Bowler Plastics continues to focus on niche market growth with its focus on technology solutions and operational cost optimisations.

The profit on the sale was included in discontinued operations in 2015.

Dividend

Prospects

While the SoftBev business continues its focus on establishing and entrenching its national profile by implementing its strategies in commanding significant ?share of throat? for its wide range of offerings, the Bowler Group?s primary focus is directed to its Plastics packaging operations. The FMCG market is experiencing a period of significant realignment and recapitalisation of the manufacturing capabilities and within this context the next months will continue to see the implementation of long term projects by Bowler Plastics. The devaluation of the Rand is likely to strongly influence further opportunities, as the aftermath effects are being felt at retailer level. This is resulting in a reassessment of the overall supply chain which should favour South African manufacture.

18-Mar-2016
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that the company?s interim financial results for the six months to 31 December 2015 are expected to show an improvement when compared to the previous corresponding period. The improvement is, however, tempered by a CGT rate change on a transaction relating to discontinued operations arising from the disposal of Quality Beverages in the prior year and thus the total Earnings per share will be within the 20% range.



Earnings per share (?EPS?) from Continuing Operations is expected to be between 52.4 and 56.1 cents per share, being between 40% and 50% higher compared to the previous period of 37.4 cents per share. The total EPS is, however, expected to be between 44.2 and 48.2 cents per share, reflecting a range 10% to 20% higher than the previous period of 40.15 cents per share.



Headline earnings per share (?HEPS?) from Continuing Operations is expected to be between 52.6 and 56.4 cents per share, being between 40% and 50% higher compared to the previous period of 37.6 cents per share. The range for total basic and diluted HEPS is, however, expected to be between 52.4 and 56.4 cents per share, being 30% to 40% higher than the 40.3 cents per share for the prior period.

Prospects

The current state of the rigid plastic packaging landscape bodes well for Bowler Metcalf. The execution of this opportunity falls squarely on my management team, who have already displayed resilience, determination and ability. I have no reason to believe that they would not continue so to do. While SoftBev is now an associated company and will be reported as such, Bowler Metcalf is intimately involved in the strategy and leadership of this exciting opportunity. The incumbent executive team of SoftBev have demonstrated extremely strong professionalism, expertise and, in particular, urgency in managing massive changes in the dynamics of their business in a very short space of time. I have every reason to believe that they are very well placed to continue the success story of SoftBev.

(C)
Revenue from continuing operations for the interim period rose by 14% to R240.8 million (R211 million). Profit from operations increased to R37.4 million (R33.9 million), while profit attributable to the parent rose by 11% to R33.1 million (R29.9 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share from continuing operations grew to 37.72cps (34.16cps).



Dividend

An interim gross cash dividend of 18.4 cents per share ("cps") (2013: 18.4 cps) has been declared for the six months ended 31 December 2014.



Prospects

In a disturbed period characterised by industry wide labour unrests, forex uncertainties, raw materialspeak pricing and load shedding, the Group has produced a very pleasing 14% revenue growth on the previous comparative period. Equally gratifying, this growth has reflected in the earnings increase of 13% and 11% in HEPS. Overall the operational costs showed a marginal increase which was offset by the economies of scale in both businesses. As the strategies of both the plastics packaging and beverages business?s require significant capital commitments, the directors have left the interim dividend unchanged.

Revenue for the year ended 30 June 2014 increased to R726.3 million (2013: R650.4 million). Profit from operations rose to R75.3 million (2013: R69.9 million), while profit attributable to the parent increased to R60.2 million (2013: R54.9 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share rose to 74.87cps (2013: 67.50cps).



Dividend

A final gross cash dividend, as defined by the Income Tax Act, of 16.6 cents per share ("cps") for the year ended 30 June 2014 (2013: 15.8 cps) has been declared.



Prospects

Following a sustained period of trading under a cautionary announcement, the Board was delighted to announce on Friday 26th September 2014 the successful conclusion to negotiations with MIF Holdings Proprietary Limited, the parent of Shoreline Sales and Distribution Proprietary Limited (SL), for the disposal of 100% of Quality Beverages (QB), simultaneously with that of SL, into a new national beverage company called SoftBev, to be settled by shares in SoftBev.



QB has run its course under its current structure and day to day demands are eroding the focus of key Bowler Plastics personnel, to the detriment of the plastics packaging business. SL runs a remarkably parallel operation to QB, primarily in the KZN, an area where QB is not active. Should the deal be approved by the Bowler Metcalf shareholders and the Competition Commission, SoftBev will be one of the largest independent locally owned soft drink company in South Africa. It will have a nationwide representation both in terms of bottling facilities and consumer foot prints with commensurate benefits, once the usual formalities have been attended to and the company is combined. Bowler Metcalf will retain a strategic shareholding in the new combined entity.



