Investment view: Initiate with a BUY rating and $1.00 PT
We initiate coverage of COSOL, with a buy recommendation and a 12 month price target of $1.00. The price target is generated from a blend of three valuation methodologies we apply to the company: DCF, EV/EBIT and PE Ratio. We have opted to apply a 10% premium, to the average EV/EBIT and PE multiples of the listed peers. While this premium may be considered moderate, we conclude that a moderate premium is warranted given the robust contract pipeline in Australia and North America with an ambitious growth agenda through organic means and acquisitions to sustain growth in the future. In our view COSOL shows value on a FY23 EV/EBIT and PE Ratio of <10x given the strong footprint and forecasted strong growth in FY24 and FY25.
