(Official Notice)
Sea Harvest is in the process of finalising its interim financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2018 which is scheduled to be released on or about 28 August 2018.



The Group's headline earnings for the six months ended 30 June 2018 are expected to increase by between 0% and 3%, to between R110.7 million and R114.0 million, compared to the headline earnings of R110.7 million reported for the six months ended 30 June 2017, after absorbing transaction costs relating to the Viking acquisition.



Shareholders are advised that the Company expects to report basic earnings per share (EPS) for the six months ended 30 June 2018 of between 46 and 50 cents per share, representing a decrease of between 31% and 25%, compared to the EPS of 67 cents per share reported for the six months ended 30 June 2017.



Basic headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the six months ended 30 June 2018 is expected to decrease by between 20% and 13%, to between 45 and 49 cents per share, compared to the HEPS of 56.6 cents per share reported for the six months ended 30 June 2017.



The decrease in EPS and HEPS is mainly attributed to an increase in the weighted average number of shares in issue (WANOS) due to the annualised effect of the shares issued at listing on 23 March 2017 being included in the WANOS calculation for only a portion of the period in 2017, compared to the full period in 2018, as well as the non-recurrence of several one-off non-cash benefits in 2017 and transaction costs relating to the Viking acquisition included in 2018. WANOS for the six months ended 30 June 2018 increased to 240 018 063, compared to a WANOS of 195 379 525 for the six months ended 30 June 2017.



The financial information on which this trading statement has been based has neither been reviewed nor audited by the Company's external auditors.

The acquisition price of AUD4.95 million will be funded through a combination of debt funding and a conditional placement to qualified institutional and sophisticated investors. Sea Harvest, being the largest shareholder of Mareterram, has committed to maintaining its 55.89% interest through a pro rata investment in the placement.

Sea Harvest released their maiden interim results. Revenue came in at R1.057 billion, gross profit was R353.5 million, operating profit before joint venture and associate profit was recorded as R181.4 million, profit for the period attributable to shareholders of Sea Harvest was R131 million, while headline earnings per share was reported as 56.6 cents per share.



Dividends

No interim dividend is declared or proposed for the six months ended 30 June 2017.



Company outlook

International demand continues to be strong for high value wild caught species such as Cape Hake and Shark Bay Prawns. The Rand has weakened compared to the average for the first half of the year and the hedges in place for the second half of the year are more favourable than the first half of the year. Local market volumes have declined as a result of a stagnant economic environment, but this is expected to be offset by continued inflation in the category due to limited supply.



Revenue from Mareterram in the second half of the year is expected to be higher than the first half of the year due to the seasonal nature of the business.



All bank debt and shareholder loans within the South African operations were settled on listing and as a result, finance costs in the second half of the year are expected to reduce considerably, unless cash on hand and available facilities are utilised to fund growth.



There is a good pipeline of organic growth projects. The Group has announced the acquisition of a new freezer trawler (M.V. Therney) from listed Icelandic Fishing Company, HB Grandi, for USD13.5 million. The M.V. Therney was built in the Sterkoder yard in Norway, and is a sister vessel to the Harvest Atlantic Peace which was acquired by Sea Harvest in 2014. Delivery of the vessel is expected in mid-November this year, at a total cost of R250 million, and is anticipated to commence fishing in April/May 2018.

Further to the listing of Sea Harvest on the JSE Ltd. on 23 March 2017, the Company is in the process of finalising its maiden interim financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2017 which is scheduled to be released on or about 23 August 2017.



Shareholders are advised that the Company expects to report earnings per share of between 62 and 69 cents and headline earnings per share of between 53 and 60 cents. As Sea Harvest was previously unlisted, no comparative information has previously been reported.



The above is based on the weighted average number of shares in issue (?WANOS?) during the six month period ended 30 June 2017 of 195 379 525. It is important to note that, amongst other movements in share capital, the Company issued 101 933 269 ordinary shares (excluding treasury shares) upon its listing on the JSE and therefore these shares were only included in the calculation of the WANOS for 99 days of the reporting period. The total number of shares in issue as at 30 June 2017 (excluding treasury shares) was 239 973 603.



The financial information on which this trading statement has been based has neither been reviewed nor audited by the Company?s external auditors.

Business Report highlighted that Brimstone's subsidiary Sea Harvest became the second fishing company to list on the JSE. Sea Harvest said it aimed to be a diversified global seafood company after it raised R1.3 billion on its debut on the JSE, giving it a market capitalisation of R3 billion. Sea Harvest chief executive Felix Ratheb said the money raised from the listing would be used to pay down debt and fund growth, both local and internationally.
