What to expect in 2021
Even as the company maintained in its November annual general meeting (AGM) that the coronavirus pandemic may continue to interrupt business in 2021, medium-term tailwinds will still outweigh. According to the company’s forecast, EBITDA margin would fall by nearly 2 per cent to 3 per cent in FY21. However, it would rebound to 30 per cent in line with the company’s longer-term target.
Government’s policies give hope
In its October trading update, the company said that it may benefit from the robust stimulus by the government in the infrastructure sector. The positive changes concerning the waste sector are also suitable for the company’s long-term business model, it noted. The Recycling Modernisation Fund and the Modern Manufacturing Strategy by the central government would help the company going ahead, Bingo said.
