Fonterra Ord Unit-FTA Agreement Might Support Further Growth

FTA agreement might support further growth: FONTERRA ORD UNIT (ASX: FSF) stock fell over 2.12% during this year to date (as of December 18, 2015), as the group’s FY15 performance was impacted by lower milk prices and thus hurt its top line by 15% year on year (yoy) to $18.8 billion. On the other hand, FSF focused on operating efficiency and volumes to offset this pressure, and accordingly delivered an EBIT and NPAT rise of 94% yoy and 183% yoy, respectively. On the other hand, the recent free trade agreements with China, Japan, and Korea would drive demand for the group’s products in the long term. As a result, FSF Australia is investing over NZ$141 million for developing a state-of-the-art cheese plant at its Stanhope factory, which would replace its hard cheese plant as the group is positioning itself to leverage the demand. The group is offloading its non-core business and recently agreed to sell its 50% stake at DairiConcepts for NZD 196 million. FSF is also expanding its Anmum infant formula brand to further penetrate into China via Beingmate distribution and sales network as well as partnered with Trans Pacific. As per the recent updates, FSF plans to enter into a five year agreement with Bellamy’s Australia Ltd to manufacture a new range of baby nutritional powders. FSF also stated that dairy exports have remained strong for Australia. The company intends to sell Australian yoghurt dairy desserts business to Parmalat Australia Pty Ltd.
