TAIWAN Pegatron 4938 TT Outperform Price (at 05:46, 19 Mar 2013 GMT) NT$43.80 Solid phase II of its turnaround 12-month target NT$ 55.00 Event Upside/Downside % 25.6 We reiterate our OP rating on Pegatron but raise our SOTP-based TP to Valuation NT$ 55.00 NT$55 from NT$51, given our now more positive view (vs our - Sum of Parts GICS sector recommendation upgrade note on 24 Jan) on its iPhone mini shipments and Technology Hardware & Equipment our higher 2013 margins and EPS assumption for its core as well as non-core Market cap NT$m 100,302 (mainly Casetek) business. Pegatron remains our top pick in the ODM/EMS 30-day avg turnover US$m 17.6 space. Market cap US$m 3,371 Number shares on issue m 2,290 Impact Solid 1st source position in iPhone mini: While we believe Pegatron will be Investment fundamentals the major supplier of Apple’s iPhone mini products, we now expect its Year end 31 Dec 2011A 2012E 2013E 2014E shipments to likely come in higher than our original forecast of 7–8m units per Revenue bn 500.6 768.1 930.1 1,075.2 quarter (from late 3Q13). We believe the company will also face lower risk of Reported profit bn 0.1 6.1 9.8 11.6 Profit bonus exp bn 0.1 6.1 9.8 11.6 product transition in iPhone mini, given its progress along the learning curve Bon exp/rep profit % 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 and good execution on iPhone 4/4S production. We forecast Pegatron’s Adjusted profit bn 0.1 6.1 9.8 11.6 EPS rep NT$ 0.05 2.71 4.36 5.13 iPhone order allocation from Apple may approach 18–20% in 2013 (up from EPS rep growth % -98.2 5,392.9 61.3 17.5 <10% in 2012), and expect this increase in shipments to expand its OPM. EPS bonus exp NT$ 0.05 2.71 4.36 5.13 EPS bonus growth % -98.2 5,392.9 61.3 17.5 iPad mini demand better than expected: The street expects the iPad mini’s PER rep x 889.4 16.2 10.0 8.5 PER bonus exp x 889.4 16.2 10.0 8.5 sales to decline from 12m units in 1Q13 to 8-10m in 2Q13, due to the launch Total DPS NT$ 1.45 0.00 1.42 0.00 of re-fresh models in late 3Q12. However, our checks indicate that iPad mini Total div yield % 3.3 0.0 3.2 0.0 ROA % -1.9 0.7 2.0 2.7 demand in 2Q13 remain strong, thanks to its better sales from emerging ROE % 0.1 6.5 9.7 10.5 countries, especially in Asia. While we expect Pegatron’s 2Q13 iPad mini EV/EBITDA x 115.5 14.4 8.9 6.9 Net debt/equity % 10.9 25.1 32.4 29.2 sales to likely come in better than consensus estimate, we think its improving P/BV x 1.1 1.0 0.9 0.9 profit (from the break-even in Dec. 2012) could translate to earnings upside. 4938 TT rel TAIEX performance, & rec Consensus expectation on NB business too cautious: We believe history management’s guidance of 1Q13 NB shipments (-20-25% QoQ) is too conservative and think the street is still underestimating its success in producing more high-margin touch NBs for brand clients to improve its product mix. This explains how Pegatron can still maintain its OPM from the NB business above the breakeven point despite its slowing shipments. Rising EPS upside risks from Casetek: Pegatron still owns ~69% of Casetek shares post its IPO. Hence, Casetek’s strong earnings momentum will continue to support Pegatron’s EPS growth going forward. We also believe Pegatron’s management may consider selling some of its holdings to Note: Recommendation timeline - if not a continuous line, then there was no help increase Casetek’s free float and to realise some disposal income.
