Masimba Holdings Limited (18 months) FY 2013 results

  1. 1. Directors: G Sebborn (Chairman), C Malunga*, M W McCulloch, S Sithole, M Tapera*, P T Zhanda (Jnr) (*Executive) • Registered Office: 44 Tilbury Road, Willowvale, Harare, Zimbabwe Introduction Following the recent shareholders’resolution to change the Group’s financial reporting period end to 31 December from 30 June, this statement and the accompanying audited financial results therefore relate to the 18 month period ended 31 December 2013, with the comparative period being for the 12 months ended 30 June 2012. Operating environment During the period under review Zimbabweans held peaceful Parliamentary and Presidential elections. Throughout the period the economy experienced significant liquidity constraints, which had an adverse impact on business operations, and this trend has continued since the conclusion of the elections. The economic environment during the review period has however been increasingly more difficult and has been characterised by a stifling liquidity problem, which has affected most of the key drivers in the economy. As the cash squeeze has progressively tightened, particularly in the last six months of the reporting period, funding for construction activity has diminished and large projects were few and far between. The profile in the construction sector has shifted to smaller scale projects and consequently, a larger number of these smaller projects are being run at any one time in order to operate at a profitable level of activity. This presents additional challenges in respect of resources deployment and management oversight but the Group has effectively responded to these challenges. The ability to secure payments for work carried out in accordance with contractual terms has become a problem in some areas, resulting in further challenges in cash flow planning and management. Group Performance Group revenue for the 18 month period was US$62,314,499 compared to US$43,018,590 for the 12 month period ended 30 June 2012. This is a 45% increase over the comparative period to 30 June 2012. While this is a commendable achievement under the challenging conditions, the Group has experienced noticeable decline in monthly revenues since the elections which has been a result of the liquidity constraints noted above. The Group achieved higher gross profit margins of 17% in the period under review compared to the last reporting period of 15%, driven by a major drive for efficiencies undertaken during the period. An EBITDA of US$3,941,011 was recorded for the full 18 months compared to US$3,566,553 for the previous 12 months. In addition the Group has managed to show a net positive cash flow of US$489,348 for the period under review. As stated above, the operating environment has proved difficult during the review period and is becoming increasingly more so. Consequently, the Directors have taken steps to ensure that overheads and business activities are appropriately structured so as to weather the current operating environment and more importantly, to ensure that the Group is well positioned to respond to an anticipated recovery in economic activity. Some tough decisions have been taken as this recovery is not anticipated to occur in the short term and it is therefore important that the Group maintains a streamlined and efficient operating profile at present. This will not be at the expense of identifying and targeting new growth opportunities and there are some interesting prospects currently being considered. The re-alignment of Group activities during the period has resulted in a once -off charge to earnings of US$1,250,000. There was an additional charge of US$357,000 which represents a fair value adjustment to property values as a consequence of a general slump in the property sector. Furthermore, properties with a value of US$645,000 were disposed of and proceeds applied to the reduction of Group borrowings. These efforts have improved the Group’s cost base going forward and offer an opportunity to weather the likely scarcity of projects in the short term while positioning the Group for the long-term opportunities offered by the many pressing areas where Zimbabwe has poor or inadequate infrastructure. Proplastics continues to enjoy moderate levels of demand despite countrywide cash flow issues. The Board anticipates that demand for HDPE piping systems in particular is likely to remain buoyant in the near term. In this regard the Board has approved an expansion plan aimed at manufacturing large bore HDPE pipes at the Ardbennie premises. The plant will be commissioned towards the end of the first half of this calendar year, and should further strengthen Proplastics’ position in the mining and agriculture sectors. As at 31 December 2013 the Group’s direct exposure to Government and quasi- Government was US$5,728,000. These amounts are mainly in Masimba Construction and are up from US$4,904,000 at 30 June 2013. Efforts to recover these amounts are ongoing and the Board remains confident that the amounts are fully recoverable. Prospects We anticipate that business conditions will remain constrained in the new year with continuing liquidity challenges. Politically, there are indications of moves towards a thawing in relations with some Governments ABRIDGED CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS OF COMPREHENSIVE INCOME 18 months 12 months 31 December 30 June 2013 2012 Audited Audited US$ US$ (Loss)/profit for the period (60,412) 1,300,417 Other comprehensive income/(loss): Exchange differences on translating foreign operations (4,947) 1,430 Available for sale financial assets - (5,701) Reclassification adjustment relating to available for sale - (71) Revaluation reserve 1,731,477 - Income tax relating to components of other comprehensive income (362,533) 58 Other comprehensive income/(loss) for the period, net of tax 1,363,997 (4,284) TOTAL COMPREHENSIVE INCOME FOR THE PERIOD 1,303,585 1,296,133 NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL RESULTS 1.

