BRF's Revenues Rise to R$ 7.2 Billion in the Third Quarter 2012

SAO PAULO, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BRF net sales reached R$ 7.2 billion, an increase of 14.3% over the same period of last year and 5.1% higher than the second quarter of 2012. The EBITDA margin was 7.9% of company's net sales and EBITDA total amount of R$ 565 million.

It is worth highlighting the fact that during the third quarter, the company fulfilled the agreement signed with the Brazilian anti-trust agency (CADE) and concluded one of the most important stages of the merger process. As expected by the company, this transitory process combined with the world economic situation impacted the results in the quarter.  

Nevertheless, BRF achieved very positive revenues in its operating segments in the third quarter, with an expansion of 7.4% on the domestic market, 26% in exports, 4.8% in dairy products and 8% in food service. There was an increase of 4.3% in sales volume which amounted to 1.6 million tons.

The price increase adjustments partially reduced the pressure from the costs of the main raw materials on the operating margins in the third quarter. However, the impacts were still significant as the costs of corn, for example, increased by as much as 26.3% in the period over the second quarter of this year.

The EBITDA margin fell by 3.6 percentage points in the quarter. Gross profit amounted to R$ 1.5 billion, a decline of 5%, and net income was R$ 90.9 million, 75% lower than the third quarter of 2011.

During the year, 283 products were launched in order to expand the portfolio, to reposition brands and/or categories and adding value. There was 115 product launches in the third quarter, distributed as follows: Food Service – 18, domestic market – 51; export market – 31; and dairy products segment – 15.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
