After-tax profit and that attributable to the parent company’s shareholders were VND3.2 trillion ($138.1 million) and VND2.6 trillion ($112.2 million), up 30 per cent and 35 per cent, respectively.

The technology sector recorded revenue and pre-tax profit of VND13.4 trillion ($578.3 million) and VND1.5 trillion ($64.7 million), equal to 110 per cent and 104 per cent of the 2018 target and up 21 per cent and 34 per cent year-on-year, respectively.

Software outsourcing recorded revenue of VND8.4 trillion ($262.1 million), up 35 per cent year-on-year. Pre-tax profit was VND1.3 trillion ($56 million), up 27 per cent year-on-year. All market revenues of this segment saw impressive growth, ranging from 23 per cent to 55 per cent year-on-year.

Revenue and pre-tax profit were VND8.3 trillion ($357.7 million) and VND1.1 trillion ($47.4 million), up 16 per cent and 26 per cent year-on-year, respectively, thanks to good business operations and a lower contribution rate to the Vietnam Public Utility Telecommunication Service Fund compared with 2017.
