Operational Highlights – Palm Oil Operation

·     17.5% increase in FY2021 CPO production compared to FY2020, resulting in record annual production of 39,953 tonnes

·      21.0% extraction rate achieved in FY 2021 (FY2020: 22.1%)

·      14.9% increase in FY2021 CPO sales compared to FY2020, resulting in record annual sales of 39,092 tonnes

·     44.2% increase in average CPO prices to €868 per tonne in FY2021 (FY2020: €602).  This represents an annual Company record sales price

·      22.7% increase in FY2021 PKO sales compared to FY2020

·      42.5% increase in average PKO prices to €851 in FY2021 (FY2020: €597)

Operational Highlights – Cashew Operation

·     Cashew Operation capital works progressed significantly in FY2021 from a project at an early land preparation and construction phase to a largely commissioned plant with pilot production having commenced in early January 2022

·      Delays in final key equipment items have stalled the ramp-up of production in H1 2022; however, with the arrival of the colour sorter on 12 June 2022, we expect to see a material increase in operating capacity shortly

·      Cashew Operation expected to become net operating cash flow positive in Q4 2022

Lincoln Moore, Dekel Agri-Vision’s Executive Directorsaid: “It was a significant year for Dekel with our Palm Oil Operation delivering record breaking operating and financial results and our Cashew Operation moving materially towards first production, albeit with unprecedented macro conditions impacting the timing of delivery of full capacity.  Whilst macro conditions are challenging, CPO prices continue to remain strong, underpinning the profitability of the Palm Oil Operation despite a period of weaker fresh fruit bunches volumes in H1 2022 and, together with the imminent ramp-up phase of the Cashew Operation, Dekel is well positioned to deliver a period of transformational operating and financial growth.”
