GVR: Net profit in 2023 declines by 33% compared to the previous year.

GVR has announced its Q4 2023 financial report, showing a 19% increase in net profit compared to the same period last year. The standout performance came from its financial activities, which brought in a profit of 220 billion VND, 11 times higher than the previous year. With a strong finish in the fourth quarter, GVR has successfully achieved its profit target for 2023.


In Q4, the net revenue of Vietnam Rubber Industry Group – JSC (HOSE: GVR) amounted to over 7.591 trillion VND, a decrease of 17% compared to the same period last year.

The main contribution still came from the production and sale of rubber latex, reaching over 6.065 trillion VND, accounting for 80% of the revenue. However, this business activity faced difficulties with a 20% decrease compared to the same period last year. In addition to rubber latex, the wood processing activity also decreased by 21%, amounting to over 660 billion VND, accounting for 9% of the revenue.

After deducting the cost of goods sold, GVR achieved a gross profit of 1.603 trillion VND, a decrease of 14%, thanks to a slight improvement in gross profit margin of 0.6 percentage points, reaching 21%.

The financial activities stood out as they generated a profit of 220 billion VND, 11 times higher than the same period last year. This was mainly due to a significant increase in interest income from deposits and loans, while interest expense decreased and provision for impairment of investment was reduced. In addition, GVR also achieved higher other profits, which increased by 17% to 649 billion VND, thanks to cost cutting measures.

The SG&A expense-to-net revenue ratio increased by 3 percentage points, reaching 11.7%, due to the impact of a 18% increase in management expenses, putting some pressure on profitability.

Finally, GVR achieved a net profit of 1.164 trillion VND in the fourth quarter, an increase of 19%. For the whole year, GVR achieved a net revenue of 22.080 trillion VND, a decrease of 13% compared to the previous year, and a net profit of 2.585 trillion VND, a decrease of 33%.

Considering the adjusted after-tax profit target of 3.363 trillion VND (reduced due to difficult business conditions), GVR timely completed the profit plan set forth.
