Q2 2022: Honeywell Flour Mills Plc Records Loss

Honeywell Flour Mills Plc (HFMP), a food manufacturer in Nigeria, has reported a N2.4 billion loss for the financial year ended June 30, 2022, compared to a profit of N150 million recorded in the corresponding period of 2021.

However, the company recorded a N40.6 billion revenue for the period under review which reflects a 23% increase compared to N33 billion recorded in the corresponding quarter of 2021.

The company, however, disclosed that the loss is due to the impact of the unprecedented socio-economic environment and global inflationary strains

The company which became a member of Flour Mills of Nigeria Group on the 12th of May 2022 after the successful completion of the acquisition transaction says it continues to take pragmatic steps towards building a more sustainable brand.

According to a disclosure signed by the company secretary, Osomomen Olukoya, it stated, “The quarter reflects the impact of the unprecedented socio-economic environment and global inflationary strains. These market disruptions led to incessant increases in input costs, particularly of wheat and diesel which pushed up prices of the company’s products relative to locally produced substitutes. HFMP is expected to be earnings and margin accretive during the latter part of this year.

“Following the company’s acquisition by FMN, Nigeria’s leading producer of quality products and owner of the iconic brand ‘Golden Penny’, HFMP is now poised to become a robust Nigerian entity that can better leverage financial, technical, and human resources as part of Nigeria’s largest food company.”

Speaking on the plan in place by the company to ensure that the HFMP continues to maintain market relevance, Nassib Raffoul, the managing director of the company commented, “We are confident that our performance in the second quarter of the year will record significant improvement. We are deploying measures to cushion the effect of the exacerbating input prices while also strengthening and expanding our business portfolio by accessing new markets and driving margin improvement through operational efficiency.

“We will continue to execute our five core strategic pillars through three drivers of growth, efficiency and capability. And with consumers’ behaviour evolving faster than ever, we are adapting to this new reality by executing with speed to meet the need of our multiple stakeholders. We are committed to investing in our capabilities, know-how, and talents to continue to create value.”
