Imaflex has reported a revenue of C$24.49m ($18.05m) in the second quarter (Q2) of 2023, a decline of 23.7% from C$32.12m in the same period of the prior year.
The company said this decrease in revenue was due to lower volumes and reduced selling prices, mainly from passthrough of decline in resin costs and competitive pricing environment, partly offset by favourable year-over-year foreign exchange movements.
For the quarter, which ended on 30 June 2023, the net income stood at C$0.43m in Q2 2023, a decline of 87.2% from C$3.41m in Q2 last year.
This year-over-year decline in net income has been attributed to higher selling and administrative expenses, foreign exchange losses as well as lower 2023 gross profit.
The basic and diluted earnings per share was C$0.01, down by 85.7% from C$0.07 in Q2 2022.
The company’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation stood at C$1.68m in Q2 2023 down by 67% from C$5.12m in the previous year’s Q2.
