Extract Group Investor Tip

  • Diversification of the Extract Group was evident in its consistent performance for the year, despite it facing a number of challenges on the back of tough trading conditions. During the year, the group focused on a number of areas. These included an embargo placed on capital expenditure, preservation of cash flows and strengthening of the balance sheet. These were managed by strict divisional debt levels in light of the capital markets remaining contracted, redeployment of excess assets and improved management of working capital.

  • Eqstra, now called Extract also focused on cost containment, closure and right-sizing of underperforming businesses. Despite the obstacles, the group increased operating profit by 10.6% to R1 037 million, an improvement from recent history’s R938 million and profit after taxation marginally by R3 million to R254 million (after an impairment of leasing assets in the Contract Mining and Plant Rental division of R97 million).

  • The improved performance of the group’s overall liquidity position was as a result of curtailed expansionary capital expenditure and stringent divisional debt management.

  • Fleet Management and Logistics produced good results, despite the decreased growth rate as part of the short-term cash preservation strategy. The continued drive of value added product sales, which are less capital intensive in nature, has reported a 13.3% growth for the year.

  • This progression aligns with the strategic intent of evolving the group into an asset-light integrated services business. Industrial equipment delivered a solid performance, with better gross margins in the South African forklift business and increased market share.

  • The division’s business in the United Kingdom and Ireland continues to generate excellent returns with an increase of profit before taxation of 32.9%, based on higher sales volumes and a weaker exchange rate. Contract Mining and Plant Rental’s operating profit increased by 28.9%.

  • The division recorded a loss before taxation of R38 million for the year (after an impairment of R97 million) compared to a loss of R24 million in the prior year. The turnaround strategy implemented has resulted in improved efficiencies and utilisations, the benefits of which will be seen in the coming year.

  • The cost of holding excess assets from contracts which have terminated over the last 18 months, had a significant impact on Contract Mining and Plant Rental’s results. The successful deployment of excess assets in the latter part of the 2015 financial year, will positively impact the division’s results going forward. The Benga contract in Mozambique concludes in December 2015.

  • Management is in negotiations with the concession holders to either extend the contract or sell the assets to them. The group will continue to place additional emphasis on the ongoing improvement of margins against persisting adverse market conditions and challenges.

  • The decrease in the net working capital to revenue percentage can be attributable to the dedicated focus that working capital management is receiving. Lower inventory levels in Industrial Equipment and negotiated payment terms with the OEMs have assisted in driving working capital levels down. The group’s provisioning policies were strictly applied throughout the year.

  • Extract Limited’s forklift businesses both in South Africa and the UK performed well. Extract expects that this performance will continue into the new year. The forklift market in South Africa is forecasted to remain flat on last year while the UK market should increase marginally in line with GDP growth.

  • Extract’s fleet management and logistics division faces intense competition from major players for whom full vertical integration with motor dealership operations offers an advantage, and who due to scale can offer preferential funding rates.

  • The group has successfully implemented a turnaround in its contract mining and plant rental division, with losses curtailed and contracts, revised where required. The group will ensure that execution will be strictly according to contract terms in future with no deviations accepted.
