First Berlin Equity Research has published a research update on clearvise AG (ISIN: DE000A1EWXA4). Analyst Dr. Karsten von Blumenthal reiterated his BUY rating and maintained his EUR 3.70 price target.
clearvise has presented final H1 figures that match the preliminary numbers. Both revenues (+66% y/y to €26.5m) and adjusted EBITDA (+80% to €20.6m) increased strongly. This was due to a significant increase in electricity production (+33% to 248 GWh) and substantially higher electricity prices. Net income improved from €-1.6m to €4.0m. In view of persistently high electricity prices, we expect clearvise to raise guidance, which it has already raised twice, again in the course of the year. However, the extremely high level of electricity prices for non-natural gas power generation is unlikely to last much longer due to regulatory intervention in the market design by the EU. So far, a maximum price of between 180 and 200 €/MWh is being considered. As our estimates are not based on the current electricity price level, this regulation would have no impact on our forecasts and valuation. An updated DCF model still yields a €3.70 price target. We confirm our Buy recommendation.
