• Semi-sensitive product.VKC mainly provides fiber optic cables for the household line segment. As holding a special segment and being the priority distributor for many big groups, VKC has many advantages to expand market share.
• Benefiting from the low maintenance of copper price. Copper is the core input material in the production process of VKC (account for 65% of the products’ cost). VKC keeps up with the long term copper import contracts (related to LME copper price). We expect in the next 5 years, the copper price will slightly increase but remains at a low level. With positive operating result and significant business outlook, we brightly believe that VKC will complete the planwith revenue of 1,210 billion VND and profit aftertax of 45 billion VND (EPS = 2,250 VND/share).
