Activites Coral Products plc began life in 1991 primarily to service the expanding VHS market with a range of cassette library cases that both met the market demand for quality and the customers demanding fiscal targets. The Video products range was complemented by a leading range of housewares under the growing supermarket own label ranges using the same principals. The success of this strategy drove the companys growth and this in turn led to the companys stock market flotation in 1995, the proceeds of which were ploughed back into the business in the form of a state-of-the-art CDJewel case production facility which remains the envy of our competitors to this day 2000 saw the addition of DVD library case production with ISO 9001 accreditation being awarded to the company in 2002.

Coral Products swings to loss, scraps dividend

Specialist plastics maker Coral Products scrapped its interim dividend after mounting losses at its Haydock manufacturing facility sent it into the red.

The company booked a pre-tax loss for the six months through October of £7k, swinging from a profit a year earlier of £718k.

Revenue rose by 10.8% to £11.91m, while gross profit rose by 15.1% to £4.04m.

The interim dividend was suspended in line with a strategy to pursue organic growth, the company said.

"Results to date in the current financial year have been disappointing mainly due to the continuing losses at Coral Products Haydock facility," chairman Joe Grimmond said.

"Following the appointment of Mick Wood, COO, a comprehensive review of operations at the Haydock facility has been carried out. Problems have been identified and actions taken to resolve them during this financial year."

The review highlighted non-recurring costs of £425,000, related to one-off set-up costs for the automotive business, as well as the write off inventory.

As a result of those losses at Haydock, it was unlikely the group would do better than break-even in the current financial year, Grimmond said.

"All the other subsidiaries remain substantially profitable and as a result of the actions being taken at Haydock we remain confident of the group's future prospects," he added.

Coral Products warns on profits

Plastic products maker Coral Products PLC said its annual results would be materially below market expectations due to costs identified during a review of its production facility in Haydock.

The review resulted in slow-moving and obsolete stock worth £225k being written off, the company said.

In addition, costs of £200k were incurred converting fixed assets acquired from ICM in March in order to meet automotive industry customer requirements.

Significant capital expenditure incurred during H1 resulted in an increased depreciation charge of £244k, while associated financing costs were £58k.

As a result of these costs, which total £727k, the company said it expected to incur an interim pre-tax loss of around £7k, compared to a profit in 2016 of £718,000.

The outlook for the second half of the financial year ending on 30 April 2018 was expected to result in a small profit after non-recurring items, it added.
