Positives:

  • Capacity expansion from 200k litres/day from 600k litres/day, likely to be announced on Jan 28th.
  • Diversified and decent brand product mix including:
    • Tea whitner
    • Dairy drink
    • UHT milk
    • Pasturised milk
    • Juice
    • Flavoured milk
    • Butter
    • Cheese
    • Others
  • GP margins at 7% (compared to Efoods at 25%), which are likely to increase as new plant comes online and installation of power plant by next year.
  • Army will be a major buyer of FFL milk (1mn Army personnel and if consume 500ml milk daily should make 500k litres/day)
  • 2016 loss was on the back of increased distribution cost (PKR 1.1bn representing PKR 7rs loss otherwise company would have breakeven). This revamping should result in increased sales.
  • Very cheap valuations compared to Efoods (which is only milk compared to FFL with diversified product range)

  • Revamp of old products like Nurpur Butter and Milk powder in the medium term that will be an upside risk to our earnings estimates.
  • Packaged milk market share constitutes 12-13%, so huge potential for the whole milk market. Parallel efforts by Ministry of Health and packaged milk manufacturers to increase awareness about packaged milk will result in significant increase in conversion rate from loose milk to packaged milk like Egypt.
