SAC Capital analysts June Yap and Matthias Chan are encouraged by the 1QFY2024 ended March turnaround of precision plastics manufacturer, Fu Yu Corporation F13 -

, after the company reported a net profit of $5,200 compared to a net loss of $2.4 million a year ago.

For now, Yap and Chan have kept the stock unrated in their May 20 note.

“Previously a dominant force, the company had experienced stagnation in capabilities and manpower over the last 10 to 15 years,” writes Yap and Chan.

They add: “However, with a new team on board and a newly-opened smart factory, the group has revitalised its capabilities, enabling entry into new markets such as MedTech and internet-of-things (IoT) consumer electronics.”

Fu Yu Corp’s improved figures have come about from its supply chain arm achieving a $400,000 net profit in the 1QFY2024 and its significantly y-o-y reduced loss from $2.4 million to $400,000 in its manufacturing business.

The analysts point to the company’s strength of establishing a new products introduction (NPI) team and its four-level smart factory in Tuas as “significant advancements”, with the latter boasting reduced yield loss, minimised human error, and enhanced precision manufacturing levels.
