HCMC – FPT Digital Retail JSC (FPT Retail) has already attained 71% of its 2024 profit target, with net income reaching VND89 billion in the first quarter of 2024. This figure marks a 43-fold increase over the same period last year.

Its revenue in this period totaled VND9.04 trillion, rising 17% year-on-year. A significant contributor to this success was FPT Long Chau Pharma JSC, a subsidiary of FPT Retail, which accounted for over VND5.5 trillion in revenue, accounting for 61% of the company’s total revenue. This impressive performance reflects a robust growth rate of 68% compared to the first three months of 2023.

Strategic product restructuring initiatives within its retailing chain, particularly at FPT Shop, resulted in a 3% increase in gross profit. Additionally, easier access to low-interest funds facilitated a 50% reduction in financial costs, further bolstering the company’s profitability.

Looking ahead to the full year 2024, FPT Retail sets ambitious targets, aiming to achieve VND37.3 trillion in revenue and VND125 billion in net profit.

The company’s extensive nationwide network comprises 2,381 stores, with FPT Long Chau having 1,587 drugstores in early 2024.
