We continue to see long-term value in CIMIC, supported by structural tailwinds within the infrastructure sector. The company recently announced they’re writing off 1.8bn and exiting their Middle East business to focus on Aust, NZ, and Asia.
Yesterday’s profit release was in line with guidance at $800m of underlying NPAT. FY20 is forecast to see between 1 – 6% growth and a new guidance range of $810-850m has been provided.
Dividends are expected to resume in FY20 and investors should be positive on the strong Q4 cash flow. CIM is trading on 11x forward earnings and a forward dividend yield of almost 6%.
