To increase liquidity and boost the value (the psychological effect), Indonesia-based Mayora Indah will conduct a 25-for-1 stock split. In combination with expected long-term net profit growth due to its fundamental strengths, the future looks bright for the food manufacturer. The company's shares touched IDR 39,000 a piece this week and are therefore perceived as expensive. After the stock split more retail investors are expected to collect Mayora Indah's shares despite the true value remaining unchanged.
CIMB Securities expects to see a 14 percent (y/y) growth in Mayora Indah's sales to IDR 16.9 trillion (approx. USD $1.3 billion) in 2016 supported by an improving Indonesian economy (giving rise to strengthening purchasing power) and the positive impact of the tax amnesty program. Meanwhile, the company's net profit is forecast to rise 7 percent (y/y) to IDR 1.2 trillion (approx. USD $92 million) this year.
So far this year, corporate earnings of Mayora Indah have been impressive. In the first quarter of 2016, the company's net profit surged a whopping 84 percent (y/y) to IDR 392 billion, supported by jumping revenue (IDR 4.68 trillion in Q1-2016) and the company's higher profit margin. One of the factors that caused the higher profit margin is that the company can still benefit from the low commodity prices. Another positive matter is that Indonesia finally managed to get inflation under control. According to the latest data from Statistics Indonesia, inflation eased to 3.33 percent (y/y) in May 2016.
