-- Earnings per share for the quarter reached Ps.$ 0.458, compared to PS$ 0.457 in 1Q09
Cristobal Mondragon, Bachoco's CEO, stated, "While the economic conditions prevailing in Mexico continued to slowly improve, we observed a good demand for our products, impacting our first quarter results and showing an improvement from the previous year in terms of sales and volume sold.
"In particular, the chicken industry was stable with good demand, lower prices and costs than in the previous quarter. The cost was lower mainly due to the strength of the Mexican peso and stable cost for our main imports.
"As a result of the business agreement reached last July, production efficiency and some organic growth registered in the states of Chiapas and Yucatan, the Company recorded an important increase in volume of chicken sold during this quarter.
"Our egg business, swine and balanced feed showed important improvements as seen in the results for the quarter.
"Our results were strong and sound, while our financial position remained solid even after the investments made during the past quarters," concluded Mr. Mondragon.
Releases made during the quarter:
On April 7, 2010, the Company reported to the market that its table eggs facilities located in Mexicali, Baja California, which represent about 9% of its total table eggs production, were affected by the earthquake registered on April 4, 2010.
FIRST QUARTER 2010 RESULTS Net sales 1Q10 (%) 1Q09 (%) Chicken 79.8% 79.0% Eggs 10.1% 10.2% Balanced feed 5.5% 5.8% Swine 1.2% 1.0% Other lines 3.4% 4.0% Total Sales 100.00% 100.00%
Net sales for the first quarter amounted to Ps. 5,931.2 million, and were 1.1% above the Ps. 5,866.8 million reported in the same 2009 quarter. This increase was mainly driven by higher chicken, eggs and swine sales.
Bachoco's first quarter gross margin was 17.2%, lower than 18.8% reported in 1Q09. This result is directly attributed to a decrease in the sale prices of Bachoco's main line products.
The Company registered an operating profit of Ps. 342.0 million, which is lower than the operating profit of Ps. 494.8 million registered in the same 2009 quarter. The operating margin for the first quarter of 2010 was 5.8%.
EBITDA amounted to Ps. 511.9 million, below the Ps. 654.3 million reported in the same 2009 quarter.
Taxes Total taxes for the first quarter were Ps. 62.5 million.
Comprehensive Financial Income (Cost)
The Company's comprehensive financial cost was Ps. 2.9 million during the quarter, which was substantially below the comprehensive financial cost of Ps. 119.8 million reported in the same year-ago quarter.
Net Majority Income (loss)
Net majority income for the first quarter amounted to PS. 274.9 million, or Ps. 0.46 per share (US$0.44 per ADS), compared to a net majority income of Ps. 273.9 million, or Ps. 0.46 per share (US$0.44 per ADS) reported in the same 2009 period.
The financial position of the Company remained solid with cash and cash equivalents amounting to Ps. 2,851.9 million as of March 31, 2010. The total debt outstanding for the same period was of Ps. 863.4 million.
Capital Expenditures CAPEX during the first quarter of 2010 amounted to Ps.60.8 million. RESULTS BY BUSINESS SEGMENT
Sales of chicken products increased 2.1%, when compared to 1Q09, as a result of the 16.6% increase in volume, which is mainly attributed to productivity achievements, organic growth and the integration of the new business agreements. This increase in volume was partially offset by the 12.4% decline in chicken prices.
Sales of table eggs products increased 0.2% during the first quarter, mainly stemming from a 2.4% increase in the volume sold. This growth was partially offset by the 2.0% decrease in table eggs prices. This business line remained solid with a good level between demand and supply.
Sales of balanced feed decreased 3.8%, mainly due to the 0.8% decrease in prices and 3.1% decrease in balance feed volume.
The swine business line was stable during the first quarter. Sales were strong and rose 15.8%, as a result of a 20.1% gain in volume sold; which was partially offset by a 3.6% decrease in swine prices when compared to the same 2009 quarter.
Sales of other lines decreased 13.6% when compared with 1Q09, as sales of turkey and by-products declined.
