China Sunsine Chemical Holdings - Valuation Play

  • We determine S$0.265 as a trough price for China Sunsine (SGX:QES). Upgrade to ADD from Hold on a valuation basis; accumulate for long-term.
  • China Sunsine is a global leader in the supply of rubber accelerators, and has been consistently profitable, with positive operating cash flow since IPO in 2007.
  • Near-term outlook remains challenging, but we believe China Sunsine could emerge stronger from this crisis given its more robust balance sheet vs. peers.



What are you buying into?

  • China Sunsine is the largest producer of rubber accelerators in the world and the largest producer of insoluble sulphur in the PRC, according to the company’s 2018 annual report. China Sunsine supplies two-thirds of the global top 75 global tyre makers including Bridgestone, Michelin, Goodyear and Pirelli.
  • Since its IPO in 2007, China Sunsine has consistently been profitable, with a positive operating cash flow.


Upgrade to ADD on valuation basis

  • We determine S$0.265 as a trough point for China Sunsine, based on our bear-case FY20F BVPS forecast of Rmb2.67/share; pegged to China Sunsine’s historical trough P/BV of 0.52x.
  • Downside risk is cushioned by its FY20F net cash of S$0.21/share.
  • We believe that China Sunsine’s near-term challenging outlook has been more than priced in by the market, and recommend long-term investors accumulate at this level. We upgrade China Sunsine from Hold to ADD on a valuation basis.
  • We cut FY20-22F EPS forecasts (base case) by 21.8-36.5% to factor in lower ASP and margin assumptions; our lower Target Price of S$0.38 is based on 0.72x FY20F P/BV (-0.75 s.d. of historical mean).


Why was it previously a HOLD?



Re-rating catalysts/Key risks
