Company Commentary

Tea production was low not only for the Group but across the Tea Industry due to severe drought conditions experienced in the first few months of the year. reduced supplies were met with good demand which boosted prices during the period under review.
Group reported a profit during the 6 months mainly from investment and other non operational activities.
Cost of production remains the biggest concern for the Group and the tea industry at large.
a much publicised strike orchestrated illegally by Union Leaders in the month of October and early November resulting in major losses which will affect performance for the next 6 months.
The Future therefore remains very unpredictable.


Market Cap is 594.62m versus Total Assets of 2.168b.

Company Commentary

Following the issue of the profit warning on 19th March 2014, the company recorded a profit of Shs 77 million from its operating activities, which is 37% lower than realised last year. The results whilst weak, remain a testament of our considerable effort to strive to cope with very weak markets and very significant price decline.
The weather was however favourable throughout the year and this, together with the support from our partners, the smallholders, contributed to the good crop levels achieved.
Fair value gain on biological assets is not equivalent to cash realised from operations and therefore not distributable to the shareholders.


notwithstanding a poor Innings in 20132014 this remains a very cheap share on a Net Asset Value Basis and on a PE Basis.

H1 2013 Earnings through 30.09.2013 versus H1 2012
H1 Turnover 523.390m versus 589.422m
Loss.Profit from Operations before Biological Asset Revaluation [15.331m]

H1 PBT 109.942m versus 151.624m
H1 PAT 76.959m versus 106.137m
H1 EPS 19.67 versus 27.13

As stated above we do not anticipate a change in market conditions prior to our year end in March 2014. The very weak market is therefore likely to negatively impact ou our next six months.

FY Earnings through March 2013 versus FY through March 2012
FY Turnover 1.353206b versus 1.406794b
FY PBT 255.753m versus 112.576m
FY PAT 179.718m versus 77.968m
FY EPS 45.94 versus 19.93
FY Dividend 7.50 a share

The year under review saw reasonable weather conditions. There was rainfall throughout the year which ensured the crop levels remained high particularly in the last quarter of the year. This contributed significantly to the results thus increasing the profit from operating activities.
Fair value gain on biological assets is not equivalent to cash realised from operations and therefore not distributable to the shareholders.
In view of the favourable results, the Directors recommend a final dividend of KShs 7.50 per share (2012 KShs 7.50) to be approved at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting. The final dividend if approved will accrue to those members on the register at close of business on 25th June 2013
The register will remain closed from 26th June to 2nd July 2013 both days inclusive with the dividend being paid thereafter net of withholding tax as applicable.
The weather conditions continue to be unpredictable where rainfall is unevenly distributed. In addition to the uncertain market demand,
foreign exchange fluctuations and the ever increasing costs of production, the impact of the new County Governments and the new Agricultural and Fisheries board may
adversely affect the performance and profitability of the company in the forthcoming financial period.


On a PE of less than 3 This is a very cheap share.

H1 2012 Earnings through Sep 2012 versus H1 Earnings through Sep 2011

Earnings Per Share 19.93 versus 47.80 -58.305%
Final Dividend of 7.50 per Share


Sharp Slide in the Biological Assets Revaluation which They warned about. Profits from Operations increased 22.62% and should be kept in mind.

6 Months to Sep 2011 versus 6 months to Sep 2010
EPS 47.90 versus 23.58 +103.138%


They Have made more money in the H1 2011 than they made in the entire Previous FY.

Turnover 1.246636b versus 1.130108b
Profit before Biological Gains 80.788m versus 190.064m
Biological Gains 176.434m versus 17.42m
Profit After Tax 187.005m versus 139.252m
EPS 47.80 versus 35.60
Final Dividend of 7.50 [Interim Dividend was 1.25]
Dividend Yield 8.495%


Its a cheap share on a PE of 2.154 and a Dividend Yield of 8.495%. I see Tea Prices remain well above their Historic Moving Average and the Currency also will remain on the Blackfoot.

New rules for State to own mining firms @BD_Africa

Parliament has passed new operating rules the require all mining companies licensed in the past one year to cede a portion of their business to the government for free.
The rules, which do not apply to companies that were awarded mining licences earlier, give the government the right to a 10 per cent stake in all mining operations licensed after May 2016.
The State right to a free equity participation shall not apply to any right that has been granted to a holder to mine or exploit a mineral before the coming into force of the Mining Act, the Mining (State Participation) Regulations 2017 say.
The provision is different from the one that prescribes the formula for sharing mineral wealth between mining firms, national government, county governments and local communities.
The Mining Act, which came into force on May 27, 2016, entitles the government, through the yet to be formed National Mining Corporation, to acquire a 10 per cent free equity participation or free carried interest in the mining operations to which the licence relates.
