With no surprise, Q1 FY21 top and bottom lines declined due to tough comps. The momentum remains, however, strong looking at CAGR 21/19, but input cost inflation is now the main threat looking forward.
Unsurprising very strong FY20 results (but still even more than our expectations). We believe Ebro is at a turning point and we continue to be positive on the stock.
Although the figures showed greater volatility, the rise in demand triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic continues to dominate Ebro’s results. Deleveraging is well on track.

After a strong set of FY19 figures, Ebro’s Q1 benefited from COVID-19 due to increasing rice and pasta consumption. Q2 should be even better, while we expect a gradual return to normal starting in Q3. EBITDA is affected by raw material prices increase, but the group is confident that the FY20 bottom line should be better yoy.
A strong set of FY19 figures, especially thanks to strong comparables. We note that organic investments had begun to bear fruit, although the company doesn’t expect to see the relevant impacts until 2021. In the mean time, it is actually debt that is going up.
The group reported a strong set of Q3 FY19 results, beating analysts’ expectations on the bottom line. Ebro’s investments finally pushed up growth… as well as the group’s debt.
