Mangkhut Typhoon Damage Assessment

Typhoon Mangkhut was the strongest hurricane to strike Hong Kong and China’s Pearl River Delta since 1983. As of September 23, 102 fatalities have been attributed to Mangkhut, mainly in the Philippines. 

Based on our preliminary assessment, overall losses for Sino Agro Food are likely to be capped under USD 1M. Repairs of buildings and infrastructure will account for about 80% with the remaining 20% arising from loss of product, mainly broodstock and HU fruits and vegetables. The typhoon will not have a more than minimal adverse effect on overall production in Q4 2018 or beyond, with the exception of the HU plantation.
