AAC Tech’s Optics Execution Remains Key for Re-Rating; Acoustic Upgrade May Be a One-Year Story

Phelix Lee Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Phelix Lee |

We maintain our fair value estimate on AAC Technologies at HKD 42 per share due to more bullish optics revenue forecasts, mostly in wafer level glass, or WLG, and camera module sales, which are offset by more conservative acoustic gross margin assumptions as we believe speaker upgrades will not benefit AAC as much as we hoped. We believe WLG and camera modules will contribute about 45% of 2025 optics revenue, from less than 5% in 2020, as AAC benefits from smartphone upgrades and vehicles packing more cameras. But the main factor that prevents us from recommending the stock is AAC has yet to prove how it competes with strong players looming in the optics segment.
