Petronas Dagangan catat untung bersih lebih rendah

KUALA LUMPUR: Keuntungan bersih Petronas Dagangan Bhd merosot kepada RM212.66 juta bagi suku ketiga yang berakhir 30 September 2020 daripada RM239.00 juta yang direkodkan pada suku yang sama tahun lalu.

Pendapatan berkurangan kepada RM4.83 bilion berbanding RM7.80 bilion manakala pendapatan asas sesahamnya turun kepada 21.40 sen berbanding 24.10 sen.

Mengulas mengenai prestasi syarikat, Pengarah Urusan dan Ketua Pegawai Eksekutifnya, Azrul Osman Rani berkata syarikat itu menjangkakan wujud sedikit impak kepada volum pada suku akan datang berikutan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Bersyarat (PKPB) yang dilaksanakan di kebanyakan negeri.

“Memandangkan pandemik ini akan kekal menjadi cabaran yang berterusan, kami telah mempercepatkan kepelbagaian portfolio produk agar perniagaan terus bertahan,” katanya dalam kenyataan hari ini. – Berita Harian
