TM’s 1QFY12 core net earnings of RM181.3m is within our expectation. YoY revenue and core net earnings increased by 11% and 46% respectively due mainly to higher revenue from all key products i.e. internet and multimedia, data, voice and other telecommunications related services with the take up rate of Unifi exceeded expectations. We maintain our FY12 and FY13 earnings forecast and target price unchanged at RM5.10. Maintain our NEUTRAL stance on TM. Higher earnings. YoY net profit rose 53.5% to RM250.6m due to higher revenue and higher unrealised forex gain from USD-denominated debt. Meanwhile core net earnings improved by 46% attributable to positive contributions from internet and multimedia, data, voice and other telecommunications related services. Positive growth in all division. Revenue from internet and multimedia services improved by 24.3% QoQ to RM563.4m, mainly arising from increased UniFi customers.

We maintain our FY12 and FY13 earnings forecasts at RM885.5m and RM945.7m respectively. View & Valuation.
