*   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 interim dividend of US¢5.00 per share will be payable on 14th October 2020 to shareholders on the register of members at the close of business on 21st August 2020.

 

 

 

DAIRY FARM INTERNATIONAL HOLDINGS LIMITED

HALF-YEARLY RESULTS FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30TH JUNE 2020

 

OVERVIEW

The Group's overall profits were significantly lower in the period due to reduced contributions from Health and Beauty, Maxim's and Convenience Stores as a result of COVID-19 and restrictions imposed by governments to contain it, as well as the impact of the pandemic on customer behaviours.  There were, however, strong performances from the Grocery Retail and Home Furnishings businesses. 

 

RESULTS

Combined sales, including 100% of associates and joint ventures, rose by 6% to US$14.5 billion, due to higher contributions from Robinsons Retail and Yonghui.

 

Sales by the Group's subsidiaries in the first half reduced by 9%, primarily due to the annualised impact of the stores closures in 2019 under the Group's space optimisation plan in Southeast Asia, as well as reduced revenues from Convenience Stores and Health and Beauty as a result of pandemic-related restrictions.

 

Within the Group's subsidiaries, the Grocery Retail and Home Furnishings businesses saw improved profits, which were offset by reduced profitability for the Health and Beauty and Convenience Stores businesses.  Underlying profit for subsidiaries in the period was US$101 million, compared to US$105 million in the same period last year.

 

The contribution to underlying profit by the Group's associates and joint ventures fell significantly primarily due to the underperformance of Maxim's in the period.  Consequently, the total underlying profit for the Group was US$105 million, a 40% reduction from the US$177 million recorded in the same period last year.

 

The benefits of the Group's transformation plan, including cost improvement programmes, stronger retail execution and improved ways of working, together with the diversity of the Group's business portfolio, supported the performance of the Group's subsidiaries, despite the significant challenges faced as a result of the pandemic. 

 

Operating cash flow, after lease payments, for the period was a net inflow of US$76 million, compared with US$273 million in the first half of 2019.  As at 30th June 2020, the Group's net debt was US$1,091 million, compared with US$821 million at 31st December 2019.  The Group's financial position remains robust and at 30th June 2020 it had access to US$756 million of liquidity, consisting of US$275 million of cash reserves and US$481 million of unused, committed debt facilities.  An interim dividend of US¢5.00 per share has been declared, 23% lower than the 2019 interim dividend.

 

OPERATING PERFORMANCE

The Group's Grocery Retail business reported strong like-for-like sales and strong profit growth during the period.  The strong performance was underpinned by the ongoing execution of the Group's transformation plan and improvement programmes, as well as changing customer behaviours as a result of the pandemic.

 

Grocery Retail in Singapore and Malaysia maintained its strong turnaround momentum as the execution of improvement programmes and the Group's space optimisation plan both made a positive contribution.  The performance of new upscale formats and refreshed stores in Southeast Asia was also encouraging.  Market conditions in Indonesia remain challenging.

 

The Group's Convenience Stores business was impacted in the first half by movement restrictions and physical distancing requirements, as well as temporary store closures on the Chinese mainland and reduced customer numbers in Hong Kong and Singapore.  Performance, however, improved over the course of the first half in Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland in particular, as various lockdown restrictions eased.  Recovery in Singapore has lagged behind North Asia.

 

The Health and Beauty business was impacted significantly by the pandemic and the various restrictions to contain it.  Within North Asia, the performance of Mannings was materially affected by a continuing lack of overseas tourist custom in Hong Kong, despite the business seeing an initial surge in demand for personal protection equipment.  In Southeast Asia, the business performed well in the first quarter but was then impacted as social distancing requirements began to take effect towards the end of the first quarter. 

 

Sales in the Home Furnishings business were higher than the equivalent period last year, as strong e-commerce growth and the annualised impact of new stores opened in the prior year more than compensated for the impact on customer visits of pandemic-related restrictions, including temporary store closures.  Profitability grew strongly due to the contribution from new stores, enhancements in margin mix and lower cost of goods. 

 

Maxim's, the Group's 50%-owned associate, was significantly affected by a substantial reduction in restaurant customers and some temporary closures of its outlets.  The business reported a loss for the period.  Performance has progressively improved over the course of the second quarter, in line with the easing of social distancing restrictions, but any return of restrictions which reduce customer levels or require further closures of its outlets will impact future performance.

 

Yonghui reported strong sales and underlying profit growth in the first quarter of 2020, but has not yet released its half year results.  Robinsons Retail reported strong growth in profitability in the first quarter.  Second quarter results will be included in the Group's results for the second half.

 

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENTS

The Group announced in June that it had entered into an agreement to sell Wellcome Taiwan to Carrefour.  Completion of this transaction is expected to take place later in 2020, after the appropriate regulatory approvals have been granted. 

