Serba Dinamiks share price expected to hit RM4.00

KUALA LUMPUR: International energy services group, Serba Dinamik Holdings Bhd has been exceeding expectations since it first listed in February, and UOB Kay Hian expects the group to maintain that momentum.

In a report published Monday, the research house put a target price of RM4.00 on Serba’s shares, an approximately 37 percent increase from the company’s current share price.

UOB says, Serba’s recurring maintenance revenue will be driven by high renewals in its orderbook which exceeds RM5 bil, as well as its plans to acquire assets. It says this will also be driven by Serba’s active international expansion and its current efforts to secure contracts from a RM10 bil global tenderbook.

The research house also remained bullish on Serba due to its continuous diversification of revenue, the latest being to penetrate Africa.

It says, Serba also has a diversified customer mix in its Operations & Maintenance (O&M) segment, ranging from refineries, power plants and liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants, making this revenue stream more resilient to industry cycles. It adds, Serba’s end-customers are also of high quality such as Petronas, Pertamina, Saudi Aramco, Qatar Gas, and Junaco.

UOB says, key to Serba’s growth from strength to strength was its entrance into the Middle East. First entering the region in 2001, Serba now has presence in 6 countries in the Middle East, contributing to more than 60 percent of its total revenue for the first nine months of 2017. This is compared to the revenue share from Malaysia which is below 30 percent, while orderbook tenures in the Middle East are also healthy at 1 to 5 years.

Going forward, UOB expects the group to sustain growth by leveraging on orderbook renewal, of which it has a track record of 20-30 percent success rate.

It says, this will be strengthened by asset ownership strategies and by its strategy to invest in joint ventures (25-40 percent stakes) of downstream plants and utilities.

Among the affected areas in George Town are Kampung Masjid, Jalan P. Ramlee, Sungai Pinang, Jalan Kebun Lama, Lebuh Carnovan, Jalan Anson, Halaman Bukit Gambira as well as Bayan Baru, Bayan Lepas, Batu Feringghi and Balik Pulau.

Reports from the Timur Laut Drainage and Irrigation Department stated that the water levels have reached danger levels in Sungai Pinang, Sungai Air Itam and Sungai Dondang.

One of the affected residents, Abdul Karim Abdul who resides in Jalan P. Ramlee said the flash floods in the area were just continuous, one after another, as every time there was heavy rain, their homes would be flooded.

“We are tired of the flash floods and hope the state government does something to solve our woes here… in this year so far, we were hit by floods more than 20 times.”

Flash floods have also caused traffic congestion in the vicinity of George Town, Bayan Lepas, Bayan Baru, Seberang Jaya, Bukit Mertajam and Juru, and led to the closure of several roads.
