CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

 

Overview

 

Jardine Cycle & Carriage ("JC&C" or "the Group") delivered a stable performance in 2019. Astra saw strong contributions from financial services and gold mining, but its automotive, heavy equipment and agribusiness results were impacted by relatively weak domestic consumption and low commodity prices. Truong Hai Auto Corporation ("Thaco") saw lower performance from its automotive business as a result of increased competition.  There was a higher contribution from Siam City Cement and the Group received an increased dividend from its investment in Vinamilk.

 

The Group's underlying profit attributable to shareholders for 2019 was 1% higher at US$863 million. Profit attributable to shareholders increased to US$881 million, after net non-trading gains of US$18 million.

 

Astra contributed US$716 million to the Group's underlying profit, relatively stable compared to the previous year. The underlying profit from the Group's Direct Motor Interests was 11% lower at US$63 million, while its Other Strategic Interests contributed an underlying profit of US$126 million, down 13% from the previous year.  Corporate costs were US$42 million, down from US$77 million in the previous year primarily due to a foreign exchange gain from the translation of foreign currency loans in 2019, compared to a foreign exchange loss in the previous year.

 

The Group's financial position remains strong, with shareholders' funds up 12% at US$6,860 million and net asset value per share at US$17.36 at the year end. Consolidated net debt excluding financial services companies was US$3.0 billion at 31st December 2019, representing gearing of 20%, up from 16% at the end of 2018.

 

Astra's financial services subsidiaries had net debt totalling US$3.3 billion, relatively flat compared to the end of 2018.  JC&C parent company's net debt was US$1.5 billion, compared with US$1.3 billion at the previous year end.

 

Strategic Developments

 

Astra

 

During the year a further investment of US$100 million was made in Gojek, bringing Astra's total investment to US$250 million. As part of the collaboration between Astra and Gojek, a joint venture company was formed to provide fleet management support for GoCar, a ride-hailing online transportation system in Indonesia.

 

In May 2019, Astra acquired a 44.5% stake in the 36km Surabaya-Mojokerto toll road for US$113 million. It also completed the acquisition of an additional 10% stake in the 117km Cikopo-Palimanan toll road, in November 2019, bringing its ownership to 55%.

 

In December 2019, Astra announced the sale of its 44.6% interest in Permata Bank to Bangkok Bank Public Company Limited. The divestment is in line with Astra's ongoing strategic review of its portfolio. Completion of the sale is subject to the fulfillment of certain conditions and the obtaining of necessary approvals.

 

 

Direct Motor Interests

 

Jardine Matheson has a long-term vision and commitment to strengthen its automotive businesses and ensure that they are resilient and able to address anticipated disruption in the sector.  In support of this ambition, Jardine International Motors ("JIM") was formed in 2019 to provide management and oversight across the wider Jardine Matheson Group's automotive interests, in order to effectively harness expertise and talent, increase customer focus and create economies of scale. As a result, JC&C's Direct Motor Interests are now managed by JIM while the Group maintains its full ownership of these businesses. The Chief Executive of JIM is former JC&C Chief Executive Alex Newbigging.

 

Other Strategic Interests

 

During the year, JC&C increased its interest in Thaco from 25.3% to 26.6% through subscribing to a share placement, for consideration of US$168 million. Thaco continues to diversify its business into property and agriculture, and its property interests in particular are expected to grow in importance going forward.

 

JC&C also increased its stake in Refrigeration Electrical Engineering Corporation ("REE") from 24.9% to 29.0% for US$25 million, by way of a public tender offer and market purchases.

 

Dividends

 

The Board is recommending a final one-tier tax exempt dividend of US¢69 per share (2018: US¢69 per share) which, together with the interim dividend, will produce a total dividend for the year of US¢87 per share (2018: US¢87 per share).

 

People

 

On behalf of the Board, I would like to express our appreciation to our more than 250,000 employees across the region for their continuing hard work and dedication in what remains a challenging business environment.

 

Mr Hassan Abas will be retiring as a director at the close of the upcoming Annual General Meeting in April 2020, after more than 27 years on the Board. He has also served as the Lead Independent Director, chairman of the Audit and Remuneration Committees, and as a member of the Nominating Committee for a number of years. On behalf of the Board, I would like to record our thanks for his valuable contribution to the Group.

 

Outlook 

 

In 2020, market conditions in Indonesia are expected to remain challenging and conditions generally in Southeast Asia may be impacted by COVID-19.

GROUP MANAGING DIRECTOR'S REVIEW
 

Group Review

 

The Group's structure comprises three business pillars: (i) Astra; (ii) Direct Motor Interests ("DMI"), which consists of the Group's non-Astra automotive businesses; and (iii) Other Strategic Interests, which covers a range of business interests and which now includes Thaco following its expansion beyond automotive into property and agriculture. The contribution to JC&C's underlying profit attributable to shareholders by business segments was as follows:

† The accounts have been restated due to changes in accounting policies upon adoption of IFRS 16 Leases, as set out in Note 1 to the condensed financial statements

 

 

Astra

 

Astra contributed US$716 million to JC&C's underlying profit, a stable performance compared to the previous year. Astra r eported a net profit equivalent to US$1.5 billion under Indonesian accounting standards, largely unchanged from the previous year. There were lower contributions from Astra's automotive and agribusiness divisions, which offset a higher contribution from its financial services business and gold mining operation.

