REA’s FY’18 results showed a marked recovery in the group’s FFB production, up 50.8% YoY, to a record level of 800,050mt; CPO production increased by over 51%, to 217,721mt. However, revenue was up only 5.2%, to $105.5m ($100.2m); crop growth was strong but results were significantly dampened due to commodity prices, with the palm oil price hitting a 10-year low, at $440/mt, in November 2018. The CPO price suffered a 17% drop to an average $596/mt for 2018, and the PKO price plunged 27.2% for the year. With the PBJ transaction completed, REA is focusing on raising production efficiency and planting out the remaining land bank should funding become available.
