Maintain Overweight

PHDC is on track to beat our FY21 sales forecast of EGP13.6 billion given the company’s 1H21 sales of EGP7.7 billion and its July 2021 launch of Hacienda West. We remind you that PHDC is targeting EGP15.0 billion in sales in FY21. We maintain our Overweight recommendation of PHDC based on our FV of EGP2.58/share.