Bowler Plastics will have the unfettered chance to build on its expertise and well-earned reputation as the pre-eminent specialist rigid plastic packaging company in South Africa. With more focused management time, coupled with the exciting projects in development, I have every reason to believe that this will be achieved quite rapidly.

Profit from operations dropped to R38.4 million (2012: R45.8 million), while profit attributable to the parent weakened by 14% to R29.9 million (2012: R35 million).

Dividend

An interim gross cash dividend of 18.4cps (2012: 17.5cps) has been declared for the six months ended 31 December 2013.



Prospects

The Group revenue at the half-year mark produced a gratifying increase of 11% on the previous comparative period. Earnings were however adversely affected by unavoidable financial pressures which have been brought to bear in the manufacturing industries in South Africa during the period and an unavoidable decrease in earnings of 14% was recorded. Notwithstanding this decrease, the fundamentals of the Group remain robust and the Directors believe that the pressures that have been brought to bear on most companies serving the FMCG market are showing gratifying signs of ameliorating. The Group is actively extracting earnings enhancements from the improvements in market conditions.

5.3% growth in attributable income to R49.3 million was achieved, despite the poor performance of Quality Beverages, which took 10.3% off the bottom-line. Adjusted for the discontinuation of Amcos, revenue increased by 8% to R406 million, confirming that the FMCG market is less susceptible to high interest rates or credit restrictions. R8.2 million cash was generated after capital purchases of R30 million, a R2.5 million increase in paid dividends and a share buyback spend of R16.1 million (representing 4.4% of issue shares). NAV per share increased to 315c (457c on estimated market values of properties). The 13.7% increase in paid dividends to 19.45c yields 4.6% on the year end share price. A final dividend of 9.3c per share has been declared .

Bowler declared their interim results for the six months ending 31 December 2007 with an increased revenue from continuing operation of R216.0m (2006: R193.9m). Net profit for the year amounted to R26.5m (2006: R24.6m) resulting in HEPS of 30.01cps (2006: 28.77cps). Operating cash flow, buoyed by the sale of Amcos in July, was up R14m (253%) allowing a 10% increase in dividends.



Dividends

An interim dividend of 10.0c per share has been declared (31/12/06: 9.10c) and is payable to shareholders on Monday, 7 April 2008.
03 Mar 2006 16:37:34
(C)
A 13% increase in group earnings was satisfactory, given the trading climate and the reduced performance of subsidiaries. The 24% rise in revenue was on budget and accurately reflects the greater group critical mass. Gearing marginally increased to 34% to take advantage of the low interest environment and R28m was invested in group activities, primarily to finance the additional assets of the subsidiaries.



Bowler Plastics maintained their solid performance, recording a 16% earnings rise, despite the continued margin squeeze caused by high raw material prices and the resistance of customers to accept price increases. These price increases were settled at year-end and this augers well for the second half of the year. Factory output at Quality Beverages was at record levels but unfortunately, the wet and windy summer weather reduced demand for carbonated soft drinks and the inevitable price reductions followed. This radically reduced margins, resulting in Quality Beverages recording a drop in earnings of 35%. Thankfully, price relief came in mid January 2006 and the second six months is likely to be stronger than the first.



Amcos Cosmetics operated from their new factory for the six months and increased their revenue by a commendable 220%. However, the associated commissioning costs and bedding in of the new plant meant that they achieved no more than a near breakeven situation. This was budgeted for and an improved second half is anticipated.



Group results for the full year are expected to be stranger than for the first half, provided that that electricity outages in the Western Cape are contained.

An interim dividend of 8.8c per share has been declared and is payable to shareholders on Monday, 3 April 2006. The last day to trade will be Friday, 24 March 2006. "Ex" dividend trading begins on Monday, 27 March 2006 and the record date will be Friday, 31 March 2006.
12 Sep 2005 08:50:50
(C)
The audited figures for the different periods are not comparable because of a change of year end in the previous period. Revenue was reported at R352 482 000 (R366 662 000) and attributable profit came down to R43 725 000 (R50 760 000). Headline Earnings per share decreased to 51cps (59cps).



Prospects

The new 7500m2 Amcos factory became operational in June and is already running at a high capacity. Quality Beverages is increasing its footprint in the Gauteng area while initiating a pilot foray into the Eastern Cape. Bowler Plastics will be expanding its PET facility in Johannesburg during 2006. All divisions of the group are well positioned for the opportunities in the forthcoming year.
