cerrito: share price reaction to the RNS understandable. In some ways I had taken these results for granted. The higher hurdle to jump is manufacturing and more important basic distribution and then key good old fashioned salesmanship.
cerrito: In the December IMC, Richards said that he would reinstate expectations in this TU and I was looking for something more specific than the generally upbeat tone. I see that in H2 20 cash and equivalents decreased from $5.1m to $4.1m which is pretty good especially as their 6 month R&D spend has been around $1.4m. I note their comments about working capital reduction which is also good given that their working capital position at June 2020 was in line with recent figures I do not want to be a party pooper but Richards did say in the outlook in the interims about having material revenue growth in 2020 and it is for each of us to consider if we think the 9pc constant currency growth was material. What I do not have a good insight if they will need to do an equity raise especially given the working capital requirements in Brazil. I see they did have bank borrowings at the half year but we are not told the size of the facility. I get the feeling that a small equity raise of say $4m would be useful which would mean that retail investors like me would be shut out but they would be able to get it away with a small discount to the then current market price.
vsb234: Somebody is building a stake here. There have been two similar 700,000+ share trades after hours this week. Then the price is marked down the the bottom of the spread. The company is also appears to be mounting a shareholder charm offensive (maybe bid defences?). They are certainly vulnerable to a bid.
cerrito: I just got round to listening to the Inverstor Meets Company presentation...some good q&a. One issue is if they do not get approval from the Federal authorities in Brazil to allow PHC279 to be launched for the 21/22 growing season, especially as they still have to sign up a distributor and manufacturer and neither will want to invest time and money until they can get themselves comfortable that approval will be forthcoming. Do any of you share my concern at their not being able to be fully up and running for the 21/22 season? As someone who was in PIM there was a sense of deja vu in discussing the asian rust disease. If I had listened to it live and thus been able to ask questions, I would have asked what if anything they took away from the PIM experience. I am not into Croda so cannot comment on what they have been doing with Brazilian soya. Waiting for the end of month TU with its renewed guidance for what 2021 should bring.
1pencil: Awarding options with a strike price of 1p. "The Company has awarded 6.5m options with an exercise price of 1p per share under the Plan (representing 2.58% of the Company's current issued share capital)"
cerrito: Just caught up with the midweek news from Bayer reducing expectations from their agricultural sciences division for the rest of this year and next because of Covid related issues. I need yo work out the see through to PHC. Any views?
colin12345678: Highlights: US Corn - PHC 279 increased corn yields by 9-15% when applied as a foliar spray, creating potential grower value of $54 - $82 per acre at current average prices. - PHC279 significantly improved the control of two key corn diseases by as much as 50%, even under heavy disease pressure. Spring wheat - PHC279 increased yield by as much as 17% when added to the standard disease control program, which is worth $86 per acre at current prices. Lettuce - PHC279 increased yield by as much as 22% compared to fungicides alone. - PHC279 also improved disease control as much as 31% following foliar application. In the US, 91m acres of corn were planted in 2019. Severe southern rust disease can routinely reduce corn yields as much as 25 bushels per acre. At current prices, this would equate to lost revenue for the farmer of $79 per acre. In historical epidemics of southern corn leaf blight, yields were reduced by 20 to 25 percent nationwide, resulting in an estimated $1 billion loss in harvest. In the Company's trials, when PHC279 was applied together with a leading chemical fungicide, it significantly improved control of both diseases compared to the fungicide treatment alone, and yields were increased by as much as 26 bushels per acre depending on application timing. Even a more modest benefit of 5-10 bushels per acre is likely to provide an attractive return on investment in the potential range of 5:1 to 8:1 for farmers who apply PHC279 to their fields. In the UK, when PHC279 was applied to spring wheat seeds prior to planting, followed by adding it to the standard spray fungicide program, yield was increased by as much as 17% in fields with Septoria tritici blotch, the major disease of wheat in the UK. At current prices, this yield benefit would be worth $86 per acre to the farmer. Lettuce drop disease is a major pathogen affecting US lettuce cultivation. In a series of US field trials inoculated with Sclerotinia, the causative agent of lettuce drop disease, PHC279 treated plants yielded as much as 22% more than plants treated only with the standard chemical fungicide program. With an acre of lettuce worth more than $10,000 in the US in 2018, even a modest increase in lettuce yield will likely justify the cost of applying PHC279. Plant Health Care's PREtec peptides stimulate the plant to defend itself. Derived from natural proteins, this is a novel, environmentally friendly approach to protecting crops and increasing yields, compatible with mainstream agricultural practice. PHC279 may allow farmers to reduce applications of toxic fungicides or to achieve better control of disease. Gary L. Cloud, Ph.D., a research agronomist and owner of GLC Consulting, Inc. participated in the testing of PHC279 in corn this season, and offered the following, "There was heavy disease pressure and PHC279 provided visible improvement in disease control and higher yield compared to the standard fungicide when applied early in the growing season. That is somewhat amazing due to the time that elapsed between application and harvest. I believe PHC279 will be a valuable tool for corn growers struggling to control disease in their fields." Chris Richards, CEO of Plant Health Care, said "We are extremely encouraged with the performance of PHC279 in multiple key crops. Building on our recent success with PHC279 for the control of Asian soybean rust in Brazil, it is clear PHC279 will have important benefits for farmers in many crops. The registration of our first PREtec peptide is progressing in the US and Brazil and the scale-up of manufacturing has started. We are excited about the potential for products based on our PREtec peptides, which are targeting markets with an initial opportunity of $5 billion. We aim to launch the first peptides as soon as regulatory permits have been obtained, to offer these valuable new tools to growers in the US and other countries."
cerrito: I listened to the Edison TV interview with Dr Richards and went through the prelins in a bit more depth. He reiterated what they said in the prelims ie that even in the worst case scenario they had cash till early 2022. Note the March 21 RNS referred to approvals for PHC 279 but I could see no reference to that in the prelims. I need to say that on further reflection I have got confused about how strong sales will be in 2020 given Brazil ethanol and also US fruit industry with both labour issues and disappearance of restaurant trade, A slow burn but at least they have plenty of cash.
cerrito: Interesting that they limited the share raising to an amount which even before expenses was less than 2019 cash burn. Suggests that they have a good deal of confidence, which is manifest in the directors'participation. Typo56 I can understand why you say what you said. However I am sure that you have also seen many occasions when AIM companies have done an Equity raise which has excluded private shareholders and the price has subsequently fallen below the share offer price.
riddlerone: What a disgrace,massive discounted placing again from the management that keep insisting that they are funded until cash flow positive. "The Issue Price represents a discount of approximately 43.9 per cent. to the closing mid-market price on 21 February 2020, being the latest practicable date before this Announcement."
