$11.10

0.36%

FY22 results were in line with Credit Suisse estimates. The pay-out of $0.53 per security represents 58% of operating cash flow and was below the target of 60-70%. The broker is disappointed with the guidance for 4% growth in FY23, given CPI revenue indexation.

APA Group's reasoning is that it also needs to fund organic growth, avoiding calls on equity. Neutral rating maintained. Target increases to $11.10 from $9.60 because of higher inflation and growth that more than offsets an increase in the discount rate.

FORECAST
Credit Suisse forecasts a full year FY23 dividend of 55.00 cents and EPS of 25.88 cents.
Credit Suisse forecasts a full year FY24 dividend of 57.20 cents and EPS of 31.95 cents.
