    Sunora Foods Q3 Financial Statement with MD&A (Ending September 30th 2016)

    Price: $0.16
    Common Shares: 42,254,332
    Insider/Institutional Holdings: 71% total, as per information circular. CEO holds 52%

    Financials:

    Assets
    Cash: $3,091,780
    Accounts Receivable: $1,233,869

    Total Liabilities: $1,332,422

    Note: Sales in Q4 2015, Q1/Q2 2016 were affected by a co-packer issue. This meant that Sunora Foods were required to find other means of distribution, hence hurting sales and margins during those 9 months. This is now resolved, see MD&A below. As well, sales are up year over year even after co-packer setback.

    Q3 Sales - $3,281,156 ($2,451,477 in 2015)
    9 Month Sales - $8,804,308 ($8,452,570 in 2015)

    Q2 2016 Net Income - $55,615
    Q1 2016 Net Income - $24,971
    Net Income for 2015 - $502,182 (Q4 was a loss of $54,000 due to start of co-packer issue)
    Net Income for 2014 - $189,073
    (Company was private until 2014)

    MD&A Highlights

    In the third quarter of 2016, sales increased 15.7% due to an increase in bulk oil sales in comparison to the second quarter. In the second quarter of 2016, sales had increased 5.5% due to some increase in bulk oil sales in comparison to the first quarter. Sales for the first quarter of 2016 were 12.6% higher than the fourth quarter of 2015. Sales for the fourth quarter of 2015 were 2.6% lower than the third quarter of 2015 due to a decrease in overseas sales. 2015 third quarter sales were 24% lower than the second quarter of 2015; second quarter 5 sales were 18% higher than first quarter of 2015.

    Sunora's sales to the United States have recently trended higher in proportion to sales in Canada. Overseas markets are generally continuing to grow, although international sales were adversely impacted in the first six months by short term conditions. Sales in Canada declined in this nine month period compared to the same period last year due to reduced bulk oil shipments in Canada. The growth of sales in emerging markets is due to a trend in greater awareness of healthy food choices in an expanding middle class. Overseas sales are continuing to grow.

    Sunora had 4.2% higher sales for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2016 than the comparative nine month period. Sales were somewhat adversely impacted by delivery issues with a key co-packer. The $203,458 of net income and comprehensive income in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was 63% lower than the same period of 2015. This was primarily a result of a foreign exchange loss of $45,823, as opposed to a foreign exchange gain of $165,229 in the comparative period. Gross margin declined from 11.2% to 8.9% at least partly because of delivery issues with a co-packer.

    Cost of sales consists of purchases of crude and refined oil, packaging, freight and custom duties. Sunora achieved a gross margin of 10% in the three months ended September 30, 2016, compared to 12.9% in the three months ended September 30, 2015. Gross margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were 8.9% compared to 11.2% for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. These margins were impacted by delivery issues with a co-packer.

    The Company's target Working Capital Ratio (Current Assets divided by Current Liabilities, which is an indicator of its ability to finance its on-going operations) is 2:1. Current Assets comprise cash, accounts receivable, inventory, prepaid expenses and income tax recoverable; Current Liabilities include accounts payable, accrued liabilities and income taxes payable. The amounts of accounts receivable, inventory and accounts payable and accrued liabilities at a point in time are the direct result of sales and purchases and how the Company manages collections, supplier credit and inventory levels, which in turn is manifested in the available cash. At September 30, 2016, the Working Capital Ratio was 3.8:1 compared to 7.4:1 at December 31, 2015. The Company's business has been consistently managed with a strong working capital position which has enabled the Company to operate without debt. Additionally, the current nature of Sunora's operations has enabled it to expand without making capital investments. Therefore, the Company believes it is in a very favourable position to expand in the future.

