*  the Group uses 'underlying profit' in its internal financial reporting to distinguish between ongoing business performance and non-trading items, as more fully described in note 7 to the condensed financial statements.  Management considers this to be a key measure which provides additional information to enhance understanding of the Group's underlying business performance.

    the accounts have been restated due to changes in accounting policies upon adoption of IFRS 9 'Financial Instruments' and IFRS 15 'Revenue from Contracts with Customers', as set out in note 1 to the condensed financial statements.

The interim dividend of US¢6.50 per share will be payable on 10th October 2018 to shareholders on the register of members at the close of business on 17th August 2018.

 

DAIRY FARM INTERNATIONAL HOLDINGS LIMITED

HALF-YEARLY RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30TH JUNE 2018

 

OVERVIEW

The Group continues to face challenges on several fronts, including increasing competitive pressures and a number of underperforming businesses within the portfolio.  In order to address these, Dairy Farm has consolidated its trading operations into a more centralised structure with two main trading divisions, North Asia and Southeast Asia, in addition to Home Furnishings and Maxim's, which remain as standalone divisions.  Newly constituted shared functions will provide specialist support to all divisions and a strengthened and broadened leadership team has been created to meet the requirements of the business.

 

Performance in the first half saw higher sales achieved in all divisions, with the Group's underlying profit increasing slightly compared with the prior year.   

 

RESULTS

Sales of US$5.9 billion for the period by the Group's subsidiaries were 8% higher than last year, or 6% higher at constant rates of exchange.  Total sales, including 100% of associates and joint ventures, rose 17% to US$12.2 billion, primarily as a result of strong growth in Yonghui and Maxim's.  Underlying net profit was US$215 million, 2% higher than the same period last year as were underlying earnings per share at US¢15.88

 

Operating cash flow for the period was a net inflow of US$312 million, compared with US$306 million in the first half of 2017 reflecting continued improvements in working capital management.  As at 30th June 2018, the Group's net debt was higher at US$670 million compared to US$599 million at 31st December 2017, principally due to continued investment in the businesses.

 

An unchanged interim dividend of US¢6.50 per share has been declared.

 

PERFORMANCE

In North Asia, overall sales within the Food businesses were ahead of prior year, but profits declined, mainly due to higher rental and labour costs in Hong Kong.  The Health and Beauty business in Hong Kong and Macau delivered very strong sales and profit growth, driven by a significant increase in business from higher numbers of mainland Chinese tourists. 

 

In Southeast Asia, challenging trading conditions continued for the Food businesses.  The Group saw lower sales and profits in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, while in the Philippines, sales were higher but profits lower, due to increased operating costs resulting from more store openings.  Generally, these businesses have suffered from a lack of investment in infrastructure, range and competitive pricing for some time, while competition in each market has been increasing.  Turning these Food businesses around and becoming more relevant to the changing demands of customers will take significant effort.  Appropriate plans are now being put in place following the strategic review, but will require time to take effect. 

 

The improving performance of the majority of the Group's Health and Beauty businesses in Southeast Asia is encouraging, with Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam reporting better underlying results.

 

The Group's convenience store operations performed well, with Hong Kong and Macau trading in line with last year.  In Singapore, overall convenience store sales were slightly lower than last year due to the termination of a multi-site agreement, but profitability improved following the closure of some underperforming stores.  Like-for-like sales increases and store expansion in mainland China continued to underpin growth in this sector.

 

In Home Furnishings, IKEA performed ahead of last year in Taiwan and Indonesia, with sales and profits growth.  Hong Kong reported higher sales, helped by a contribution from the new store which opened in October last year, but associated higher operating costs resulted in a reduction in profits.  Progress continues to be made on new store development in both Taiwan and Indonesia, with several sites under development.  Meanwhile, e-commerce activities are showing increased results in all markets but from a small base.

 

Maxim's delivered another good performance and is continuing to expand its presence across mainland China and Southeast Asia.

 

Yonghui reported strong sales growth and underlying profits from the core food business remained strong, but total profits were behind prior year due to the investment in new technology formats and the introduction of an employee incentive scheme announced earlier this year.

 

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENTS

Given the mixed performance of businesses within the Group, plans are now being developed to build on Dairy Farm's strengths and address the challenges it faces.  Five strategic priorities have been identified: building capability, growing presence in mainland China, protecting the Group's Hong Kong business, revitalising the Southeast Asia operations and driving digital innovation.  A series of programmes are underway to support these priorities across all of the Group's businesses.

 

In March, the Group announced that it had agreed to partner with Robinsons Retail Holdings Inc. ('RRHI'), the third largest retailer in the Philippines, to build a leading food retail business in that market.  Dairy Farm will combine its Rustan Supercenters, Inc. operations with RRHI to build on the combined strengths of both businesses, creating a new platform for growth.  Following completion of the transaction, Dairy Farm would own 18.25% of RRHI.  The transaction, which is subject to certain regulatory approvals, is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter.

 

In May, Maxim's opened its first Shake Shack restaurant, an American fast casual burger-and-shake format, in Hong Kong, with encouraging initial results.

 

At 30th June, Dairy Farm, including associates and joint ventures, operated over 7,400 outlets across all formats, compared with 7,181 at 31st December 2017.

 

PEOPLE

Dr George Koo stepped down as a Director on 9th May 2018.  We would like to thank him for his significant contribution to the Company over many years.  We would also like to welcome Dr Delman Lee, who has joined the Board.

 

Several new senior executives with a wealth of retail experience from around the world have joined the Dairy Farm leadership team. 

