Investment summary

Schaltbau Holding should benefit from trends towards digitalisation and interconnectivity in its core Rail segment (68% of FY20 revenues), while restoring profitability levels. The ability to leverage direct current (DC) switching expertise should provide opportunities in growth markets, such as new energy, e-mobility, the DC industry and smart grids. Schaltbau’s valuation offers re-rating potential now that the company is on the verge of restoring profitability after an extensive restructuring programme.

Industry outlook

Schaltbau expects to realise growth of around 5% in the modestly growing Railway market until 2026, driven by the modernisation of Rail, and to significantly improve EBIT margins towards 6–8% in 2026, up from an estimated 2–3% in FY20. Higher growth will come from the Components division with exposure to high growth markets such as new energy (wind and solar) and e-mobility. Growth in these segments is estimated at >20% per annum for the next couple of years.
