Investment summary

Yowie continues to report strong top-line results driven by product development and increased shelf space at Walmart, its key customer. After a modest slowdown in the December quarter, the company appears to be back on track. In February, Wayne Loxton announced that he is stepping down as executive chairman. With a deep bench of experienced confectionery executives, we maintain confidence in Yowie's long-term growth and profitability prospects. However, our estimates are under review as we seek to fine-tune our near-term expectations.

Industry outlook

Chocolate is a benchmark consumer product, with over half of US consumers eating it at least once a week. US consumer confidence is holding steady with a 97.3 score for July 2016 (Thomson Reuters). The major manufacturers benefit from brand loyalty, strong shelf positioning and large marketing budgets provide a competitive edge. However, there is potential for smaller brands to take share if they can establish individual appeal and prominent store placement.
