The company’s profitability continues to grow.

Specifically, the net profit margin attributable to shareholders in 4Q22 was 11.82%, up 0.60pps year-on-year. This is likely due to the cost savings as a result of the scale effect of the wardrobe business and the internal cost reduction of the kitchen cabinet and wardrobe business.
The gross profit margin of the wardrobe and kitchen cabinet business in the first three quarters of 2022 was 37.02% and 40.76%, respectively, up 1.73pps and 0.95pps year-on-year.
Earnings forecast and investment recommendation
As the company continues to cut costs, and as it is replicating the successful cost reduction experience of its retail business to its engineering business, the company is still expected to benefit from the cost savings in the first half of 2023.
All things considered, we revise our earnings forecast for the company and estimate its revenue at CNY6.321 billion and CNY7.286 billion for 2023 and 2024 respectively, a year-on-year increase of 17.3% and 15.3%.
We also estimate its net profit attributable to shareholders at CNY632 million and CNY732 million, a year-on-year growth of 17.9% and 15.8% respectively, implying a PE ratio of 16.0x and 13.8x, respectively, based on the closing price on March 10, 2023.
We maintain the rating of “Outperform”.
Poorer-than-expected consumption recovery; slower-than-expected progress of real estate delivery; sharp rise in raw material prices.
