• Telecommunications segment continues to improve EBT margin to 21.9% in 1H21 from 19.3% in 1H20 thanks to better results of Pay-TV and postponement of capex investment in infrastructure due to Covid-19. There has been a recent good news for FPT telecom, which is that FPT TV will exclusively broadcasts the UEFA club tournament. Thereby, it can rapidly increase FPT telecom’s subscriber base.

Risks and catalysts
Potential re-rating catalysts include the expansionary government fiscal policy and a successful M&A deal with an overseas technology company. Downside risks are fewer technology contracts if the pandemic prolong.