 

OUTLOOK

The first half of the year saw strong results from North Asia, driven by the Health and Beauty business in Hong Kong and Macau, but the Southeast Asian Food businesses continued to face challenges producing a weaker overall performance.  While the outlook for the remainder of the year is expected to remain challenging for the Food businesses, particularly in Southeast Asia, the Group's other businesses should continue to make steady progress.  Significant management and structural changes have been made to address the issues the Group faces in a number of areas, but time will be needed to deliver sustainable improvement.

Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

 

 

1.    ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND BASIS OF PREPARATION

 

The condensed financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 'Interim Financial Reporting' and on a going concern basis.  The condensed financial statements have not been audited or reviewed by the Group's auditors pursuant to the UK Auditing Practices Board guidance on the review of interim financial information.

 

There are no changes to the accounting policies as described in the 2017 annual financial statements except for the adoption of IFRS 9 'Financial Instruments' and IFRS 15 'Revenue from Contracts with Customers' from 1st January 2018 as set out below. 

 

The other amendments, which are effective in 2018 and relevant to the Group's operations, do not have a significant effect on the Group's accounting policies.

 

The Group has not early adopted any standard, interpretation or amendment that have been issued but not yet effective.

 

IFRS 9 'Financial Instruments'

Under IFRS 9, the gains and losses arising from changes in fair value of the Group's investments in equity securities, previously classified as available-for-sale, will be recognised in profit and loss, instead of through other comprehensive income.  Such fair value gains or losses on revaluation of these investments are classified as non-trading items, and do not have any impact on the Group's underlying profit attributable to shareholders and shareholders' funds.  The new hedge accounting rules, which align the accounting for hedging instruments closely with the Group's risk management practices, and the new forward-looking expected credit loss model replacing the incurred loss impairment model, have no significant impact to the Group.

 

IFRS 15 'Revenue from Contracts with Customers'

IFRS 15 establishes a comprehensive framework for the recognition of revenue.  It replaces IAS 11 'Construction Contracts', and IAS 18 'Revenue' which covers contracts for goods and services.  The core principle in the framework is that revenue is recognised when control of a good or service transfers to a customer.  There is no significant impact on the new standard to the Group. 

 

Changes to accounting policies on adoption of IFRS 9 and IFRS 15 have been applied retrospectively and the comparative financial statements have been restated.

Investments

 

The Group's investments are measured at fair value through profit and loss.  The classification is based on the management's business model and their contractual cash flows characteristics.

 

Equity investments are measured at fair value with fair value gains and losses recognised in profit and loss, unless management has elected to recognise the fair value gains and losses through other comprehensive income.

 

All purchases and sales of investments are recognised on the trade date, which is the date that the Group commits to purchase or sell the investments.

 

Debtors

 

All debtors, excluding derivative financial instruments, are measured at amortised cost except where the effect of discounting would be material.  The impairment measurement is subject to whether there has been a significant increase in credit risk.  For trade debtors, the Group applied the simplified approach permitted by IFRS 9, which requires expected lifetime losses to be recognised from initial recognition of the debtors.  The carrying amount of the asset is reduced through the use of an allowance account and the amount of the loss is recognised in arriving at operating profit.  When a debtor is uncollectible, it is written off against the allowance account.  Subsequent recoveries of amount previously written off are credited to profit and loss.

 

Debtors with maturities greater than 12 months after the balance sheet date are classified under non-current assets.

 

Non-trading items

 

Non-trading items are separately identified to provide greater understanding of the Group's underlying business performance.  Items classified as non-trading items include fair value gains or losses on equity investments which are fair value through profit and loss; gains and losses arising from the sale of businesses, investments and properties; impairment of non-depreciable intangible assets and other investments; provisions for the closure of businesses; acquisition-related costs in business combinations; and other credits and charges of a non-recurring nature that require inclusion in order to provide additional insight into underlying business performance.

 

Sales recognition

 

Sales consist of the fair value of goods sold to customers, net of returns, discounts and sales related taxes.  This does not include sales generated by associates and joint ventures.  Sale of goods is recognised at the point of sale, when the control of the asset is transferred to the customers, and is recorded at the net amount received from customers.

The fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities approximate their carrying amounts.

 

Fair value estimation

 

(i)    Financial instruments that are measured at fair value

         

For financial instruments that are measured at fair value in the balance sheet, the corresponding fair value measurements are disclosed by level of the following fair value measurement hierarchy:

 

(a)  Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities ('quoted prices in active markets')

 

The fair values of listed investments are based on quoted prices in active markets at the balance sheet date.  The quoted market price used for listed investments held by the Group is the current bid price.

 

(b)  Inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly ('observable current market transactions')

 

The fair values of derivative financial instruments are determined using rates quoted by the Group's bankers at the balance sheet date.  The rates for interest rate swaps and forward foreign exchange contracts are calculated by reference to market interest rates and foreign exchange rates.

 

The fair values of unlisted investments mainly include club debentures, are determined using prices quoted by brokers at the balance sheet date.

 

(c)  Inputs for assets or liabilities that are not based on observable market data ('unobservable inputs')

 

The fair values of other unlisted investments are determined using valuation techniques by reference to observable current market transactions or the market prices of the underlying investments with certain degree of entity specific estimates, or determined with reference to the underlying cash flow from the investments, discounted using a risk-adjusted discount rate.

 

There were no changes in valuation techniques during the six months ended 30th June 2018 and the year ended 31st December 2017.
