Japara Healthcare Ltd reported 21.5% fall in the FY 18 net profit after tax

Weak Performance in FY 18: Japara Healthcare Ltd.’s (ASX: JHC) stock fell 4.4% on August 27, 2018 after the company reported 15.8% fall in FY18 EBITDA to $50.7 million and 21.5% fall in the net profit after tax (NPAT) to $23.3 million.

However, in FY 18, the total revenue increased by 3% to $373.2 million. FY 18 proved to be a challenging year for the company, and the earnings were affected by occupancy pressures and Government funding cuts, that included the absence of ACFI indexation.

The group did witness better occupancy in second half of year, and developments such as Noosa Brownfields (about 12 new places) were opened. Despite the challenges, the group has been investing in business with acquisitions such as Riviera Health portfolio. JHC now expects 5% to 10% growth in FY19 EBITDA over FY18.

JHC stock has fallen 1.09% in three months as on August 24, 2018 and is trading at a P/E of 18.92x.
