UPDATE 1-Malaysia's FGV disappointed with U.S. ban on its palm oil products
(Adds more details, CBP comment and share price movement)

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Malaysian palm oil producer FGV Holdings Bhd FGV has taken steps to fix allegations that it uses forced labour and is disappointed with the United States' ban on imports of its products over the claims, the company said on Thursday.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued the ban on FGV's products on Wednesday after a year-long investigation that the agency alleges showed abuse, deception, physical and sexual violence, intimidation and the keeping of identity documents.

FGV is the world's largest producer of palm oil, used in everything from food to cosmetics. The company and other suppliers have faced past allegations of human rights abuses.

"FGV is disappointed that such decision has been made when FGV has been taking concrete steps over the past several years in demonstrating its commitment to respect human rights and to uphold labour standards," the company said in a statement.

The company said all the issues raised have been the subject of public discourse since 2015 and it has taken several steps to correct the situation, which are "documented and available in the public domain."

FGV will continue to engage with the CBP to clear its name, the company said.

Shares in FGV dropped as much as 6.1% at the opening bell.

CBP said it was not able to share total imports by FGV but that the ban "will not have a significant impact on total U.S. imports of palm oil and palm oil products."

There have been $147 billion worth of U.S. imports of palm oil products since August 2018, CBP said in an e-mail.

There are several risks factors on any Plantation earnings estimates, price target and rating. Key risks to the palm oil sector are:

(i) weather anomalies resulting in poorer-than-expected output growth -Let's hope for a good weather the next coming 3 months.

(ii) lower than-expected CPO price achieved – On Target and currently CPO is still Up trending

(iii) negative policies imposed by import countries –

Positive. The exemption of CPO export duty by the government of Malaysia till Dec 2020 will be positive for CPO exports (especially to India) and will help support CPO price which is expected to be under pressure in 3Q20 due to the anticipated stockpile build-up amid seasonal production recovery.

Negative in US for FGV right now. It should not affect other company shipments. FGV need to act fast like what Top Glove did recently..

(iv) unfriendly policies imposed by the Malaysian and Indonesian government on upstream or downstream segments – Already factored on India’s move to restrict the importation of refined palm oil*. This will result in quicker build-up of MPOB stockpile when output recovers from 2Q20, and cap CPO price upside

(v) sharply lower crude oil prices which makes palm biodiesel demand not viable – Brent has already breached USD 40

(vi) weaker competing oil prices (like soybean and rapeseed- On Target. Alternative Oil Prices is on the rise which make Palm Oil very attractive.

OTHERS FGV Holdings Berhad ("FGV" or the Company") Clarification on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Withhold Release Order (WRO)
FGV HOLDINGS BERHAD

Type Announcement
Subject OTHERS
Description FGV Holdings Berhad ("FGV" or the Company")
Clarification on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Withhold Release Order (WRO)
The Board of Directors of FGV wishes to confirm that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has placed a WRO on palm oil and palm oil products made by FGV and its subsidiaries (FGV Group) and joint ventures on 30 September 2020.



FGV would like to emphasise that all issues raised have been the subject of public discourse since 2015 and FGV has taken several measures to correct the situation. FGV’s efforts are well documented and available in the public domain.



FGV has taken steps over the past several years in demonstrating its commitment to respect human rights and to uphold labour standards. Various efforts have been carried out by FGV in honouring these commitments, including the following:



