{I-bank focus}HSBC cuts L'Occitane (00973) to HK$20

[ET Net News Agency, 18 September 2019] HSBC Global Research lowered its target price
for L'Occitane International (00973) to HK$20 from HK$21 and maintained its "buy" rating.
The research house remains convinced that the integration of the ELEMIS brand should
generate earnings accretion of about 14% to 18% over the next three fiscal years for the
group. But the stock is up only around 6% since the acquisition.
More importantly, HSBC noted that the core business has become a lot stronger, notably
linked to product initiatives. As a consequence, we believe that despite the likely
headwinds in Hong Kong (1Q was down 15% and should be more under pressure now) and the US
(soft retail trends), like for like growth can probably hold a level at around 2% again in
HSBC believes the group should be able to maintain teen constant currency growth of 13%
versus 16% in 1Q. (KL)
