Overall Performance The year ending December 31, 2014 proved to be another challenging year for the Barbados Stock Exchange Inc (BSE). Overall trading volume and value fell by 67% and 72% respectively. All markets recorded declines and there was no activity on the Junior and Block Trade Markets. There was a minor improvement in the total number of trades occurring, however, this increased activity was still being severely affected by contracting share prices. The Bond Market also experienced small improvements in the number of trades occurring but saw a reduction in the total face value traded during 2014. There were no extraordinary transactions occurring in 2014. Table 1 below illustrates all activity occurring on the board of the BSE for the year ended December 31, 2014.

There was one delisting from the board of the BSE; Barbados Shipping and Traded Company Limited was the sole security exiting the board during 2014. Three companies underwent rebranding exercises; Almond Resorts Incorporated was renamed ABV Investments Incorporated, Neal and Massy Holdings Limited changed its name to Massy Holdings Limited and Light and Power Holdings Limited is now Emera (Caribbean) Incorporated1. Market indices showed mixed results in 2014 when compared to the closing figures for 2013. At year-end, the Crosslisted Index was the only measure to record an increase of 14.78%. The Local and Composite indices, however, had fallen by 28.65% and 17.45% respectively, below their 2013 year-end figures. The improved Cross-Listed Index performance was due primarily to the increase in the traded price of both Massy Holdings Limited and One Caribbean Media Limited. These two securities experienced double digit increases in share price by the close of 2014, over their December 31, 2013 figures. The BSE Market Capitalization measures performed similarly with the Cross-Listed Market Cap recording increase of 14.84%, and the Local and Composite Market Cap measures recording declines of 32.9% and 21.6% respectively. It should be noted that the declining Local Market Cap performance was attributed primarily to the de-listing of Barbados Shipping and Trading Company Limited and a 24.17% decrease in the price of the Exchange’s largest issuer - FirstCaribbean International Bank.

5 As illustrated in Table 3 below, there was a decrease in both the volume and value traded for the fourth quarter of 2014 when compared to the corresponding period in 2013. The Regular Market showed promise despite recording a decrease of 33% in terms of volume, the value traded was 37% higher than that traded in the corresponding period in 2013. The Put Through market2 recorded a substantial decrease in activity, 97% in terms of both volume and value, while there was no activity on the Junior Market or the Block Trade Market3 to match both Markets’ performance during the 4th Quarter of 2013. For the 4th quarter, all market measures saw improved performance. The Local and Cross-listed Index measures recorded increases of 0.02% and 1.78% respectively resulting in a minor 0.65% increase in the Composite Index measure. Similarly, the Local and Cross-listed Market Cap measures recorded increases of 0.02% and 1.84% respectively which resulted in an improvement of the Composite Market Cap of 0.64%.

Economic Factors This segment of the report was compiled from the Analysis of Barbados’ Current Economic Performance dated December 2014 and published by the Central Bank of Barbados (CBB). In its report the CBB estimated that overall economic activity would improve by 0.3% in 2014. Improvements were attributed to the expansion in activity in the Construction sector, estimated at 1%, due primarily to the investment in tourism related projects to the tune of approximately $152 million. Expansion in Construction and an increased demand for export for quarrying products resulted in 21% growth in the mining and quarrying industries. Tourism value added has experienced growth (1% est.) as well with long-stay arrivals experiencing a similar increase in growth. Tourist arrivals increased by 10% due to increased airlift from the UK market, however, arrivals from the US, Canada, Trinidad & Tobago and CARICOM markets all experienced declines. While noting that the 12-month moving average rate of inflation had slowed to 1.7% at the close of October 2014, they also stated that the average annual rate of employment had rose from 11.2% as at September 30, 2013 to 12.5% at the close of September 2014. The increase was a result of job losses attributed to Government’s fiscal consolidation program. In reference to the fiscal consolidation measures instituted over the past 18 months, the CBB noted that “foreign reserve movements in 2014 reverted to the normal pattern observed in 2010, 2011 and 2012.” The stabilization in foreign reserves is very positive and at December 31, 2014 reserves stood at $1,052 million or 14.5 weeks of imports. Savings from the consolidation exercise have been estimated at $181 million or 2.1% of GDP. Receipts from the Consolidation Tax ($20 mil), Municipal Solid Waste Tax ($39 mil) and Asset Tax ($14 mil) totaled $73 million while marked savings were recorded for the expenditure on wages and salaries and grants to public institutions; there were $53 million and $55 million respectively. At the close of the third quarter, the total revenue collected was estimated to be $95 million higher than projected. The CBB noted that “...increases in corporate taxes ($15 million), VAT ($6 million), excises ($7 million) and import duties ($7 million)” were recorded. A reduction in the level of food and beverage imports as well as declining intermediate goods imports resulted in the reduction of Retained Imports of approximately 0.4%. There was also an estimated 5% reduction in fuel imports; it should be noted that fuel prices also declined by 14% after July 2014. Electrical Components and Chemical exports recorded increases of 27% and 9% respectively while Rum exports declined by 13% the net effect was a 4% increase in the level of Domestic exports. The CBB noted that “the revised fiscal target deficit of 7.2% of GDP for Fiscal Year 2014/15 can be achieved, so long as total supplementaries do not raise expenditure by more than $65 million...”. When compared to its December 2013 figure ($203 million), the primary deficit - the fiscal deficit net of interest payments, improved to $7 million. While end of year net public sector debt to GDP was estimated at 73%, the CBB noted “Barbados’ debt level is not out of line with many industrialised countries, such as Italy, Ireland, the US and Singapore, which are more highly rated by credit rating agencies.” The CBB has proposed economic growth of approximately 2% for 2015. This projected growth is based on expected activity in both “tourism and construction activity, and the spin-off effects to wholesale, retail and business services sectors”.

The largest increases were seen for the Cross-Listed market measures as the Index recorded a 1.78% increase while the Market Capitalization measure recorded a 1.84% increase over its September 30, 2014 closing figure.

Conclusion At the close of the third quarter of 2014 trading activity, especially in terms of trading volume performance, had surpassed their corresponding 2013 values. Contracting share prices resulted in less than favorable value performance, however, the return of stable activity was seen as positive. Fourth quarter 2014 performance, while promising, simply did not match that of 2013 which saw large transactions on both the Put Through (1,995,967 shares in Goddard Enterprises Limited at $6.25) and Block Trade Markets (12,907,292 shares in Banks Holdings Limited at $2.95). An examination of the index performance of some exchanges across the globe showed positive results for most international markets while all regional markets recorded declines in index performance. Table 16 below, illustrates that all of the international exchanges, with the exception of the London Stock Exchange’s FTSE 100, experienced increases in their index measure. The largest increase of 17.94% was recorded by NASDAQ’s Nasdaq 100 Index followed by the New York Stock Exchange’s S&P 500 Index which recorded an increase of 11.39%. In the Region, Barbados Stock Exchange Inc. (BSE) recorded the largest decrease of 17.45%, followed by the Jamaica Stock Exchange (JSE) with a decrease of 5.31%. The Trinidad and Tobago Stock Exchange (TTSE) and the Eastern Caribbean Stock Exchange (ECSE) also recorded declines of 2.88% and3.37% respectively. Table 16 - Year on Year Index Comparison

As we look towards 2015, we are ever hopeful to see incremental improvements in market performance despite the many challenges being experienced in the wider economy. We will continue our infrastructural improvements, press ahead with the demutualization of the BSE and the establishment of our very own International Securities Market.
