Fraser & Neave (F&N) has reported earnings of $43.8 million for the 1QFY2024 ended Dec 30, up 52.9% y-o-y.

Earnings per share stood at 3 cents, compared to 2 cents in 1QFY2023.

Revenue for the quarter was marginally lower, down 0.2% compared to the corresponding previous quarter at $531.6 million.

Profit before interest and tax (pbit) for 1QFY2024 was up 41.9% y-o-y to $80.6 million, with pbit margin growing to 15.2% from 10.7% in 1QFY2023.

This is despite unfavourable foreign exchange (forex) translation as well as higher advertising and promotional spending. 

Dairies led the pbit growth, jumping 49% supported by higher revenue, lower input costs and higher profit share from Vinamilk.
