ATS's long term strategy ensures positive future
The first full year’s trading of Ruralco as a wholly owned subsidiary of ATS has produced significant benefits for the co-operative and for members accessing the many discounted services and products through the expanding Ruralco Supplier network.
The Ashburton based farm supplies co-operative recorded increased Group revenue of $210m compared to $119m in the previous year and this was primarily due to the Ruralco card business being fully consolidated into the ATS Group for the whole year as opposed to only one month in the previous financial year.  There was a gross profit of $8.8m for the year and EBITDA (Earnings before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortisation) was $228k, compared to $6.8m and $495k respectively in the previous year.  Group equity at the end of 2016 was $14.9m ($15.2m in 2015) and as in the previous financial year, there was no long term debt.
