Several significant factors have influenced the group’s H1 1999 net profit:
- active realization of inventories to increase liquidity (reflected on the
income statement account of “change in inventories”, which totaled last year
18.7 million EEK, incl. change in inventories of goods produced 14.3 million EEK).
The company had 1.3 million EEK loss from realization of inventories.
- decrease in sales of coat producer AS Virulane in Q2 due to seasonal nature
of business (Q1 net turnover 12.9 million EEK, Q2 net turnover 6 million EEK),
as a result of which AS Virulane had 0.9 million EEK loss in H1 (H1 1998 loss
0.4 million EEK).
- changes in the company’s structure have increased the personnel expenses by
14.3 million EEK (in 1999, addition of personnel expenses of AS Virulane ja
AS Elina STC of 11.7 and 5.0 million EEK, respectively); compared to the same
figures in 1998, the parent company’s personnel expenses decreased by 1.0 million
EEK (27.1 million EEK in 1999 and 28.1 million EEK in 1998).
