Financial Results

Performance Overview

Chairman’s Report

For the year ended December 31, 2017, the Group recorded revenue of $575.2m versus $620.5m in 2016, a decrease of $45.3M (7.3%).  The revenue in 2017 was due to the strategic decision to downsize the loss making export bulk rum business and focus on brand building. Bulk rum sales represented 6% of the Group’s revenue in 2017 compared to 18% in 2016, a reduction of $60.9m. The rum brands and signature ANGOSTURA” aromatic bitters businesses performed favorably with revenue growth of 6%, to $537. 7m, and increased operating profit of $22m, or 9.8%, in 2017.

Despite the overall revenue decline and the impact of a change in depreciation methodology as we prepare for an increase in investment in plant and equipment, the business performed creditably, surpassing the average financial performance in the non-energy manufacturing sector for 2017.

The Directors have recommended a final dividend in respect of the year ended December 31,2017 of $0.12 per share with a record date of June 15, 2018 and payment date of June 30, 2018. Together with the interim dividend of $0.09 per share paid on September 15, 2017, the total dividend in respect of 2017 will be $0.21 per share.
