Bumitama Agri has reported earnings of IDR1.26 trillion ($108 million) in its 2HFY2023 ended December, a 94.7% surge y-o-y.

This is on the back of the increase in revenue, which resulted from higher sales volume of palm products. 

Revenue for the 2HFY2023 increased by 15.8% y–o-y to IDR7.95 trillion. 

For the full year, however, earnings declined by 13.3% y-o-y to IDR2.45 trillion. Revenue decreased by 2.4% to IDR15.44 trillion, mainly contributed by the weakening of palm product sales price offset by increase in its sales volume.

Crude palm oil (CPO) sales in 2023, accounting 91% of total revenue, climbed 2% versus 2022 due to 13% more sales volume. On the other hand, palm kernel (PK) sales suffered 34% setback due to 36% fall in average selling price and settled at normalised range at the close of 2023.

Cost of sales grew by 6.2% to IDR10.7 trillion in FY2023, mainly due to sales of last year ending stock with higher unit cost affected by higher purchase price of fresh fruit bunches (FFB) plasma and third party as well as prior year higher fertiliser application volume.

Looking ahead, the company expects a slight upward trend of palm oil prices in the first half of 2024, mainly due to the anticipated weather impact of El Nino on the output of palm oil, and the potential tightening of palm oil supplies arising from the lower palm production and Ramadan seasons. Additionally, Indonesia’s government’s continued commitment to implementing the “B35 programme” may support the increase in palm oil prices. 

Shares in Bumitama Agri closed 0.5 cents lower or 0.78% down on Feb 26 at 63.5 cents.
