AI confident that net profit this year will grow by 200% driven by strong performance from subsidiary AIE and AI’s earlier investments that are expected to help lower costs by 20%. Revenue this year is expected to hit its target of Bt9bn. (Kao Hoon, 23/01/15)
Comment: These are impressive numbers come out of AI, I’m not sure why at the moment.
AIE expects revenue to jump to Bt8bn this year due to strong flow of orders. It said that the company’s program to increase efficiency will help lower costs to compensate for the government’s cut in the proportion of biodiesel mixed in oil. (Kao Hoon, 23/01/15)
AJD says 2014 profit jumped, while revenue from its entertainment business in 2015 is expected to increase by 50% driven by subsidiary, Happy Import-Export, which is expected to produce more than 10 TV shows this year for Channel 7. The subsidiary also plans to apply for a license to be able to sell Thai TV shows in China. AJD plans list this company on mai in 2016. (Kao Hoon, 23/01/15)
