Earnings Watch: Edita, MNHD, PHD, Emaar Misr report FY2017 results

EARNINGS WATCH- Edita Food Industries reported a 346.8% y-o-y surge in its bottom line to EGP 212.0 mn in 2017, up from EGP 47.4 mn in 2016, the company said in a statement yesterday (pdf). The jump in net profits comes as the company’s revenues for the year rose 21.6% y-o-y to surpass the EGP 3 bn mark in 2016. “The results speak for themselves, with double-digit revenue growth and healthy margins despite operating in an extremely inflationary environment characterized by diminishing consumer purchasing power,” Edita chief Hani Berzi said. After launching several new products last year and inaugurating its state-of-the-art E08 factory with new production lines, the company plans to focus during the coming period “on driving up volumes while also maintaining an emphasis on margin and cost-cutting initiatives.” Read Edita’s full earnings release here (pdf).
