Revenue up 10.6% to HK$884.6 million; and
Segment results record double-digit growth for two consecutive years

HONG KONG, May 11, 2020 - (ACN Newswire) - Nissin Foods Company Limited (the "Company", and together with its subsidiaries, the "Group"; Stock code: 1475) has today announced its unaudited 2020 first quarter financial information for the three months ended 31 March 2020 ("the Reporting Period").

Mr. Kiyotaka Ando, Executive Director, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nissin Foods

Revenue of the Group amounted to HK$884.6 million, representing a year-on-year (YoY) increase of 10.6% from HK$799.6 million. Gross profit increased by 7.9% YoY to HK$284.2 million (2019: HK$263.4 million), with gross profit margin decreasing slightly by 0.8% to 32.1% (2019: 32.9%), mainly attributable to the increase in raw material costs YoY. Profit attributable to owners of the Company was HK$99.0 million, representing an increase of 8.0% YoY from HK$91.7 million. Segment results recorded an optimal double-digit growth of 25.7% YoY to HK$125.7 million from HK$100.0 million.

For the Hong Kong operations, revenue recorded an increase of 11.1% YoY to HK$358.4 million (2019: HK$322.7 million) during the Reporting Period, mainly attributable to the increase in demand of bag-type instant noodles in Hong Kong. As for the PRC operations, revenue increased by 10.3% YoY (in local currency: 16.1%) from HK$476.9 million to HK$526.2 million, due to the improvement in sales volume of cup-type instant noodles in the PRC, although the foreign exchange translation of earnings in Renminbi depreciated against the Hong Kong Dollar this year.

The Group has recorded a remarkable performance, with segment results achieving double-digit growth for two consecutive years. During the Reporting Period, the Group has formed a joint venture company to provide a more comprehensive range of products for customers to satisfy their greater demand for Japanese-branded food and beverage products in the PRC. This helps diversify the Group's product offering as well as seek new revenue streams in the long run.

Mr. Kiyotaka Ando, Executive Director, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nissin Foods, said, "The Group has delivered a solid set of results in the dynamic environment in the first quarter of 2020, achieving double-digit revenue growth in Hong Kong and the PRC. Our business has proven resilient in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. We have moved fast to support our consumers and reacted quickly to meet their needs. As we humbly take it as our responsibility to ensure the stable and reliable supply of quality food products, we have also tapped into growth opportunities in non-instant noodles business for long-term development. It remains impossible to predict how long today's socio-economic uncertainty will last. However, the Group will remain focused on delivering satisfactory results to its shareholders in 2020."
