COMMENTARY ON THE 2019 UNAUDITED HALF YEAR RESULTS
The Total Kenya PLC Board of Directors is pleased to announce the unaudited half year results for the period ended 30th June 2019.
GROWTH IN REVENUES AND PROFITABILITY
The Company realized a 7% growth in profit after tax in the first half of 2019 compared to a similar period In 2018. This performance was achieved through positive contribution from increase in sales volumes, diversification revenues and prudent management of operating expenses.
The Increase in Gross Turnover by 41% resulted majorly from bulk sales in the Open Tender System (OTS). Gross Margins increased by Kes 68 million.
Other Income increased significantly by 49% in 2019 compared to 2018 contributed by diversification of services in the Company's retail outlets.
The Company has continued to invest in convenient stores Bonjour Shops l, Car wash, Total Quartz Auto Service Centres and partnerships with third parties in provision of services to our esteemed customers making our retail outlets one stop shops.
Operating expenses have been controlled within inflation. Net finance income of Kes 128 million resulted from positive cash position in Kenya shillings emanating from better working capital management.
The foreign exchange loss of Kes102 million is attributable to the valuation of liabilities in foreign currency Impacted by the depreciation of the Shilling against the US Dollar in the period.
Profit before tax was above 2018 by Kes 55 million. The Companys Statement of Financial Position remained strong with net assets increasing from Kes 22.7 billion in 2018 to Kes 23.0 billion.
The Management of the Company will continue to focus on providing innovative solutions to enhance customer experience, investments to maintain safety standards in our operations and diversify on the services.
The Directors do not recommend the payment of an interim dividend.

Other income decreased to KShs 956 million 2017 KShs 1,094 million as a consequence of the decrease in surplus asset disposal income of KShs. 167 million in 2017.
Operating expenses increased by 8% due to increased depreciation on property, plant and equipment emanating from investments in the Network and Depots and inflation impact, though controlled by effective cost management.
The Company continues to enjoy finance income which in 2018, amounted to KShs 130 million 2017, KShs 274 million after netting off interest paid in USD. This is the result of positive cash position in Kenya shillings arising from effective management of working capital.
The foreign exchange loss decreased significantly in the year and amounted to KShs 1.27 million 2017 KS. 77.45 million thanks to the stability of the Kenya shilling against the US Dollar.
Total Kenyas profit for the year ended 31 December 2018 recorded a drop of 16% mainly resulting from the effect of a volatile international prices of finished products platts negatively impacting margins in the price regulated segment.
The Companys statement of financial position remained strong with a growth in assets by 3% from KShs 38.01 billion in 2017 to KShs 39.26 billion in 2018.
