2014-10-30

Sahem Weekly Trading Report [26-30/10[2014

Within the expectations, the 9M financial data disclosures witnessed, in this week, a momentum coinciding with the end of the legal period granted by Palestine Stock Exchange PEX for the listed companies to disclose their financial data for the first nine months of 2014. On the other hand, the PEX didn’t witness any noticeable activity following the routine breath catching period. The anticipation accelerated for disclosing the recorded net income of the leading companies, to measure the impact of the latest Gaza war on the companies’ operations during July and August of 2014. In this context, and prior to the 9M financial data disclosure of Palestine Telecommunications Company PALTEL, the CEO of the company expects an increase in the gains from its financial investments this year to offset the $30 million of losses caused by Israel"s bombardment of Gaza in the summer, whereby, $30 million of losses equate to nearly a quarter of the company"s 2013 net profit, which include: network damage, lost in revenues plus loss in free credit to subscribers and humanitarian aid. According to a release by the executive management, the cellular network is now normally operating, but for the fixed network, it"s difficult unless there"s a big plan for rebuilding Gaza.

The earned revenues in H1 2014 contributed in forming an essential base for the accumulated revenues till the end of September 2014. Despite a decrease of 2.99% in the revenues recorded in the period from the last three months, but gross revenues increased by 0.94% due to the direct cost controlling policy. Then again and according to the expectations of the executive management of PALTEL, the gains from financial investments positively diluted the effects of other costs and losses that was realized in the income statements due to Gaza war, whereby, PALTEL recorded revenues of JD4.54 million after improving the reassessment the investment portfolio, in addition to an increase in the dividends distribution yields. Furthermore, the book value BV of PALTEL increased to JD3.88 in 9M 2014, While, it recorded P/BV of 1.40x.  

Regarding the financial data disclosure of the companies that were affected from the latest Gaza war, Palestine Electric Company PEC announced reporting net income of $1.35 million in 9M 2014 compared to $8.25 million in 9M 2013. This significant decrease came following realizing net loss of $5.71 million in Q3 2014 that ends on 30/09/2014, in which erased the posted profits in H1 2014. This followed a decrease in the electric power generation through the power station due to the company’s exposure to Israeli bombardment during July 2014, leading to damages in the power station and operation stoppage, whereby, regarding the financial data appeared as loss from disposal of assets worth $5.53 million.
