Yoma Strategic Holdings: Buoyed by FV gains from telco towers stake

Yoma Strategic Holdings’ 2QFY17 PATMI increased YoY to S$8.5m from S$0.3m mainly due to S$14.7m of fair value gains on its stake in its telecommunications tower investment and stronger contributions from the sale of residences/LDR and real estate rental and services. In terms of the topline, group revenues similarly increased 25.2% given growth across the group’s real estate, automotive and equipment, and consumer businesses. We judge this quarter’s results to be broadly within expectations. To recap, Yoma is currently in the midst of spinning off its tourism-related business as part of an RTO of SHC Capital Asia Ltd. After the exercise, Yoma is expected to be issued 167m shares valued at an aggregate of S$43.9m which gives the group a shareholding of 53.5% in SHC before taking into account any shareholding effects arising from any proposed compliance placement of SHC. We highlight that the proposed exercise is subject to condition precedents and further approvals from relevant authorities. Maintain HOLD with an unchanged fair value estimate of S$0.54.

Singapore Banks Post-3Q16:

Focus On Revenue Driving topline growth

Singapore banks are now driving topline growth to offset more provisions that need to be set aside in the face of worsening asset quality. Post- 3Q16, aside from asset quality deterioration, we saw:

1) banks gaining market share in domestic loans/finding new sources of loan growth;

2) falling customer spreads; and

3) higher non-interest income (non-II) and better cost management can cushion overall impact to earnings.

We want to assess the drivers of topline growth for 3Q16.
