Investment Thesis:


-Market Leadership in the Rostov Region, Russia. Don Agro has been operating as

a single entity for more than 10 years, a result of the privatisation of five

collective farms. The group's good financial track record can be attributed to

the experienced gained and the structured and hands-on farm management

practices, which continue to be overseen by a senior management team who has

been with the group since 2012.

-Acquisition-led growth, supported by a healthy balance sheet. KGI expects

growth to be primarily driven by acquisitions. With the purchase of Volgo-Agro

LLC in 4Q2020, Don Agro added around 10,040 hectares to its land bank,

increasing it by 19% to 63,240 hectares as at end-2020. The group is in a

robust financial position to embark on more acquisition-led growth and to

invest in new machinery, thereby increasing production yield. The Group has

generated positive free cash flows since 2018 and was in a net cash position of

S$7 million as at end-2020.

-Meeting the demand of a growing world. Don Agro's key products (wheat,

sunflower, corn, and raw milk) are witnessing global demand growth. The

OECD-FAO forecasts that the expanding global population remains the key growth

factor for agricultural demand.
