The final day of the week ended with some of Australia’s most well-known company’s sending their FY21 numbers out for judgement day. After reporting to the ASX, these three companies were put under the microscope of investors.

We’ll quickly unpack today’s results and then wrap it back up for tomorrow:

Those that delivered today

Cochlear Limited (ASX: COH)

Shares in Cochlear fell 7.43% after the medical device company reported its FY21 full-year results. Despite solid numbers across the board and positive guidance for the year ahead, investors weren’t satisfied.

The takeaway points:

Cochlear implant units up 15% to 36,456
Sales revenue up 10% to $1,493.3 million
Underlying earnings per share up 40% to $3.60
Full year dividend up 59% to $2.55
IT systems upgrade to cost $100‐$120 million over the next four to five years
FY 2022 guidance: Net profit growth of 12% to 20%

Sydney Airport Holdings Pty Ltd (ASX: SYD)

The Sydney Airport share price traded uneventfully after reporting on the ASX its full-year results for FY21. Shares in the airport operator hardly budged, finishing the day down 0.26%.

The takeaway points:

Net loss after tax benefit of $97.4 million. This is up 81.7% on the prior corresponding period’s (pcp) loss. This includes a 36% drop in aeronautical revenue and a 40.6% plunge in retail revenue.
Revenue down 31.3% on the pcp to $351 million.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) of $210.8 million – a 29.8% loss on the pcp.
A negative cash flow of $565.5 million for the 6 months.

TPG Telecom Ltd (ASX: TPG)

TPG shareholders were sent for a wild ride on the ASX on Friday after the telco giant reported its first-half results for FY21. Shares moved upwards at the open before swinging ~7% to the downside. Yet, the company’s shares finished the day only down 0.45%.

The takeaway points:

Revenue increased 71% to $2,630 million
EBITDA up 67% to $886 million
Net profit after tax down 8% to $76 million
Fully franked interim dividend of 8 cents per share
