Transcorp’s Profit Leaps 147% In Solid Q1 Performance

Transnational Corporation Plc, (Transcorp Group), a conglomerate with interests in the power, hospitality, and energy sectors has reported a profit after tax of N5.0bn rising significantly by 147 per cent up from N2.0bn recorded in March 2021.

In its first quarter ended March 31, 2022 report, the fast-growing octopus reported significant and impressive returns in all its major financial indices.

Its unaudited results filed with the Nigeria Exchange Limited showed that it paid N700 million in tax to the government in the same period.

A further look at the results showed that revenue increased by 28 per cent from N24.4 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2021; to N31.4 billion as of March 2022, while operating income followed the same pattern as it grew by 45 per cent to N10.0 billion up from N6.9 billion reported the previous year.

An increase in expenses such as Inventories, prepayments, trade and other receivables, however, did not dampen the Group’s total assets which rose to N417 billion in the period under review, up from N416 billion recorded at the end of the 2021 financial year; just shareholders’ funds also rose by 3 per cent to N151 billion, up from N146.3 billion.

An elated Owen Omogiafo, Transcorp’s President, described the result as a great start to a rewarding year, expressing satisfaction with the performance for the first quarter of 2022, and noted that the result is in line with the group’s strategy.

She stated “This laudable performance was achieved as a result of the improved activities across all our businesses. We are excited with the results for the first quarter of 2022; delivering a 28 per cent rise in revenue and a 129 per cent rise in Profit Before Tax, and we are confident in the strategic direction for the Group as it underlines the success of our long-term objectives of diversifying revenues and accessing new business opportunities to deliver superior values to all our stakeholders.”

Omogiafo re-emphasised the brand’s commitment towards producing long-term value and sustainable impact, adding that already, this has been evident from the results churned out by the business in the full year 2021, and Q1 2022, despite the unstable operating environment, adding, “We will continue to work diligently as we remain well-positioned to provide significant value for our stakeholders.”
