New Zealand King Salmon Investments Limited (NZX: NZK) Market Update

Thursday 3rd June 2021

Text too small?

The Board of New Zealand King Salmon advise that trading in the first half of FY22 (Feb to July 21) has been problematic. King Salmon is a difficult species to farm and there were issues with our fish in the warmer Pelorus Sound over the summer months that hindered growth in that region, after changes were made to our farming model. The smaller fish size and reduced biomass has progressively become more apparent with the completion of post summer weight assessments.

We believe this is temporary. Steps have been made to rectify the issue and we believe that fish sizes will be recovering by July and biomass should improve to a satisfactory position in October. The balance sheet remains strong.

The company has profitably closed out foreign exchange hedges that were surplus to requirements. Price increases have been notified to the market, with benefit to be seen in the second half.

In light of current trading conditions, we expect to provide more detailed guidance with the announcement of our half year results for the six months ending 31 July 2021.
