Transpaco Limited. JSE: TPC

Transpaco Limited shares

Background of Transpaco

  • Transpaco Limited is a manufacturer, distributor and recycler of a portfolio of paper and plastic products, catering to the retail, agricultural, mining, industrial and pharmaceutical sectors of South Africa.

  • The group’s products include both plain and printed plastic bags, cartons, pallet wrap, cast film, cardboard tubular cores and rigid packaging, for sale to clients ranging from large-scale retail chains to small boutiques. The group is also one of South Africa’s largest polyethylene plastic recyclers.

  • Transpaco’s history stems back to the establishment of the Transvaal Paper and Packaging company in the 1940s, followed by an expansion programme involving moves to buy several competitors. The company today employs over 1 400 people. Transpaco shares are available to buy on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), where the company has a market cap of R966 million.

Transpaco Shares Growth Driver

  • Transpaco has a decentralised business model operating from nine manufacturing sites, distributing products nationally through depots and independent agents. Of the group’s two divisions, Plastics Products is the largest, contributing around 70% of turnover and 64% of operating profit. The group’s other division is Paper and Board Products.

  • The group’s 2016 financial report revealed some excellent financial data, with operating profit rising by more than 42% to R157 million and headline earnings per share rising by 35% to 329.6 cents. This was attributed to a focus on cost control, maximising efficiencies, investing capital in plant and equipment and successfully integrating an acquisition of East Rand Plastics. This was further bolstered by increased volumes and extent price increases.

  • All operations within the Plastics division made positive contributions to group profit, with a number of initiatives underway to improve efficiency and production capacity. Demand for raw plastic from the group’s recycling operations has consistently exceeded capacity, whilst plant and equipment investment continues to be prioritised.

  • Businesses within the Paper and Board division also produced positive results, with investments made in improving production capacity by upgrading key manufacturing processes. Overall, Transpaco looks to be an impressive company that is well-managed and capable of growing further in the future, with solid profit increases forecast.

Transpaco Group Investor Tip

  • Transpaco’s results reflect a resilient company which has managed to chart upward growth in a trade environment which is less than ideal. Transpaco shares have been
    a profitable buy for investors over the past few years, with the live online JSE chart showing a steady rise in Transpaco share price from R14.60 in 2012 to R29 today. Transpaco share price has been particularly buoyant in 2016, with many investment analysts predicting that this is the start of an extended growth path. The group has certainly established itself as a company worthy of investor attention, making Transpaco shares a solid potential buy.
