COMMENTARY ON THE RESULTS
Overview:
Across our various markets, we have seen a gradual improvement in the trading environment which supported the overall positive performance of the Group.
In Kenya, the Government’s support for uninterrupted learning in schools, the new school calendar year in July 2021 and a gradual economic recovery drove the recovery of sales in our largest market.
In Uganda, schools reopened in January 2022 since March 2020.
We have since enhanced our market penetration activities resulting in the highest revenue level in our history of operating in that country.
We supplied books to over 23,000 public primary and 5,500 secondary schools across the country which further established our brand in the market.
Our ongoing geographical diversification across Africa continues to impact positively on our topline and will remain a key driver of revenue growth.
In the year under review, we saw increased activity across our other markets relative to the previous year. We are positive that this trend will be sustained.
Financial Highlights:
Revenue for the year recovered robustly with an increase of Kshs 494 million, representing a 40% growth, compared to the previous year.
The increase was primarily driven by expansion into new geographical markets and increased sales following the resumption of learning in schools.
The growth trajectory is expected to continue and is sustainable given the investments made to develop new markets under the new curricula.
The increase in operating expenses was mainly attributable to the reinstatement of staff benefits that had been reviewed as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic and increase in selling and distribution costs due to increased sales and marketing activities in the year.
Finance costs reduced by 27% from the prior year on account of the reduction in borrowings, in light of the strong performance in operational cash generation. Cashflows from operations amounted to Kshs 566 million
in the year, reflective of increased collections from customers as our markets recover.
Against the above background, profit after tax improved to Kshs 40 million compared to Kshs 7 million for the prior year, an increase of 434%.
Outlook:
Digital business – We continue to make significant investments in our digital business, with a pipeline of products in the offing.
We see this segment of the business as a key driver of our performance going forward.
We are currently at the fundraising stage for our digital portfolio.
This will allow our current and new business to scale in partnership with like-minded venture builders.
Product portfolio – Our approved products continue to increase across the Group.
The additional approvals for titles secured in our markets in the year included CBC Grade 6 and 7, set books and complementary titles in Kenya, 51 secondary titles in Uganda, 9 titles in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the revised Kamusi Kuu in Tanzania.
We are looking forward to additional approvals in all markets in the next financial year.
Our successful market entry to DRC followed by Ghana adds significant coverage to our existing markets.
This will position the Group as the main African platform to access over 70 million learners across the continent.
Our digital solutions will further enable us to scale the range of solutions provided in the market.
The recent addition of new business segments (Longhorn Language Services, Longhorn Publishing Services and international titles distribution) will broaden our reach outside the textbook business.
It also creates a network of interdependent businesses that leverage on the existing value chain.
This integration of several solutions across Africa is the key to unlocking the full potential of our Group. We are well positioned to serve our customers and register significant growth moving forward.

Commentary

The COVID 19 pandemic and its effects on economies and people had the most significant impact on the business in the year under review.
There was the extended suspension of learning in schools and constrained consumer wallets.
Kenya and Uganda begun the year with schools closure and movement restrictions as part of the pandemic containment measures.
Overall, the countries where Longhorn operates were adversely impacted by COVID 19.
Financial Highlights:
Revenue for the year increased by 16% to Shs 1.244 billion compared to the previous year. Kenya recorded an 18% revenue growth, Tanzania 8% while Uganda recorded 83% for the year.
Tanzania marked the 4th straight year of revenue growth while Uganda surpassed USD 1 million in revenue despite the country being under lockdown for most of the year.
The operating expenses for the year decreased by 53% compared to the previous year due to the cost containment measures implemented during the year such as renegotiation with suppliers and the streamlining of operations.
Finance costs increased by 21% which was attributable to the investments the Group continues to make in regional expansion, product diversification and the digital transformation journey.
Management intends to reduce the loan balances progressively as the Groups performance improves.
Borrowings and finance costs have reduced by approximately 30% in Q1 of FY 2022.
Profit before tax was Shs 17.8 million compared to the prior year loss before tax of Shs 295 million.
This marked a significant turnaround in the business, confirming the resilience of Longhorns business model, strong brand, agile employees and ability to adapt to a changing operating environment.
Future Outlook:
Digital The business is upgrading its eLearning and eBook platforms which are anticipated to be launched in Q2 of FY 2022.
New products such as SOMO are being developed to serve the ex curriculum space.
Regional presence The Group continues to take advantage of opportunities and revenue is expected to grow in the African markets including the DRC and Cameroon, which we entered last year. Plans to enter the Ghana market are at advanced stages.
Product portfolio The significant titles developed in the year included primary and secondary coursebooks in Uganda, approval of CBC Grade 6 titles in Kenya, as well as English and French titles in Cameroon.
The development of titles in both course and non- course books will continue as part of our product development.

