KAPCO’s earnings jump by 80% during FY20 despite lower revenues

September 18, 2020: Kot Addu Power Company (KAPCO) has announced earnings of Rs. 23.6 billion (EPS: 26.83) for FY20, i.e. a whopping 80% higher than the profits recorded in last year.

It is interesting to note that the profitability showed a commendable growth despite lower revenues, which fell by 16% on the back of lower power generation as well as drop in the prices of FO and LNG. Nonetheless, the 29% decline in cost of sales due helping in lifting the gross profits by 51%.

The other income of the company surged by 51% owing to increase in over-due receivables.

The finance cost remained somewhat the same as it changed by merely 1.8%, due to consistent curtailment in interest rates throughout the latter half of the year as well as decline in short term borrowings.
