SINGAPORE (May 28): Phillip Securities Research is keeping its “accumulate” call on Banyan Tree Holdings (BTH) with an unchanged target price of 76 cents, despite 1Q19 results that came in under expectations.

The target price translates to FY19e price to net asset value (P/NAV) of 0.7 times, and represents a total return of close to 45%.

Revenue fell 17% to $81.2 million from $98.2 million in 1Q18, mainly attributable to lower contributions from the Hotel Investments segment in the absence of revenue from Banyan Tree Seychelles, which was sold in Nov 2018, as well as from Banyan Tree Phuket due to ongoing renovations.
