Spark New Zealand Earnings: Mobile Delivery Underpins Dividend Security

Brian Han Director

Analyst Note

| Brian Han |

We lift our fair value estimate on Spark New Zealand by 4% to NZD 4.90 per share, or AUD 4.50 at current exchange rates, mainly reflecting upgrades to our mobile earnings expectations. The key driver of the in-line 3% growth in fiscal 2023 group EBITDAI to NZD 1,188 million (excluding a NZD 5 million one-off gain) was wireless. Mobile service revenue was up 9%, with management guiding to a further 5% lift in fiscal 2024. The strength was such that mobile more than offset earnings declines in all other units (except procurement), and positive trends in wireless operating metrics are set to continue.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
