The results indicate revenue of N10.1billion and Profit Before tax of N938m which represent 11% and 140% increases over the results of same period in 2016.

The increase in revenue during the quarter was due to increase in charter flights and vessel agency operations, which also affected our operating costs increasing by 9% over last year’s result. We have on the other hand been able to contain the administrative expenses during the period by about 61% arising majorly from the impact of the government intervention in stabilizing the foreign exchange rate.

Consequently, the earnings per share increased to 18 kobo from a negative 73 kobo same period last year.

Reacting to the result, the CEO of COSG PLC, Mr. Bode Makanjuola said COSG’s ability to post this impressive result was a result of the shared will and determination of the company’s management with the support of its board of directors to manage our overall expenses while maximizing company revenue potentials.
