Guinness Nigeria, a leading beverage and alcohol Company in Nigeria, records N1.2bn revenues in Q3 of 2018. This shows that things have been rosy for them.

Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), in an unaudited result its first quarter which  ended 30 September 2018, released the profit before tax which increased to N1.2bn.

Besides, the company’s net sales declined by 6% in three months.

This is as a result driven by increased competition in the worth of beer segment, that more than offset growth across the rest of the business.

The gross profit degenerated by 12% as a result of inflation pressure on our raw material costs.

Inflation pressure on our raw material costs and volume drops both gross profit and operating profit.
