Courts Asia - Compelling valuations (DBSV)

Courts Asia
BUY S$0.615
STI : 3,167.43
Price Target : 12-Month S$ 0.77
Compelling valuations

• Opportunity to accumulate at current valuations
• Credit tightening factored into share price; likely to end post-FYE Mar’14
• Valuation attractive at -1SD, downside risk looks limited on our below consensus growth estimates
• Maintain BUY with S$0.77 TP

Valuations compelling.
We believe Courts’ share price has more than factored in the negative aspects. Since 27 October, the counter has corrected by c.26% from S$0.83. With valuation at an attractive 10.4x FY15F PE, we believe the sell down could be overdone. Its current share price implies a 28% total return upside to our TP, and PEG (FY14F–16F) looks compelling at c.0.5x.

Near-term caution factored in, and long-term drivers remain intact.
 While we were cautious post- 2Q14 on management’s credit tightening and earnings disappointment, this has largely been factored into our forecasts. Earnings are likely to remain soft for the next two quarters, since we expect Courts’ tight credit stance to continue in 2H14. However, we believe FY15F earnings should recover as we expect the company’s credit book to improve, leading the management to relax credit by the start of FY15F.

FY15F growth to be driven by new stores, relaxation of credit tightening.
While we project FYE Mar’14F to be weak, we are expecting 13.7% earnings growth for FY15F, driven by relaxation of credit tightening by the start of FY15F. New stores opened in Malaysia will also contribute for a full 12 months next year.

Maintain Buy with S$0.77 TP.
Our forecasts are below consensus and we see limited downside risk at these levels, with our below consensus FY15F earnings estimate of S$33m. Our TP is S$0.77, based on 13x FY15F PE.
