Company Overview

Business Description:
Transpacific Industries Group Ltd (TPI) provides integrated industrial cleaning, recycling and total waste management solutions to customers across Australia and New Zealand. TPI is also a player in the domestic heavy-duty commercial vehicles industry.

Strategy Analysis:
In the mid 2000‚Äôs, Transpacific grew exponentially ‚Äď boasting 220% revenue growth from 2005 - 2008. Sadly, drivers were far from organic, propelled by the acquisition of 47 separate companies costing AUD 2.6 billion. Cheap credit and an ambitious CEO fuelled the acquisition binge, leading to a near collapse during the GFC. Despite a volatile past, Transpacific is a leading provider of waste management and environmental services with an asset base covering primarily Eastern Australia and New Zealand. Fiscal 2012 was a year focused on strategic emphasis, improving profitability and reducing debt. Growth initiatives and cost efficiencies are now planned for fiscal 2013 and beyond, focusing on new municipal contracts for Cleanaway, expansion of hydrogenation capacity in Industrials, and new contract wins in New Zealand. Transpacific Industries Group reported NPAT of $32.3m for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $1.16bn, up 3.8% from the same period last year. Basic and Diluted EPS was 2.0 cents compared to 0.7 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $120.0m compared to $99.3m last year. No dividend was declared.
