Mega Expo’s Revenues Fall in First Half

March 5, 2018

Last week, Mega Expo, formerly known as Kenfair, a Hong Kong-based exhibition organiser, reported its interim results for the six months ended on 31st December 2017. The company reported revenues of US$9.4 million, down by 20% year-on-year. However, Mega Expo posted a net profit of US$5.8 million in the six-month period, compared with a loss of US$1.5 million in the previous year. Earnings per share for the half year were HK$0.0328 (US$0.0042).

 

More than 75% of Mega Expo’s revenues were generated from its exhibition organising business, amounting US$7.1 million. This represents a decrease of 40% year-on-year. The remaining revenues were generated through its brand management services (US$2.2 million).

 

Mega Expo’s management attributed the drop in revenue to stronger competition, increased costs and fewer growth opportunities in Hong Kong. Management stated its intention to stay focused on its core exhibition in Hong Kong, the Mega Show while exploring opportunities in Mainland China.

Business success — you may think it’s all about the bottom line, but savvy CEOs like those at Apple, Starbucks and IKEA know otherwise. Although profits play a big role, it’s also important for companies to be socially responsible by considering their impact on the environment, their local economy and their customers. One way that companies can practice corporate social responsibility (CSR) is by incorporating it into company events.
