Flour Mills Revenue has shown quite impressive growth in the first quarter (+15% y/y, ₦169.3 billion). We believe that the company is starting to reap the benefit of strategically positioning itself in the value segment of the food market to cater to price-sensitive consumers.

Furthermore, with the land borders closed, the company has grown its market share across its other segments (specifically its sugar and agro-allied businesses). We expect these tailwinds to remain, resulting in a 19% y/y revenue growth in Q2 and a 17% y/y growth in H1’21.

Given Flour Mills expected stable debt balance in this quarter, we expect interest expense in Q2 to remain stable and PBT to print at ₦4.7 billion.

Adjusting for tax, we expect PAT to grow 4.1x y/y to ₦8.4 billion.
