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 22.00 price target.
PNE commissioned two German wind farms with a total capacity of 22 MW at the turn of the year. This expands PNE’s portfolio capacity to 370 MW. A further eleven wind farms with a total output of ca. 281 MW are under construction and will be transferred to the portfolio after commissioning. This will increase portfolio capacity to 651 MW and be an important step towards PNE’s 1.5 GW/GWp green power portfolio target by 2027. In December, PNE sold PV projects in Romania and Italy (in total: 176 MWp). We believe that these project sales and strong wind conditions in Q4 will have enabled PNE to reach 2023 EBITDA guidance of €30m – €40m (FBe: €34.8m). In 2024, an improving German wind market will support PNE’s growth strategy. With a strong project pipeline, an increasing service business and the ongoing expansion of the power generation portfolio, we see PNE on track to reach its medium-term target of >€150m EBITDA by 2027. We confirm our Buy rating and €22 price target.
