Target Change18/01/2021

All focus shifts to the battery promise

Change in Target PriceCHF 12.5 vs 7.52+66.9%

Change in EPS2020 : CHF 0.38 vs 0.38
2021 : CHF 0.27 vs 0.50-46.3%

Near-term performance estimates (particularly for 2021) reset materially lower – due to the delayed kick-start at the non-battery divisions.

Change in NAVCHF 24.6 vs 12.4+97.4%

Battery’s valuation has been re-assessed (using GAV methodology) in our NAV, with the division’s EV now resetting at CHF1.1bn. This takes on board Blackstone’s R&D progress plus KPMG’s divisional assessment (of February 2020).

Change in DCFCHF 4.12 vs 3.66+12.4%

Considering the battery R&D progress, the out-year EBITDA growth estimate has been increased to 6% (vs. 5.5% earlier). However, given the near-term spending binge, which is expected to result in negative FCFs, the DCF upside is limited.
