Lincoln Moore, Dekel‘s Executive Director, said: “The overall Company performance in H1 2021 is arguably our strongest since joining the London AIM Market.  The strong palm oil high season, significant advance of the cashew processing plant towards first production and substantial strengthening of our Balance Sheet via the capital injections have put the Company in an excellent position moving forward.  In particular, credit should be given to the operations team for delivering a strong palm oil high season to ensure the Company capitalised on the current multi-year high CPO prices.  We look forward to the next 6-12 months with great optimism for a further step up in the Company operational and financial growth.”

Crude Palm Oil

·      Production: 12.6% increase in CPO produced to 2,638 tonnes in June 2021 compared to June 2020’s 2,343 tonnes

o  Brings total CPO produced for H1 2021 to 26,515 tonnes, 11.0% higher than the 23,882 tonnes of CPO produced in H1 2020

o  11.0% increase in CPO produced in June less than 16.5% increase in June fresh fruit bunch (‘FFB’) deliveries due to lower oil content of the fruit and exceptional comparatives

§ June 2021 CPO extraction rate increased from the previous month to 22.3%, however, remained lower than the exceptionally high 24.4% in June 2020

·      Sales: 97.3% increase in CPO sales volumes in June reflect higher monthly CPO production and material quantities of sales agreed in May which were delivered in June

o  Brings total CPO sold in H1 2021 to 24,784 tonnes compared to 23,906 tonnes sold in H1 2020

o  CPO stock on hand at end of H1 2021 is over 1,900 tonnes compared to 215 tonnes in H1 2020 which will be supportive of H2 2021 results

·      Prices: 82.3% increase in average realised CPO prices to €915 per tonne in June 2021, a record monthly price for the Company (May 2020: €502)

o  Brings H1 2021 realised prices to €817, a 35.7% increase on H1 2020

o  International CPO prices have softened slightly but continue to trade at multi-year highs of approximately €800 per tonne

o  The local 4-6 week price lag mechanic in Cote d’Ivoire means we are currently achieving CPO prices higher than the international price

Palm Kernel Oil (‘PKO’)

·      Production: H1 PKO production 9.4% lower than H1 2020

·      Whilst PKO sales for H1 2021 are 22.1% higher than H1 2020 we continue to take a patient sales strategy approach to capitalise on rising local PKO price levels – Dekel currently holds over 800 tonnes of stock at the end of H1 2021 which we expect to sell gradually during H2 2021

·      PKO Prices achieved in H1 2021 26.1% higher than H1 2021

Palm Kernel Cake (‘PKC’)

·      Similarly to PKO, we are also taking a patient approach to sales prices to capitalise on rising local PKC price levels

·      Prices: 28.3% increase in average realised PKC prices to €77 per tonne in H1 2021 compared to €60 per tonne in H1 2020
