A Rising Star in the Renewable Energy Galaxy


Continual modernisation. Kinexia is a leading player in the Italian renewable energy sector,
one of the businesses with the highest potential in the country. The company is active in
three main areas: renewable energy, heating and, more recently, environment
management (especially waste management). This last business has become a major
focus for Kinexia since it signed a deal to buy 32.7% of Waste Italia last month. Kinexia will
now own 86.83% of Waste Italia, a company with a solid base of over 3,000 clients, 9 waste
selection centers, 7 waste collection points, 5 landfill areas and an extensive commercial
network present across all of Italy. We estimate that this deal will be value-accretive
starting from 2015.
2014-2018 Business Plan. The company has highlighted key development areas and goals
to be achieved by 2018 in its recently presented 5-year business plan. The company’s goal
is still to foster the development of technological solutions for energy production from
renewable sources and to provide environmental services. The strategy for the years to
come is to increase both revenues and profit margins from stable assets (biogas from
landfills and district heating) as well as to develop integration activities and synergies in the
waste management sector through cross-selling and commercial network integration. In
addition, Kinexia is seeking to increase retail market penetration with new partnerships and
to expand abroad into the Far East, Northern Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.
Several projects are already in the pipeline, such as an integrated project under
development in Far East, an efficiency pilot project in the Middle East and a waste disposal
project in North Africa.
OUTPERFORM, target price Eu2.70. We have a positive view on the merger operation as the
group will diversify operative risk in a difficult time for the renewable energy sector. Business
plan goals look feasible in the long run, but in the short/medium term visibility is still low. Our
valuation is based on an SOP method for the different business units: Waste, District
Heating, Renewable Power Generation, EPC & O&M, Energy Efficiency and Services. For
each business line, we have used different valuation methods, including peer group
multiples for industrial operations and DCFs for utility operations. The resulting fair value is
Eu3.2, to which we have applied a justified reasonable 20% discount for low visibility and
liquidity versus its sector peers, leading to a target price of Eu2.70.

Business Plan to 2018
Sostenya and Kinexia have approved a joint business plan for 2014-2018 that includes strategic
guidelines. The plan has three focal points: i) renewable energy business; ii) environment
management business; and iii) internationalisation.
In more detail:
i)
Renewable energy business: the business plan goal is to develop, realise and manage
diverse renewable energy production plants (solar, wind, cogeneration, waste, biomass and
biogas) in a sustainable and competitive way. The company wants to focus on innovative
technologies, products and services in the field of smart grids and smart cities, as well as
energy storage.
ii) Environment management business: the aim is that of an integrated management of special
wastes to achieve full control of the waste chain, so as to be able to offer customised
services for collection, transportation, selection, treatment and final disposal.
Africa, Far East, China, India and Latin America – with the objective of developing new
businesses (including joint ventures) in the environment and renewable energy fields.
The company is aiming to achieve a 9.8% revenue CAGR from 2013 to 2018, thanks to:

Smart energy with Innovatec, contributing up to 23%

New approach in waste management (Westend)

New acquisitions in waste treatment and landfills (Lafumet and Fornovo)

Environmental services provided by subsidiary Faeco
The business plan has been developed around the idea of building and maintaining a balanced
mix of initiatives, some that should generate cash quickly (such as treatment plants) and other
steadier and slower investments (such as landfills).
2013 Results, Before & After Merger* of Waste Italia (as illustrated in the business plan)
Source: Company Business Plan
As shown above, 2013 financials will increase on a pro-forma basis with the incorporation of
Waste Italia Holding. However, Waste Italia Holding is burdened with Eu75mn in debt, of which
Eu14mn is expected to be paid off by the end of 2014. The remainder is expected to be settled
by 2016, at an average interest rate of 5.17% over the 2-year amortisation period.
[email protected]
iii) Internationalisation: the company is focusing on some key high-potential areas – North
The combined 2013 revenue of Eu165mn is more than double Kinexia’s 2012 revenue of Eu62mn.
Combined pro-forma EBITDA was Eu55.8mn, or 34% of sales; combined EBIT was Eu16.2mn in
2013 (16% of sales), vs. Kinexia’s Eu3.3mn in 2012.
The Waste Italia Holding acquisition is expected to boost Kinexia’s revenues even further thanks
to new landfill authorisations: one has been granted and the landfill will become active later this
year, while another two are expected to be obtained in 2015.

Revenues 2013 breakdown before & after merger (as per the business plan)
Source: Company Business Plan
The environment management business is the line that will influence overall revenue growth the
most, going from Eu20mn pre-merger to Eu107mn post-merger, or from 26% to 65% of the total.
The next largest business post-merger will be District Heating (from Eu24mn pre-merger to
Eu25mn).

