EFERT: Dividend yield higher than 3yr PIB rate!, (AKD Daily, Aug 26, 2019)

  • We revisit our investment case on Engro Fertilizer Ltd (EFERT) post 2QCY19 results. While higher effective tax rate dragged the bottomline (2QCY19 EPS: PKR2.38, down 3/21% YoY/QoQ), a payout of PKR5.0/sh along with the result announcement surprised the market.
  • EFERT, being a concessionary gas player, has been benefitting from a series of Urea price hike (PKR220/bag) since Oct’18, pocketing in PKR95/bag (assuming GIDC settlement) higher than its counterpart FFC.
  • GIDC settlement (as per proposal), however, would limit higher-than-peer profits on a recurring basis (one-time +ve EPS impact of PKR4.04), trimming our average earnings estimates/TP for EFERT by 8%. Incorporating the same, EFERT will still trade at P/E of 6.25/5.68x in CY19/20F, while offering 15.25% D/Y, 104/92 bps higher than the 1yr T-Bill/ 3yr PIB rate.
