Felda Global Ventures Holdings Berhad (FGVH) is an agricultural and agri-commodities company with operations across 10 countries. The Company operates in three segments: plantations business, downstream and sugar business. The Company has approximately 355,864 hectares of plantation estates. In its rubber plantation operations, it cultivates and harvests cup lumps on 10,308 hectares of rubber plantations. In its downstream business, the Company produces soybean and canola products through its subsidiary, Twin Rivers Technologies Enterprises de Transformation de Graines Oleagineuses du Quebec Inc (TRT-ETGO Inc), in Quebec, Canada, and produces oleochemicals through its subsidiary, Twin Rivers Technologies US Inc (TRT US), in Massachusetts, United States. Through its subsidiary, MSM Holdings, it produces a range of refined sugar products for both the commercial and retail sectors. In September 2012, it acquired Rias Simfoni Sdn. Bhd.
RingHONG Leong Investment Bank (HLIB) has maintained its “neutral” stance on the plantation sector with its top pick being Genting Plantation Bhd, of which it has rated a buy at RM12.16 a share.
RingFGV reorganised its operations last week into six clusters comprising upstream, downstream, sugar, rubber, research and development and transport, logistics, marketing and others as part of its efforts to become one of the world’s top agribusiness firms.
“In terms of social stability and poverty eradication, palm oil is the most efficient oil in the market and we want to play a role in supplying it,” said Abdul Halim.
He added that a hectare of oil palm can produce five tonnes of oil a year, compared to soyabean which can only produce half a tonne a year and requires more land.
........I call upon d CEO to commit not on d oil it can produce/ha but d yield/ha per annum. Currently now it is below 20mt n with d new clones can felda produce more then 25mt which will be more then 5mt. We shareholders want some precise statements...!
for 5 tonnes oil per hectare (@ OER rate of between 20-23%) implies 22-25 tonnes FFB /ha and their website and annual report seems pretty coy on giving a full breakdown in plantation statistics ie mature,immature.own and settlers ffb oil and kernel;and oer.Compare FGV and wilmar's briefing here:http://media.corporate-ir.net/media_files/IROL/16/164878/Briefing%20Presentation_1Q2014%20results_8May14-2.pdf
Thought those will be the points most plantations want to brag about!!
RingWith clones should be 23% OER or higher n ffb should be either 25 mt ffb or higher. Let me tell you way back in d early seventies we use to get 24% OER with DxP material n with d same material when I was posted to Sarawak near Batu Niah OER was 24-25% it was unbelievable.Now companies using media to promote their company so they got to be precise. Of course all want to plant clones now, so should be talking about about higher OER n yield...n companies should commit n what kind of dividend they can pay. Why KLK n UP paying dividend anything from 80-100% n look at their shares above 25 n why FGV inferior.
joerakmoyou are right.That speech is more a political speech ie 'waffling'.FGV should focus more on yields and efficiencies first.Interestingly Wilmar has just slightly larger mature(10000+ha) Hectarage than FGV
