ForFarmers 2022 first-half results

Increase underlying EBITDA due to positive results in countries outside of the Netherlands

Financial highlights for first-half of 20221:

  • Total Feed2 volume:                       -7.4% to 4.5 million tonnes; due to like-for-like decline in all clusters
    of which compound feed:               -7.9% to 3.2 million tonnes; decline in all clusters
  • Gross profit:                                  +18.3% to €257.3 million; higher raw material and energy prices largely passed on in Q2; 1H 2021 depressed by German incident
  • Underlying EBITDA:                       +5.6% to €43.1 million; higher gross profit and efficiency measures
  • Underlying net profit3:                    -4.5% to €17.1 million; mainly due to increased interest expenses and higher effective tax rate
  • Working capital:                             increase of €21.7 million (year-on-year) to €75.0 million due to sharp increase in raw material prices


  1. Results are always compared year-on-year
  2. Total Feed: the entire ForFarmers product portfolio consisting of compound feed, specialties, co-products (including DML products), seed and other products (such as forage)
  3. Net profit: in this context is defined as profit attributable to shareholders of the Company


Commenting on the 2022 first-half results ForFarmers CEO Chris Deen said:
 

“While still in my induction period at ForFarmers it is my privilege to present these better-than-originally-expected first-half results, mainly due to the second quarter results. This is a great achievement by the team amid challenging market conditions due to the war in Ukraine and the consequential further increase in raw material and energy prices. Our total volumes fell, mainly due to a decline in the pig sector in Netherlands/Belgium and the United Kingdom, whereas poultry volumes in Poland grew. The cost increases could only be passed on in the chain in the course of the second quarter. This explains the result improvement versus the first quarter.  Finally, the absolute rise in gross profit in the first half-year was higher than the absolute increase in operating expenses. Underlying EBITDA consequently was higher than originally expected

We are also pleased about the recently announced joint venture between ForFarmers UK and the poultry feed company 2Agriculture in the United Kingdom. The proposed joint venture is subject to regulatory approval in the United Kingdom.

Looking ahead, there are still many uncertainties at present, especially due to the war in Ukraine. In addition, we need to consider a possible new Covid wave and the low water levels in the rivers in the Netherlands. In view of this we consider it unwise to provide any guidance about the expected development of the results in the second half of 2022 or a possible resumption of the share buy-back programme.”
