LIMA, Peru, May 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Camposol Holding Plc. reported sales of USD 60.5 million in the first quarter of 2014, up 49.0% from Q113 mainly due to an increase in volume sold of frozen mangoes and grapes, as well as increasing prices of preserved white asparagus, fresh mangoes and shrimps.

During the fourth quarter of 2013, EBITDA was USD 7.4 million, 83.9% higher than Q113, explained by higher volumes of frozen mangoes, as well as increasing prices of preserved white asparagus, fresh mangoes and shrimps. EBITDA margin for Q114 increased to 12.2%.

Volume sold during Q114 was 24,359 net MT, up 34.3% from Q113 explained mainly by an increase in volumes of frozen mangoes and grapes.

Average price was USD 2.48 per net KG, up 10.7% from the same period in 2013 mainly explained by an increase in prices of preserved white asparagus, fresh mangoes and shrimps.

As of March 31st 2014, the Company maintained a cash balance of USD 25.0 million.

The long term growth prospects for exotic fruits and vegetables markets are excellent. Avocadoes and mango are growing, with headroom for increased per capita consumption in key markets. In the case of asparagus, although consumption is stable, supply is falling due mainly to reduced exports from China. The Company expects good demand for all fresh produce in general and for avocadoes specifically in both the United States and Europe.

On April 16th 2014 Camposol S.A. announced that it had received the requisite consents from the holders of a majority in principal outstanding amount of its 9.875% senior Notes due 2017 pursuant to the Camposol S.A.'s previously announced consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation") dated April 8, 2014.

Camposol S.A. successfully reopened its 9.875% USD 125 million senior Notes due 2017 raising gross proceeds of USD 75 million. The net proceeds from the bond issue will be used for capital expenditures, mainly for the expansion of the blueberries' and shrimps' businesses. The Notes were issued as additional notes of, and will form a single issue with, the USD 125 million 9.875% Notes due 2017 issued on February 2nd 2012. The total aggregate principal amount of the 9.875% notes due 2017 outstanding following this reopening is USD 200 million.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???
