Neutral

$12.30

0.08%

First half profit of $164.3m for ALS Ltd exceeded the forecasts of Credit Suisse and consensus for $161.3m and $159.5m, respectively.

The broker had previously estimated a FY23 slowdown for the Commodities segment, but now postpones this to the 2H of FY24. While this lowers FY24 EPS estimates, FY25 forecasts rise, as the same duration and recovery profile remain.

Unlike management, the analyst doesn't believe the cyclical effect in the business has been eliminated as yet (via a higher Life Sciences contribution and increased battery minerals exposure).

The Neutral rating is retained, while the target slips to $12.30 from $12.60.

FORECAST
Credit Suisse forecasts a full year FY23 dividend of 39.20 cents and EPS of 65.34 cents.
Credit Suisse forecasts a full year FY24 dividend of 41.10 cents and EPS of 68.27 cents.
