Extension of vehicle delivery period a boon to OEMs

Quick Summary AI Powered

KUALA LUMPUR: While the deadline for the automotive sales and services tax (SST) exemption will expire on June 30, 2022, the government's decision to allow the waiver to include vehicles delivered up to March 31, 2023, would help original equipment manufacturers (OEM) sustain their margins until the year-end, says Hong Leong Investment Bank (HLIB) Research.

It favours MBMR (Buy, TP:RM5) and DRB-Hicom (Buy, TP:RM2) on expectation of local OEMs to outperform with potential growth from new export markets.

"We expect OEMs to remain cautious in their budgets in 2023, while leveraging onto attractive new model launches to sustain their sales volume," it said.
