Investment summary

XP Power has reported another strong set of results, with H121 revenue up 14% y-o-y and normalised EPS up 33% y-o-y. The semiconductor equipment sector continues to be a strong driver of revenue and orders, and industrial technology has returned to growth. As expected, healthcare declined from the exceptional levels seen last year with demand reverting back to non COVID-19 applications. Overall, exceptional revenue growth and order intake drive upgrades to our forecasts, with EPS up 5.4% in FY21 and 6.9% in FY22.

Industry outlook

XP supplies three end-markets: healthcare, industrial technology and semiconductor manufacturing, across Europe, North America and Asia. The industrial technology segment is relatively fragmented, but the company sees demand across various applications. The healthcare business continues to gain market share, with corporate approvals from the major suppliers in place. The semiconductor segment is the most cyclical, tracking the capex requirements of semiconductor manufacturers.
