Marlborough Wine (NZX:MWE) Half-year results confirm steady brand building

Financial results for Marlborough Wine Estates Group Limited (NZX:MWE) were released this Thursday morning and signs indicate that the Company is steadily building its local and global brand in line with its long term strategy. The results cover the six months ending 31 December 2020.

Contributing to the results, Marlborough wine estates note:

  • The Company’s fulfilled its first large orders from Canada, Singapore, and Malaysia.
  • Case orders from Japan, Finland, and Taiwan were undisrupted by the pandemic, and continue to remain a significant market for the group.
  • Locally derived revenue increased in line with the company’s growth in market share. Operating costs grew in step with the growth of sales. Marlborough Wine Estates recognises that this is not sustainable and will begin cutting operating costs such as marketing in the immediate future.
