Kryukiv Rail Car – Reports very weak 1H21 results

Kryukiv Rail Car (KVBZ), the largest local producer of freight railcars and only manufacturer of passenger railcars, saw further operating and financial weakness in 2Q21/1H21. The company managed to sell only 314 freight cars in 1H21 (incl. 232 cement cars, 52 open cars, 20 tank cars, and 10 box cars), down from 948 in 1H20 (-67% y-o-y). In 2Q21, production was marginally weaker q-o-q, down 4% to 154 freight cars (-52% y-o-y). On top of this, prices were volatile. In 2Q21 production prices of open cars (the most widely used type of railcar in Ukraine) averaged $39,000/unit (but selling prices were even lower at $35,000) — marginally up from $38,000 in 1Q21 but 10-20% below levels in pre-pandemic 2019. As a result, 1H21 revenues slumped by 64% y-o-y to $23m. EBITDA went negative at $5m (vs. +$3.4m in 1H20 and +$27m in 1H19), and the company booked a net loss of $6m, down from net income of $2.0m in 1H20 and $21m in 1H19. The net cash position shrank, to $34m as of end-1H21 from $40m at end-1H20 and $56m at end-2020.
