The Groups performance was adversely impacted by closure of some of its offshore manufacturing facilities result, in prolonged stock shortages which depressed revenues significantly. Pricing volatility also lead to increased cost of sales and reduced gross profit margins.
The Groups profitability was also impacted by the decision to derecognize previous deferred tax assets due to uncertainty on the availability of future taxable profits against which those deferred tax assets can be utilized before expiry of their allowable lifetime.

The Group has instituted measures to address and diversify its offshore manufacturing capabilities to ensure constant product availability. In 2019, the Group will in particular focus on strengthening its Kenya core market and tyre retail business to drive revenue growth.

The Board of Directors do not recommend the payment of a dividend for the year end. 31 December 2018.

Company Commentary

Revenue declined by 11% in line with
[a] ever increasing competition from subsidised tyres from the East
[b] the continued influx of unaccustomed tyres into all our markets and
[c] management efforts to reduce credit extension in markets where we experienced a general tightening in liquidity. Sales into our export markets were also adversely affected by civil unrest in some and acute hard currency shortages in others.

Net Cash generated from operations in 2015 at 307m was significantly up from the 148m generated in 2014

Outlook 2016

Other Strategic initiatives will include the following
Expansion of the Summit brand product offering
Opening of additional retail outlets
Unlocking the value of our land Portfolio


Better than the previous Year. The land Portfolio has a lot of Value.
