Electrolux (Hold, TP: SEK240.00) - An in-depth look at the spin-off

Electrolux’s announcement on Friday that it is planning to spin off Professional Products came as a complete surprise to us. In this note we will take a closer look at the asset, which in our view is the company’s crown jewel. We value the business at SEK60/share. Remain-co should be a margin improvement story, but we will probably have to wait at least a year before we see any progress. We keep our HOLD recommendation but have raised our target price to SEK240 (220).

With a more favourable environment, ELECTROLUX AB improves to Slightly Positive

ELECTROLUX AB (SE), a company active in the Durable Household Products industry, is favoured by a more supportive environment. The independent financial analyst theScreener has confirmed the fundamental rating of the title, which shows 4 out of 4 stars, as well as its unchanged, moderately risky market behaviour. The title leverages a more favourable environment and raises its general evaluation to Slightly Positive. As of the analysis date February 1, 2019, the closing price was SEK 235.90 and its potential was estimated at SEK 247.70.

Electrolux (Hold, TP: SEK220.00) - Better times ahead is in the price

Although Electrolux’s earnings growth prospects look better than they have in a long time, we have lowered our recommendation to HOLD (Buy) and set our new target price at SEK220 (215). In theory, H2 2019e should be a period of falling input costs while selling prices remain high, which should lead to solid margin improvement. However, it is uncertain how the consumer will react to announced price increases given cyclically high demand and new purchasing patterns driven by e-commerce.

Christer Magnergård

Electrolux (Buy, TP: SEK215.00) - No help from external factors

Despite facing some headwinds from FX, raw material costs, and tariffs, we believe Electrolux should still report decent profitability in 2018e and in 2019e. Although the headwinds seem larger than what we previously forecast (resulting in c11% lower 2019 EPS estimates), we believe the company should be able to report improving EBIT. As the shares are trading at 0.4x EV/sales, we believe the risk-reward is positive. We retain our BUY with a SEK215 (240) target price.

Christer Magnergård

Electrolux (Buy, TP: SEK240.00) - Always outnumbered, never outgunned

Electrolux continues to battle external headwinds; we expect FX and raw material costs totalling SEK775m YOY in Q3. Nonetheless, we see Electrolux continuing to perform well, and achieve close to 6% EBIT margins in 2018. Looking at 2019, we believe the group should be able to more than offset costs related to tariffs with further cost savings and improved price/mix. We have trimmed our target price to SEK240 (265) and reiterate BUY.

Christer Magnergård

Electrolux (Buy, TP: SEK265.00) - Increased quality

We note increased profitability stability and believe that the company is becoming increasingly agile in its work to offset headwinds by adjusting costs or raising prices. We look for close to 6% EBIT margins this year, despite a SEK2.5bn headwind from FX and raw material costs, in addition to US tariffs, higher logistic costs and cost inflation on components. At a 2019e EV/sales of 0.44x, we find the valuation undemanding and keep our BUY and SEK265 target price.
