The Corporate Travel share price is on investors’ radars today as the ASX 200 travel share prepares to release its full 2021 financial year results tomorrow.
With that in mind, we take a look back to August 2020 to see how shares performed following the release of last year’s financial results.
What results did Corporate Travel report in FY20?
Corporate Travel’s share price closed down 1.8% on 19 August 2020, after the company reported an $8.2 million loss for FY20.
Shares, as we’ll look at shortly, rebounded rapidly over the following weeks.
First, here’s a snapshot of the FY20 results:
Earnings before income, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of $65 million
Underlying net profit after taxes (NPAT) of $32 million
Statutory loss of $8.2 million
$60 million cash net of client cash and creditors
The ASX 200 travel share saw its revenues dry up in the second half of FY20 in the wake of COVID-19 border closures and lockdowns. It refocused on the domestic market and moved rapidly to reduce costs.
In the fourth quarter it saw revenues lift as it catered to travellers in the essential services sectors, who were permitted interstate travel.
The company cancelled its deferred interim dividend.
