Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition – July 1, 2020

Daily Market Reports | Jul 01 2020

This story features ALLIANCE AVIATION SERVICES LIMITED, and other companies. For more info SHARE ANALYSIS: AQZ

An additional news report on the recommendation, valuation, forecast and opinion changes for ASX-listed equities.

In addition to The Australian Broker Call Report, which is published and updated daily (Mon-Fri), FNArena has now added The Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition, featuring additional sources of research and insights on ASX-listed stocks, also enlarging the number of stocks that make up the FNArena universe.

One key difference is the *Extra* Edition will not be updated daily, but merely "regularly" depending on availability of suitable quality content. As such, the *Extra* Edition tries to build a bridge between daily updates via the Australian Broker Call Report and ad hoc news stories, that are not always timely for investors hungry for the next information update.

Investors using the *Extra* Edition as a source of input for their own share market research should thus take into account that information after publication may not be up to date, or yet awaiting another update by FNArena's team of journalists.

Similar to The Australian Broker Call Report, this *Extra* Edition includes concise but limited reviews of research recently published by Stockbrokers and other experts, which should be considered as information concerning likely market behaviour rather than advice on the securities mentioned. Do not act on the contents of this Report without first reading the important information included at the end of this Report.

The Australian Broker Call *Extra* Edition is a summary that has been prepared independently of the sources identified. Readers will check the full text of the recommendations and consult a Licenced Advisor before making any investment decision.

The copyright of this Report is owned by the publisher. Readers will not copy, forward or disseminate this Report to any other person. For more vital information about the sources included, see the bottom of this Report.

Transportation & Logistics – Overnight Price: $3.00

Wilsons rates ((AQZ)) as Market Weight (3) –

Alliance Aviation recently raised $92m and will be supplementing this by a share purchase plan worth $30m. The funds will primarily be used for acquiring aircraft and funding growth.

FY21 operating income is estimated to increase between 4-33% mostly with the fleet expansion being weighed down by new fleet costs. This will improve with operating leverage benefits kicking in from FY22 onwards.

Earnings have been downgraded for FY21-22 due to equity issuance and aircraft acquisition, while upgraded for FY23 by 10%.

Online sales grew by 57% in the second half (year to date till May 26th) and Wilsons estimates about 50% of the lost revenue from store closures will be diverted to online in FY21.

The broker upgrades FY21 operating income to $47.8m due to the lower cost of doing business and notes its forecasts are 21.5% above consensus. Online sales are estimated to grow by 31% in FY21 from 25% earlier.

The market within which Damstra operates, global workplace management solutions, is valued at US$16bn and is growing 6% per annum while the Australian market has a total addressable market estimated at US$0.6bn a year.

The broker considers the company to be a dynamic product for small and large enterprises and the US/international opportunity is key with the US’s market fragmented.

Most importantly, the broker expects Damstra Holdings to benefit from the pandemic as employee health and safety becomes of utmost importance. Thermal camera, tracking, site management, sign in, breath testing and asset management are offered by the company.

Health & Nutrition – Overnight Price: $0.16

Bell Potter rates ((EXL)) as Hold (3) –

The pandemic has not been kind to Elixinol Global which saw most of its Board and CEO leaving along with senior staff in the US. This was driven by poor revenues post December 2019.

Bell Potter points the company has had to raise capital at a heavily discounted price, which has led to considerable dilution and the company has started to reduce employees.

Elixinol has appointed Oliver Horn as CEO with experience in growing nutraceuticals across Australia and the US. The pandemic isn’t helping with the broker expecting revenues got hit materially in the June quarter.

The broker highlights the company has adequate capital for trading purposes, but is reliant on a recovery in US revenues in the near term. The company might need to go in for more capital raising if its costs are not reduced, thinks the broker.

GEM    G8 EDUCATION LIMITED

Childcare – Overnight Price: $0.88

Wilsons rates ((GEM)) as Upgrade to Overweight from Market Weight (1) –

G8 Education’s update notes physical occupancy of 53%, considered an encouraging sign by Wilsons. The key catalysts will be the end of free childcare from July 2020 and the end of JobKeeper from September 2020, reminds the broker.

FY20-21 forecasts for operating income have been increased by the broker who expects the second half occupancy to be 54.7% with the third quarter operating income estimated at $6m, driven by occupancy in July and government funding.

The broker expects the end of free childcare will lead to occupancy declining to 50% in August. A significant part of the underperforming centres portfolio may be sold in the near term, expects the broker.
