HCMC – Phu Nhuan Jewelry Joint Stock Company (PNJ) looks to obtain around VND36.6 trillion in revenue and over VND1.9 trillion in profit after tax this year, up 5% and 7% against 2022.
The firm has posted a 1% year-on-year drop in revenue in the first two months of the year, at nearly VND7 trillion, but its after-tax profit inched up 6% in the period, at VND556 billion.
Its February revenue plunged by 21% against the year-ago figure, at VND2,848 billion, while its after-tax profit edged up 1% to VND255 billion.
It said macroeconomic volatility in the months had weakened consumer demand, coupled with a high base in the same period last year, leading to a slowdown in profit growth.
Last year the firm reported a year-on-year surge of 73% in revenue and 76% in net profit, at over VND33.8 trillion and VND1.8 trillion, respectively. The figures were by far the highest of any year since its establishment.
