For 4Q18, AusGroup has reported net profit after tax of AU$2.7m. up 16.3% y-o-y.

The result would have been significantly stronger if not for non-cash impairments of AU$14.8m, primarily to reduce the carrying value of the Group’s scaffolding asset base following completion of major project work as well as some restructuring provisions.

Operationally, AusGroup core projects in the energy and mineral process sectors were robust. 

The debt servicing levels have continued to decrease over FY2018 with the Q4 FY2018 finance cost of AU$2.3m increasing the overall finance costs to AU$11.7m, a reduction of 31.7% compared to FY2017, mainly due to the repayment of loan facilities and the successful debt to equity conversion completed in Q2 FY2018.

For the first time in five years AusGroup’s net profit after tax has been greater than the financing costs for the financial year.
