ThaiBev's profit plummeted 46% to $77m in FY2018

Its beer business was struck with a 10.4% net profit fall to $116.71m.

Thai Beverage’s (ThaiBev) full year profits almost halved (46%) YoY to $77m (THB18.53b) in FY2018 from $144b (THB34.51b) in FY 2017, an announcement revealed. This is despite a revenue increase of 21% YoY to $9.56b (THB229.7b).

In its spirit business, net profit went down 13.2% to $737.31m (THB17.72b) dragged by the decrease in EBITDA. Meanwhile, its beer business suffered from a net profit decrease of 10.4% to $116.71m (THB2.81b) mainly due to an increase in finance costs, although there was an increase in EBITDA.

The firm also revealed that its non-alcoholic beverages business saw a net loss of $51.76m (THB1.2b) due to an increase in EBITDA loss. On the other hand, its food business saw its net profit skyrocket 432.7% to $23.05m (THB554m).
