COMMENTS ON THE AUDITED RESULTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 SEPTEMBER 2019
Our expectation for the years performance was severely affected by the significant dip in the tea and coffee prices experienced during the year.
This was further compounded by severe weather conditions, high cost of production manifested in labour and input costs and lower production volumes especially in tea.
The prices were lower than the cost of production throughout the financial year, leading to the absorption of cash reserves to support the continuation of the business.
Despite these challenges, the diversification strategy is on course and the new lines of business are active and are expected to improve performance in the next year.
Tea production during the year declined by 14% to 9,318 tonnes of made tea down from 10,804 tonnes achieved in the previous year.
The coffee estates produce went through a challenging period following prolonged extreme cold weather in prior year coupled with a dry period in the second quarter, which affected quality and size of the coffee beans and price.
Coffee production however, was higher at 986 tonnes exceeding 891 tonnes produced in the previous year. Generally, global coffee and tea prices dipped to their lowest in over 10 years.
The avocado business maintained a steady and profitable performance during the second year of full operation despite effects of a poor crop and harvest due to the failed rains in the year.
During the year, we launched the macadamia commercial processing and trading activities having completed the capital investments of the factory in late 2018.
The business however only started trading in the last quarter of the financial year and there are indications that going forward, this business unit is poised to be a central part and key contributor to our operations and profits.
The Group recorded a decline in turnover of 20% to Kes.2.8 billion compared to Kes 3.5 billion last year, the cost of sales declined by 11% to Kes 2.4 billion against prior year of Kes 2.7 billion and consequently a reduction in gross profit to Kes434.7 million compared to KShs. 852.1 million for the previous year.
The Group posted an overall loss after tax and non-controlling interest (including the changes in value of biological assets) of Kes 337.7 million (prior year Kes 293.5 million profit).
This comprises of a loss from operating activities of Kes 314.2 million compared to a profit of Kes 256.6 million in the previous year for the group.
The net loss from changes in the value of biological assets was Kshs 3.2 million (prior year gai n o f Kshs 38.9 million).
An interim dividend of 50% (Kes 0.50 per share: 2018 50%: Kes 0.50 per share) was declared and paid on 16 July 2019.
The directors do not recommend the payment of a final dividend (2018 50%: Kes 0.50 per share).
