FY16 Q1 Results Highlight:

  • GAB recorded 1QFY16 revenue of RM405m (+3% yoy) and core earnings of RM63.1m (+15.6% yoy) due to higher sales volume from its core beer brands (better product mix) and improved selling prices. Furthermore, the group benefited from the Government’s measures against contraband beers which has aided the duty paid market.
  • Net profit increased by RM63.1m or 15% yoy due to optimized channel execution and improved cost efficiencies.

Going Forward:

  • For FY16, it will be challenging for GAB to pass on large price increases to consumers in view of
    • The softer environment
    • Anti-profiteering act which prohibits price increases if it increases profitability excessively.
  • I will continue to hold and accumulate this stock for my kids.

At the time of writing, I owned shares of GAB.
