CUBA CANE SUGAR CORPORATION

123 FRONT STREET
NEW YORK




NOVEMBER 18, 1924.


To THE STOCKHOLDERS:

Your Board of Directors submits herewith the Annual Report of the Cuba
Cane Sugar Corporation for the fiscal year ended September 30, 1924.
The production of raw sugar during the year was 3,683,291 bags (of 325
Ibs.), as compared with 3,284,731 bags of the previous year. This increase in
production of approximately 12% over the last crop, is due to the increase in
the quantity of cane ground, increase in the sucrose content of the cane, and the
company's ability to reduce its manufacturing losses.
Your company has continued its policy of increasing the cane supply to more
closely equal the capacity of your mills. Only a small portion of the new cane had
matured during the period of the last crop. The tonnage of cane ground during
the 1923/1924 crop was approximately 5.6% in excess of the previous crop. The
average percentage of sucrose in the cane for the 1923/1924 crop was 13.21%, as
compared with 12.74% for the previous crop; while the total manufacturing loss
was only 1.99%, the lowest in the history of the Company.
At September 30th, all of the sugars produced by your company had been
sold, with the exception of 104,607 bags; and the average price obtained this year
was 4.4560 F. O. B. per pound. The entire cost of manufacturing and delivering
the sugars, including all expenses in New York and Havana, was 3.5520 per
pound. Of this cost, 2.4550 represented cost of cane, the balance of 1.097
consisting of operating and all other expenses.
The operating profit for the year was $12,511,718.64, and after providing for
net interest charges on bonds and bank loans and taxes paid during the year, and
providing for unadjusted claims the sum of $400,000.00, there remained a net
operating profit for the year of $9,711,426.96, which was carried over to surplus.
From surplus there was set aside the usual reserve for depreciation of
$1,750,000.00.













These earnings after depreciation are equivalent to $15.92 per share on the
500,000 shares outstanding of preferred stock, or after allowing for $7.00 per
share on the outstanding preferred stock, there would be a balance equal to $8.92
per share on the 500,000 shares of outstanding common stock. This does not take
into account the accumulated dividends on the preferred stock.
The balance sheet which appears on pages 12 and 13 of this report shows
that the net current assets of your company, including advances to colonos, com-
pany's investment in growing cane and prepaid expenses for the future crop, at
September 30, 1924, amounted to $20,543,304.79, as against $16,862,102.34 for
last year.
Your company has no floating debt, and careful estimates indicate that the
company will not become a borrower until the production of sugar for the
1924/1925 crop will have begun.
In addition to the $1,961,662.72 cash in banks, your company held refiners'
acceptance totalling $1,517,560.51, the cash for which was received within ten
days after the closing of the fiscal year.
Because of the stronger financial position, your company was able to effect
a saving in interest charges during the year of $519,387.99.
During the past year your company has made a careful survey of its various
properties, in order to adjust its book values to conservative actual values, and
as a result, the sum of $1,500,000 for dismantling and obsolescence has been
charged to surplus account, and it is believed that the net figure of $80,576,976.96
now appearing in the Balance Sheet represents conservative valuations. Likewise,
your company has carefully analysed all of its current assets, including colono
advances and investment in growing cane, and by charging to surplus reserves
totaling $3,033,100.59, these accounts now represent sound value.
We have now amply provided for all possible losses resulting from conditions
which prevailed in the industry during 1920 and 1921, after which Surplus Account
stands at $13,282,195.12.
As mentioned in our report of 1923, your company has proceeded with the
erection of a sugar factory on the Velasco lands. A large part of the machinery
installed has been obtained by dismantling certain other mills of the Corporation
located in the western part of the Island which had not been operating for the past
few seasons. Velasco mill will commence operations during the 1924/1925 crop,
and will be modern and efficient, with a capacity of 275,000 bags, and should be
capable of producing sugar as economically as any mill in Cuba. With the
completion of this mill, your company will have a grinding capacity in the East of
approximately 3,000,000 bags.













