 YTL 4677 YTL CORPORATION BERHAD,  YTLPOWR 6742 YTL POWER INTERNATIONAL BHD excite investors with good 3Q results. Can the Group sustain its growth momentum?

The strong 3Q financial results of both the companies helped boost investors’ sentiments.

They believe both YTLs are great recovery gems and hugely undervalued.

As it is, YTL group earnings will be catalysed by the following:

YTL Corp:

1.  Wessex Water a water supply and sewerage utility company serving an area of South West England, to report stronger profits from Q4 FY2023 onwards due to water tariff hikes (beginning April 1, 2023) and expanding Regulated Asset Base (RAB).

2. Green data centres to start contributing earnings from Q1 2024.

It is developing YTL Green Data Centre with Sea Ltd, supported by the development of 500MW large-scale solar farm in Kulai. Potential more green data centre jobs to be secured for its Kulai site.

3.  Potential revival of KL-Singapore high speed rail project.

4.  Appreciating asset value over the long term for its Niseko and Sentul land bank.

5. Higher cement division contribution after costs drop off.

6. Higher hotels and shopping malls earnings contribution from higher tourism activities.

 YTL Power:

1. PowerSeraya, which generates about 30% of Singapore’s energy needs, is expected to report continuous good profits over next 3 years due to current heat wave, tight electricity supply and strong Singapore dollars.

2. Maiden contribution from Jordan Power from Q4 FY2023.

3.  Potential power export to Singapore in next few years

4.  Digital bank venture to start contributing earnings from Q2 2024
