FY15 Q3 Results Highlight:

  • 18 Nov 2015 – YoY, 9M15 revenue fell marginally by 0.8% to RM730.8m as we believe the volume decline arising from product relaunching has been buffered by the c.15% price increase in end FY14. Operating profit surged 51.0% to RM154.6m which the Group attributed to lower raw material costs (9M15 milk powder prices fell 37.7%-44.9%) and positive foreign currency hedging effects, which expanded operating margin by 7.3ppt to 21.2%. As a result, net profit jumped 52.5% to RM115.8m
  • 18 Nov 2015 – QoQ, 3Q15 revenue was 8.2% lower at RM255.6m due to high base effect as 2Q15 was aided by-product re-launch. Operating profit managed to inch up by 0.3% to RM65.7m thanks to favourable raw material prices. Net profit climbed 2.4% to RM50.0m, which was a record quarterly profit for the Group, further helped by a marginally lower effective tax rate of 24.0% (2Q15: 25.7%) as well.

Going Forward:

  • I am positive with DLADY’s future:
    • Its solid fundamentals and strong branding position
    • Aggressive marketing and promotional activities
    • Robust demand of diary product in the long-term as Malaysia’s population is projected to reach 38 million people by 2040 from 30 million currently.
    • 25 Aug 2015 – To date, Dutch Lady had launched a new range of liquid milk products under the name of Dutch Lady PureFarm in an effort to refresh the brand.in addition, Dutch Lady have also strengthened our ready-to-drink products.
  • Concern:
    • 25 Aug 2015 – Milk powder prices succumbed to multiple year-low in early-August due to the concerns of slowing demand from China and oversupply situation. However, the volatility persists as latest figures in mid-August show strong rebound of 7.2%-16.7% in a short period which we believe was driven by the 33% output cut by Fonterra, the world’s biggest milk supplier.
  • DLADY valuation is less attractive, but it is a very defensive stock. I am willing to pay some premium for this.
  • I will continue to hold and accumulate this stock for my kids.
