Custodian Investment Plc has declared a Profit After Tax (PAT) of N1.5 billion in the third quarter of 2020, as against N1.37 billion posted the same period in 2019.

This is according to the consolidated financial report of the firm for Q3 2020.

What you should know

The firm recorded impressive results in some key financial metrics such as;

  • Gross Revenue grew by 42% from N15.85 billion to N22.52 billion.
  • Interest income advanced by 11.3% Year-on-Year.

GTBank 728 x 90
  • The growth in revenue and profitability is attributable to an increase in financial and reinsurance assets which appreciated by 35.62% and 32.5% (Y-O-Y) respectively.
  • An increase in investment and interest incomes were also very important in driving revenue.
  • On the contrary, despite recording increased gross revenue, the net profit margin decreased over time, from 23.91% recorded as of Q3 2019 to 5.8% in Q3 2020. Thus, indicating a probability of weak cost control mechanism or that variable values are not well controlled.
  • The Net profit margin indicates that the company earned N0.057K in profit for every N1 it received in revenue as of Q3, 2020. This is lower compared to N0.24k for every N1 it earned in revenue in Q3, 2019.

What this means

The pandemic affected several businesses and sectors, the transportation and logistics sectors were not exempted. The loss might have been largely due to the period of economic inactivity, due to embargo on inter-state and international travels.
