MHP SE Financial Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended 30 September 2020

MHP SE (LSE:MHPC), the parent company of a leading international agro-industrial group with headquarters in Ukraine, today announces its results for the third quarter and nine months ended 30 September 2020. Hereinafter, MHP SE and its subsidiaries are referred to as «MHP», «The Company» or «The Group».

OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

Despite the challenges posed by the global COVID-19 pandemic and an outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza in Ukraine in Q1 2020, the Company delivered a satisfactory performance during Q3 and for the 9M 2020.

After a temporary decrease in utilization of poultry production capacity in Q1 (by c.10% from February to the end of March 2020 as a result of the avian influenza outbreak in Ukraine), since the beginning of Q2 all the Companys poultry production facilities have been operating at full capacity. MHP continued to develop its exports to MENA markets, increasing the share of small whole chicken production (lighter weight, 1.0-
1.5
kg/bird) through greater use of thinning. As a result, although the total number of heads in Q3 increased by 9% year-on-year, the overall tonnage of poultry production decreased by 3%. The switch in production and sales was driven by higher profitability per kilo and a more favorable market environment in MENA compared to other regions.

Poultry production volume decreased by 3% to 181,661 tonnes (Q3 2019: 186,555 tonnes). Poultry production volumes of the European operating segment (Perutnina Ptuj or PP) increased by 14% to 27,615 tonnes (Q3 2019: 24,160 tonnes1)).
