Hong Kong & China Gas Co.'s first-half net profit fell amid a decline in revenue as the retail, restaurant and hospitality sectors were hit hard by Covid-19.
The gas supplier's net profit fell 31% to 2.67 billion Hong Kong dollars (US$344.5 million), it said Monday.
Revenues fell to HK$18.24 billion from HK$20.35 billion in the same period last year.
Hong Kong & China Gas said it expects to record steady full-year growth in Hong Kong customers as the impact of the pandemic gradually eases.
It expects its core utilities business to remain resilient amid the economic downturn, it said.
