Total Nigeria : Migrates From Half-Year Loss to Profit

08/23/2021 | 12:06pm EST

Total Nigeria Plc migrated from half year 2020 loss to a profit for the half year ended June 30, 2021 following its improved revenue and cut in finance cost.

Effective management of finance cost and Impairment loss on trade receivables was Total Nigeria's profit defensive strategy to compensate for last year weak revenue.

The petroleum marketing company report for half year (H1) ended June 30, 2021 shows that the first quarter (Q1) revenue growth and finance cost reduction reflected on H1 2021 performance, forcing the management to declare interim dividend.

With positive performance in profit, the company declared interim dividend of N4.00 per ordinary 50 kobo per share. The interim dividend translates into N1.36billion payout to shareholders of the company.

From the profit & loss figures, revenue showed increasing performance as the company leveraged on hike in price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS).

Total Nigeria's revenue returned to its pre-pandemic level as it grew by 41.8 per cent to N151.33billion in H1 2021 from N106.7billion in H1 2020.

Revenue from Total Nigeria's petroleum products grew by 36.2 per cent to N114.04billion in H1 2021 from N83.74billion in H1 2020, while revenue from lubricants and others rose significantly by 62.3 per cent from N22.96billion in H1 2020 to N37.3billion in H1 2021.

Total Nigeria's revenue reported revenue showed that it remained a top pick in the oil and gas downstream sphere, given its robust distribution network (over 560 outlets major marketers' outlets).

As evidenced so far in H1 2021, Total Nigeria has leveraged its scale in making up for the pandemic-induced slump in earnings in 2020 financial year.

The growth was driven by a solid performance across the business' three segments - Network (+43.1per cent; 71 per cent of revenue), General Trade (+305 per cent; 24 per cent of revenue) and Aviation (+893.2 per cent; five per cent of revenue).

Increase in Demand

The increase across the business lines can be attributable to increase in demand given that the economy has effectively reopened, higher PMS prices (Average price: N167.18/litre in H12021 vs N137.60/litre in H1 2020) relative to Q2-20 and H1 2020, and the company's ability to substantially push out volumes given its vast storage and distribution channels. Also, cost of sales rose by 33.43 per cent to N125.83 billion in H1 2021 from N94.3 billion in H1 2020.

Consequently, the proportion of cost of sales/Revenue dropped to 83.15per cent in H1 2021 from 88.2 per cent in H1 2020.

Other income also grew by 217.4 per cent to N2.47billion in H1 2021 from N779.4million reported in H1 2020, attributable to N1.26billion network income in H1 2021 from N763.4million in H1 2020.

About 191.54 per cent increase in Gain on disposal of property, plant and equipment to N46.8million in H1 2021 from N16.05million in H1 2020 also contributed to growth in other income of Total Nigeria.

In the period, the company also reported N184million and N986.43million Gain on disposal of raw material and Net foreign exchange gain respectively, other two factors that contributed to other income.

The company in prior half year reported N241.7 million Net foreign exchange loss amid the instability foreign exchange due to dwindling global oil prices and the loss was not reported in the current half year.

Selling & distribution costs rose Selling & distribution costs rose by nearly four per cent to N1.61billion in H1 2021 from N1.67billion reported in H1 2020, while administrative expenses rose by 16.3 per cent to 13.78billion in H1 2021 from N11.85billion in H1 2020.

Analysts review

Commenting, analysts at Cordros securities said they remain optimistic for second half year performance of Total Nigeria.

They said, "As the economy has effectively reopened, we believe demand for petroleum products in the year will return to pre-pandemic levels. As such, we forecast 33.6per cent revenue growth in 2021FY. Over the medium term (2022-2025FY), we model average annual revenue growth of 10.5% per cent, given our expectation that Total Nigeria will sustain its volume expansion drive.

"We estimate gross margin will decline by 200bps to 13 per cent in 2021E, given (1) the pass-through impact of the rise in crude oil prices on costs of production and (2) inflationary pressures due to structural inefficiencies and currency weakness. However, we expect the topline growth to support EBITDA and EBITDA margin and cushion the pressure from higher operating expenses.

"Thus, we project 2021E EBITDA and accompanying margin will increase by 64.3 per cent and 113bps, respectively. We forecast EPS of N18.56 in 2021E, implying growth of 205.4 per cent y/y compared to the decline in 2020FY (-9.5 per cent y/y). Further out, we forecast an EPS CAGR of 10.6% in 2021-2025FY. Our EPS forecast aligns with Bloomberg consensus estimate of N18.00 in 2021FY."
