M.P. Evans Group Share Price Information

Name M.P. Evans Group Epic MPE
Sector Food Producers ISIN GB0007538100
Activites M.P. Evans Group PLC (formerly Rowe Evans Investments PLC) completed its merger with Bertam Holdings PLC and Lendu Holdings PLC on 2 February 2005. The enlarged Group's assets consist of oil palm and rubber plantations (both majority and minority held) in Indonesia and Malaysia, the latter with real-estate development value, and beef-cattle interests in Australia. The Group's strategy is to exit from its plantation investments in Malaysia within the next five or so years. These assets have, in varying degrees, considerable real-estate value due to their proximity either to the North-South Highway or to conurbations. However, the earnings derived from them are modest and, in the board's view, the time has come when they should be disposed of as and when acceptable prices can be achieved. It is the board's intention to undertake a substantial expansion in Indonesian plantation ventures which should achieve higher returns and will supplement the existing portfolio of majority and minority-held plantation investments in that country.

Safe haven? (MPE)

Excellent results today from MPE. Record profits, trading below worth of (tangible!) net assets, $30M net cash in the bank. 2009 may well see lower palm oil profits because of exceptional prices early 2008, but price has recovered last few months and if they can also start making money from...