 

The launch of Yuu, expected to become Hong Kong's largest loyalty programme, at the end of July 2020 represents a critical milestone in driving Dairy Farm's modernisation and digital transformation.  Yuu will support a more customer-centric approach across all the Dairy Farm banners and drive an enhanced level of customer engagement.

 

During the period, Dairy Farm also launched Meadows, its new own-brand offering.  Over 300 items have already been launched across banners and markets at lower prices.  The future growth of own-brand will allow the Group to leverage scale and gain competitive advantage.

 

IKEA opened its first store in Macau during the period and opened a larger replacement store in Taoyuan, Taiwan in July.

 

PEOPLE

Given the extraordinary operating circumstances, we would like to express our deep gratitude for the continuing dedication and resolve of our team members in putting our customers first during these difficult times. 

 

Support from governments in a number of our key markets has helped maintain employment.

 

We were pleased to welcome Clive Schlee as a Non-executive Director of the Company with effect from 6th May 2020.  I stepped down as Managing Director on 15th June 2020 and was succeeded by John Witt.  I will continue as Chairman.

 

OUTLOOK

The pandemic and measures to contain it continue to create uncertainty and volatility.  Trading conditions in the second half are expected to continue to be challenging.  With a strong balance sheet and funding position, we are confident in the strength of Dairy Farm's businesses and remain committed to its multi-year transformation plan, which is delivering sustainable improvements to the business over time, and its continuing pursuit of the strategic initiatives which will drive medium- to long-term growth.

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.

 

The Group had early adopted the 'Interest Rate Benchmark Reform:  Amendments to IFRS 9, IAS 39 and IFRS 7' (effective 1st January 2020) for the Group's annual reporting period commencing 1st January 2019.

 

There are no changes to the accounting policies as described in the 2019 annual financial statements other than the following changes in relation to rent concessions and government grants.  Other amendments, which are effective in 2020 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 other standard or amendments that have been issued but not yet effective.

 

COVID-19 Related Rent Concessions: Amendment to IFRS 16 'Leases'

 

The Group has early adopted the Amendment, which is effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1st June 2020, for the Group's annual reporting period commencing 1st January 2020.  Where the Group is a lessee, the practical expedient is applied to account for the change in lease payments resulting from rent concessions granted as a direct consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic and elects not to assess these concessions as lease modifications when all of the following conditions are met:

 

(i)  the revised lease payments are substantially the same as, or less than, the consideration for the lease immediately preceding the change;

(ii)  reduction in lease payments relates to payment due on or before 30th June 2021; and

(iii)  there is no substantive change to the other terms and conditions of the lease.

 

Rent concessions fulfilling the above conditions are recognised in the profit and loss over the period in which they cover.

 

Government grants

 

Grants from government are recognised at their fair values where there is reasonable assurance that the grants will be received, and the Group will comply with the conditions associated with the grants.

 

Grants that compensate the Group for expenses incurred are recognised in the profit and loss as other operating income on a systematic basis in the period in which the expenses are recognised. Unconditional grants are recognised in the profit and loss as other operating income when they become receivable.

 

Grants related to assets are deducted in arriving at the carrying value of the related assets.

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 securities are based on quoted prices in active markets at the balance sheet date.

 

(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 equity 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 equity 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 discounted cash flow by projecting the cash inflow from these investments.

 

There were no changes in valuation techniques during the six months ended 30th June 2020 and the year ended 31st December 2019.

 

 

The table below analyses financial instruments carried at fair value at 30th June 2020 and 31st December 2019, measured by observable current market transactions.

(ii)  Financial instruments that are not measured at fair value

 

The fair values of current debtors, cash and bank balances, current creditors, current borrowings and current lease liabilities are assumed to approximate their carrying amounts due to the short-term maturities of these assets and liabilities.

 

The fair values of long-term borrowings and non-current lease liabilities are based on market prices or are estimated using the expected future payments discounted at market interest rates.

Under the terms of a Management Services Agreement, the management fee payable by the Group was US$0.6 million (2019: US$0.9 million) for the first six months of 2020 to Jardine Matheson Limited ('JML'), a wholly-owned subsidiary of JMH, based on 0.5% of the Group's profit attributable to shareholders in consideration for certain management consultancy services provided by JML.  The Group also paid directors' fees of US$0.4 million (2019: US$0.4 million) to JML for the same period in 2020.

 

The Group rents properties from Hongkong Land Holdings Limited ('HKL'), a subsidiary of JMH.  The lease payments paid by the Group to HKL for the first six months of 2020 were US$1.6 million (2019: US$1.7 million).  The Group's 50%-owned associate, Maxim's Caterers Limited ('Maxim's'), also paid lease payments of US$5.2 million (2019: US$7.0 million) to HKL for the first six months of 2020.

There were no other related party transactions that might be considered to have a material effect on the financial position or performance of the Group that were entered into or changed during the first six months of the current financial year.
