Pāmu updates full year EBITDAR forecast

Pāmu updates full year EBITDAR forecast

Landcorp Faming Limited (Pāmu) has released an updated EBITDAR (Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization and Revaluations) forecast for the 2017/18 financial year.

Previous advice from Pāmu at the time it released its half-year result was an estimated EBITDAR of between $33 and $38 million for the full year. This has now been revised up to an estimated EBITDAR of between $47 - $52 million.

Commenting on the reforecast, Chief Executive Steven Carden said factors contributing to the revision included better than expected results from milk and red meat, along with the allocation of additional carbon units (NZU), following the five yearly audit by MPI of the company’s forestry assets.

“We are pleased that we are likely to produce a better than forecast full year result. The company has had a real focus on controlling costs and maximising on farm returns, while not compromising our commitment to excellent land and animal management.

“This reforecast is particularly pleasing in what has been a challenging year from a climatic perspective.”

Mr Carden said the company expected to announce its audited full year result in late August.
