Earnings watch: Contact Financial, Beltone, MNHD, NileSat
Contact Financial’s net income rose 65% to EGP 114 mn in 3Q2021 from the same period in 2020, according to the company’s financials (pdf) out yesterday.
The results reflect growth in Contact’s financing business… Contact’s net income from financing across the first nine months of the year rose 60% y-o-y to EGP 343 mn, according to the company’s 9M earnings release (pdf). This was driven by an expansion of its lending portfolio which rose by a third to EGP 9.6 bn. The company attributed the growth to a “widespread rebound” in economic activity, new products and a growth of market share.
…and an easing of losses at its new ins. unit, which delivered a EGP 1.3 mn loss during 9M2021 after landing EGP 12.9 mn in the red last year. Gross written premiums rose 85% to EGP 376 mn.
Coming up: The company will soon roll out its new Contact Pay app which will provide new e-payment and other digital financing services.
