Company Report

Samsung SDI Earnings: Margin Remained Weak Amid Reduced EV Outlook and Lithium Price Decline

Samsung SDI’s March-quarter revenue and operating profit missed our expectations. While sales of medium and large batteries for electric vehicles, or EVs, recorded a single-digit year-on-year growth, on our estimate, demand for cylindrical batteries and energy storage system, or ESS, batteries stayed sluggish during the quarter. Operating margin declined across all major battery segments, as the drop in the lithium price negatively affected product pricing and profitability. We lower our 2024-28 revenue estimates by 7%-10% mainly due to a reduced outlook for EV battery and energy storage battery demand. To factor in margin weakness, we reduce our 2024-28 operating income forecasts by 8%-11%.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Owing to robust demand, the auto battery business will reach a double-digit operating margin in the midterm and continue to drive Samsung SDI's margin expansion.

Bears

The profitability of auto batteries will not improve as expected because of the heavy upfront costs and lower production yields.
