ThaiBev's Q3 profit plunged 61% to $247.72m

Blame weak performance from the spirit, non-alcoholic and food business.

Crippling market conditions continued to weigh in on ThaiBev after profit plunged by 61% YoY to $247.72m (THB5.99b) in Q3, according to its financial statement.

Earnings in the spirit business fell 15.6% to $166.09m (THB4,016m) on the back of lower sales revenue.

ThaiBev’s earnings from the non-alcoholic beverages segment also crashed 33% to $11.82m (THB$286m). The company’s food business segment also posted flat earnings at $1.32m (THB32m).

Profit from its stake in Fraser & Neave and Frasers Property also plummeted by 80.9%.

The company was also hit by the lack of a recognition of a fair value gain on a financial asset of $351.34m (THB8.5b) in Q3.

However, ThaiBev’s beer business performed strongly on the back of stronger Sabeco beer sales with profits surging 66% YoY to $41.58m (THB1,006m).