    Outlook

    Sunora maintains good relationships with customers in North America and overseas. These relationships continue to drive demand for food oil products from Canada, with Sunora well positioned to meet existing and additional demand. Management has focused on increasing visibility in emerging markets, with a specific focus on the economies in Asia, with a view to meet this increased demand for Canadian manufactured food oil products. Sunora’s operations are impacted by geopolitical situations that may hold up deliveries as was experienced in some recent quarters. As the middle class in these emerging economies demands higher quality and healthier foods, Sunora is well positioned to meet additional demand.

    Management is actively identifying and analyzing operations that might increase gross margins for the Company. Prospective businesses considered include packagers and suppliers in the food oil industry. With each operation identified, a detailed review and analysis is undertaken by management. Specific focus is currently on packagers with operations in Canada that are looking for a strategic partner to expand international operations. Management is also actively considering possible new products that may benefit from new domestic and international markets. With the continuing positive momentum in the United States economy and new customers being added in Asia, Sunora is well placed for the future.

    The $0.16 to $0.17 range is a 3 year technical resistance price range. Once this breaks, the stock will enter uncharted territory. I don't count the pop we had a few weeks ago because it was very short lived. With the cash on hand and growing sales across the USA and China, it's only a matter of time before SNF increases in price and benefits such as dividends and share buybacks start to kick in.

    The corporation also announces it has changed its auditor from Collins Barrow Calgary LLP to Calvista LLP Chartered Professional Accountants of Calgary, Alta.

    At the request of the corporation, the former auditor tendered its resignation as auditor of the corporation, effective on Jan. 24, 2017, and the board of directors of the corporation appointed the successor auditor as the corporation's auditor, effective Jan. 24, 2017, until the next annual general meeting of the corporation.

    SNF Yearly Revenue/Profit Comparison From 2014-2016

    M=Million K=Thousands


    2014: Revenue - $13.2M & Net Income - $189K
    2015: Revenue - $10.8M & Net Income - $502K (Co-packer issue started in Q4 2015 that hurt sales)
    2016: Revenue - $12.3M & Net Income - $350K ( Co-packer issue did not end until Q3 2016)
    (Note – 2016 is an estimate based on Q3 results, added with the news release announced today)


    2014: Cash - $1.78M – Total Assets - $4.14M – Total Liabilities - $1.07M
    2015: Cash - $2.62M – Total Assets - $4.22M – Total Liabilities - $548K
    2016: Cash - $3.1M – Total Assets - $5.24M – Total Liabilities - $1.3M (These are Q3 results, not including Q4)

    Keep in mind that the CEO owns 52% of the common shares. A Chinese investment group owns 19% of the common shares, so that leaves 29% or 12,253,756 shares held by retail investors.

    With the approval of CETA today (Trade agreement between Canada and the European Union), Sunora Foods will no longer have any obstacles entering any of the European countries if they so choose to. Management has been opposed to Europe for years because of the very high tariffs and other trade barriers. These will soon cease to exist, thus giving the company more potential customers around the world.

    https://www.thestar.com/business/2017/02/15/eu-parliament-approves-trade-deal-with-canada.html

    http://cafta.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Canada-EU-Briefing-note_EN.pdf

    On Page 1:
    Canada’s agricultural exports to the EU totalled an annual average of $2.5 billion between 2011 and 2013, led by wheat, soybeans and other oilseeds, canola oil, frozen fruits and maple syrup. Canadian agricultural exports to the EU currently face high tariff rates, with average EU agricultural tariffs of 13.9 percent.

    Looks like we can finally move forward here with SNF, that seller at .19 was finally taken out. Well no volume for 3 weeks after some decent trading, means the buyers were there but did not want to pay above a certain price. Finally once the cheap stock stopped coming down, people decided it was best to hit the ask and that's where we are today. Given what SNF has and where they are going, price is undervalued compared to it's peers. But this gap will be made up in the next 80 days when we get year end results, Q1 results and possibly an update with other matters. Europe is a new area for Sunora to trade it's products without any tariffs and that was a huge unexpected bonus.

    Thanks for posting that. I know that once we get year end results end of April and Q1 2017 end of May, there's no reason why SNF can't be trading in the low 30's with a couple more positive quarters and perhaps some new trade deals.
