Biden’s $1.9 trillion rescue package offers bridge for hard-hit economy

Thu, January 14, 2021, 6:25 PM

By Ann Saphir

(Reuters) – U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s proposal to pour $1.9 trillion into a hobbled economy could lay the foundation for a surge in jobs and spending that many economists say is needed to avoid long-term damage from a record-breaking pandemic recession.

Analysts had already begun marking up their forecasts for economic growth this year after last week’s elections in Georgia delivered control of both houses of Congress to Democrats.

Antibe Therapeutics Announces Intent to Unify Intellectual Property Ownership

ntibe Therapeutics Inc. (TSX: ATE, OTCQB: ATBPF) (the “Company”), a clinical stage company leveraging its unique hydrogen sulfide platform to develop safer medicines for pain and inflammation, today announced that it has commenced preliminary discussions to amalgamate Antibe Holdings Inc. (“Holdings”) with the Company in order to unify the intellectual property (“IP”) ownership of the Company’s drugs and platform. The Company believes that such an initiative would unlock value for potential partners and investors while simplifying IP protection for pipeline expansion efforts now underway.

“As described in our ongoing disclosures, the Company was founded with an exclusive license from Holdings,” commented Dan Legault, Antibe’s CEO. “Based on this IP, we have achieved human proof-of-concept for otenaproxesul and developed compelling preclinical data for our other pipeline drugs. As we map out strategic initiatives with prospective partners and healthcare-specialized investors, we expect full ownership of the underlying IP to strengthen our corporate position. It also represents another step in our growth strategy, complementing our recent graduation to the TSX, share consolidation and the appointment of U.S.-based directors.”

Ideenion Acquisition EGM set

Ideenion Acquisition Update.  AMFG released the Circular for the Ideenion acquisition and announced it is holding an Extraordinary General Meeting on January 29 at 11am in Science Park to vote on the acquisition.  A few key notes from the Circular include that prior to COVID, Ideenion was generating roughly HK$157.6 million in Revenue and HK$37.9 million in Net Profit per year.  Despite being impacted by COVID, it has a pipeline of projects worth roughly €24,450,000 (HK$233,000,000), as well as being in final negotiations with an emerging market client for a fuel cell vehicle and an EV setup with a total project value of €49,000,000 (HK$467,000,000), which gives the vendors confidence in the profit targets being reached for the contingent cash and share issuances.  The independent valuer found a current valuation of €22,000,000.  AMFG is paying €15,000,000 in cash at closing, plus another €1,400,000 in cash and €5,600,000 in shares annually upon meeting profit targets in each of 2021, 2022 and 2023.  All of the cash in Ideenion will be paid out to the Vendors prior to closing with the exception of €1,500,000.  We again note, the potential share issuance is based on Ideenion reaching profit milestones over a three year period with shares being issued at the higher of HK$0.52 or the three-month daily average.  

H2:20 Results.  AMFG reported second half 2020 results (ending September 30) with Revenue of HK$100.8 million, down significantly due to the impact of COVID.  No Apollo IE hypercars were delivered in the period, although one was delivered prior to the end of the calendar year.  Auto engineering services Revenue was just HK$2.6 million as many projects were put on hold.  All of the legacy businesses were hit hard by COVID, as well as Property Investment due to Shenyang expropriating property that the Company owned, which resulted in Other Gains, Net of HK$255.9 million and HK$281.2 million of Land Appreciation Tax in the period; AMFG turned a profit on the building as it had previously been marked up.  Net Loss for the period was HK$141.8 million, or HK$1.98 cents per share.