In addition, there are ongoing discussions with multilateral institutions, which are a positive indication of intent by the Government. Whilst these initiatives will not lead to a short- term uplift in activity, we believe that the trend-line is positive and that investment and aid flows will inevitably follow as Government actively pursues an environment which is geared toward growth and development. The large backlog in infrastructure development points to longer term potential for Masimba Construction. Government statistics suggest that this sector has grown at rates in excess of 10% since 2009, and projects the same rate of growth in coming years. Government has also announced that it will continue with infrastructure development projects by way of joint venture partnerships or similar arrangements, with local players being given preference if they have the capacity. Whilst this is positive news for our construction business, the real key driver will be Government’s ability to harness and mobilise the financial resources required to kick-start these infrastructure projects. There is much work to be done in order to achieve this and we follow political developments with a keen interest in our future. Mindful of the potential liquidity trap typically associated with Government projects the Group will continue to participate in Government construction projects. Where possible the Group will endeavor to participate in the creation of financial solutions for such projects without introducing unnecessary risk to the Group. Opportunities in the mining sector are evident but this sector is in need of significant investment if it is to realise its true potential. Such investment will only occur once Government and the mining community reach a consensus on appropriate investment conditions and a social contract that achieves support from all stakeholders. In the absence of these, contracting opportunities will remain limited. Dividend declaration An interim dividend of US$0.0012 per share was declared (in cash or scrip) and paid on 11 October 2013. In total the cash outflow of the company amounted to US$25,882 as 90% of shareholders elected the scrip dividend. In view of the reported loss after tax in the 18 month period of US$60,412, a final dividend has been passed. The interim dividend was declared in line with the Group policy to declare a twice covered dividend each year. However, in the current environment where liquidity challenges remain this policy will continue to be pursued through the scrip dividend alternative that does not consume Group cash while offering the shareholders improved liquidity in the counter, opportunity to increase shareholding in the company for those who opt for script and a liquidity mechanism for shareholders opting to sell their scrip dividend. Directorate Mr. Stewart Mangoma resigned as Chief Executive Officer and board member effective 28 February 2013. We thank him for the valuable contribution he made to the Group. He was replaced by Mr. Canada Malunga, whom prior to his appointment was a non-executive director. Honourable Paddy Tendayi Zhanda (Snr) resigned from the Board on 27 September 2013 following his appointment to the position of Deputy Minister of Agriculture. He had served on the Board for nineteen years, most of that time as Chairman of the Board. His insight and leadership will be missed and we wish him great success in his new appointment. Mr. Michael Tapera was appointed Finance Director and member of the Board effective 5 September 2013. Mr Paddy Tongai Zhanda (Jnr) was appointed to the Board as non-executive director effective 25 October 2013. We welcome the new Board members and wish them great success at Masimba. Appreciation I wish to extend a special thank you to my colleagues on the Board for their support during the period. I would also like to thank management and staff for their commitment and dedication towards delivering value to the stakeholders. Last but not least, I extend my appreciation to customers, suppliers and regulatory authorities for their continued support. For and on Behalf of the Board G Sebborn 24 March 2014
