HÀ NỘI – PetroVietnam Mud Drilling Corporation has reported its Q2 revenue dropped 34 per cent year-on-year to VNĐ413 billion (US$17.76 million).
However, as gross profit gained 22 per cent year-on-year to VNĐ63 billion, the company recorded VNĐ16 billion in Q2 post-tax profit, almost double last year’s figure.
According to the company, sales of drilling liquid increased and helped boost gross profit. Meanwhile, the decline of revenue came after the firm shut down its plastic bead business.

The company saw its net profit reach VNĐ20.6 billion from last year’s two-quarter loss of VNĐ6.6 billion.
In 2019, the firm targets to record VNĐ1.96 trillion in total revenue and VNĐ170 million in post-tax profit.
By June 30, total assets reached VNĐ1.88 trillion, which included VNĐ866 billion worth of collectables, VNĐ350 billion worth of cash and savings, and VNĐ337 billion worth of stockpiles.
The company saw its short-term loans and financial debts fall to VNĐ398 billion in the first half of the year from VNĐ603 billion at the beginning of January.
