PPL: Lower output and oil prices overshadowed devaluation impact on profitability

October 30, 2019 (MLN): Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PLLS)’s profitability for the quarter ended September 30th 2019 remained flat, as it posted only 4% growth in its net profits after tax to Rs 14.3 billion.

Consequently, the earnings per share stood at Rs 6.33 per share against Rs 6.09 in the same quarter previous year.

 The top-line earning of the company witnessed 9% YoY growth due to 26% devaluation over last year, but lower output and oil prices realized during the period, overshadowed its impact.

Exploration expenses witnessed an increase of 20% which kept the bottom-line in check. Also, other expenses more than doubled to Rs3.56 billion as compared to the previous quarter due to higher provisions booked in the current quarter.

On the other hand, the company’s other income during the period declined by 34%YoY primarily due to absence of any exchange gains during the quarter.
