Interwaste shares

Background of Interwaste Holdings

  • Interwaste Holdings Limited is a holding company with subsidiaries involved in collection and disposal of waste, environmental management, landfill management, development and implementation of alternatives to landfill disposal, production of organic compost, metal recovery, water and sewerage treatment and specialised industrial cleaning. The group aims to provide integrated waste management solutions.

  • The company’s history started in South Africa in 1989. After two decades of growth, Interwaste shares were first put up for sale on the AltX of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 2007, and transferred to the JSE Main Board in 2014.

  • The company’s business activities are conducted through the Interwaste, Envirowaste and Greens brands. Whilst most revenue is generated from South Africa, the company has operations throughout southern Africa. Interwaste has a JSE market cap of R356 million and recorded revenue of R957 million in 2015. The live online stocks chart shows that Interwaste share price has struggled on the Main Board.

Interwaste Holdings Shares Growth Driver

  • Despite solid performance from the group’s core businesses, Interwaste had a difficult year in 2015 due to the impact of low commodity and oil prices on the effluent treatment, commodities trading and Mozambican divisions. Overall, the group’s profits declined to R42 million from R45 million the year before. This has all weighed heavily on Interwaste share price, which dropped from a high of R1.59 in 2014 down to 76 cents in August 2016.

  • The waste management division had revenue growth of 12.5%, but a 23.8% decrease in operating profit. Compost manufacturing and sales also grew turnover by 12.5%, but produced improved operating results of R5 million compared to a R1.2 million loss in 2014. The landfill management business was a star performer, enjoying revenue growth of 28.4% and operating profit growth of 13.5%. The division has changed its business model over the past few years, eliminating unprofitable contracts while focusing on larger contracts and developing new landfill space.

  • The effluent and commodities trade businesses were badly affected by oil and commodities industry customers deferring clean ups and reducing discretionary spend. Both of these businesses are seen as low-cost, positive contributors that will improve when the volume of clean ups increases.

Interwaste Holdings Investor Tip

  • Interwaste plans to grow profits through the opening of several new businesses in Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth. The portfolio is being diversified with the development of the first refuse-derived fuel plant in South Africa, which has already made product available for sale. This line of business will be key to Interwaste’s strategy going forward, as four plants have been targeted, with a forecast production of 100 000 tonnes per year.

  • In a tough economic environment, Interwaste share price has not been performing well. Successful diversification into new revenue streams will be a decisive factor in driving the group’s success going forward and encourage investors to buy the shares. Today, however, Interwaste shares are not a tempting buy for investors.
