    MD&A Highlights

    Whilst the Corporation reports another profitable and financially positive quarter, the board can confirm that it is actively looking for new opportunities that will offer long-term growth potential and stability of sales for shareholders, be it related to its existing anthracite calcining operation in South Africa or another new, and unrelated, sector.
    With zero long-term debt, a strong balance sheet, and a cash flow positive business in South Africa, the Corporation believes it is in a good position to do so.

    Sales for the first quarter of 2019 were low compared to the previous quarter in 2018 at $2,419,633 (2018: $3,273,213), a 26% decline, however gross profits grew to $329,519, compared with $248,562 in the same quarter in 2018, a 33% increase. Net income for the quarter remained static at $187,367 (2018: $187,126), but increased from $108,996 the previous quarter. Despite sales reducing during the quarter, gross profit margin increased due to discounted feed material being purchased during the period as well as savings made through acquisition of machinery, which subsequently reduced rental costs for the Corporation. The Corporation expects profit margins to reduce next quarter, and remain squeezed throughout the rest of the year, as Southern Coal continues to manage increased input costs.

    The Corporation expects revenues to be reduced in comparison to the year ended October 31, 2018, mostly due to global pressure on the steel and manganese markets, which subsequently filters back to demand for Southern Coal’s product. During Q1 2019, the Corporation is pleased to confirm that a trial load of its calcined product was delivered to a new potential, and significant, customer. The Corporation hopes to finalise a second trial during Q2 and Q3, and should this convert to an ongoing supply, the Corporation feels that there is potential to return to the revenue levels of the year ended October 31, 2018.

    During Q1 2019, Southern Coal made its final payment for the 14 million Rand loan from ABSA bank, which was drawn down in February 2015. Repayment of this loan now releases Southern Coal from monthly installments of approximately 392,000 Rand (approx. C$37,000 or US$28,000). As of January 2019, the Corporation has zero long-term liabilities.

    As part of Southern Coal’s B-BBEE transformation program, Amandla Amakhulu (Pty) Ltd, (“AAM”), a 100% black, privately owned, and ringfenced, company incorporated in South Africa, acquired 30% of the issued shares of Southern Coal, from Canaf’s wholly owned subsidiary, Quantum, for the value of 18 million Rand. The financial effective date for the transaction is 01 August 2018.

    Quantum in return received cumulative, redeemable preference shares in AAM in the amount of the purchase price. These preference shares shall provide preferential dividends, until redeemed by AAM. These dividends will be secured by an irrevocable direction from AAM to Southern Coal to pay Quantum such dividends from any distribution to AAM. Dividends were declared during the first quarter of $135,441.52

    Expenses for the quarter were $119,276 (2018: $167,892) a reduction of $48,616, 41%, although not separately reported in Q1 of 2018 there are a significant amount of increased costs in relation to BBEEE compared to Q1 ofthis financial year.

    Canaf Investments registers South African subsidiaries

    2019-04-15 10:50 MT - News Release

    Mr. Christopher Way reports

    CANAF ANNOUNCES NEW SOUTH AFRICAN SUBSIDIARIES

    Canaf Investments Inc. has registered new South African subsidiaries as part of its growth and diversification strategy.

    Canaf has registered a new wholly owned South African subsidiary, Canaf Investments Pty. Ltd., which wholly owns Canaf Estate Holdings Pty. Ltd.

    The new subsidiaries have been registered as part of the corporation's strategy plans, with the intention of creating a diverse corporation focused on sustainable and long-term growth sectors within South Africa. Canaf Investments Pty. will be used to act as a holding company for new South African investment companies.

    CEH will be used to invest in properties primarily within the suburbs of the old Johannesburg CBD; an area that is currently benefiting from significant investment and regeneration projects. The corporation sees investment in real estate in these suburban areas as an opportunity to acquire properties that should experience significant capital growth, whilst yielding healthy rental returns. Examples of major projects close to CEH's target area include Jewel City, Maboneng and Victoria Yards, and one of the major funds to invest in the area is Divercity, http://divercity.co.za.

    The vision for CEH is to acquire, redevelop and hold properties targeting the student and affordable housing market, with the goal to purchase enough critical mass to uplift the entire area, thereby growing the capital value of the properties in the area.

    The Corporation can also confirm the acquisition of CEH's first investment of approximately $150,000, which is expected to yield a 20-per-cent return when fully occupied. Funding is sourced organically through existing cash reserves and local lenders. Canaf plans to develop further opportunities using similar sources of capital.
