Based on the company’s net margin target of 37.5 percent and the projected revenues of P13.5 billion, full-year net profit will reach P5.06 billion, up by 8.35 percent from the bottom line last year. In the first semester, 8990 Holdings posted P2.82 billion in net profit compared to P2.39 billion the previous year.
