Furthermore, the gross profit of the company plunged by 9.12% YoY to Rs6.43bn as compared to Rs7.07bn in the corresponding period last year, shrinking gross margins from 7.36% to 6.27% in the said period under review.

On the cost side, the company’s major expense heads i.e., sales and marketing expenses swelled by 12.03% YoY from Rs1.75bn to Rs1.96bn due to full-scale business resumption, spending on marketing campaigns, and inflation. While the administrative costs increased by 4.29% YoY to Rs603mn.

On the tax front, the effective tax rate increased by 34.53% to Rs2.28bn as compared to Rs1.69bn in the same period last year.
