Generation Dev Group (ASX:GDG) - Navigating a tougher half
GDG's 1H23 group underlying NPAT of A$2.93m was +3% on the pcp, but 12% below MorgansE (A$3.34m). Overall, 1H23 saw a tougher environment for GDG, with its Investment Bond (IB) business impacted by lower average FUM growth, due to volatile markets, a tougher sales/outflow environment, and higher expenses.
Pleasingly though, the company still delivered 10% IB AUM growth highlighting the compounding nature of this business, while Lonsec's performance continues to impress. We downgrade GDG FY23F/FY24F EPS by 3%-6% mainly on higher expected costs linked to the Lifetime annuity build-out.
Our target price is reduced marginally to (login to view). ADD maintained.
