Ezion - FY14 Result - Feb 2015

According to latest result released by Ezion this month, it had achieved net profit of US$223M on the back of revenue of US$380M, which includes one time off net profit of US$30M plus from disposal gain of marine assets to Aus Group which is one of the associate companies. This is translated to EPS of about S$0.184 or trailing PE of about 6.5 times.

Based on research reports released by different stock broking firms, the result could be better if not the delay of some of the service rig projects. According to the forecast, the revenue could double up once 37 of the fleets could be fully utilized on or after year 2016. The core net profit is about US$177M, so if it could be doubled up in 3 years up, the net profit could be about US$354M or EPS US$0.22. I believe that the share price of Ezion could move up gradually once the current crude oil crisis can be ended latest by second half of the year or next year.

Some experts are expecting a drop of crude oil to US$20 before moving up later as OPEC countries are fighting against US oil producers as the oil storage hit record high recently. It is now about US$50/barrel for US oil and US$60/barrel for international oil.

Nonetheless, Ezion is investing mainly liftboat / service rigs business in Asia / Europe / Africa zone, where it is relatively new and full of opportunities as compared to Mexico / US zone. Hopefully with a better crude oil price next year, the PE valuation can be increased later as well.
