First Berlin Equity Research has published a research update on Knaus Tabbert AG (ISIN: DE000A2YN504). Analyst Ellis Acklin reiterated his BUY rating and maintained his EUR 86.00 price target.

A production surge spurred 2023 revenue growth (+37%) and EBITDA expansion (+76%). Both KPIs were close to FBe and the street. The order backlog remained at a reassuring 66% of reported 2023 sales and the company wants to focus on boosting cash flows by ?cleaning up? the balance sheet after the production surge. The RV maker continues to gain market share and will launch a new brand later this year, which should help defend top market share rankings. KTA brass also wants to reward shareholders with a much higher dividend €2.9 (2022: €1.5) reflecting the strong bottom line. While 2024 revenue growth will not match the splashy 2023 KPI, we see plenty of reasons to be optimistic over the short- and midterm. We are Buy-rated on KTA with an €86 TP.
