7-Eleven pulls in P648.3M profit

/ 05:55 AM November 11, 2017

The country’s leading convenience store operator Philippine Seven Corp. (PSC) chalked up P648.3 million in net profit at end September, up by 0.8 percent year-on-year, as same-store sales rebounded in the third quarter.

PSC, the local licensee of the 7-Eleven convenience store chain, grew net income by 18 percent year-on-year to P201.9 million in the third quarter alone.

Same store sales grew by 4.1 percent year-on-year during the third quarter, improving from the decline of 4.4 percent in the first quarter and the modest growth of 1.2 percent in the second quarter.  This brought year-to-date same-store sales growth to 0.1 percent, despite coming from a high base in 2016, during which consumer spending got an extraordinary boost from the presidential election campaign.
