Chow Tai Fook reports the highest annual profit since 2014. Earlier this week, it said that the net profit surged to HK$6.03 billion ($777 million) from HK$2.9 billion in fiscal 2020. That compared to a forecast of HK$5.23 billion profit by 14 analysts, Refinitiv SmartEstimate data showed.

Revenue for the year to March 31 rose 23.6% to HK$70.16 billion from HK$56.75 billion a year earlier, driven by retail expansion amid improving consumer sentiment in mainland China and a softer gold price in the second half of the fiscal year.

A COVID-19 related rent concession amounted to HK$127.6 million as compared to HK$16.2 million in fiscal 2020, while net foreign exchange gain amounted to HK$336.4 million against HK$234 million loss in a year ago period. 

“As we are optimistic about the mid- to long-term growth in the mainland China market, we will focus on our mainland China’s business development in the coming future,” Chairman Henry Cheng said in a statement to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

“We will continue our retail expansion strategy through penetrating into lower tier cities and leveraging franchisees’ local knowledge,” he added.

The retail network expanded to 4,591 point-of-sales (POS) by the end of March, with a net addition of 741 POS. The company plans to add at least 700 POS in mainland China in fiscal 2022 but may close 10-15 POS in Hong Kong and Macau.

Same-store sales surged 31.9% in mainland China but plunged 41.3% in Hong Kong and Macau as major border crossings remained closed during the period.
