Orica Limited : - Changes to FY20 results release and AGM dates, FY20 expected significant items and results

10/13/2020 | 11:11am EST

Melbourne - Orica (ASX: ORI) today provided the following update to the Australian Securities Exchange.

Changes to full year results release and AGM dates

The final, and most significant, phase of Orica's new single enterprise resource planning (SAP) system ('the system') went live in July 2020, in the midst of the pandemic. The COVID-19 related challenges, where training and support has had to be provided remotely, led to some delays which has resulted in a decision to defer the reporting of the full year result by two weeks.

Orica Chief Executive Alberto Calderon said: 'The deployment of SAP is a historic, and game-changing, milestone for Orica.

'The underlying business has transitioned without major disruption and is running on SAP today. Our manufacturing operations have continued uninterrupted, and we now have clear visibility on sales and billing. The system is already delivering material operational insights and efficiencies and helping improve product security and customer outcomes.

'Nevertheless, due to delays caused by COVID-19 quarantine and the impact this has on closing accounts and auditing them, we have decided it is prudent to defer our financial results release by two weeks.

'We look forward to presenting our results next month and giving an update on our strategic agenda to improve performance, extend our position as manufacturing and technology market leaders and drive further value for our shareholders.

'Based on our early indications, we expect underlying EBIT for this financial year to be slightly above $600 million.'

FY20 expected significant items

Over the past few years, Orica has implemented several efficiency improvement initiatives to simplify, streamline and standardise end to end processes globally. As a result of these initiatives now being embedded across the business, Orica expects to recognise approximately $170 million (pre-tax) of costs comprising $105 million in non-cash costs and $65 million in cash costs in its FY20 consolidated results. The post-tax effect is expected to be approximately $130 million.

FY20 expected results

At the half year results on 8 May 2020, Orica provided a full year outlook based on its view of mining activity at that time, stating that the company expected Ammonium Nitrate (AN) volumes for the second half of FY20 to be 10 to 15 per cent below the expected pre-COVID-19 volumes.

Due to the pandemic impacting developing markets more severely for longer, AN volumes for the second half of FY20 are now expected to be close to 15 per cent below the expected pre-COVID-19 volumes. Higher supply chain costs, largely freight, continue to impact the business as we support customers' operations during the pandemic.

The Company expects FY20 underlying EBIT to be slightly above $600 million
