FrieslandCampina lands into losses on account of hefty increase in financial cost

February 7, 2020 (MLN): FrieslandCampina Engro Pakistan Limited (FCEPL) has unveiled its financial performance for the year ended December 2019 wherein the company reported net losses of Rs 1.1 million against the profits of Rs 63,783 earned last year. This translated into loss per share which clocked in at Rs 1.25 per share.  

Sharp economic headwinds, particularly steep increases in commodity costs due to devaluation of Rupee and rising interest rates have put pressure on the overall company’s profitability. As a result, gross margins reduced from 16% to 13%.  

With regards to the company’s major expense heads, admin expenses surged by 30% YoY, while other expenses rose by 128% YoY.

During the year, the company also received tax incentives of Rs 144,490 which was down by 38% YoY, still, it failed to mark any significant improvement in reducing its losses as the company witnessed a considerable increase in its finance cost by 80%YoY.
