WHAUP reported a net profit of THB735.5 million in 2021, decreasing by 9.5% from THB812.7 million in 2020. The decrease was mainly from 1) share of profit and dividend income from investments decreased by THB548.9 million which was mainly due to unrealized loss on foreign exchange rate from USD loans of associate and joint ventures, up by THB473.0 million from the same period last year, and decreased normalized share of profit and dividend income from investments which excluded the impact of foreign exchange, down by THB75.9 million YoY. The decrease was mainly explained by increasing share of loss from SDWTP and GHECO-One’s planned and unplanned maintenance. 2) Loss from revalue investment amounted to THB20.7 million, due to a decrease in fair value of GIPP in 2021.
Total revenue was THB2,180.8 million, increasing by 28.4% from THB1,698.0 million in 2020 due to strong growth in operating revenue of utilities business and power businesses (+17.5% YoY and +335.5% YoY, respectively).
