With nothing new released to the market today, let’s look at the energy company’s half-year (1H21) report released after the close of trade on Friday to see what might be moving the TPC share price today.

Half-year financial highlights

Looking ahead

In its half-year report, the company released the following statements regarding its outlook.

The half-year started off being especially uncertain with the onset of COVID-19. We were monitoring business activities both internally and externally carefully. Our main concern was the ability of our customers to continue to pay their energy bills in light of business closures and employment uncertainties.

We are pleased to report that, as a result of our diligence, the net impact was manageable although we continue to be cautious until full return to normalcy; post-COVID-19 environment.

TPC further noted that the company continued to make headway in the renewable energies market. It expects to share its progress with the market later this year.

Revenues and earnings are both believed to be on track to meet investor expectations.
