Expecting a better 2Q22
• 1Q22 net profit boosted by one-off gains
• Expecting better crushing margins in 2Q22
• Navigating through short-term challenges
Wilmar’s 1Q22 revenue rose 23.2% year-on-year (YoY) to USD17.6b while net profit was up 17.8% YoY to USD530.3m, driven by strong contributions from the Plantation and Sugar Milling segment, and an exceptional gain of USD175.6m on dilution of interest in Adani Wilmar Limited (AWL). Management mentioned that Wilmar’s contributions from Russian and Ukraine joint ventures (JVs) are not material.
As commodity prices were pushed higher due to Russia-Ukraine tension, this could benefit Wilmar’s Plantation and Sugar Milling segment. However, high commodity prices are also expected to weigh on Food Products segment’s margin due to higher raw material costs. Pertaining to the ban on palm oil export by the Indonesian government from 28 April 2022, management expects the ban to be temporary given ample supply of production vs domestic demand. As such, the impact of the export ban on Wilmar’s tropical oils operations in Indonesia is likely to be limited. We revise our estimates and lower our fair value estimate from SGD5.95 to SGD5.61.
