First Berlin Equity Research has published a research update on PNE AG (ISIN: DE000A0JBPG2). Analyst Dr. Karsten von Blumenthal reiterated his BUY rating and maintained his EUR 21.00 price target.

PNE has reported Q1 figures and held a conference call. Sales of €31.4m and EBITDA of €8.5m matched prior year figures and were roughly in line with our forecasts. The company confirmed 2024 guidance (EBITDA: €40m – €50m), which we see PNE well on track to reach. With 276 MW under construction (+36% y/y), the project business is humming. The company increased the capacity of its own wind farm portfolio to 370 MW (+15%y/y). Both the Electricity Generation and the Service segments significantly increased their EBITDA contributions. We confirm our EBITDA forecasts, stick to our €21 price target and reiterate our Buy recommendation.
