FY16 Q1 Results Highlight:

  • For the third quarter, the Group’s revenue decreased by 0.9% to RM405.7 million compared to the same quarter last year.
  • Profit after tax increased by 8.4% to RM 63.7 million to RM58.8 million YoY.
  • The Malaysian operations recorded a decline in revenue of 10.0% to RM263.2 million due to revenue impact from the LHFB divestment as well as the later timing of trade stock-up ahead of the government’s National Budget 2016.
  • In Singapore, the business continued to gain traction. Revenue grew by 21.8% to RM142.5 million whilst operating profit improved by 80.4% to RM36.0 million. The improved result was driven by higher sales volume, effective cost control, increased contribution from the Maybev acquisition as well as the strengthening of the Singapore Dollar against the Ringgit.
  • For the period ended 30 September 2015, the Group recorded revenue of RM1,237.4 million, 2.2% higher than last year.
  • The Malaysian operations recorded a decline in revenue of 6.8% to RM853.5 million.
  • For Singapore operations, revenue grew by 29.8% to RM383.9 million whilst operating profit improved by 55.3% to RM69.7 million.

Going Forward:

  • I remain conservative and skeptical above volume growth in the brewery sector as some reports show that the industry is saturated. However, earnings should be sustainable at current levels.
  • Valuation wise, CARLSBG is fully or over valued, but its Dividend Yield is 6.4%. You basically pay premium to buy an outstanding dividend counter.

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