  1. Some of what’s written in this article contradict each other.

    For example; it’s stated that INTERNATIONAL BREWERIES has a loss before tax of ₦3.1 Billion in 2017. It’s also stated that it has a profit after tax of ₦1.7 Billion in the same year.

    • Hi Brian, International Breweries had a deferred tax of 4,758,820, an Income Tax Expense of (129,884), and a Loss before Tax of (3,199,617). If you subtract the Income Tax Expense and Loss Before Tax, you get a Profit After Tax of 1,429,319. Note: All figures are in Billions. I hope this better explain it to you.
