Best World International (BEST SP)

Strong momentum in China

c.5% EPS beat from China strength; raise TP by 7%

1H17 EPS beat our estimate by c.5%, at 52% of our FY17E, as higher net margin China sales outperformed. 4Q is the seasonally strongest quarter. In 2Q17, China sales grew 125% YoY and 24% QoQ, due to strong demand for DR’s Secret skin care products. This more than compensates the softer sales in Taiwan, which fell 34% YoY, due to more promotions done in 2016. We expect China’s momentum to continue from further geographical expansion. We raised our FY17-19E EPS by 6-7% after increasing out China sales forecast. Maintain BUY and our TP increased by 7% to SGD1.88, pegged to an unchanged 19x FY18E EPS (PEG of 0.7x using FY16-19E EPS CAGR of 27%). We ascribed c.30% discount to the PEG of 1.0x for regulatory risks and competition.

Sponge City Project Is Underway

PATMI surged 81% YoY, led by stronger revenue, tariff hikes and the absence of forex losses. With the sponge city project underway, we believe FY17 would continue to be a strong year for the company.
