Sembcorp Marine - Weak 1Q20 Business Volume, But Priced In




Industry-wide capex cuts

  • Industry-wide capex cuts have affected Sembcorp Marine (SGX:S51)’s ongoing negotiations and finalisation of new orders, including the Siccar Point Cambo Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) project. The project’s final investment decision (FID) is now postponed to 2021. The effects of COVID- 19 as well as the low oil prices on projects’ FIDs will continue to adversely affect new orders in the foreseeable quarters.


Low overall 1Q20 business volume.

  • Delays in executing existing orders and lack of new orders have resulted in lower Sembcorp Marine's 1Q20 revenue recognition. COVID-19 has also affected global shipping operations and adversely affected the repairs & upgrades business. Management expects business volumes for all segments to further weaken for the rest of the year.


SMM will defer all non-essential capex

  • Sembcorp Marine will defer all non-essential capex to preserve cash flow and manage overall liquidity with prudence and discipline. The company’s current priority is to ensure adequate liquidity to sustain operations and ride through this severe downturn.


Management expects the trend of losses to continue

  • Management expects the trend of losses to continue in the foreseeable quarters. We lowered our revenue expectations. We raised our FY20F net losses by 13% to SGD54m. Our FY21F net profit is cut by 13% to SGD41m.


We lower the Target Price to SGD1.28
