Tough Economy. Tough year. At least it remained profitable and is paying a dividend albeit 50% vs 2018.

New wheat plant will contribute for the full FY 2019-2020.
New soya meal plant will contribute for the full FY 2019-2020.

2019-2020 is looking tough though for manufacturing firms.

Time to take the heat. Hope the kitchen won't be to hot for this counter.

BBI will solve it

No surprise there. I had braced for it. The next 6 months will not be any easier.
Huge VAT refund outstanding. It was 400mn+ in June 2019 but I doubt there has been much change seeing how GoK has not been paying legitimate creditors.

I am in several lifestyle groups in FB and in two recent polls carried out in these groups, Unga products came out tops and had a strong brand presence, with Famila uji and Exe products mentioned almost universally. Nothing scientific about that poll and totally anecdotal, but Unga has loyal users.

Even before I bought my first share in Unga, its products were staples in the VVS household/family.

Elianto (sold to Bidco)
Buitoni (no idea what happened to the brand)
Elliot's (sold)
And of course the eponymous "Unga" products including EXE, Jogoo, etc

Of course, we had fewer choices at the time.

Bidco, Kapa, etc were not around. We had few imports (or local products) to compete vs Buitoni. The others eg Mombasa Millers, Kitui Millers, etc were probably small players.
Supaloaf, Akiyda, Broadway, etc were much smaller or not present.

I am not sure where Unga went wrong but it is not the giant it was.

From time to time I will buy "freshly milled" flour or take my own grains for milling but "Unga" remains the preferred brand when I buy pre-milled products.

Awful. Blaming the usual suspect.

At least it's a profit.Though a big drop from 500m to 66m.Better than a loss

Remember that this is their full year result. H1 will definitely be a loss. Only banks and Safaricom will get through the C19 with minor scratches, the rest are severely wounded

If you compare the half year results and Full year, second half the company made a loss.
If you project to H1 2020/2021 it is going to be a loss

And BAT will also get through.

Yes, 1H 2020-2021 looks dire but they have managed to keep debt under check. There is an increase in current liabilities offset with current assets. I am waiting for the annual report but that increase in CA looks like inventory funded by supplier debt.

The problem with Balance Sheets is they are snapshots taken at specific days. The situation could change within a month once the raw materials are milled and out the door.

Unga needs to reduce operational expenses during this pandemic or it will continue to struggle.
