REEF and VFIN- Accountants who can't calculate

Post by innam on Wed Jun 01, 2011 4:05 pm

First topic message reminder :

REEF results are out and i'm sure we'll get multiple posts about the magical EPS figure of 7 for the March quarter that they have reported.

http://www.cse.lk/cmt/upload_report_file/568_1306907002379.pdf

But it seems that some of the accountants working for CSE listed companies don't seem to know how to use a calculator.

REEF profit after tax for the March quarter 2011 is 14 million and with 47 million shares outstanding my excel gives a figure of 30 cents but REEF is showing an EPS figure of 7.27
Profit after tax March quarter 2010 is 9 million and with 47 million shares outstanding my excel gives a figure of 20 cents but REEF is showing an EPS figure of 4.93
i have left out the dilution from the warrants to keep it simple for the moment

The same thing happened with VFIN yesterday and with two DONKEY LEVEL mistakes in two days, the troubling question to ask is, is this a deliberate attempt to mislead retailers by manufacturing incorrect EPS numbers or aren't they bothered about accuracy?
http://forum.srilankaequity.com/t4305-vfin-good-results-will-it-shoot-up-soon#29045

Don't the CEOs/CFOs/Finance Managers of these companies take look at what they file?

VFIN is good at below Rs 50.

REEF is good to watch and buy as there would be huge capital gains. For me REEF.W0017 is comparably good. My view is based on the current trend and the information currently available, but not on fundamentals.

Please search for information available and evaluate by your self as money is yours.

So how come we can expect a reliable work from them?

this is nothing to do with auditors. These interim figures are un audited. They responsible for annual audited figures only. Even that case prepartion and presentation of FS in a responsible of Directors.

Eventhough they are paid less than state workers, they are doing great job for the entire market definitly. So, don scold auditors in this case plssssssssssss

If you are serious . no can do. This is for quarter ending March 31st isn't it.

In anycase it is inexcusable to make such drastic errors. If they have an alternative way of calculating EPS it is in decent interest to let the public know.

This can not be a mistake nor an ignorance.

As a manager you know the position of you company. You do not need a report to have a general idea of you company. That is in your day to day life.

When there is a 7 Rupee figure at the bottom for REEF any donkey who go through the report before releasing it should know that is impossible.

A similar mistake that I found in Browns IPO..... (I posted this in another forum)

I was looking at Browns IPO Prospectus & came across this funny EPS figure in the accounts for the 9 months ended 31.12.2010. As per the prospectus, the EPS number is LKR4.917. There were 98mn shares as of 31 March 2010 and this was sub divided in an 1:10 ratio in 16/11/2010. Post split number of shares became 980mn shares.

As per the income statement, net profit for the 9 month period ended 31.12.2010 is LKR1,445.556mn.

Therefore, based on the above numbers the EPS for the period is;

EPS = LKR1,445.556mn/980mn

= LKR1.475.


So how did they get an EPS of LKR4.917? Is this an error or done deliberately?

I Guess they have done a wrong Calculation. The below could have been their calculation which is wrong...

Net Profit for the period LKR1,445.556mn

Weighted Average Number of shares (98mn+882mn/9months*2months) = 294mn shares

EPS = LKR1,445.556/294mn shares
EPS = LKR 4.917

Anyone with accounting knowledge would know that when there is a share split, EPS needs to be calculated based on post split numbers not by weighted average number of shares.

Welcome to the forum buddy.. Hope you're the same person..
And good finding..
However I think even with the correct EPS figure of 1.4, Browns inv. is fairly ok.. but its shame on EPS calculation Wink
First VFIN then REEF now BIL.. Seems like accountants are not that intelligent these days or authorities don't care.. Shame on us for not looking at this earlier too. Evil or Very Mad

These are the ways that companies use to fool the investers who are not with good knowledge in accounting.
Actually there is some logic behind the method,used by company to calculate EPS.Person without proper accounting knowledge can not understand such tricks.
It is really nice of our experts that they have kept an eye on such cunning tricks and posted those to the form.
Thank u very much to all.Exclamation

Can anyone tell me who is the ultimate owner of REEF ?

Is that still Mr. KDD (PABC) or Mr. DJ (Imagewise)

(Pl. Refer above report )

In VFIN its anualised EPS, not for the qtr. Correctly all companies should show their EPS in anualised format. So in VFIN EPS of 4.64 is correct and it trades @ PER of 9.2 which is atractive.

Companies should disclose only their quarterly & year to date EPS in the quarterly accounts. Because, that would be the actual number based on actual results. When Quarterly EPS is annualised, it implies that company management tells us that the company is going to make profits similar to the current period in the remaining quarters which is totally inaccurate!

Therefore, EPS, should never be annualised in the Quarterly accounts/prospectus. It's up to the investors to predict what will be results for the coming periods.

My point is they had a EPS of Rs 7 during last quarter due to the land revaluation and it is in the balance sheet.

Eps = Earnings for the reporing period
           No. Of shares (cumulative)
