RAM Ratings revises outlook on YTL Power to stable on improved earnings and credit quality, reaffirms AA1 ratings
Published on 18 Jan 2023.
RAM Ratings has revised YTL Power International Berhad’s (YTLPI or the Group) long-term rating outlook to stable from negative while concurrently reaffirming the AA1 ratings of its RM5 bil Medium-Term Notes Programme (2011/2036) and RM2.5 bil Sukuk Murabahah Facility (2017/2027).
The Group is a diversified conglomerate, operating on two continents and in multiple business lines, with a solid track record in concession businesses. The outlook revision reflects the turnaround of YTLPI’s power generation business in Singapore which led to improved earnings diversity, as well as the better than expected dividend paying capacity of its water and sewerage segment. Its financial metrics outperformed expectations following the successful disposal of YTLPI’s stake in ElectraNet Pty Ltd, which we did not factor in previously. The sale substantially boosted cash reserves and unexpectedly moderated the Group’s debt level. Going forward, YTLPI’s operating cashflow (OCF) to net debt cover is projected to be above 0.40 times, supportive of the AA1 ratings. YTLPI’s company-level OCF to net debt coverage ratio came in at 0.64 times in FY June 2022 (FY June 2021: 0.51 times), exceeding our expectations of 0.14 times.
Figure 1: Pre-tax profit boosted by disposal gain
Note: Figures above the bars indicate the respective years’ pre-tax profit.
The Group’s pre-tax profit more than doubled to RM1.37 bil in FY June 2022, largely anchored by the gain on the disposal of ElectraNet and the stronger earnings of its power generation business in Singapore. Looking ahead, we expect continued improvement in the power generation business (owing to improved efficiency after the integration of its newly acquired Tuaspring plant as well as easing industry reserve margin) and the relatively sustained earnings of its UK water and sewerage segment to support core earnings growth.
The Group’s ability to monetise assets and investments to support post-pandemic earnings recovery supports the benefit given to its robust financial flexibility in our assessment. The divestment of its stake in ElectraNet at a gain of RM1.3 bil in FY June 2022 is testament to management’s investment capabilities and value creation. The disposal allows capital to be redeployed to new businesses/investments and curtail added leverage risk.
The Group’s liquidity profile stayed superior, backed by RM6.83 bil of unencumbered cash reserves as at end-June 2022. The ratings consider the Group’s strong financial flexibility, with a sizeable net realisable asset value (RNAV) of around RM30 bil against company-level debts of RM7.52 bil as at the same date. Potentially weighing on YTLPI’s financial metrics is the sizeable capital outlay for new investments and not accompanied by immediate earnings or a dividend uplift. While this will be revisited as more details become available, the Group’s proven investment capabilities and risk appetite track record are reassuring from a credit perspective.

Interest picks up in Penang-based Ewein as share price and volume rise
TheEdge Tue, Feb 07, 2023 04:00pm - 6 days
MAIN Market-listed Ewein Bhd appears to be back on investors’ radar screens as shares of the property developer have risen by 64% since Jan 13, to a 52-month intra-day high of 57.5 sen apiece on Jan 19. Shares of the company also saw heavy trading volume from Jan 13 to 19.
What could be brewing at the Penang-based property developer, whose founder and executive chairman Datuk Ewe Swee Kheng committed suicide in October 2021? It is worth noting that his brother, Ewe Swee Kiat, resigned as the group’s non-executive director on Nov 17, 2022, to “pursue other business interests and personal commitments”, according to a filing with Bursa Malaysia. Swee Kiat, a lawyer, was appointed to the board on Nov 18, 2021.
His sister Ewe Lay Khim, who was made executive chairman also on Nov 18, 2021, remains in her position at the time of writing. A chemist by training, she was appointed a non-independent non-executive director at Ewein on May 27, 2015.
“The industry has been hearing about a boardroom restructuring at the company with a new shareholder emerging. However, there are no details on who that might be,” a market observer says.
According to its 2022 annual report, Ewein’s largest shareholder as at April 5, 2022, was Hijauwasa Sdn Bhd with a direct interest of 39.99%.
Thus far, there has been no announcement on any shareholder changes since Oct 1, 2021, when the company disclosed that a 39.99% stake, or 37.5 million Ewein shares, had been transferred from Amsec Nominess (Tempatan) Sdn Bhd to Hijauwasa.
Hijauwasa is the private vehicle of the late Swee Kheng.
A check with the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) shows that Hijauwasa is still held by the Ewe family. The group has no other major substantial shareholders.

KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 13): NationGate Holdings Bhd’s share price breached the RM1 mark and jumped 11% in early morning trade on Friday (Jan 13), merely a day after a firm start on the ACE Market of Bursa Malaysia.
At the time of writing, the stock was up five sen to RM1.05 a share, with 89.96 million shares done. The stock earlier rose to a high of RM1.11.
The electronics manufacturing service provider debuted on the ACE Market on Thursday, closing at RM1 against its initial public offering (IPO) price of 38 sen — a premium of 163.16%.
The opportunities in voluntary carbon markets and nature-based solutions
The scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have observed that global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions must peak by 2025 at the latest if we were to restrict global temperature rise to 1.5°C by 2100. This would help the world achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
Its trading volume was 654.92 million, while its market capitalisation stood at RM2.07 billion, making it the largest IPO on the ACE Market to date.
UOB Kay Hian Securities on Wednesday (Jan 11) initiated coverage of NationGate with a "buy" rating at 38 sen, and a target price of 98 sen, and said the stock was listing at an undemanding 13.8 times 2021 price-earnings.
The research house said it sees multiple legs of growth that can supercharge a three-year revenue/core net profit compound annual growth rate of 24%/30%, premised on cross value-chain integration, trade-diversion related supply chain reconfiguration, and aggressive expansionary plans.
“While NationGate can offer high-mix low-volume and low-mix high volume production set-ups, its strategic diversification towards recession-proof segments has borne fruition, especially amid the current economic downturn," the research house added.
With a boss who knows how to speculate in stocks, you don't have to worry about the stock price not rising.

UOB bullish on Oppstar, initiates coverage with TP of RM2.28
KUALA LUMPUR (March 14): Ahead of Oppstar Bhd’s listing on the ACE Market on Wednesday (March 15), UOB Kay Hian has initiated coverage on the integrated circuit (IC) design service provider with a 'buy' call and a target price (TP) of RM2.28.
UOB analyst Desmond Chong said he derived his valuation on Oppstar, the first-ever listed local IC design house, based on 50 times forecasted FY2024 price-to-earnings ratio (PER).
“As there is no comparable local listed peers for valuation purposes, our valuation yardstick is based on a 10% premium of its global peers’ average two-year forward PER,” he said in a note on Tuesday.
GrabFood introduces Saver Delivery – lowest delivery fee from the widest range of restaurants
GrabFood Malaysia is revamping its delivery options to enhance its affordability and accessibility for Malaysians. This includes expanding the Saver Delivery option to additional cities nationwide beginning today, providing a lower delivery fee option for consumers across the country.
Touching on Oppstar’s initial public offering (IPO) price of 63 sen — which is valued at 19.6 times FY2023 PER — Chong said the research house sees ample upside and expects a three-year net profit compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35% from FY2022, at an undemanding price-to-earnings to growth (PEG) ratio of 0.5 times.
“Blue-sky valuation if pricing at two times PEG ratio (average peak PEG valuation of tech names during the tech run in 2021) suggest potentially higher TP of RM3.20 (at 70 times FY2024F PER).
Chong said Oppstar is to benefit from the US-China tech war given that Washington banned IC design giants AMD and Nvidia from exporting their advanced AI ships to China due to potential military use.
“Capitalising on the geopolitical neutrality, we believe Oppstar has the upper hand. It is noteworthy that Oppstar has secured its first AI ASIC projects from China customers in 2020 and has received enquiries from its China customers on specific design and turnkey design services.
“In terms of market share, by looking at the size of global IC design sales (2021: RM819 billion), Oppstar’s revenue of RM50.5 million was only at a meagre 0.0062%,” he said.
In comparison, PublicInvest Research on March 3 pegged a fair value of 92 sen on Oppstar based on a 23 times PER to its FY2024 forecasted earning per share of four sen.
Last week, Oppstar announced that its shares offered to the public under the IPO were oversubscribed by 77.05 times, with 39,103 applications for 2.48 billion shares received for the 31.81 million shares made available.
The 22.27 million shares made available for its eligible directors, employees, and business associates were fully subscribed, while the 31.88 million shares made available for application by way of private placement to selected investors were also fully taken up.
The 79.53 million shares made available to Bumiputera investors approved by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry by way of private placement were also fully subscribed.
