Teejay 6-month net profit up 20% to Rs 705 million despite challenges

October, 31, 2018


Teejay Lanka PLC, Sri Lanka’s only multinational textile manufacturer, has reported sales of Rs 14.4 billion and profit after tax of Rs 704.8 million at Group level for the six months ending 30th September 2018, reflecting healthy growth of 25 per cent and 20 per cent respectively for the period.

Group profit before tax improved by 15 per cent to Rs 848.6 million, the Weft knit fabric specialist with manufacturing operations in Sri Lanka and India said in a filing with the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE).

Revenue in the second quarter of 2018-19 was up 25 per cent to Rs 7.6 billion, profit before tax grew 11 per cent to Rs 500.2 million and net profit increased by 15 per cent to Rs 425.5 million over the corresponding three months of the previous year, the Company said.

Teejay Lanka Chairman Mr Bill Lam said this was the fourth consecutive quarter of revenue and net profit growth for the Company in the face of stiff challenges, and was made possible by expanded capacity in the Group and a strong order book arising from the GSP facilities that it enjoys.

He disclosed that although margins were impacted by raw material and utility cost increases in the second quarter, Teejay had been able to improve its gross margin to 11.3 per cent from 10.2 per cent in the corresponding quarter as a result of better loading and an improved mix, with its USA and EU business units increasing sales volumes.

Consequently, gross profit for the Group at Rs 859 million for the second quarter and Rs 1.5 billion for the six months, reflected growth of 15 per cent YoY after absorbing higher utility and raw material costs and the depreciation of the Rupee, Mr Lam said.

The Teejay Group has a carried forward cash balance of Rs 3.4 billion at the end of the quarter reviewed despite a dividend payment of Rs 632 million. “The increase in working capital was driven by inventories to support expanded capacity and a strong order book in the coming quarters which have historically been the Group’s peak months,” Mr Lam said.

Looking ahead, he said cotton price volatility is expected to ease out towards the end third quarter while utility costs and the prices of dyes and chemicals are projected to increase. Amidst these challenges, the Group is gearing up for its peak quarters with the GSP benefit, an anticipated surge in EU business, a strengthened customer portfolio, plans to bring in more business and fully exploit its expansion in India in the second half of the financial year.

One of the region’s largest textile manufacturers, Teejay supplies fabric to some of the best international brands across the world. Teejay Lanka PLC is a public quoted company with 39 per cent public ownership. The company is backed by Sri Lanka’s largest apparel exporter, Brandix Lanka which has a 33 per cent stake and Pacific Textiles of Hong Kong which owns 28 per cent of the company.

An ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 compliant company and the first in the industry to develop green fabric, Teejay has been listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) since 2011 and was included in the S&P Top 20 Index in Sri Lanka last year. The Company has also been named among the Forbes ‘200 Best under a Billion in Asia’ and been recognised as the ‘International Textile Firm of the Year’ and the ‘International Dyer and Finisher’ by World Textile Institute, London.

Ranferdi's kind mentality is called as slave mentality, the slave mentality drives one to be dependent on other more and more as time goes by, The WB(World Bank) has identified lack of enterpreniership and innovation as prime reasons for low growth rate of economy of Sri Lanka, This is what we have to address, Not going after other countries as slaves, But we need to listen to everybody but not execute everything they say, and stand on our own feet, Make our country attractive because of effciency and hospitality, discipline, perseverence

Speculating Risk is not slave mentality.. But accepting dictator and justifying such actions is.
