Thai Beverage : Dampened spirits (UBS)

Thai Beverage
12m price target S$0.51/US$0.40
Price S$0.61/US$0.48
Dampened spirits

􀂄Thailand’s leading beverage company; initiate coverage with a Sell rating
Thai Beverage (ThaiBev) is Thailand’s leading beverage company and one of the largest in Asia with c78%/32% of the Thai spirits/beer market in 2012E. To mitigate risk of overreliance on the Thai alcohol segment, it has diversified by acquiring Oishi Group, Sermsuk and Fraser and Neave (F&N). We initiate with a Sell, as we think valuations are rich and that there are specific risks ahead.


􀂄Rollback of rice subsidy and recent excise tax hike could hurt spirit sales
Spirit sales (ThaiBev’s key profit driver) are likely to weaken in tandem with the slowdown in broader consumer spending in Thailand. The government’s plan to lower the minimum guaranteed price of rice and the excise hike in 2012 could dampen sentiment and lower the disposable income of farmers/low-income workers who may either cut consumption or switch to cheaper home-made spirits.

􀂄F&N restructuring scenarios and potential risks for ThaiBev
The underlying value at which the individual businesses are transacted during the potential restructuring of F&N could be a near-term risk for ThaiBev’s shareholders. We discuss two possible scenarios in this report. In summary, the lower the transacted value of F&N’s property business, the more ThaiBev will have to pay TCC Assets (owned by ThaiBev’s chairman) as part of the proposed restructuring of F&N.

􀂄Valuation: sum-of-the-parts-based price target of S$0.51
We value the spirits and beer business using DCF (terminal growth of 3% and a WACC of 7.7%) and listed subsidiaries and associates (Oishi, Sermsuk and F&N– ex S$3.28 capital reduction) at market prices. We launch ThaiBev as a UBS Key Call Sell

合股做生意,则公司股份的业绩高于一切,而股票的价值决定于盈利。
价值是本,价格是末,故公司比股市重要百倍。
