2019 Performance

CEG’s management is pleased with the performance considering the difficult trading conditions during the trading period:

CEG revenue declined by 5% to R4.831 billion largely due to an overall decline in demand. The sectors serviced by CEG – agricultural machinery, construction machinery and the forklift sector – all experienced a significant decline in unit sales and gross margin in South Africa, due to the prevailing market conditions. CEG’s focus on annuity type business gave it protection and the improved contribution from Kian Ann Engineering Group (based in Singapore) helped CEG to limit its decline in segment operating profit before interest on financing transactions and foreign exchange movements to 17%. CEG has managed to maintain its market shares in South Africa and has once again managed to contain costs and generate cash.
