URC 9M2018 Net Sales Up 3% to PhP95.5B

Universal Robina Corp. (PSE: URC) posted net sales for the first nine-months of calendar year 2018 of PhP95.5 billion, a 3% increase versus last year. Sales growth in the third quarter ending September decelerated to 1% from the 6% posted in the first half. Recovery in Branded Consumer Foods (BCF) Philippines and Vietnam growth were partly offset by weaker New Zealand trading and the shift in timing on sugar sales. Operating income showed good improvement in third quarter posting 5% growth driven by the impact of selling price increases in BCF Philippines, continuous recovery in Vietnam, and effective cost management. This helped improve nine months operating income to Php10.1 billion, a tapering decline of 6% versus last year compared to the 11% decline in the first half.

URC nine months net income amounted to PhP7 billion, a decline of 17% due to lower operating income and foreign exchange loss due to the weaker peso. URC’s financial position remains strong with ending cash balance of PhP14.6 billion and a net debt position of PhP27.3 billion due to the remaining debt associated with the Oceania acquisitions. Gearing remains low and manageable at 0.51.
