Sembcorp Industries (SCI SP)

The Curious Case Of India’s High Spot Prices


Spot electricity prices continue to climb on undersupply of thermal coal for power generation. CIL is raising production but current efforts appear to be hindered by weather. Current dynamics may see high spot prices persist longer than expected. Even assuming coal supply reverts to normal (and spot prices fall), India remains on track to break even or return a profit for 2018. No change to earnings forecasts for now. Maintain BUY with an unchanged target price of S$3.41.

Mapletree Logistics Trust:

Consolidating its stronghold in Singapore


Mapletree Logistics Trust (MLT) recently completed the acquisition of a portfolio of five modern ramp-up logistics properties in Singapore from CWT Pte Ltd. The total acquisition cost was ~S$804.2m, which was partially funded by a private placement exercise. The acquisition of this portfolio is expected to contribute an initial NPI yield of 6.2%. CWT will become MLT’s top tenant, providing ~9.5% of its gross revenue. To address concerns of potential concentration risk, we note that ~30% of CWT’s gross revenue to MLT will be contributed by third party end-users under sub-leases. Meanwhile, MLT’s sponsor, Mapletree Investments, has been active in expanding its global logistics footprint. While this provides MLT with a potential acquisition pipeline, we believe its focus over the near-term will remain on the APAC region. Thereafter, management would likely be open to exploring opportunities in new markets, in our view. Factoring the recent acquisition in our model, we raise our fair value estimate from S$1.34 to S$1.37. Maintain BUY.
