During the six month period under review the Company incurred an after tax loss of Kshs. 43.3 Million, as compared to an after tax loss of Kshs.46.6 million in the previous year. The realized sales revenues were Kshs. 14.9 million (2018: Kshs. 35.9 million) which were affected by the depressed international coffee prices due to an oversupply in the South American countries amid suppressed production volumes due to lower than projected coffee volumes.
Early crop volumes for the six month period decreased by 44% [2019: 46Tons 2018: 94 Tons] as a result of severe drought in the first half of the year coupled by high temperatures. Coffee is especially sensitive to such high temperatures a factor that contributed to poor flowering of
the crop. The coffee average prices decreased by more than 25% [ 2019: $2.81, 2018: $3.73] in the period under review.
The Companys coffee bushes are in good shape under the management of CMS. Management has continued to embark on coffee tree nutrition practices to ensure that Eaagads coffee quality levels are not compromised. Prudent cost management will also result in cost savings.
The Board of Directors do not recommend the payment of an interim dividend for the six months ended 30 September 2019 [30 September 2018: Nil].

The above are extracts of the Financial Statements that were approved by the Board of directors on 26 July 2019. These accounts were audited by Ernst & Young LLP, Certified Public Accountants and received an unqualified audit opinion.
During the year under review, the company produced 419 tons of coffee compared with 154 tons in 2017/18. The increase was mainly attributed to favourable weather coupled by good agronomical practices. The company achieved sales of 416 tonnes of coffee compared with 252 tonnes in 2017/18. The average price realised during the year increased to USD 3.37 per kilogram from USD 3.32 per kilogram in the prior year.
The Company reported a profit before tax of KShs 1.7 million compared to a loss before tax of KShs 51.8 million in the previous financial year, largely due to the year on year increase in coffee revenues by 115 per cent. Revenue was KShs 179.6 million in 2018/19 compared to 83.7 million in 2017/18. The cost of production is directly correlated with production levels. Picking and wet processing costs went up by KShs 28 million. Crop commission charges increased by KShs 8.6 million, attributable to a crop sale commission of 2.75% levied, mainly due to timing of crop sales. Farm management fees remained at USD 7.5 per hectare.
The Company also revalued its freehold land (44 hectares) and this resulted in a revaluation gain of KShs 25.8 million, net of tax. The remaining land, is held on a leasehold basis and measures 341 hectares, is not subjected to a valuation, in compliance with the International Accounting Standards.
The companys coffee bushes are in good shape under the management of CMS. We have experienced severe drought from Jan to May 2019 with extreme high temperatures. Coffee is especially sensitive to such high temperatures, a factor that contributed to poor flowering of the crop. The initial expectation for 2019 crop was pegged at 350 tons but due to this factor we are expecting a significantly lower harvest. International coffee market prices have reached unprecedented low levels, currently having the New York benchmark market under USD 100 cents per pound, which is the lowest level for more than a decade. The coffee price decreased by more than 19% in the current financial year, from USD 118 cents per pound to USD 95 cents per pound. There can therefore be no certainty as to what prices will look like in the near future. Eaagads coffee continues to attract a premium in the market due to its quality, although it is still impacted by the International coffee prices.
The financial performance of the company improved during the current financial year however, the reserves of the company are still not substantial enough to warrant a distribution to shareholders, especially considering the adverse weather conditions experienced in early 2019 and the declining trend in international coffee prices.
The board of directors therefore do not recommend payment of a dividend for the year ended 31 March 2019 (31 March 2018 Nil)

No interim dividend
During the 6 month period under review, the Company made an after tax loss of 20.5m as compared to an after tax loss of 7.6m in the previous year. This is principally due to the prolonged dry weather which has resulted to reduced crop and increased coffee upkeep cost.
Due to the turbulence in the international coffee prices, there was a significant decrease in coffee sales revenues due to lower coffee volumes and a decrease in the market prices of coffee in the period.
No interim dividend.

From the Commentary
Eaagads Coffee fetched an Average $3,200 per Tonne versus $5,800 per Tonne
Poor results. Since They seem unable to make money from Coffee they should sell the Estate or start with the Grasslands and return the cash to Shareholders because it would unlock a lot of Value

In Sep 2010 Eaagads took a 47.359m Biological Revaluation.
The Company has elected not to book a Biological Revaluation in 2011.
You do not have to be a Rocket Scientist to calculate that The Revaluation would be material.

The Operating Profit Figure gives you a more accurate Picture of the P and L. I have an Issue with why the Company would elect to duck