FGV continues to strengthen its procedures and processes in the recruitment of migrant workers. FGV has established four One-Stop Centres in Malaysia and in source countries namely in India and Indonesia, as part of our efforts to strengthen the pre-departure and post-arrival orientation programmes for our migrant workers. Through these orientation sessions, the migrant workers are briefed on various matters including the terms of their employment, job scope, nature of work, rights and responsibilities, as well as benefits and entitlements.
FGV has also established guidelines and procedures for Responsible Recruitment of Migrant Workers in 2019, adopting international standards. Under the said guidelines, FGV is committed to pay the costs associated with the recruitment of migrant workers, which include air fare, costs for work permit, visa, medical check-up and insurance. FGV has also revised the contracts with recruitment agencies to ensure that the recruitment agencies do not charge any fees to the workers.
FGV is not involved in any recruitment or employment of refugees. Effective 2020, FGV recruits its migrant workers mainly from India and Indonesia through legal channels and processes, recognised and approved by the Malaysian authorities and the source countries. As of August 2020, FGV has 11,286 Indonesian workers and 4,683 Indian workers, collectively form majority of FGV’s plantation workforce. Furthermore, FGV does not hire contract workers as all workers are directly employed by FGV.
FGV is also pioneering the implementation of the electronic wallet (e-wallet) for cashless payroll system for its plantation workers. The e-wallet system, which gives empowerment to the workers, acts as a more convenient and efficient way for workers to manage their finances. It has been successfully rolled out since February, 2020 in Gua Musang, Kelantan, involving 1,500 registered users in 11 estates. By first quarter 2021, FGV aims to implement this system for its entire plantation sector nationwide.
FGV does not practise retaining the passports of its workers. However, FGV does install a total of 32,250 safe boxes throughout all of its 68 complexes as an option for the migrant workers to keep their passports safe.
On housing, FGV has over the past three years invested approximately MYR350 million to upgrade housing facilities for its workers by constructing new residences in our plantations all over the country.
FGV respects workers’ right to healthcare by providing health benefits, which cover annual expenses for outpatient care and unlimited allocation for inpatient treatment.
Mindful that human rights and sustainability standards must be fulfilled throughout our supply chain, FGV has adopted a Supplier Code of Conduct (SCOC), outlining the principles and standards relating to sustainability, business ethics and integrity, safety, health and environment and labour, with which our suppliers and vendors are required to comply. Any supplier or vendor that does not comply with the SCOC will be subjected to FGV’s Supplier Delinquency Guidelines, with the possibility of being suspended or terminated and blacklisted should they fail to demonstrate willingness to rectify the gaps in their practices.

FGV does not tolerate any form of human rights infringements or criminal offenses in its operations. FGV pays serious attention to any allegation of physical or sexual violence as well as intimidation or threats. Any case of such nature will be acted upon by FGV, including by reporting to the relevant authorities.

FGV is a participating company in the Fair Labor Association (FLA), an international organisation. The Company is currently implementing a long-term and comprehensive action plan under its affiliation to the FLA that comprises a number of initiatives to further strengthen the various aspects of our labour practices such as our recruitment process, human rights training programmes, working and living conditions, as well as grievance mechanisms etc. FGV’s action plan for 2020 was adopted on 31 March 2020 in consultation with the FLA and with various other stakeholders including civil society organisations (CSOs).

The action plan was adopted at a time when the COVID-19 situation was rapidly worsening globally, including in Malaysia. Despite the unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced FGV to realign its priorities to ensure that necessary measures are taken to curb and combat the spread of COVID-19, FGV remained committed to implementing the action plan, and FGV believes that concrete progress has been made in the six months of implementation beginning April 2020. FGV is confident that it is on the right track to be able to accomplish the action items due to be completed by the end of 2020.

FGV’s affiliation to the FLA is subject to rigorous validation exercises and public reporting. FLA’s report on FGV’s progress on the implementation of the action plan is published on FLA’s website.

Since August 2019, FGV has been communicating with CBP through our legal counsel and have submitted evidence of compliance on labour standards as committed by FGV. FGV will continue to engage with CBP to clear FGV’s name, and is determined to see through its commitment to respect human rights and uphold labour standards.

The WRO does not have any material financial and operational impact on FGV Group.

The Company shall make further announcement if there are any material development in respect of this matter.

This announcement is dated 1 October 2020.

How true?
"The order is the result of a year-long investigation that revealed forced labour indicators, including abuse of vulnerability, deception, restriction of movement, isolation, physical and sexual violence, intimidation and threats, retention of identity documents, withholding of wages, debt bondage, abusive working and living conditions, and excessive overtime. The investigation also raised concerns that forced child labour is potentially being used in FGV’s palm oil production process," the CBP alleged.

Government needs to independently investigate and full disclosure to convince.

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 1): Malaysia is anticipating the United States to ban the imports of another plantation firm, after the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency blocked entry of palm oil products from FGV Holdings over forced labour allegations.

"Another big firm will be banned soon," Human Resources Minister Saravanan Murugan told reporters on Thursday, according to a recording heard by Reuters.

Industry analysts warned that the ban on FGV could lead to buyers in other countries turning away from the company or shunning Malaysian palm oil.

As long as Palm Oil is still competitive, they will go for Palm Oil. It's a supply and demand issues.

I view very little downside. More danger is the bigger plantations like Sime Darby, IOI and KL Kepong. All use the same labor practice.
Glove counters also kena and would probably take 6 months to rectify.
Sale to US is 5% but share price drop 8%. Imagine if the palm oil produced is FOC, it should only affect 5%. Got support from Govt funds like KWSP
