Investment summary

After a year of internal and external challenges, we believe Yowie has built a strong and reliable operational base and business plan that will support continued sales growth and a move to profitability by the end of fiscal 2018. With US$1.25/ADR in cash, no debt and modest working investment needs, we see Yowie shares as compelling value for long-term growth investors.

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.
