The Group posted total reported (consolidated) revenue of THB 31,195mn in FY 2021/22, decreasing by 26.2% YoY or THB 11,055mn from previous year. The reduction in total reported revenue was majorly attributed to lower revenues from (i) contracting works of THB 11,713mn (owing to a decrease in construction revenue for the Pink and Yellow Lines as well as a reduction in services income for the provision of E&M works and the train procurement service for the Green Line extensions as we entered tail-end of development) and (ii) gains on sale of land of THB 1,497mn. Nonetheless, the decrease in the reported revenue was partly offset by (iii) increasing in service and sales income of THB 2,744mn chiefly from consolidation of Fanslink by VGI starting from August 2021 and (iv) higher interest income of THB 522mn.

Total consolidated expense was at THB 22,748mn in FY 2021/22, decreasing by 26.1% YoY or THB 8,041mn largely from lower recognition of cost related to the construction revenue for the Pink and Yellow Lines and the provision of E&M works and the train procurement service for the abovementioned Green Line Extensions. This was partially offset with higher costs of services and sales, following the consolidation of Fanslink aforementioned.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS FY 2021/22

30 May 2022

(Year Ended 31 March 2022)

Share of loss from investments in associates/JVs was THB 131mn (compared to reported share of loss of THB 1,664mn in FY 2020/21). A narrower share of loss of THB 1,533mn was driven by (i) a turnaround from share of loss to share of profit from our investment in U City, which resulted from an improved operational performance, an unrealised gain from U City’s recognition of its investment in Jaymart in December 2021, as well as a lower impairment of U City’s assets and

  1. lower share of loss from investment in MACO. However, this was partially offset by (iii) the downturn to share of loss from investment in Kerry (versus share of profit in the prior year) as a result of Kerry’s aggressive pricing strategy to maintain its market leadership and no repeat recognition of the extraordinary gain from Kerry’s IPO by VGI of THB 513mn in the previous year and (iv) a record of share of loss from investment in BTSGIF (versus the share of profit in the previous year) due to the impact from the Delta variant to BTSGIF’s performance.

Recurring EBITDA was THB 8,116mn, decreasing by 7.8% YoY or THB 684mn. The Group recorded recurring net profit (after minority interests) of THB 2,782mn, dropping by 25.6% YoY or THB 956mn. This was mainly from (i) higher finance costs which rose THB 710mn or 28.3% YoY to THB 3,220mn mainly from bonds issuance of THB 13,000mn in July 2021 and the drawdown of syndicated loans in relation to the Pink & Yellow Lines , (ii) softer operating performances of MIX and MATCH businesses. This was partially offset by a narrower share of loss from investment in associates/ JVs compared to FY 2020/21.

The Company reported net profit attributable to the equity holders of the Company of THB 3,826mn, declining by 16.4% YoY or THB 751mn mainly from lower recurring net profit and a lower gain from sale of land compared to previous year.

The net profit margin attributable to the equity holders of the Company in FY 2021/22 was 12.3% (compared to 10.8% in FY 2020/21).

Total operating revenue in FY 2021/22 was THB 25,823mn, decreasing by 26.1% YoY or THB 9,115mn. Revenues from the MOVE, MIX and MATCH businesses accounted for 81%, 17% and 3% of total operating revenue, respectively. The decline in operating revenue of THB 10,527mn or 33.5% YoY to THB 20,873mn was predominantly due to lower MOVE revenue, chiefly from reduced recognition of services revenue for the provision of E&M works and the train procurement service for the Northern Green Line extension (as we entered the tail-end of development) as well as a lower construction revenue for the Pink and Yellow Lines. Nonetheless, the decline in operating revenue was partly offset by higher MIX revenue and increased O&M revenue.

Total operating costs dropped in line with the decrease in total operating revenue, dropping by THB 8,524mn or 29.8% YoY to THB 20,083mn. The decrease was primarily from lower recognition of construction costs of the Pink and Yellow Lines, and the services cost for the provision of E&M works and the train procurement service for the aforementioned Green Line extensions.

Operating Gross Profit was THB 5,740mn, decreasing by THB 591mn or 9.3% YoY. The operating gross profit margin in FY 2021/22 was 22.2%, increasing from 18.1% in FY 2020/21 due to higher operating gross profit margin from MOVE business.
