crystal Jade, IPPUDO and The Coffee Bean, is set to benefit from the growing tourism in Myanmar.

Strong demand for car rentals. 

  • The liberalisation of Myanmar’s economy has lead to a significant rise in tourism and FDI, resulting in strong demand for car rental services.

Leveraging on the rapidly expanding construction sector and the shortage of cold warehouse in Myanmar. 

  • SMI’s partnership with SANY, one of China’s leading heavy equipment manufacturers, is set to capture a significant pie of the growing construction sector. SMI aims to be a national logistics/supply chain player, especially cold warehouse, in Myanmar.

The Stock 

Fair value of S$0.76. 

  • We arrive at a fair value of S$0.76, based on 18x FY19F PE, and 0.3x PEG (peers 0.4x). 
  • The 18x valuation parameter is at a discount to our 20x valuation target for SGXlisted peer, Duty Free Int’l, given SMI’s limited track record.

Key Risks: 

  • Loss of duty free supply rights and franchise agreements for retail outlets; political instability.

Return *: 1 
Risk: Moderate 
Potential Target 12-mth* : 12-Month S$ 0.76 (31% upside)
