- CAC 2000 LTD reported a net profit of $7.24Mn (EPS: $0.06) for the nine months ended July 31, 2020, compared to a net loss of $39.47Mn (EPS: -$0.31) made in the corresponding period in 2019.
- The improvement in the bottom-line was supported by an 8% (or $190.54Mn) increase in revenue, coupled with a 3.6% (or $11.18Mn) reduction in administration and other expenses.
- However, this outturn was tempered by the 22.2% (or $110.76Mn) increase in direct costs and a 95.0% (or $44.84Mn) fall in other income.
- Management noted that the company is managing and even pivoting to build on new growth opportunities despite the COVID-19 pandemic. This was evident in the realization of the highest quarterly revenues for this financial year, the reduction in operational expenses, and efforts to drive down inventories.
