HÀ NỘI — The construction conglomerate Coteccons Construction Joint Stock Company (Coteccons) expects its year revenue to fall 5 per cent year-on-year to VNĐ27 trillion (US$1.2 billion) this year.
The company expects profit to decrease by 14 per cent against 2018, at VNĐ1.3 trillion.
In the second quarter of 2019, Coteccons's net revenue hit VNĐ5.8 trillion, down 30 per cent over the same period last year. Cost of goods sold accounted for nearly 97 per cent in net revenue so the company recorded only nearly VNĐ184 billion in gross profit, down 67 per cent compared to 2018.
In the period, revenue from financial activities reached nearly VNĐ72 billion, with a major part from bank deposits.
After deducting expenses, post-tax profit in Q2 only touched VNĐ124 billion, down by 71 per cent year-on-year. This is the lowest quarterly profit that Coteccons has recorded since the first quarter of 2015.
In the first six months of 2019, net revenue of Coteccons was estimated at VNĐ10 trillion, down by 20 per cent year-on-year. Post-tax profit stood at VNĐ312.6 billion, down by more than half compared to that recorded in the first half of 2018.
As of the end of June this year, Coteccons's total assets totalled more than VNĐ15.5 trillion, down VNĐ1.2 trillion compared to the beginning of the year, mainly due to a reduction of short-term receivables.
Total liabilities reached nearly VNĐ7.6 trillion, down by VNĐ1.3 trillion compared to the beginning of the year. Equity touched VNĐ8 billion.
Recently, KIM Việt Nam Growth Equity Fund has purchased 260,000 shares of Coteccons, thereby raising the ownership of the Korean fund group in Coteccons from 7.68 per cent to 8.02 per cent. VOF Investment Limited Fund, managed by Vinapital, has also bought an additional 50,000 shares to increase its holding to 7 per cent.
