AMG Packaging & Paper Ltd Q4 2020 Sales Up Slightly. Higher Expenses Drag Down YTD Profits

AMG Packaging & Paper Company Ltd (AMG) has released their August 2020 (Q4) numbers. Here are the highlights.

This Quarter (2020Q4) vs Same Quarter Last Year

  • Revenue of $186.95m vs $174.68m (7.02%) Slight uptick in sales for the 3 months ending August. Management also managed to contain the increase in manufacturing costs resulting in higher gross profits for the quarter
  • Net Income / Net Loss totaled $18.22m vs $23.25m (-21.62%) Expenses are in line with the prior year, however management is seeing less ‘Other Income’ this quarter, to boost the profits. Last year Other Income amounted to $13m vs $2m this year. Foreign Exchange differences arising on transactions are recognised as “Other Income”.

Year To Date (2020Q4)

  • Revenue of $720.45m. Down by -5.49% or -41.85m YTD YoY. Management attributes this to falling sales due to slowdown in the economy from COVID-19. (It would have had to be in prior quarters)
  • Net Income / Net Loss totaled $56.02m. Declining by -5.27% or -3.12m YTD YoY. Despite higher gross profits, the company faced increased Operating expenses YTD (specifically Financial costs +$4m, FX Loss +$3m, Depreciation +$3m). Additionally Other Income is down -$10m YTD. The company has increased finance costs relating to a $100m Bond issued this year maturing in 2026 at a Fixed rate of 7.20%
  • Cash Flow From Operating Activities of $155.31m. Up by 52.67% or 53.58m YTD YoY. Strong cash flow from operating activities, which gives AMG ample liquidity during COVID.
