First Berlin Equity Research has published a research update on Knaus Tabbert AG (ISIN: DE000A2YN504). Analyst Ellis Acklin reiterated his BUY rating and decreased the price target from EUR 95.00 to EUR 87.00.

Full year reporting confirmed preliminary results. Net income totalled €26m, and management will propose a €1.5 per share dividend to the AGM, equal to ~60% of the bottom line. The company exited the year with a record €1.3bn order backlog and is optimising its chassis purchasing strategy. This is expected to have favourable effects on the 2022 topline and margins, assuming macro issues do not run rampant through the economy. We remain Buy-rated on Knaus Tabbert, but our price target moves to €87 (old: €95) after adjusting our WACC estimate to account for increased macroeconomic risks and rising bond yields.
