RHB Research maintains Neutral on Affin, FV RM4.30

KUALA LUMPUR: RHB Research is maintaining its Neutral outlook on Affin Holdings with fair value of RM4.30.

It said on Tuesday that preserving asset quality still appears to be its key focus, which means loans growth is likely to remain modest.

“Further details (for example integration costs and synergies) on the HwangDBS IB deal will only be forthcoming after financial closure. That aside, we think net profit growth would be under pressure due to normalising credit costs,” it said.

Alliance Research maintains Neutral on Affin Holding

KUALA LUMPUR: Alliance Research is maintaining its Neutral call on Affin Holdings Bhd, trimming its target price to RM4.35 from RM4.57.

The research house said on Wednesday that post earnings revision, it was maintaining a 10% discount on its valuation model to reflect the earnings dilution from its equity raising exercise to acquire Hwang-DBS's selective assets.

The target price implied a 1.0 times FY14 price-to-book and a sustainable 9.9% return on equity based on Alliance Research's Gordon Growth valuation model.

Earnings estimates will also be adjusted to reflect the dilutive impact from the enlarged share base once the right issue price and number of new shares to be issued are determined.

"The group does not see stress in its hire purchase portfolio. We understand that its current portfolio comprises 80% new car and 80% non-national car segments, which so far have not experienced any material deterioration in the asset quality. As such, management remains comfortable of growing its hire purchase portfolio given that the group has already adopted a stringent credit underwriting policy," Alliance said.

Presently, Alliance Research's computation shows that should Affin fix its rights issue price at 10% discount to its last closing price of RM4.09, the group will need to issue about 340mil shares to raise RM1.25bil, which represent about 23% of its current share base.

Assuming that there are no substantial synergistic benefits to be yielded from the acquisitions in the immediate term, this could dilute the group's forward earnings per share by about 11%.

The research house said the potential earnings dilution for Affin will vary depending of the number of new shares to be issued by the group; should the group fix its right issue price at 25% (rather than 10%) discount to its last closing price of RM4.09, the group will need to issue about 410m new shares, representing about 27% of its current share base.

CIMB Research lowers Affin target price to RM3.46

KUALA LUMPUR: CIMB Equities Research has lowered the target price of Affin Holdings to RM3.46 when it has completed its acquisition of HwangDBS Investment Bank (HDIB).

It said on Wednesday the target price was lower than the theoretical ex-price of RM3.71.

At the briefing on Tuesday, it said Affin targeted synergies of RM84mil in FY15-17 and RM43mil per annum starting from FY18 from the acquisition of HDIB.

“Factoring in the synergies, we think that the deal would still be dilutive, though the EPS dilution could be reduced from 12-15% to 10-12%. Our DDM-based target price (cost of equity of 12.7%; long term growth of 4%) is intact.

“The stock is still rated as Reduce due to its 1) below-industry loan growth, 2) suppressed margins, 3) upturn in credit costs, and 4) EPS dilution from the HDIB deal. We prefer RHB Capital in the Malaysian banking space,” said CIMB Research.
