Al-Rajhi Capital: Almarai Q4 profit in line with estimates

January 21, 2014

In its report on Almarai , Al-Rajhi Capital has stated that the company's Q4-13 financial results were mostly in line with its estimates. The company's adjusted net profit grew 16% y-o-y to SAR 373 million , largely in line with the report issuer's SAR 384 million estimates, but ahead of consensus forecast ( SAR 350 million ). The dairy & juice segment did well with revenue growing by 12.8% y-o-y, and net profit margin expanding by 120bps during the quarter to 18.6%. The poultry segment, though drove top line growth, continued to be a drag on the bottom line, with a sharp increase in net loss. Al-Rajhi maintained its 'Neutral' rating, with a target price of SAR 55 per share.; All Rights Reserved - Mubasher Info
