The loss came after the company allowed $47.3million for restructuring and other associated costs, and compared with a $10.6million profit for the 2016 financial year.
Mondelez NZ claimed nearly $7.5million in tax credits to narrow its reported loss to $9.9million from a $7.6million profit last year after paying nearly $3million in tax in the previous corresponding period.
The operating profit was $66million from revenue of $296.7million and $230.6million of costs. The 2016 profit was $55.6million from $302.5million of revenue.
At balance date, total liabilities exceeded total assets by $3.5million. In 2016, total assets exceeded total liabilities by $6.3million.
In the notes to the financial statements, Mondelez said the ability of the group (Mondelez Investments and its subsidiaries) to continue as a going concern depended on ongoing support of its ultimate shareholder and its ability to assume profitable operations.
Mondelez Australia Pty directors confirmed in the event that Mondelez NZ was unable to pay its $120million loan to Mondelez Australia, the New Zealand entity would not be required to repay the portion of the loan until it recovered its loan repayment capability. Mondelez Australia would capitalise the New Zealand group for the portion of the debt owed, if the debt could not be repaid timely.
