HÀ NỘI — Military-run telecom giant Viettel plans to divest an 11 per cent stake in its affiliate Viettel Construction Joint Stock Corporation (CTR) via a public auction at the Hà Nội Stock Exchange on December 7.
The offered stake is equivalent to 7.7 million shares at CTR.
The starting price for CTR is VNĐ43,100 (US$1.85) per share, 10 per cent lower than the current market price.
If the auction is successful, Viettel will reduce its ownership in CTR from 73.22 per cent to 52.22 per cent.
CTR is trading on UPCoM, with a market price of more than VNĐ51,400 and market capitalisation of nearly VNĐ3 trillion.
The firm is the largest operator of the infrastructure network in Việt Nam. In 2019, while other units in the industry had declining business results, CTR grew thanks to the promotion of construction activities.
In the first nine months, CTR’s revenue and post-tax profit reached VNĐ4.2 trillion and VNĐ168 billion, respectively, up 15 per cent and 35 per cent from the same period in 2019. With this result, CTR has fulfilled 85 per cent of its profit plan.
According to the company’s plan by 2025, CTR’s revenue will reach VNĐ11.5 trillion and profit will total VNĐ518 billion.
Last year’s consolidated revenue and post-tax profit reached VNĐ5 trillion and VNĐ181 billion, respectively, up 18 per cent and 23 per cent year-on-year.
