ANALYSTS OPTIMISTIC ON MAH SING SALES CONFIDENCE, DC EXPANSION

25/06/2024 11:37 AM

KUALA LUMPUR, June 25 (Bernama) -- MIDF Amanah Investment Bank Bhd has reiterated its "buy" recommendation on Mah Sing Group Bhd, citing the firm's confidence in achieving its RM2.5 billion sales target for financial year 2024 and its expansion into the data centre business.

The research firm highlighted Mah Sing's plans for seven property launches in the latter half of this year, emphasising that 72 per cent of its M Series projects are priced below RM500,000, making them attractive in the current market.

"Meanwhile, Mah Sing is looking to expand its product range to mid-high or high-end markets, as demand for higher-end properties is growing amid an improving outlook for the property sector," MIDF said in a research note today.

Additionally, Mah Sing is enhancing its industrial portfolio with the establishment of MSS Business Park in Sepang, responding to rising demand for industrial properties in Malaysia.

Mah Sing has allocated 607.43 hectares of land in Southville City, Bangi, for its Mah Sing data centre (DC) Hub.

"The diversification into DC aims to increase Mah Sing's recurring income. Mah Sing is expected to hold approximately a 20 per cent stake in the data centre collaboration, with estimated earnings contributions of RM25 million per annum from FY2026 onwards," MIDF added.

MIDF has maintained its Mah Sing’s earnings forecast for FY2024/FY2025 but adjusted the FY2026 forecast upwards by 6.4 per cent to reflect contributions from the DC venture with Bridge Data Centres.

"We have revised our target price (TP) for Mah Sing to RM1.94, up from RM1.83 previously," it said.

Meanwhile, RHB Investment Bank Bhd has also maintained its "buy" rating on Mah Sing, raising its TP to RM2.26 from RM2.00, citing a 35 per cent upside potential and three per cent yield.

"With Mah Sing securing its 500 megawatt power allocation last week, we expect this supply certainty to significantly enhance the value of Mah Sing DC Hub @ Southville City.

"This development is likely to attract other data centre operators, prompting us to increase our TP to reflect the higher value of the DC Hub land," it said.

At 10.13 am, Mah Sing shares rose two sen to RM1.69, with trading volume reaching 9.52 million shares.
