HCMC – Local tra fish exporter Nam Viet Corporation (Navico) will contribute an additional VND38 billion to collagen manufacturer Amicogen Nam Viet Co., Ltd.
Navico has announced its board of directors’ resolution about the capital contribution.
Amicogen Nam Viet Company was established in March 2020 with charter capital of VND46.48 billion, with Navico holding a 50% stake. This is a joint-venture project between Navico and South Korea’s biotechnology company Amicogen.
In late 2021, Navico broke ground on the joint-venture project to build a collagen peptide and gelatin processing plant in Thot Not Industrial Zone in Can Tho City. The plant is expected to produce 800 tons of collagen and gelatin products per year meeting South Korea’s standards.
In the second quarter of 2022, Navico booked over VND1.2 trillion in net revenue and VND241 billion in after-tax profit, up 20% and 914% year-on-year, respectively.
During the first half of the year, Navico saw its net revenue soaring 41% against the same period last year at VND2.513 trillion, mainly from tra fish sales. Besides, its after-tax profit in the six-month period increased fivefold versus the 2021 figure at VND447 billion, meeting 51% of its 2022 profit target.