It is estimated it will require approximately $1,200,000 to complete the Velasco
mill. There are no plans for any further large developments.
There has been a decided improvement in the manufacturing efficiency of
your mills during the past year, the average losses in manufacturing being 1.99%,
as against 2.19% for the previous year, and 2.34% for the 1921/1922 crop.
REVIEW OF THE SUGAR SITUATION
As indicated in our last annual report, there was no carry-over into 1924 of
1922/23 crop sugars. From present indications all Cuban stocks will again have
moved into consumption before the close of the year, so that there should be no
carry-over of sugars of the past crop into 1925. The 1923/24 world sugar crop
was the greatest ever harvested, but the fact remains that it will be absorbed.
In the marketing of the 1923/24 crop, wide price fluctuations were encoun-
tered. The high price of 55/s c. & f. was reached in February. A declining
market followed, which carried prices down to the low mark of 30 c. & f. in June,
from which the market recovered to 4~4 c. & f. at the close of the fiscal year.
This wide range of price seems unjustified by corresponding changes in conditions
during the period, but was probably caused in part by failure to realize the easy
absorption of world crops during the year.
Sugar is a world commodity, but Cuba is such an important factor in its pro-
duction that prevailing methods of marketing the output of Cuba contribute to no
small extent to these great price variations. Owing in part to the system of paying
for cane purchased from Colonos during every fortnight on the basis of the average
sales prices for sugar during that fortnight, it is imperative that the company should
market more than half of its output during the four or five months of production.
If this is not done, the company is in effect taking the risk as to the market trend
during the closing six months of the calendar year, a course which has no justifica-
tion in legitimate marketing procedure. At present a very large proportion of the
Cuban crop is thus offered for sale during the actual months of production. Before
the war, even more rapid selling was customary, in great part compelled by the
financial inability of planters to withhold their sugars and await more favorable
prices during the months of largest consumption.
While the war was in progress, governmental regulations resulted in a more
even sale of the crop over ten to twelve months of the year. Cuba, despite improved
economic conditions, is now inclined to revert to pre-war methods of merchandis-
ing its sugars.
It would make for more orderly marketing of the crop if methods of settle-
ment could be changed so that the payment to the Cuban Colonos would be based













on the average market price of the season and not restricted to the price during
the actual months of production and such a change would prove of lasting benefit
to producer and Colono alike.
The 1924/25 world crop estimate of cane and beet sugar of Willett & Gray
and other authorities, is now placed at 21,700,000 tons. While this denotes an
increase of 2,000,000 tons over 1923/24, everything indicates that this crop like its
predecessors will be fully absorbed during the calendar year 1925.
The world war greatly curtailed production in Europe and the countries
affected are only now in a position to restore their industries to a pre-war basis.
This is the cause of the Continental increase of production. The counter-balancing
factor, too often lost sight of, is that consumption suffered even to a greater extent
than did production. World consumption in 1904 was 11,500,000 tons which had
increased in 1914 to 18,000,000 tons; on that basis of increase a world consumption
of 25,000,000 tons would now have been reached, but for the economic conditions
prevailing during and after the great war.
Increased production is necessarily slow. Consumption on the other hand is
to a great extent, limited only by supply and by the ability to purchase: with world
conditions rapidly on the mend, consumption in a comparatively short time may
well make up for years of enforced abstinence and world consumption may attain
the figures which natural growth of population and the increasing uses of sugar
would indicate as possible. It may well be that the promise of increase for the
coming year will not prove in excess of world requirements.
The tariff on Cuban sugars remains at 1.760 per pound, and while the report of
the Tariff Commission is before the President for consideration, it is impossible
to predict what action, if any, he will take in exercising the powers vested in him
by the flexible provisions of the Tariff Act.


The consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 1924, together with the
profit and loss and surplus accounts for the year ended that date, certified by the
corporation's auditors, Messrs. Deloitte, Plender, Griffiths and Company, will be
found on pages 12, 13 and 14.
It is a pleasure to acknowledge the loyal co-operation of all officers and
employees during the year.
Respectfully submitted,
By order of the Board of Directors,
W. E. OGILVIE,
President.

COMPARATIVE RECEIPTS PER POUND OF SUGAR

Following our previous annual reports, for the purpose of comparing the
F. O. B. price per pound of sugar manufactured, obtained during the last six
crops, the proceeds from "Molasses" and "Other Earnings" are included in the
following:


1918-19
5.3980


1919-20
10.3450


1920-21

COST PER POUND OF PRODUCTION


The average cost of production, on an F. O. B. basis, per pound of sugar
manufactured at your factories, including the cost of cane, was as follows:


1918-19
4.606g


1919-20
8.523


1920-21
4.3550


1921-22

COST PER POUND OF MANUFACTURING AND DELIVERING

The cost per pound of manufacturing and delivering the sugars on board
steamers, including all general expenses in New York and Havana but excluding
the cost of cane, compared with the previous five years, is as below. Cost of cane,
fluctuating as it does, with the price of sugar, and being thus beyond the control
of the management, these figures are the real test of operating efficiency:

1918-19 1919-20 1920-21 1921-22 1922-23 1923-24
1.5550 1.9400 1.9430 0.9460 1.0600 1.0970

1923-24 1,837,821= 45 2,228,821= 55 4,066,642
This shows the tremendous drop in production in 1895 by reason of the Cuban war of independence
and shows the rapidity with which Cuba recuperated, which is without parallel in the history of any
other sugar producing country. This recuperation by Cuba occurred, moreover, during years of very
low sugar prices. It is interesting to note the continuous growth from the time peace was restored in
1899 until last year, with the four exceptions of 1907-08, 1910-11, 1919-20 and 1922-23, when
production was curtailed by drought.
