value88 Kawan's earnings is lower YoY but higher QoQ in Q2.
From the quarterly report, i can see several positive signs as follows :
i) The revenue achieved in this quarter is the record highest since listing.
ii) The gross profit margin has improved QoQ.
iii) Management is positive on the growing sales demand in domestic and export market, especially China.
iv) Kawan won the Product Innovation 2019 Award.

I can see Kawan's performance should get better in quarters to come. It just need time to generate higher sales revenue and achieve higher capacity utilisation in order to offset the higher depreciation and higher operating cost from new plant.
I am almost certain that next quarter's earnings will see further improvement QoQ.

RainT KAWAN case is similar with SCGM

value88 For a company with new plant/capacity, it is important to see if its sales revenue has been increasing. If yes, this means the additional capacity is gradually taken up, and soon or later, the earning performance will improve when utilisation rate is high enough to offset the higher depreciation and operating cost resulted from the new plant.
We can see the above is happening to Kawan as it achieved the record highest revenue since listing. This substantiates the new capacity expansion is serving its purpose.

The opposite example is TomyPak. After its new plant commenced operation, its sales revenue is even lower than before installing the new capacity. We should ask a question why then TomyPak wanted to do expansion then if it doesn't help to sell more products but the opposite.

Fabien "The Efficient Capital Allocater" 200mil revenue company. sales growing every year interrupted. china sales growing double digit.

business is resilient

ample of production capacity to absorb growing demand. sales in expansionary mode

profit margin temporarily squeezed due to high depreciation charges.

intensify cost optimisation and automation to mitigate potential escalating cost and further enhance profit margin

new products to meet growing demands

moving forward, capex is reducing. more free cash flows to support dividend payment. recent quarter positive FCF

14/11/2019 3:35 PM
factslim1 We had earlier forecast a 30% revenue growth for Kawan Food Bhd for the financial year ending 2019 (FY19), mainly driven by the launch of new major bread products in the first half of 2019, a strong US dollar against the ringgit, and an organic growth in export markets
14/11/2019 3:53 PM
TrueInvestor90 where you read that factslim1?

26/11/2019 4:23 PM
RainT profit drop

capacity over than demand

high depreciation due to expansion

next qtr will be good ? lets see
27/11/2019 9:39 AM
shpg22 Believe the new factory utilisation rate is still low. It will pick up as revenue is still keep on growing. Once utilisation rate exceed its depreciation rate, its when magic happens.
27/11/2019 2:10 PM
Fabien "The Efficient Capital Allocater" i still believe earnings recovery are imminent

i have sold mine at 1.65 yesterday

will look to re-enter again
27/11/2019 2:12 PM
shpg22 I ll only concern if the revenue stagnant or drop. As long as revenue keep growing, profit growth is imminent.
27/11/2019 3:21 PM
Think May need to wait for a few quarters to see the recovery. Need to factor in opportunity cost if were to enter this counter.
Heavily impacted by hike in labor cost and operating expenses. Hope to see more automation to bring down the operating cost.
