Goldman Sachs analyst Pang Vittayaamunaykoon initiates coverage on Grab Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: GRAB) with a Buy rating and a price target of $7.90.

The analyst comments "We see Grab as the beneficiary of the growing Southeast Asia internet economy, where increased urbanization, rising mobile/internet penetration, digitization of services and consumption, and a large under-banked population form a US$160bn TAM. We forecast an adjusted revenue CAGR of 32% over 2021-25E. By segment, we expect mobility and financial services to grow faster, at an adjusted revenue CAGR of 45%/40% respectively, benefiting from the economy reopening in 2022. We initiate coverage at Buy with a 12m SOTP-based TP of US$7.9 which implies 36% upside. Our bull-bear scenarios suggest 114% upside and 42% downside. Grab is Southeast Asia's leading super-app that provides hyper-local services across deliveries, mobility and digital financial services. Grab's 25mn customers, 5mn driver-partners and 2mn merchant-partners together form a flywheel which can achieve higher engagement and greater synergy. We are positive on Grab's outlook given 1) An attractive play into the high-growth areas of mobility, delivery, and payments. 2) Proven track record with its super-app across a diverse regional footprint; 3) Mobility is profitable, generating EBITDA margin of c.60% (2021E) despite the economic slowdown during the pandemic, which enables Grab to invest through the cycle; 4) Experienced founder-led management team supported by key strategic shareholders."
