FSA tonnage sales analysis for the 2015 financial year

Please find attached a comprehensive analysis of the tonnage sales recorded upon which FSA collected its levy for the 2015 financial year.  Also recorded is a history of tonnage sales and income generated from the inception of FSA in 2002.

  • In terms of the 2015 financial year, the following are the most salient points:
  • Total of 15 830 000t was up 330 000 tons (+2.1%) on the budgeted tonnage of 15.5mt and 117 000t (+0.7%) up on last year.
  • Of concern was that after good figures for the first three quarters of the year, sales in the last quarter slumped being 405 000t or 10.5% below budget.

Estimated product sales in 2015 compared to those in 2014.

1. Sawlogs
of 4.6mt up 198 000 tons (+4.5%)
2. Pulpwood
of 10.3mt down 29 000 tons (-0.3%)
3. Other
of 0.8mt down 52 000 tons (-5.8%)
  • Income of R28.0 million was down R183 000 (-0.6%) on the budgeted amount of R28 210 000.  Compared to 2014, this represents a R1.5 million or 5.8% increase.
