By
A A A

Summary:
Korea Electric Power Corporation's systematic investments in power generation and infrastructure development projects will enable it to provide reliable services and meet increasing customer demand. Its cost-saving initiatives are also commendable. The company's steady focus on expanding its international foothold will subsequently help to boost its revenue stream. Korea Electric Power continues to be well positioned to capitalize on growth opportunities in the market and to benefit from the industry restructuring initiatives of the Republic of Korea. It also maintains a robust financial position, which enables the company to continue making capital investments. However, uncertainty in pending regulatory cases, dependence on currency fluctuation, volatile commodity prices and operational risks are all concerns. Thus, we are maintaining our Neutral recommendation on the stock.
