Earnings in line with model; equity income from CPALL missed
CPF posted a 1Q21 net profit of Bt6.95bn, up 14% YoY and 8% QoQ. Excluding extra items in 1Q21—Bt6m FX gain, Bt154m loss from biological assets and Bt10m in reversal of asset impairment—core profit was Bt7.08bn, up 9% YoY and 11% QoQ. Net and core profits were consistent with our model. Sales, gross profit, after-tax profit beat our model by 4%, 11% and 63%, respectively. However, equity income undershot our model by 43% due to CPALL’s missed net profit. GM of 19.9% beat our 18.6% estimate and increased from 18.3% in 1Q20 and 17.1% in 4Q20 due to the de-consolidation of China’s feed business.
