Summary of Operating Results of the Group
The summary of operating result for Q3/2020 improved from Q2/2020 and Q3/2019 with lower loss. Revenues in Q3/2020 amounted to Baht 1,698 million, increasing by Baht 151 million or 9.8% QoQ, but decreasing by Baht 354 million or 17.3% YoY due to relaxed restrictions and disease control measures of Covid-19. The Covid-19 pandemic has ravaged the global economy causing many businesses closures and increasing unemployment. Although, certain disease control measures have been eased in Q3/2020, people are still concerned and cautious of spending. As a result, sales of household and industrial products of both domestic and overseas operations decreased from the previous year, but increased from Q2/2020.
Gross profit in Q3/2020 amounted to Baht 164 million, increasing by Baht 35 million or 27.1% QoQ, but decreasing by Baht 29 million or 15.0% YoY. Gross profit margin accounted for 9.7%, which increased from 8.4% in Q2/2020 and 9.4% in Q3/2019. Increase in gross profit margin resulted from the Group restructuring, the improvement of production efficiency, the reduction of personnel appropriate for production utilization and organization size, and the lower price of main raw materials.
