Sunningdale Tech kept at 'hold' with recovery expected in 2H19

SINGAPORE (May 9): UOB KayHian and CGS-CIMB Securities have “hold” calls on Sunningdale Tech, the manufacturer of precision plastic components.

Sunningdale’s 1Q19 earnings missed UOB’s expectations with core net profit declining 70% from a year ago.

Revenue fell 5.6% y-o-y, due to a 15% y-o-y decline in the automotive segment, while the other segments remained stable.

UOB analyst John Cheong says Sunningdale’s new plants continue to affect operations.

At its new Penang plant, utilisation levels were low as the plant is still in its initial startup phase.
