We’re using 2019 as a baseline since 2020 was a pandemic year, which prevented people from stockpiling supplies. Monde Nissin value is approximately Ph10.67 Pesos and, we are aiming to lock in t a cost of Ph P9.70 to PhP9.25 to Ph P9.75 (10-15% upside).

A Look at the Industry
From 2016 to 2020, the Philippines’ household spending on food and beverages per capita increased at a compounded annual growth rate (“CAGR”) of 4.2 percent. According to Euromonitor, the market would expand at a faster pace from 2020 to 2025, with a CAGR of 7.1 percent. Meanwhile, global meat replacement revenues are expected to reach $8 billion by 2020, with the United Kingdom and the United States responsible for 8.8 percent and 21.3 percent, respectively. According to Barclays, the global meat replacement industry would be worth up to $140 billion by 2029.
The Company expects to collect PhP60.5B in net proceeds with a bid price of PhP17.50. The majority of the proceeds would be used to fund the company’s capital spending (“capex”) plans. The Company’s key projects right now are the completion of its Malvar, Batangas plant, the launch of a new healthy noodles range, and the expansion of capability and development of new items for its meat substitute market. The remaining funds will be used to redeem the convertible note to repay the loans.

At the maximum bid price of PhP17.50 and considering a completely subscribed IPO with overallotment, the Company would trade at 42.8x 2020 PE, a substantial premium primarily based on relative valuation. According to GICS data, the regional PE average for the food products industry is 26.6x. To match the geographic coverage, the MNC’s price should be P10.88, or it should increase its 2020 EPS by 61 percent, resulting in a PE of 26.6x at PhP17.50. As a result, based on our relative assessment, we suggest subscribing to the IPO if it is priced less than PhP10.
