TCS Group Holdings Bhd - Construction Partner for Growth

Author:   |    Publish date:

TCS Group Holdings Bhd (“TCS”), is an established building and infrastructure construction services provider supported by strong orderbook of RM463.8m, providing earnings visibility over the next 3 years. TCS is set to debut on the ACE Market today, we recommend BUY with a target price of RM0.70 based on 9x PER FY21 as per closest industry players.

Incorporated in 1998, TCS is primarily involved in the provision of construction services for buildings, infrastructure, civil and structural works in Malaysia with track record of completing its construction projects ahead of schedule. Over the years, revenue growth was mainly centred on residential projects, as the segment contributed 77.9% to sales as compared to 22.1% from the commercial projects in FY2019. Project scope covers terrace houses, bungalows, apartments, condominiums, shop offices, shopping complex, high-rise and purpose-build buildings and other infrastructure works. TCS has achieved CAGR of 51% in revenue between 2017 and 2019 on the back of rising orderbook.

The group has established relationships with key clients notably IJM Land Group, Worldwide Holdings and Tropicana Group. As at 30 Apr 2020, unbilled order book stands at RM463.8m with visibility until FY23. Major on-going projects are located at Putrajaya (48.2%) and Kuala Lumpur (34.2%), including projects such as Putrajaya Sentral, Tropicana Urban Homes and Setia City Residences.

Bulk of the IPO proceeds (62.8% or RM13m) is earmarked for the purchase of new construction machinery and equipment, in line with the plans to expand its infrastructure construction segment as the segment contribution remains marginal for now. We believe this expansion will put the group in a better position, as we expect works resumption within the construction sector especially for infrastructure projects. RM4.2m of the funds will be used for working capital and RM3.5m is allocated for listing expenses.

The group has tender book worth of RM2.13bn, with historical success rate of 20%-30%. Post listing, balance sheet continues to be net cash position rising from RM18.5m to RM39.5m. There is no fixed dividend policy at this juncture. Moving forward, we expect the resumption of construction activities by the government especially in the infrastructure sector and TCS is in a strong position to ride on the expected recovery in the construction sector.
