ISM Communications: A Company Without Revenues
For the year 2017, ISM did not generate any revenues. The same situation happened in 2016.
However, the company is still incurring expenses resulting in losses.
The company booked a net loss of PHP 269.8 million in 2017. This figure is twenty folds higher than the PHP 13.3 million loss recorded in 2016.
Nonetheless, net income attributable to parent stood at PHP 43.77 million, which is slightly lower than the PHP 55.15 million recorded in 2016.
Same Old Story
For 2018, the company still does not have any revenues during the first half. The company recorded a net loss of PHP 19.79 million lower, compared to the loss of PHP 32.18 million in 2016.
The figure was mainly due to lower losses from other records — totaling to PHP 7.41 million. With the company’s state, this is better than the PHP 19.89 million net loss recorded in 2016.
The Strength of the Balance Sheet
If the income statement appears to be ugly, ISM still has a solid balance sheet. The company has total assets of PHP 1.86 billion, and of this number, PHP 1.17 billion is current.
Additionally, the company appears to have no liabilities. Thus, its equity is almost equal to its total assets.
From its equity, the company also has a strong retained earnings at PHP 816 million as of June 2018. The figure is enough buffer to absorb the company losses.