COMMENTARY ON RESULTS
The Board of Directors of Longhorn Publishers PLC is delighted to announce the unaudited results for the half year period ended 31 December 2019. Gross revenue for the period increased by 4% from the prior period. This has been driven by the significant rise in sales of our reference products such as Kamusi ya Karne and the Comprehensive Atlas due to the improvements made to the products over the last 12 months and an aggressive marketing push. The sales volumes for the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) products and the new Secondary School Revision Encyclopaedias continue to rise further, boosting our performance in Kenya. The regional markets of Tanzania and Uganda have also recorded a revenue growth of 21% and 15% respectively.

The total comprehensive income and net margins remained relatively flat from the prior period due to development costs for new products. However, the margins are set to improve in the second half of the financial year as the group is set to realise higher returns from investments made earlier in the year. The business remains dedicated to the implementation of the Competency Based Curriculum for which we have successfully completed the distribution of over 2.4 million Grade 4 books countrywide.

The decline in cash and cash equivalents in the period is mainly due to the change in the sales cycle, which resulted in a rise in the sales in the months of November and December, hence increasing the amount of payments owed by customers at half year. The digital transformation journey is ongoing and we continue to develop new products as we improve the existing content for our platforms based on market feedback. The Board is satisfied with the growth experienced in the regional markets and the expected finalisation of the route to market strategy into additional African markets which will solidify our presence in the continent.

These unaudited financial statements were approved by the Board of Directors on 17 February 2020.

COMMENTARY ON RESULTS
Longhorn has recorded a turnover of Ksh 1.60 billion against the previous year turnover of Ksh 1.69 billion. This reduction in revenue was attributed to a decline in government spending on textbooks.
The profit after tax for the financial year ended 30 June 2019 was Ksh 185 Million, an increase from Ksh 183 Million from the previous financial year.
This improved performance in profit, despite the reduction in revenue generated, was as a result of operational efficiencies achieved through improvements in the product cycle which has consequently reduced product origination and printing costs, resulting in a 7% increase in operating profit margins.
Regional markets contribution to overall revenue increased by 41%. This was brought about by the successful implementation of the 2018 2021 Strategic Plan which focuses on product diversification for the regional markets.
The Companys liquidity position remains strong with positive cash position of Ksh 73M. The cashflow position has decreased due to some significant receivables expected from recently concluded contracts.
As we embark on the new financial year, Longhorn continues to make significant investment in growing its digital product offering as well as expanding into new territories with special focus on Francophone countries, which Longhorn seeks to enter through strategic alliances.
Longhorn remains committed to its vision to be the leading provider of innovative learning solutions in Africa.
The Directors are pleased to recommend the payment of a final dividend of Ksh 0.52 per share, totaling Ksh 142,548,000 for the year ended 30 June 2019.
The dividend is subject to approval by the shareholders at the 2019 Annual General Meeting and will be paid on or before 26 February 2020.

Conclusions

Dividend 7.76% of Yield.

The companys performance was largely driven by the success of the product diversification strategy which saw Longhorn increase its income streams, the company said in a statement.

The Nairobi Securities Exchange traded firm last year signed deals to print and distribute reference materials such as dictionaries, Bibles, hymn books and charts as it sought to reduce its reliance on textbook sales.

Longhorn is expected to raise Sh500 million through a rights issue in the coming weeks to fund its product and regional expansion plans.

Impressive.

Company Commentary

Longhorn, Kenyas first listed book publisher, began trading on Kenyas Alternative Investment Market Segment in May. Governments generally accounted for 80 percent of textbook purchases, Longhorn said.

Conclusions

Its at a Post Introduction Low and evidently soft Results were expected. Nothing compelling here, for now.