Model Update.  The model continues to be subject to significant fluctuations due to COVID, however it will get a bit of stability with the closing of the Ideenion acquisition and the world creeping back to normalcy with global vaccine distribution underway.  One Apollo IE was delivered before the end of calendar Q4, marking the third such delivery; two were delivered prior to the completion of the acquisition.  We expect a total of four to six IE’s to be delivered over the course of fiscal 2021, with the remainder falling in fiscal 2022.  The launch of the next Apollo model has been pushed back, and will now be launched later this year.  The DeTomaso P72 has been delayed as well, with deliveries now expected in 2022, however AMFG should begin receiving its license fee on each car produced starting later this year.  We continue to expect the auto products and services business to grow quickly as the world exits COVID and ramp significantly starting in 2022 as a number of the previously discussed products roll out to market.  As a result of these changes, our estimated Revenue and Net Profit numbers for fiscal 2021 and 2022 have contracted.

Retirement of Non-Executive Director.  On December 30, Co-Chairman Zhang Jinbing notified the Board he would not seek re-election to the Board due to his other business commitments.  Mr. Zhang was previously Chairman prior to the change in direction of AMFG in late 2016.

Maintaining Rating & Target.  Getting the Ideenion deal done is an important step for AMFG as it broadens the Company’s reach and tier one customer base.  We continue to believe AMFG is ideally positioned for the changing auto industry with its engineering capabilities and product offerings.  As such, we are reiterating our Buy rating and HK$1.50 target price on Apollo Future Mobility Group.  Our target price is based on a P/E multiple of 25 times our fiscal 2022 Diluted EPS estimate of HK$5.64 cents.

 Land Acquired In Zhongshan City Near The Zhongshan-Shenzhen Bridge 

Land Acquired In Zhongshan City.  On Monday, GDL announced Guangzhou Panyu, an 80%-owned subsidiary, won a bid for the land use rights of 98,811.2m2 of land in Tsuihang New District, Zhongshan City.  The land is ideally situated near the bridgehead for the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Bridge, which is scheduled for completion in 2024, giving it both water views and convenient access to Shenzhen.  The winning cash bid was RMB 3,705,420,000.  The project is expected to have a total GFA of 247,028m2 and be comprised of residential units that will be held for sale upon completion. 

Model Update.  We added the new Zhongshan City project into our model, which will have a large, positive impact on the Income Statement starting in 2024, based on our assumptions.

Maintaining Rating & Target.  The Zongshan City land acquisition looks to be another strong property in the Company’s portfolio, and one that could see outsized returns as it and the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Bridge near completion.  We continue to believe GDL’s property portfolio is undervalued by the market and are reaffirming our Buy rating and HK$5.00 target price on Guangdong Land Holdings.  Our target price is based on our DCF model that covers GDL’s entire project portfolio, discounted at 6.5%.

Guangdong Land Holdings [HK: 124]

Shareholders Approve Jiangmen Ganhua and Huizhou Dayawan Acquisitions

Jiangmen Ganhua and Huizhou Dayawan Acquisitions Approved.  Yesterday, shareholders approved the acquisition of a 51% equity interest in Jiangmen Yuehai and 100% of the equity of Huizhou Yuehai  from Guangdong Holdings, the ultimate controlling shareholder of GDL, and Yuegang Investment, a subsidiary of GDH.  Jiangmen Yuehai owns the Jiangmen Ganhua Project, a three phase project with 274,371m2 of residential, 28,797m2 of elderly residential apartments and public service facilities, 119,194.52m2 of commercial, 12,800.5m2 for care homes and health centers, and 3,035m2 for ancillary public facilities.  Huizhou Yuehai owns the Huizhou Dayawan Project, which is comprised of 81,469m2 of residential space, 9,209m2 of commercial space, and 1,416m2 for ancillary public facilities, as well as a clubhouse and kindergarten on site that total 1,699m2 and are currently under lease, along with 6,541m2 of car park spaces, of which 76% have been delivered.

Model Update.  We have added the Jiangmen Ganhua and Huizhou Dayawan projects into our model, starting in February 2021, which is the expected completion date.  The two projects add to the Net Profit estimates of the Company starting in 2023, and extends GDL’s cash flow stream well beyond the GDH City project.

