Sorry guys, was late
on this reporting since I was overseas for the past week. 

Read an article on
Swissco 10 Apr title “Double Bagger, Literally” and decided to blog again on Swissco. 
Refer to report here

My Portfolio

I had own Swissco stocks since end 2010 at S$0.32 and had since sold at S$0.38 early this year, making a meager profit of close to 6.5% p.a. including dividends. 

On 17 Mar, its share price tumbled from S$0.39 to S$0.32 and I blogged on a buy again?
The fortunate news for me is I accumulated 20 lots at S$0.34. The unfortunate news however is, the accumulation is much lesser than the 50 lots I used to own.  

Since 8 Apr, price of Swissco had increased more than 25% from S$0.34 to S$0.425.

Will it really be a Double Bagger by End 2014 or 2015?


The following is the summary of the Analyst report. 

The analyst expect 10% growth in OSV and no new addition to its service rig fleet at fair value S$0.36 (7x CY15 P/E). Incorporating Scott & English, The range could go up to S$0.59 (10x CY15 P/E) if one new service rig is added in FY15 with six months earnings contribution.

After the S&E deal is completed, Swissco will have an enlarged share capital of 670.1m shares and market capitalization of S$422m (from S$160m currently). Kim Seng Holdings’ stake in Swissco will increase from 17% to 73%.

Mini Ezion

The report states
Swissco is going to be a mini-Ezion. Seems like this report is 3 weeks late
compare to my Blog Post earlier. Refer here

Fleet and Contract    
S&E owns and
operates a fleet of four service rigs via a 50/50 JV with Ezion, three for
Pemex and one for Saudi Aramco). Calculation shows that the fleet of four
service rigs generates strong Free Cash Flow to Equity (FCFE)
of ~S$14-16m
and can be potentially used to fund future fleet expansion.

Success of Kim Seng Holdings

Will not elaborate on
this since I had previously already blogged on Tan KS success on KS Energy sale
and his influence in Rig segment.

More Pemex Contracts

PEMEX is state oil
company of Mexico. Refer to Clarkson Mar 2014 report,  PEMEX is still hunger chase for Service Rigs. 
Tan KS relationship
with PEMEX started more than 10 years back to the highest management, from reliable sources I know.

Share Placement to Fund Growth

Share placement could
be the fastest avenue to grow the service rigs’ business as Swissco’s current
net gearing is expected to rise to 0.9x (from 0.6x in FY13) by end-14.

OSV Expands 3-Folds since 2011

Earnings from this
division tripled from S$8m in FY11 to S$23m in FY13, thanks to its chartering
fleet expansion/renewal and maritime services (build-to-stock vessels’ sale).
Swissco has 34 vessels in its fleet currently. I
t will take delivery of six more vessels by end-2014 and four in 2015.

Profit to Double to S$46M by FY15

With no new service
rigs, our base case scenario of 10% revenue growth from Swissco’s existing OSV 
business plus the
asset injection of existing S&E’s contracts could double Swissco’s net
profit to S$46m by FY15.

28% Further Upside for Every Service Rig added

For every US$80m
service rig added to its fleet with similar contract terms as its Pemex
contract (US$149m over seven years), Swissco’s estimate earnings could grow by S$13m p.a
or 28%
(on a 100% stake). 

Cheap against Peers

Incorporating S&E,
Swissco = 7.6x CY14 P/E,  vs
OSV peers’ ave 10.4x CY14 P/E. It is also 
trading below its
3-year average of 9x. 
The 7.6x PE is base on 10 Apr price of S$0.35. Prices had since increase to S$0.425 closing 17 Apr 2014.
