Morningstar | Kion Group in Pole Position to Benefit From E-commerce Growth and Warehouse Automation

As a market leader in forklift manufacturing, Kion is already well positioned to benefit from growing e-commerce. Given this, combined with its Dematic acquisition, we think the company will offer attractive long-term revenue growth and increasing returns. Despite rapid growth, e-commerce still accounts for only a small portion of global retail sales, just 12% in the United States and near 14% in China. The low penetration levels suggest a long runway for growth, as we believe forklift sales will naturally follow the expansion of warehouses needed to support an e-commerce supply chain. Kion an...

Morningstar | KGX Updated Forecasts and Estimates from 28 Feb 2019

Kion reported a solid 2018, coming in line on revenue and EBIT with growth of 5% and 6%, respectively. We continue to find the shares attractive and maintain our EUR 90 fair value estimate. While the shares are up 20% year to date, they trade at 12 times 2019 consensus earnings estimates, well below the sector average. We think the gap will close with greater earnings consistency and as the market becomes more adept at judging the longer-order-book Dematic (supply chain solutions) business. Management's midpoint guidance of 10 basis points of margin expansion looks achievable if not low, give...

Expert Corporate Governance Service (ECGS)

KION Group - AGM 09 May 2019

Item 5: Deloitte, Munich, is proposed as auditor for the current financial year. We have no concerns over the ratio of non-audit/audit fees. However, we note that Deloitte has audited the Company since the financial year 2007 which exceeds our maximum acceptable term of office of 10 years. We therefore recommend opposing the re-election of Deloitte as auditor. Items 6.1 and 6.2: We recommend to oppose the election of Michael Macht and Tan Xuguang to the Supervisory Board due to our concerns over the insufficient independent representation on the Board.
