Santova shares

Background of Santova

  • Santova Limited is a specialist supply chain management services provider based in South Africa, focusing on non-asset-based, end-to-end global trade solutions, operating from offices throughout the country and in Ghana, Mauritius, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, China and Hong Kong.

  • The group’s history stems back to 2002 when it listed on the Development Capital Market of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) as a customs and excise clearing agent for smaller trade customers and major fresh produce exporters. Santova shares moved to the AltX of the JSE in 2006, and today the much-expanded business is listed on the JSE Main Board in the Support Services sector.

  • The group targets companies seeking worldwide sourcing and distribution of products in multiple markets, requiring sophisticated operational and logistics solutions. Santova’s functions include supply chain solutions, business intelligence, logistics services, client sourcing and procurement management, courier services and financial services. Santova currently has a JSE market cap of R610 million, and Santova share price has had an excellent run on the live online stocks chart in recent years

Santova Shares Growth Driver

  • Santova differentiates itself through a number of key factors. The group’s international infrastructure provides geographical and multi currency diversification that hedges local currency variability. A non-asset-based model results in a low fixed cost base that can be quickly adjusted, whilst reducing risk to stakeholders in a high variability market. The group’s one-stop business model provides multiple business opportunities and diversification of revenue streams, and comprehensive in-house capabilities give customers access to world class solutions.

  • All of these factors have contributed to a highly impressive performance in the last few years. Before tax profits increased from R33 million in 2013 to R66 million in 2016. Headline earnings per share increased from 17 cents to 34 cents, whilst net asset value per share rose from 108 cents to 245 cents. This despite the industry in general experiencing flat growth, which negatively affected most stocks within the sector.

  • Offshore earnings now contribute more than half of total earnings, supporting the group’s vision of being a recognised global brand. The group recently made a move to buy the Tradeway Shipping Group in the UK, with the forecast that this will boost offshore earnings even further and protect the company from any rand weakness. Other recent developments included establishing a presence in Ghana, Germany and Mauritius through the purchase of several freight companies. Meanwhile, the group’s financial data was supported by profitable performances from operations in South Africa.

  • The group is also initiating the redesign of exiting ICT systems in favour of next generation systems to boost efficiency, reliability and customer loyalty
