HÀ NỘI — The Saigon Beer-Alcohol-Beverage Corporation (SABECO) has reported an impressive 40 per cent increase in after-tax profit for 2022, reaching a record high of VNĐ5.5 trillion.
In its financial report, the brewer saw revenue jump 33 per cent from 2021 to VNĐ35.24 trillion (US$1.5 billion) last year as consumption bounced back after two years of COVID-19.
In 2022, the company spent more than VNĐ3 trillion on marketing and promotion activities, increasing VNĐ870 billion compared to 2021 and double that of 2019.
SABECO said the results were because they have implemented many sale support programmes and marketing activities to promote beer sales. In addition, they have also improved production effectiveness and cost-saving measures to reduce the impacts of increasing input costs.
Earlier, SABECO set targets of VNĐ34.8 trillion in revenue and VNĐ4.6 trillion after-tax profit in 2022; with the results, they surpassed all set targets.
As of December 31, 2022, SABECO’s total assets reached VNĐ34.4 trillion, increasing 13 per cent from the beginning of last year.
