The Company noted, “The final quarter of the year saw a greater percentage increase in sales of existing third party products within our portfolio. Whilst these products increased sales and impacted positively on the company’s revenue some challenges were experienced resulting in lower gross profit margins for the quarter (32.1% vs 36.8% for the corresponding quarter of the previous year). Certain initiatives have been implemented which, management feels, will lead to improvement in the gross profit margin in the near term. Depreciation charges also increased by $256 million over FY18, driven by the investment in new state-of-the-art beverage equipment installed in FY18.”
