SCG reported its operating results for Q1/2022, demonstrating a solid performance with strategies to deal with soaring energy and raw materials costs.
SCG’s unreviewed operating results for Q1/2022 registered revenue from sales of VND108.9 trillion (US$4.6 billion), an increase of 7 percent q-o-q, due to higher sales across all businesses. Meanwhile, profit for the period reached VND6.3 trillion (US$268 million), an increase of 6 percent q-o-q, largely owing to the improved business performance of cement-building materials business and higher non-chemical equity income (agricultural machinery business).
On a y-o-y basis, revenue from sales increased 25 percent from higher sales revenue across all businesses mainly from higher product prices in-line with the market. However, profit for the period fell by 41 percent, mainly due to rising feedstock costs from chemicals business in Q1/2022, along with the fact that the chemicals industry had better performance in Q1/2021 compared to normal business operations from winter freeze which caused supply shortage in the United States.
