GS Samsung 2025
    April 11, 2016 South Korea Samsung Electronics 2025: Life after smartphones Equity Research Hardware-as-a-platform scenario, foldable display likely to be key Global technology major at an inflection point Strong execution in hardware, preemptive investments in components, and unique synergy from vertical integration over the past two decades have led to Samsung Electronics (SEC) becoming one of the largest companies in the global TMT market in terms of sales/profit. However, we believe SEC now faces a structural decrease in hardware profits  (esp. smartphones) as well as limited earnings contribution from its new growth drivers. We forecast SEC’s earnings to decline gradually through 2025E with solid contributions from semi (then 72% of EBIT)/OLED being offset by smartphones — pointing to its transformation to a capex-heavy semi company from   a smartphone maker. What could make us constructive on the stock Despite its 14% underperformance vs KOSPI over the past year, we maintain Neutral on SEC on balanced risk-reward and our 12-m P/B-ROE based TP of W1.3mn (1% potential upside). We could turn constructive on SEC if it: (1) reforms its hardware strategy  and generates earnings from mobile services, (2) substantially improves shareholder return  via either significant increase in dividend payout or continuous share buyback with cancellation, (3) untangles the complex ownership structure  through potential group restructuring which could reduce its valuation discount vs global peers. Potential opportunities: Hardware-as-a-platform, foldable display    Hardware-as-a-platform  scenario: We assume SEC could leverage its hardware market share via aggressive pricing while also generating revenue/EBIT of W18tn/W10tn from mobile services by 2025E.    Commercialization of foldable display : This could drive the next hardware product cycle based on a differentiated form factor and better mobility with multiple devices converging into one. We expect SEC to maintain a leading share in AM OLED — in 2025E, we forecast SEC to generate W51tn/W5.1tn revenue/OP in AM OLED, with 80%/90% from flexible displays. Scenario analysis: Bull/bear case variance vs current price +41%/-45% Our scenario analysis using 2025E earnings implies a theoretical valuation for each case using DCF methodology (to capture cash generation capability): Bull case : Strong execution of hardware-as-a-platform (leading to a balanced structure with 41% 2025E EBIT contribution from semi vs. 48% at present), boosting its implied valuation to W1.8mn (+41% variance vs current price). Bear case : Increasing competition in semi/display panel businesses drags down its implied valuation to W0.7mn (-45% variance vs current price).
