No Sleep For Shareholders As Vitafoam’s Revenue, Profit Declines

Shareholders of Vitafoam would lose sleep over the financials of the company in the second quarter of this year, as Vitaform couldn't generate as revenue as it generated in the corresponding period of 2019. Vitaform's gross profit was also the same story as it nosedived during the same period.

According to the unaudited financial statements of Vitafoam for Q2 this year, the company generated N5 billion revenue, falling short of the N5.9 billion it generated in last year Q2. The company was, however, able to cut its cost of sales to N3 billion in the second quarter of this year.
