HA NOI (VNS) — FPT Corporation (FPT) yesterday announced that the company recorded a net profit of VND585 billion (US$27 million) in the first four months of the year, an increase of 23 per cent over last year.
The company's pre-tax profit in the first four months increased by 14 per cent to VND884 billion ($40.9 million) over last year.
The company's earnings per share (EPS) also rose by 23 per cent to reach VND1,700.
