Well-controlled Costs, Neutral Impact of Crude Oil and Exchange Rate and Change in Accounting Standards Caused Financial Expenses to Surge

Thanks to the Company's sound cost control and continuously enhanced operating efficiency, the available unit cost per seat per kilometre and available unit cost per ton per kilometre remained stable, and the daily utilization rate of aircraft recorded 9.71 hours, an increase of 0.15 hours yoy. In H1, the operating costs increased by 0.97% yoy, of which the aviation fuel cost increased by RMB33 million or 0.19% yoy. The net foreign exchange loss recorded RMB119 million, a decrease of RMB399 million yoy, as the depreciation of RMB was less than that of the same period of last year. The financial expenses recorded RMB2,587 million, an increase of RMB687 million yoy, of which, the interest expense (excluding those capitalized) recorded RMB2.44 billion, an increase of RMB1.07 billion yoy, mainly due to the impact of the implementation of new lease standards.

Meanwhile, due to the new lease standards, the total assets and total liabilities increased by 16% and 28%, respectively, the asset-liability ratio increased by 6.2 ppts, and the proportion of USD liabilities increased to 48% at the beginning of 2019 from 31% at the end of 2018. The exchange rate sensitivity increased. However, the Company was still working on reducing its USD liability proportion, which was reduced to 44.2% by the middle of the year.

Valuation & Investment thesis

In H2, the factor of airport overhaul will affect less, and we expect the Company's scheduled aviation capacity will recover gradually. And the positive factors of freight rate rise and CAAC's total quantity control will hedge the negative impact of the demand fluctuation. We expect a positive trend of the cost end, and that the halving of the civil aviation fund in H2 will help AC to better its results, and the oil price will remain low. However, the recent acceleration in the depreciation of the RMB exchange rate will be a drag on the Company's earnings.

According to the latest hypothesis of the oil cost and exchange rate, we revised our estimate 2019/2020 net profit of AC to be 7.94/10.985 billion RMB. The target price is adjusted to HKD8.9, estimates 14.7/10.6x P/E and 1.17/1.07x P/B in 2019/2020. ¡§Accumulate¡¨ rating is given. (Closing price as at 12 September 2019)


Traffic demand languished for the deterioration of macro-economy;

The depreciation of the RMB against USD would bring exchange loss;

Oil prices rose exceeded forecast.

War, terrorist attacks, SARS and other emergencies;
