September 13, 2018 (MLN): Thal Limited’s annual profits for the year ended June 30th 2018, declined from Rs.5.5 billion to Rs.3.5 billion on year-on-year basis.

The Company’s Board of Directors meeting took place earlier today, in which the board reviewed the financial earnings for the year.

As per the report issued to PSX, Thal’s net revenue soared by 12%, however due to higher cost of sales, the gross profits increased by a much smaller margin of 1.4%.

During the year, the company’s overall expenses grew by 1% while non-core income fell by half, from Rs.4.5 billion to Rs.2.25 billion, YoY. This led to a 35% decline in operating profits.