Maintaining Rating & Raising Target.  The approval from shareholders to acquire the Jiangmen Ganhua and Huizhou Dayawan projects add two promising developments to GDL’s growing portfolio of Greater Bay Area properties.  The acquisitions are structured in a cash-friendly way for GDL and should provide a strong cash flow stream beyond GDH City.  With the expected cash flows from these new projects, we are reiterating our Buy rating on Guangdong Land Holdings and raising our target price from HK$4.00 to HK$5.00.  Our target price is based on our DCF model that covers GDL’s entire project portfolio, discounted at 6.5%.

Apollo Future Mobility Group Limited [HK: 0864]

HK$491 Million Raised After Strong CIIE Showing

HK$491 Million Financing.  On Monday, the Company announced it sold 1,066,596,000 new shares to strategic investors from Europe and the Middle East at a price of HK$0.46 per share.  The deal was priced at a discount to market thanks to the recent run up in the stock price after CIIE.  This deal has presumably been in the works for some time, in which case the deal price was around market pricing pre-CIIE.  AMFG anticipates receiving HK$491,000,000 in gross proceeds from the financing (HK$486,000,000 net), which it will use for acquisitions, investments, R&D and general uses.  We expect a portion of this cash will be used to complete the Ideenion acquisition. 

Success At CIIE.  AMFG was an exhibitor, along with other leading global automotive brands, at the China International Import Expo that ran from November 5-10 in Shanghai.  The Company showcased a variety of its mobility solutions, including the Apollo IE, its prototype Urban Delivery Vehicle (UDV), GLM’s Electric Mobility Scooter, its ROHM co-developed 800V SiC Dual Inverter, and its self-developed Autonomous Development Chassis.  The Expo marked the debut for the UDV, which was designed for last mile transport and can be shipped to customers in knocked-down form to be assembled in local micro factories.  Production of the UDV is expected in 2022.  GLM’s Scooter is designed to transition mobile seniors from automobiles to a more manageable mode of transport, with the aim of reaching commercialization by the end of 2022.  The Autonomous Development Chassis was designed to be a customizable platform for autonomous driving software, and includes electric power steering, an e-braking system, a high powered EV motor, and four LIDAR sensors for mapping needs.  The new inverter technology was discussed in a previous report.  The Company drew a great deal of attention at the event, both from prospective customers and partners, as well as local media, which should further help AMFG build brand awareness among potential customers, including local auto brands needing technology solutions.

Model Update.  We included the new shares and cash from the acquisition, and pushed the completion of the Ideenion acquisition into early 2021.  We also made additional adjustments due to the impact of COVID across Asia and Europe.

Maintaining Rating & Raising Target.  AMFG continues to make solid progress on multiple fronts as it works to be at the center of not only the shift to electric, but also the shift to outsourced automotive technology and vehicle development.  We believe the fundraising provides the capital to move a number of pieces forward and expect to see additional developments in the near future as business returns to normal globally.  With continued positive news, we are reiterating our Buy rating on Apollo Future Mobility Group and raising our target price from HK$0.75 to HK$1.50.  Our target price is based on a P/E multiple of 25 times our fiscal 2022 Diluted EPS estimate of HK$7.06 cents, discounted one year at 20%.  We believe the increased P/E multiple is justified given the increased multiples and valuations received by other companies in the EV space, despite those being singularly focused on a product area rather than diversified as AMFG is.

ValuEngine Weekly Report

By: Herbert Blank
ValuEngine Weekly Market Update: 02/05/2021

Actively managed ETFs have evolved very differently from index-driven ETFs. Most of the assets have been accumulated in actively managed fixed income ETFs while the vast preponderance of Assets Under Management in Equity ETFs are index driven. Although there are many legacy reasons for this, the fact is that the efficiencies of the ETF structure, tax and operational, benefit fund shareholders of actively managed funds even more than the benefits long realized by those holding index-driven ETFs. ETF’s covered in this post: AIEQ, ARKK, ARKW, CWS, DYNF, FTHI, HUSV
