Cadbury Nigeria Q1 2017 Results Review - PBT and PAT Both Down by 86.2% YoY


 Tuesday, April 25, 2017/ 5:22 PM / FBNQuest Research                          

Event: Cadbury Nigeria (Cadbury) reports Q1 2017 results                                            

Implications: Downward revision to consensus estimates likely

Positives: Sales up 13.3% y/y 

Negatives: PBT and PAT both down -86.2% y/y 

Cadbury Nigeria (Cadbury) reported Q1 2017 results this afternoon showing sales growth of 13.3% y/y to N8.1bn. We believe the sales growth was supported by increased prices and slower imported competition. However, PBT declined by -86.2% y/y to a meagre N96m.   

Although operating expenses were -5.6% lower y/y, the PBT was largely impacted by a -1,161bps contraction in gross margin to 21.8%, reflecting increased raw material costs. PAT of N93m decreased by -86.2% y/y, identical to the PBT decline.   

Sequentially, sales fell by -6.7% q/q while both PBT and PAT fell by -65.7% q/q and -88.7% q/q respectively. Although the company will be seeking new initiatives to boost its bottomline, we reiterate that Cadbury is limited by the size of its product offering.   

The sales and PBT were 5% and 66% ahead our forecasts. Compared with consensus, annualised sales are in line while PBT is tracking behind significantly. Cadbury shares have shed -9.6% ytd vs -3.9% for NSE ASI. We expect the market’s reaction to be negative.   

We rate the stock Neutral. Our estimates are under review.
