NCR (Nigeria) Plc, a technology company that provides integrated technology solutions and after-sales support to businesses, reported a 16.16 percent decline in profit after tax to N17.436 million in the first half (H1) of 2021, down from N20.797 million recorded in the first half of 2020 when COVID-19 was at its peak.

In the unaudited financial statement released on Tuesday, NCR (Nigeria) revenue from contracts with customers dipped by 51.77 percent from N2.927 billion filed in the corresponding period of 2020 to N1.412 billion in the period under review.

The decrease recorded in cost of sales due to the drop in revenue help bolstered gross profit by 47.97 percent to N311.152 million, up from N210.286 million recorded in the same period of 2020.

As expected, distribution expenses declined by 44.06 percent from N138.042 million in H1 2020 to N77.220 million in H1 2021. However, administrative expenses rose by 8.28 percent to N54.405 million in the period under review, up from N50.246 million filed in the corresponding period of 2020.

Profit before tax moderated by 16.16 percent from N20.797 million in H1 2020 to N17.436 in H1 2021.

Because NCR (Nigeria) did not pay income tax during the period under review, the same amount was recorded as profit after tax.

The company’s total assets decline to N5.907 billion in H1 2021, down from N6.391 billion in H1 2020.

Total equity of the NCR (Nigeria) remains negative at N826.721 million while total equities and liabilities stood at N5.907 billion.

Earnings per share drop from N0.19 in H1 2020 to N0.16 in H1 2021.

Nigerian Stock Market Shed N187 Billion On Tuesday

Nigeria’s equity market decreased by 0.69 percent on Tuesday

stock bear - Investors King

Nigeria’s equity market decreased by 0.69 percent on Tuesday. Driven majorly by increased sell pressure in stocks like NGX Group Plc, Zenith Bank Plc, NPF Microfinance Bank Plc and Livestock Feeds Plc, the stock lost about N187 billion. 

NGX Group was the most affected after its share price dropped from N21 to N20, down by N1 or 4.76percent.

This was followed by Zenith Bank Plc which dropped from N21 to N20.25, down by 75 kobo or 3.57 percent; while NPF Microfinance Bank Plc dipped from N1.66 to N1.53, losing 13 kobo or 7.83 percent.

Sterling Bank, Transcorp, Zenith Bank, GTCO and UBA were the most traded stocks as investors in 4,247 deals exchanged 138,991,046 shares valued at N2.725 billion.

The market’s All-Share Index (ASI) and capitalisation decreased further on Tuesday from the preceding day’s highs of 49,991.41 points and N26.964 trillion respectively to 49,644.92 points and N26.777 trillion.

These drops are a continuation of the wider equity sell-off because of the uncertainty in the market. 

Reacting to this mixed development, an analyst at PAC Holdings, Wole Adeyeye, said some investors migrated from the stock market to the fixed-income market in a move to take advantage of high yields, which was triggered by the recent hike in policy rate. 

He stated further that “ foreign investors avoided the Nigerian stock market due to the upcoming general elections, weak local currency and insecurity in the country.” 

While this trend may likely continue for a couple of months because of the attractiveness of the fixed income market which is expected to remain relatively high and the uncertainty surrounding the economy which has created a degree of fear for investors, the long-term outlook of the equity market looks positive.
