Nishat Chunain reports 13% rise in net earnings during 1HFY20

February 27, 2020 (MLN): Nishat Chunian Power Limited (NCPL) has announced its financial results today, wherein it has reported profits of Rs. 2.09 billion (EPS: Rs. 5.71) for the half year, and Rs. 1.02 billion (EPS: Rs. 2.8) for the quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Even though the company’s topline earnings fell by 8.2% due to lower load factor, the gross earnings managed to rise by 30% owing to the fall in cost of production by 24% during the first six months of Fiscal Year 2020.

Another major highlight from the company’s results was the 91% increase in finance costs, which ensued from increase in interest rates as well as rising demand for working capital.
