AEM - Game On ~ Intel News Highly Favourable For AEM

  • We expect Intel to remain a sizeable customer of AEM (SGX:AWX) and developments at Intel should be positive for AEM from:
    1. Intel’s back-end capacity additions, which should underpin earnings in the coming years; and
    2. 18A node being ahead of schedule, which should have positive implications for Intel’s dominance.
  • AEM has an extremely positive outlook for this and it’s our top SG tech pick.



Intel says 18A process node ahead of schedule

  • Intel recently announced its 18A process, 6 months ahead of schedule. It expects to be manufacturing ready by 2H24. This should help Intel regain manufacturing leadership. Intel said R&D for the node is on or ahead of milestones, imbuing confidence it can begin manufacturing on this node in 2024.
  • As we expect Intel to continue to be a sizeable AEM customer, we believe this news has long-term positive implications for Intel’s dominance and market share, and for demand for AEM’s equipment.


Riding on Intel’s spending plans; upbeat outlook

  • We see the 2022 ramp believe AEM is a beneficiary as back-end capacity will be needed. As Intel’s new Penang plant should begin operations in early FY24E, AEM could benefit from equipment shipment around 2H23, in our view.