 

Automotive

 

Net income from Astra's automotive division was down 1 % at US$594 million. This was mainly due to lower car sales volumes and increased manufacturing costs, partially offset by higher motorcycle sales volumes. Highlights were as follows:

 

Car sales were 8% lower at 536,000 units. The Indonesian wholesale market declined by 11% to 1.0 million units in 2019. Astra launched 15 new models and 11 revamped models during the year and increased its market share from 51% to 52%.

Motorcycle sales increased by 3% to 4.9 million units. The Indonesian wholesale market increased by 2% to 6.5 million units. Astra's market share was slightly higher at 76%. 6 new models and 21 revamped models were launched during the year.

Astra Otoparts reported a 21% increase in net income at US$52 million. This was largely due to higher revenue from the replacement market and lower production costs.

 

Financial Services

 

Net income from Astra's financial services division increased by 22% to US$415 million, mainly due to a larger loan portfolio and an improvement in non-performing loans. Highlights were as follows:

 

Consumer finance businesses saw an 8% increase in the amount financed to US$6.2 billion. The net income contribution from Astra's car-focused finance companies increased by 29% to US$106 million, with lower non-performing loan losses. The net income contribution from the group's motorcycle-focused finance business increased by 11% to US$187 million, mainly due to a larger loan portfolio.

Heavy equipment-focused finance operations saw an 18% decrease in the amounts financed to US$302 million. The net income contribution from this business grew, however, by 14% to US$7 million, as a result of lower loan provisions.

Permata Bank reported a 66% increase in net income to US$106 million, due to improved revenue and lower loan impairment levels, attributable to improved loan quality and better levels of recovery from non-performing loans. The bank's gross and net non-performing loan ratios improved to 2.8% and 1.3%, respectively, compared to 4.4% and 1.7% at the end of 2018.

General insurance company Asuransi Astra Buana reported 4% growth in net income at US$77 million, with increased investment income.

 

Heavy Equipment, Mining, Construction & Energy

 

Net income from Astra's   heavy equipment, mining, construction and energy division   increased by 1 % to US$475 million, mainly due to the contribution from the new gold mining operation, offset by the impact of lower heavy equipment sales and a loss incurred in the general contracting business . Highlights were as follows:

 

United Tractors reported a 2% increase in net income to US$801 million.

Agincourt Resources achieved gold sales of 410,000 oz.

Komatsu heavy equipment sales fell by 40% to 2,926 units, while parts and service revenues were also lower.

Mining contracting operations saw a 1% higher overburden removal volume at 989 million bank cubic metres, and 5% higher coal production at 131 million tonnes.

Coal mining subsidiaries delivered 21% higher coal sales at 8.5 million tonnes, including 1.2 million tonnes of coking coal. However, the business was impacted by lower coal prices.

General contractor Acset Indonusa reported a net loss of US$77 million, compared to a net income of US$1 million the year before. This was mainly due to increased project and funding costs for several ongoing contracts.

 

Infrastructure & Logistics

 

Net income from Astra's infrastru c ture and logistics division increased by 49% to US$21 million , mainly due to improved toll road revenue. Highlights were as follows:

 

Toll road revenue increased, with 22% higher traffic volume in Astra's 350km of operational toll roads along the Trans-Java network and Kunciran Serpong toll road. 

Serasi Autoraya's net income decreased by 17% to US$18 million, due to lower used car sales and a decline in its car leasing business.

 

Agribusiness

 

Net income from Astra's agribusiness was down 85% at US$12 million. This was primarily due to an 8% fall in average crude palm oil prices, despite a 3% increase in c rude palm oil and derivatives sales to 2.3 million tonnes. There have, however, recently been signs of improvement in prices.

 

 

Direct Motor Interests

 

Direct Motor Interests contributed US$63 million to the Group's underlying profit, 11% lower than the prior year. Highlights were as follows: 

 

C ycle & Carriage Singapore ("CCS") contributed US$57 million, 5% lower than the previous year. Its passenger car sales grew by 2% to 13,500 units, despite a 10% decrease in the overall Singapore passenger car market. This was, however, partly offset by lower margins due to stronger competitive pressure. CCS' market share increased from 17% to 19%, with the launch of new models and competitive pricing. 

In Indonesia, Tunas Ridean contributed US$19 million, 7% higher than the previous year. The stronger contribution from its automotive and consumer finance operations was partially offset by a lower contribution from its rental business.

