Piramal Glass Ceylon proposes a 38% dividend
Turnover Rs 5.5 Billion & Profit After Tax at Rs 725 Million
Colombo, April 30, 2013: Piramal Glass Ceylon PLC has concluded yet another successful year and declared its results for the year ended 31st March 2013.

The record of continuous growth was established with the turnover being at Rs. 5.5 billion and the highest ever PAT being recorded at Rs.725 million.

The revenue & the Profit after Tax grew by 6% over last year. The Board of Directors have declared a first & final dividend of 38% for the year ended 31st March 2013 as against the 36% the previous year. The earnings per share too have increased by 6% to Rs 0.76 per share in FY 13.
Revenue achieved for the year was at Rs. 5,501 million as against the Rs.5,197 of the previous year. The main contributor towards the revenue growth was the export market with a year on year growth of 12%.

The domestic market was able to sustain a value growth of 4% mainly due to the new products launched during the year. Yet the volumes in the domestic were showed a decline of 10% as against FY 12. The main reason of decline in the domestic market was due to the low consumption of new bottles in the liquor segment. This is the outcome of import of cheap, substandard, branded, used second hand bottles from India to Sri Lanka for the consumption in the Liquor segment.

The profitability was sustained mainly due to the export product portfolio. The export revenue continued to grow for the 4th consecutive year.

The company has achieved an export value of Rs.1,370 million as against Rs. 1,225 million in FY12. The market reach established in the Australian & New Zealand markets last year has paid dividends during the year under review. The Company has launched several new products in different shapes and colours in the Domestic & International market.

The Operating profit during the year saw a dip of 2% from 30% in FY12 to 28% in FY13. The main reason being the energy cost increase. The furnace oil increase of 80% during the early part of the year had a hard impact on the company’s energy cost. Glass
manufacturing is high energy intensive industry with over 40% of its cost being energy costs consisting of electricity, gas & furnace oil.

The current electricity cost increase announced by CEB/Public Utilities Commission has a substantial impact on Company’s energy bill. As requested earlier the company has once again retaliated the Public Utilities Commission and the concerned government department to phase out the increase so that the burden can be absorbed by the company and the valued customers over a period of time.

FY13 year saw a marked increase in the interest rates in the country which further impacted the profitability. Yet the company was able to manage the situation to some extent due to the foreign currency loan portion in its loan portfolio.

The company has been able to hold onto its profitability amidst these negative environmental conditions purely due to the high focus on productivity parameters. The production efficiency increase it has achieved during the year proves this fact.

These production milestones were possible due to the high concentration the management has put on the Initiative of the Manufacturing Excellence programme it has established in the plant. The Glass manufacturing facility at Horana has already reached level 2 of manufacturing excellence with the a target of reaching level 3 by early part of the next financial year.

Piramal Glass also continued to be recognised at national level for its performance with being awarded with National Business Excellence Award, Global commerce excellence award, a Merit award at the CNCI Achiever Awards -2012 and the Gold Award at the Export award ceremony held by the National Chamber of Exporters. This is the 3rd Consecutive year that the company has achieved this Gold Award.

We are happy with the company’s performance and confident of its potential. Though the domestic environment and the Market does not seem too exciting we are confident and hopeful that the seeds that we have planted in the international markets will bear harvest in the coming years and despite the domestic market downturn.

Piramal Glass has recently disclosed to the SEC that it has agreed to sell part of the 21acres of its Rathmalana Land to Ms. Prime Lands Private Limited at a consideration of Rs. 355 million. The transaction would be completed before the end of the 1st Quarter of FY14. We would also like to inform that the proceeds would be utilized to repay the high cost long term loans.

They have painted a rosy picture. But last quarter eps is only 11 cts. But I think they can sustain the current earnings by reducing debts.

Yes i hope they will utilize the land proceeds to settle the borrowings, but what is impact of the electricity bill, specially if the authorities not look in favorable terms?

40% of cost =electricity, gas & furnace oil.
Electricity increase is about 20%.

what fraction of cost is based on electricity. There admin charges has been reduced.

Last quarter Rs 0.11 does not look appealing specially as there was a Forex exhange amount accounted for in 2012.HAve to see whats up in quarter report.

Anyway with .38 dividend and on present fundamentals GLAS is an attractive penny stock.

Gas & furnace oil costs can reduce for them since these prices have come down in the world market. Also the land sale will give them some money to reduce debt. Reducing foreign debt will also reduce foreign exchange losses going forward. So I do not see a big impact on costs for this company. The best penny stock for me to hold without any fear.

Yes if any body can keep GLAS for another five years can reap benefits for sure. In 2009 they gave a massive rights issue @ Rs1.90 per share. There were excess rights at that time because most of the investors didn't want to put money to it. They went behind high flyers and look what has happened now. But wise people who invested glas on that period must have recovered all the investment by now after 2009. why they gave a Rs 2.0 dividend in one year and later continuously gave .35cents dividend annually. share is still trading at Rs6.60 now. yeild is around 6% / annum. better than savings rate of any banks in sri lanka. this should trade like of DOCK, NEST,LLUB in the mkt. since they continuously offered higher dividends annually.
