Sunshine Holdings posted a consolidated revenue of Rs. 16.3 billion in FY15, an improvement of 11.1% year-on-year (YoY).
Key business segments, particularly Healthcare and Agribusiness, grew above industry averages despite challenging conditions.
“Despite the challenging conditions in many of our key segments, we were successful in increasing revenue growth above industry averages; this healthy financial performance underscores Sunshine Holdings’ solid fundamentals,” Sunshine Holdings Group Managing Director, Vish Govindasamy said.
“The company’s visionary strategic initiatives are continuing to pay dividends in boosting long-term growth - such as the diversification into palm oil - and we remain optimistic about future prospects, despite potential future challenges.”
There was growth across the board; fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), healthcare and agribusiness revenues grew at 20.4%, 10.2% and 9.6% respectively YoY; group profit after tax (PAT), however, was affected partially by goodwill written off (Rs. 62 million) and declined by 10.4% to Rs. 1,047 million for the financial year ended March 31, 2015. Net asset value per share of the company increased to Rs. 39.23, compared to Rs. 36.23 at the beginning of the year (FY14), Profit to equity holders (PATMI) was down 21.1% YoY to Rs. 542 million at group level.
The EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) margin experienced a marginal contraction, to 8.7% in FY15 from 10.9% in FY14; improved margins in the FMCG segment were offset by a contraction of margins in the Agribusiness and Healthcare sectors because of unfavourable market conditions.
Healthcare, which accounted for 37.2% of the group’s turnover for the period, posted strong revenue growth at 10.2% YoY to Rs. 6.1 billion; however, stagnation in overall market growth, according to IMS data adversely impacted the pharma segment (which accounted for 67.3% of Healthcare revenue in FY15).
Despite difficult market conditions, revenue from pharma grew 9.7% YoY to Rs. 4.1 billion while Surgical, Retail, Diagnostics and Wellness sub-sectors expanded 18.1%, 14.9%, 9.7% and 3.5% YoY.
