ELPL.N0000 (Elpitiya Plantations PLC)

Post by yellow knife on Mon Sep 07, 2015 4:42 pm

Elpitiya Plantations belong to Aitken Spence Plantations Management PLC (61.64%) and Aitken Spence Plantations Management PLC is one on the most illiquid company listed.

Company is developing six pillars of revenue namely tea, rubber, Palm Oil, Hydro Power, Tea exports and commercial forestry.

Company strategically thinking to break loose from commodity trap and place the company on a platform that does not depend on weather and fluctuating commodity prices and hence diversify the operations.

EPS of the company was maintained at 4 for 2015 but its ability to maintain the same for next year will be challenging as seen across the industry.

Sometimes you find Nonsense relationships among two variables..

Market value and net assets per share normally move hand in hand but this is an exceptional behaviour

Noteworthy achievements during 2014/15. Palm Oil , low country ta and tea in the Pussellawa regions recorded remarkable results.

New Peacock Estate in Pussllawa achieved the highest ever yield of 3008 kg/ha  in Sri Lanka in the large estate category .

Hydro Power project has contributed 4,460 KW to the grid. Four more hydro-power projects in the pipeline . Other renewable energy generations sources are also under study including Wind, Solar, Biogas and currently initiated discussions for  a biogas generation project with a company which will be powered with POMPE ( Palm Oil Mill Effluent).

Eco Tourism is in the demand and many plantation companies are considering the possibility. ELPL is also considering that and Agar Wood to add revenue in future.

When challenge faced by all estates is shrinking work force. ELPL states that they are considering steps to mechanize the estate operations.

However i like to quote following

The fruits in oil palm bunches ripen unevenly  and have to be surgically  cut out at least every ten days to avoid rotting  and pest infestation. Engineers have never been able to mechanize the task and the work can only be done by hand. (54. How Asia Works)

Further elevation level of our tea estates make it difficult to mechanize the pruning process

I am a believer of subsidizing agriculture and following is quoted from p.4 of ELPL annual report 2015

We are grateful to the Government for continuing the fertilizer subsidy. the record yields we have achieved in our plantations without doubt is due to this support from the government and this has helped all stake holders to reap its benefits.

This trend started in plantation sector as their cost of production was increasing for tea,rubber while market prices were not increasing proportionately /sufficiently ( actually it even dropped in rubber) .

Having a lower PE ratio does not always mean the share is attractive as future income is the important factor.
