What impacted the Treasury Wine share price this year?
Treasury Wine Estates boasts household names in popular Australian wines including Penfolds, Beringer, Lindemans, Wolf Blass and Rosemount Estate.
Overall, investors showed an outpouring of support for the winemaker, sending the company’s share price higher in a few bursts during the year.
Looking back at 2021, we see that February provided a major boost for shareholders. Company shares jumped more than 20% from $9.90 to $11.91 between market close on 16-18 February.
Investors responded positively to the 2021 interim results announcement. Despite underlying net profit after tax declining 24%, shareholders reacted well to the update. Net debt was down $403.7 million while the company declared a dividend of 15 cents per share.
May was also a superb month for the Treasury Wine share price. Shares exploded 11.46% between the close on May 12 and May 17 after an investor presentation. At the time, the company revealed its goal to drive growth, profit, efficient capital usage and strong shareholder returns.
For the 2021 financial year, Treasury Wine boosted its net profit after tax by 2%, up to $250 million. As my Foolish colleague James reported, the main driver of growth in the FY 2021 was the company’s North America business with strong support from its operations in Australia and New Zealand business. Shares hit a yearly high of $13.20 the day after these results were reported.
Shares in the company also soared almost 7% between the close on 17 November and 19 November off the back of two announcements.
The first was when Treasury Wine revealed it would acquire Frank Family Vineyards in California’s Napa Valley for $432 million. The company then hit the headlines on news its Penfold brand would partner with Blockbar to produce non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Blockbar is a leading NFT marketplace for luxury wines and spirits.