Kinexia’s revenues are expected to grow by 60% over the next five years. In 2018, the company
expects to have an EBITDA margin of 29.9% and an EBIT margin of 16.2%. Net gearing (net debt
divided by total assets) is expected to be 16.8% in 2018.
[email protected]
2018 Business Plan Targets
Key Financials: After Waste Italia Merger
2013 financial statement shows an actual value of production of Eu164mn. Post-merger EBITDA
2013 is Eu54.5mn (vs. Eu55.8mn declared in the plan). In our estimates, we forecast progressive
revenue growth to reach Eu211mn in 2016, where Waste Italia is expected to contribute 47%.
Energy Efficiency business will increase with CAGR of 47%, thanks especially to Innovatec. We
estimate that EBITDA will increase 5% per year from 2013 to 2016, reaching Eu68mn. EBIT is
estimated to rise by 24% to Eu32.7mn in 2016, with Waste Italia contributing 33% of the total in
2016. 2013 Net Profit is Eu3.6mn (vs. the company’s estimate of Eu3.8mn), and we estimate that
the bottom line will be Eu14.5mn in 2016.

APPENDIX
Sector Trends: Energy Sustainability in Italy
Italy’s National Energy Strategy (SEN)
The Italian Government’s guidelines to pursue energy sustainability are contained in a March 2013
report published by the Ministry for Economic Development.

Significantly reduce the energy cost gap for consumers and businesses, by bringing prices and
costs in line with European levels by 2020 and ensuring that the longer-term energy transition
(2030-2050) will not compromise Italian and European industrial competitiveness.

Achieve and exceed the environmental and decarbonisation targets established by the
European Union’s 2020 Climate and Energy Package (known as the “20-20-20” package) and
take on a lead role in defining and implementing the Roadmap 2050.

Improve security of supply, especially in the gas sector, and reduce dependency on imports.

Foster sustainable economic growth by developing the energy sector, especially “green”
energy, to tap into a huge potential (the IEA estimates $38 trillion in global investment by 2035).

In the medium term (up to 2020), the Government has 7 main goals, namely:
18

Energy efficiency: by reducing emissions and improving security of supplies by reducing
dependency on foreign countries

Gas market competitiveness: create an internal market that is fully integrated with other EU
countries; there is an opportunity for Italy to act as a crossroads for gas entering Europe from
Africa

Sustainable development of renewable energy: Italy aims to beat Europe’s 20-20-20 goal and
reduce emissions; the Government believes investing in the renewable energy sector will help
spur economic growth in general

Improve electricity infrastructure: improve the market to make it free, efficient, totally integrated
with the rest of Europe in terms of both infrastructures and regulations and at prices that should
be in line with other European countries

Restructuring the refining industry and the fuel distribution sector: profound restructuring is
needed in these industry areas, and this could lead to more competitive and technologically
advanced assets

Sustainable domestic production of hydrocarbons: leverage more on the country’s oil and gas
reserves, while paying the utmost attention to potential environmental impact of production

Modernise governance: Italy needs to make its decisional processes more efficient, as
procedures are often lengthy and complicated; a shared national energy strategy that is clear
to everyone is the first important step in this direction
[email protected]
The Government’s main long-term objectives (to be achieved by 2050) are:
19
The role and the potential of energy efficiency in Italy
The Government’s top priority for 2020 is energy efficiency, which is indeed the most important from
a cost/benefit perspective. According to the SEN report, the country can save Eu9bn/year in
Source: SEN
The Government estimates that energy efficiency will act as leverage for investments to the tune of
Eu50-60bn by 2020, about 40% of which will be supported by incentives. In the renewable energy
field, cumulated investments are estimated at Eu60-70bn, of which 60% linked to incentives.
Cumulated investments to 2020 (in billion euros)
Source: SEN
The main goal of these energy efficiency initiatives is to reduce energy consumption by 24%.
Consequently, this implies an Eu8bn annual reduction in costs for Italian imports (or Eu62bn over the
entire timeframe).

electricity and gas bills.
The transport business accounts for the largest share of Italy’s energy consumption (32%), followed by
the residential and service sectors (23% and 12-13%), while public bodies consume about 2-3% of the
total.
Energy Consumption in Italy, 2010
(figures are percentages of the total)
Source: SEN
Overall, “civic” usage represents 40% of total consumption. It is evident that the majority of
investments made from now to 2020 will be concentrated in the civic sectors (around Eu50-60bn).
The company has outlined a five-year growth strategy involving all business segments as part of
its business plan.
