In the second quarter alone, Hoa Phat’s revenue hit over VND14.4 trillion (over US$621.5 million), while its post-tax profit stood at VND2.2 trillion (US$94.9 million), a respective 34% and 43% higher than those of the corresponding period last year.
The firm produced 1.1 million tonnes of construction steel in the first six months, a slight increase from the same period last year.
