Bimb Research Highlights
  • We recently met with the management team of MTL Group (MTL), a 70%-owned subsidiary of Dancomech Holdings Berhad (Dancomech). Following the meeting, we remain optimistic on Dancomech Metal Stamping Division given solid demand for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and metal furniture productssubsequent to the lifting of Movement Control order (MCO) and reopening of international borders.
  • We expect revenue for Metal Stamping Division to grow by 40% to RM108.5mn in 2022, overtaking the Trading Division. However, a relatively low gross profit margin of between 10% - 12% for the division could put a cap to earnings.
  • Maintain a HOLD call on Dancomech at unchanged TP of RM0.37 pegged at 10x PER to 3.7 sen FY23F EPS.

According to management, MTL production lines are currently hitting a maximum capacity of 90-95% primarily to clear the backlog orders for HVAC parts and components as well as to catersfor new orders for metal furniture products following the lifting of movement restriction and reopening of international borders. For HVAC parts and components, MTL can produce up to 2.3mn units per month, with around 90% of productions dominated by two prominent players within the HVAC industry.
