Anta Group Predicted 45% Net Profit Increase For 2019

It is said that during the 2019 financial year, the losses of Mascot JVCo is about CNY650 million, including acquisition-related one-time expense of less than CNY200 million. If taking the losses into consideration, Anta predicted that its net profit growth for 2019 financial year would be no less than 30%.

At the same time, the group's brands like FILA and Descente made more contributions to its retail revenue. With enhanced retail business and stable operating expense ratio, Anta is expecting increased operating margin for 2019.

Anta said that compared with the last financial year, the group's sales maintained a strong growth in 2019 and its annual operating revenue is expected to increase by over 35%.
