27 spritzers fiscal year for the first half of 2018 (1H18)
Revenue grew by 32. 7% year-on-year (y-o-y)to RM13. 5mil.
This is due to the increase in local bottled water sales and the reduction in advertising and promotion costs in China.
For 2H18, MIDF Research expects revenue to be weak mainly due to rising sales costs.
Nevertheless, the reduction in operating losses in China will partially ease the situation and continue to maintain strong domestic performance.
About 70% of the sales Cost of Spritzer is on the packaging.
PET resin costs about 50% of packaging costs.
The price of PET Resin has risen 24%, according to research institutes. o-
Y or RM1, 000/ton, is consistent with the rising trend of oil prices and the weakening of ringgit.
Due to the above factors, management expects the price of its products to rise by 5%.
"We expect the operating losses of Chinese operations to be further reduced in fiscal 18 and further reduced from RM10mil in fiscal 17.
"Please note that the loss is reduced to RM2mil at 1H18.
"The operational losses recorded by FY17 are mainly affected by expensive advertising strategies," said MIDF Research . ".
Previously, the group focused on leasing space to display products in retail stores.
Since then, management has adjusted its marketing strategy to engage directly with consumers.
Although prices are expected to rise, MIDF Research believes sales growth remains at a single-digit high.
This is based on the expectation that Spritzer's competitors will also raise prices in response to higher PET resin costs.
