Chorus Ends Three-Year Journey for Fibre Certainty

Brian Han Director

Analyst Note

| Brian Han |

We lift our fair value estimate on Chorus by 8% to NZD 6.80 per share (AUD 6.40 at current exchange rates). The upgrade is mainly driven by a slight cut in our weighted average cost of capital to 6.5%, from 6.6%, reflecting the regulatory certainty that will now govern the group’s fibre unit (59% of group revenue in fiscal 2021, forecast to grow to 73% by fiscal 2024).
