The decrease of -2.0 per cent in the consolidated profit attributable to shareholders of the company as compared to the corresponding quarter of the last year is due to:

Revenues: Reduction in topline growth of 0.8 per cent is due to a decline in export sales, changes in demographics, a general contraction in the market coupled with an increase in product promotions and general changes in the product portfolio mix.

Gross Profit: Decreased by 3.2 per cent is due to higher cost of sales which is primarily driven by higher alfalfa cost and an increase in labour costs. This has been partially offset by better cost management, stable commodity costs and enhanced production efficiencies.

Selling and Distribution Expenses (S&D): Were higher by SR10.8 million ($2.88 million). This is due higher general marketing expenses and trade support offset by better efficiencies in route to market and trade operations.

General and Administration Expenses (G&A): Were lower by SR14.4 million ($3.84 million). This is due to the reduction in cost in various back office functions, efficiency programs and reduced labour costs as result of lower headcount, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
