Ansell Reports 19% Fall in First-Half Profit


Ansell, a safety glove manufacturer based in Australia, experienced a 19% drop in profit for the first half of the year due to decreased demand for healthcare products and the residual effects of high-cost inventory.

Financial Performance Overview

  • Net Profit: $19.4 million
  • Revenue: $784.9 million

Despite missing analyst forecasts predicting a higher net profit of $47 million on revenue of $803 million, Ansell remains optimistic about future growth, with expectations of improved earnings and profit starting from fiscal 2025.

Dividend Cut and Market Challenges

Ansell announced a reduction in its dividend to 16.5 U.S. cents from 20.1 U.S. cents compared to the previous year. The company’s strong performance during the initial stages of the Covid-19 pandemic was notably affected by increasing input costs and customer stockpiling, leading to a decline in demand following the easing of pandemic-related restrictions.

Future Outlook

Looking ahead, Chief Executive Neil Salmon expressed confidence in the business’s potential for improvement, as they anticipate a gradual alleviation of market challenges in the upcoming months.