Cycle & Carriage Bintang in Malaysia contributed a loss of US$6 million, compared to a profit of US$2 million in 2018. This was the result of vehicle sales having benefited from a period of zero GST in 2018, and the 2019 results being impacted by a one-off impairment charge in respect of a property asset.

 

 

Other Strategic Interests

 

Other Strategic Interests contributed US$126 million to the Group's underlying profit, 13% down on the previous year. Other Strategic Interests now include Thaco following its diversification into property and agriculture. Highlights were as follows:

 

Thaco's contribution of US$49 million was 34% lower than last year. The contribution of US$46 million from its automotive business was 30% down on the previous year, due to a 9% decline in Thaco's vehicle sales and lower margins. Tariffs were eliminated following the full implementation of the ASEAN Trade in Goods Agreement in 2018, which led to intense competition in the completely-built-up import segment. Thaco's real estate business contributed US$2 million, significantly lower than the US$7 million in 2018 due to the slowdown in the property market.

Siam City Cement's contribution of US$24 million was 16% higher than the previous year. Its improved domestic performance in Thailand was, however, offset by a lower contribution from its regional operations, mainly South Vietnam.

The contribution of US$18 million from REE was 4% lower than the previous year, due to weaker performances from its hydropower investments and its M&E business, which were partially offset by a stronger contribution from real estate and the effect of an increase in the Group's shareholding in 2019. 

The Group's investment in Vinamilk delivered dividend income of US$36 million, compared to US$32 million in the previous year. Vinamilk's 2019 profit was up 3% in local currency terms, with the progressive recovery of the fast-moving consumer goods sector in Vietnam.

 

 

Corporate Costs

 

Corporate costs were US$42 million, compared to US$77 million in the previous year, which has improved the underlying profit of the Group overall. This was primarily due to a foreign exchange gain from the translation of foreign currency loans in 2019 compared to a foreign exchange loss in the previous year, partly offset by higher net financing charges and overheads.

 

Summary

 

While conditions over the next year are likely to remain challenging in our key markets, the Group has a track record of delivering strong performance over time. Our portfolio of market-leading businesses, is well-placed to benefit from increasing urbanisation and the growth of the emerging consumer class in Southeast Asia.

Jardine Cycle & Carriage Limited

Notes to the financial statements for the year ended 31st December 2019

 

1  Basis of preparation

 

The financial statements are consistent with those set out in the 2018 audited accounts which have been prepared in accordance with Singapore Financial Reporting Standards (International) ("SFRS(I)") and International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). There have been no changes to the accounting policies described in the 2018 audited accounts except for the adoption of IFRS 16 Leases, which is effective from 1st January 2019.

 

The standard replaces IAS 17 'Leases' and related interpretations and introduces a comprehensive model for the identification of lease arrangements and accounting treatments for both lessors and lessees. The distinction between operating and finance leases is removed for lessee accounting, and is replaced by a model where a lease liability and a corresponding right-of-use asset have to be recognised on the balance sheet for almost all leases by the lessees. The Group's recognised right-of-use assets primarily relate to property leases, equipment and motor vehicles. Prior to 2019, payments made under operating leases were charged to profit and loss on a straight-line basis over the period of the lease. From 1st January 2019, each lease payment is allocated between settlement of the lease liability and finance cost. The finance cost is charged to profit and loss over the lease period. The right-of-use asset is depreciated over the shorter of the asset's useful life and the lease term on a straight-line basis.


In addition, leasehold land which represents payments to third parties to acquire interests in property is now presented under right-of-use assets. Leasehold land is amortised over the useful life of the lease, which includes the renewal period if the lease is likely to be renewed by the Group without significant cost.

 

The accounting for lessors does not change significantly.

 

The adoption of IFRS 16 has been accounted for retrospectively and the comparative financial statements have been restated. The adoption has resulted in a decrease in the profit attributable to shareholders for the financial year ended 31st December 2018 by US$2.0m.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise its judgment in the process of applying the Group's accounting policies.  Estimates and judgments used in preparing the financial statements are regularly evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.  The resulting accounting estimates will, by definition, seldom equal the related actual results.

 

The exchange rates used for translating assets and liabilities at the balance sheet date are US$1 = S$1.3473 (2018: US$1 = S$1.3659), US$1 = RM4.0925 (2018: US$1 = RM4.148), US$1 = IDR13,901 (2018: US$1=IDR14,481), US$1= VND23,173 (2018: US$1= VND23,175) and US$1= THB29.863 (2018: US$1=THB32.518).

 

The exchange rates used for translating the results for the period are US$1 = S$1.3635 (2018: US$1 = S$1.3499), US$1 = RM4.142 (2018: US$1 = RM4.039), US$1 = IDR14,131 (2018: US$1 = IDR14,267), US$1 = VND23,234 (2018: US$1 = VND23,044) and US$1 = THB30.938 (2018: US$1 =THB32.331).

  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 revaluation of investment properties, agricultural produce and equity investments which are measured at 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 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 the Group's underlying business performance.
