Dec.Quarter Result Misinterpreted ?


    236 Posts.

    Is it a negative net operating cash flow of 972,000 or an underlying top result $528,000 Positive ?

    Item 1.7 - Other Pre-payment of goods for re-sale $1,500,000 has caught investors off guard I believe, and as it can be confusing, should have had a clarification note attached.

    Why would you do this ?
    Two schools of thought.
    1) a supplier was going out of business or had surplus stock & offered it up at a discount too good not to take up.
    2) creditors are asking for upfront payment.

    I went back over the 2014 accounts.

    i) the company has significantly increased its product portfolio offering to its traditional markets and also started selling its products to new markets. In addition, the Company switched to in-house production, to enable cost savings and improved quality control.

    ii) On 8 July 2014, the Company’s subsidiary, ORH Distribution Pty Ltd was granted with a Motor Vehicle Dealer licence ( stock ? )

    iii) I also liked the steep increase in repayment of borrowings at 1.18 in the current 4c

    iv) and possibly most noticeable given how far this business has turned around............

    TPG is an eternal optimist ( do your own homework ) however it would appear we are poised for a significant March quarter result.
