Better sales in Q2 22 but with softer margins
In Q2 22 SABAF reported a mixed set of number with better revenues and softer margins. The company has started to apply IAS-29 in Turkey as the country is hyperinflationary. Net of this IAS effect (not yet included in our Q2 numbers), SABAF reported higher revenue growth (we estimate up in the LSD region) in the quarter with pricing being the main driver. By region, we saw a strong performance in the US coupled with stable EU, more than compensating

Stable volumes in Q1 22 with cost inflation weighing on margins
SABAF posted a set of results overall in line with estimates confirming FY22 outlook.

We remind that the comparison base was challenging as Q1 21 benefitted from lower raw m
4Q21 results impacted by higher energy costs and non-cash FX items
In Q4 21 SABAF posted c.5% organic growth with pricing being the main driver of the top-line performance. EBITDA was down c.30% in the quarter and it was the result of tough comparison base (100% YoY growth in 4Q 20) and EUR 2m of energy cost headwind which was not factored in our numbers. However, operating profit is in line with our expectation due to lower DandA. Q4 bottom-line contribution (of EUR 0.6m) was negligible as net

Today’s trading update for H1 22 highlights the difficult operating environment over the first six months of the year, particularly in Q1. Trading picked up in Q2 and is expected to continue to improve in H2 22, in part, due to the inherent seasonality of the business, but also due to some catch up in demand. Guidance is for FY22 post-tax profit to be in line with the consensus estimate of £32.2m, as a result Zeus reduces its estimate by 2.5% to £32.2m. Previous guidance of £3.0m potential impac

Last week, the UK government published the consultation paper on its Review of Electricity Market Arrangements (REMA). Any change potentially represents uncertainty in a market that has been wary of changes with a number of shares falling after early details of possible reforms were flagged in the press. We review the possible changes and conclude that while there is some risk, from what we can see at present the likely outcomes could be either minimal or beneficial for investors in clean energy
