with the procurement of the F14/F29 project which consists of the construction of 3 production related structures by Sarawak Shell which worth RM278m. While leading indicator i.e bidding book remain fairly healthy at RM4bn coupled with our positive second half contract flow outlook, our earnings forecast for FY12 and FY13 would still need more contracts boost to materialize as current orderbook size of about RM3.5bn, remain relatively low. Maintain our numbers and Sell call at target price of RM4.37. The contract. The fixed lump sum contract of RM278m entails the provision of procurement, fabrication and yard pre-commissioning of the F14DR-A topside and F14/F29 process module as well as the fabrication of a F14DR-A jacket 4-legged jacket. Estimated completion period is 12 months. The structures are destined for gas fields located offshore Sarawak at water-depth of 320ft. End of dry season. This contract came only after about 7 months since the last contract win back in Nov 2011 thus ending the contract dry season. However, relatively, we still see current orderbook which is estimated at around RM3.5bn (less than 1x of our FY12 revenue estimate) would still need to materially boosted over the next 2 quarters to meet our FY12 and FY13 forecasts. Moving into the rest of the year which we envisaged to be more vibrant as compared to the first half, we expect more fabrication related jobs to be dished out for which may include North Malay Basin cluster marginal fields, Belud, Bumi B and Cakerawala platforms/structures. No change in forecast. We expect the contract to begin contribution in FY12. However, we made no change to our estimates as we had incorporated the contract value into our estimates. Valuation & Recommendation. We retain our Sell call on MMHE with an unchanged target price of RM4.37 based on 20x PER over FY12 EPS of 21.9sen.
