Coteccons works tirelessly to achieve its goal of becoming a world-class business. In addition to financial objectives such as reaching a market capitalization of USD 1 billion, the Company pursues non-financial objectives such as creating a humane working environment, raising construction standards, making positive contributions to the construction industry, and effectively implementing the sustainable development strategy… Coteccons has the basis and potential to accomplish that objective, in terms of strategic vision, people, technology, and financing.

Coteccons’ Board of Directors comprehensively delivered 2022 outcomes, 2023 targets, and certain long-term orientations with a lot of attractive information.

Regarding the 2022 outcomes, Coteccons has successfully accomplished all targets and tasks. Specifically, sales reached VND 14,537 billion, an increase of more than 60% compared to the previous year. Profit before tax and profit after tax reached nearly VND 35 billion and VND 21 billion respectively (105% of the target). If provision expenses are eliminated, profit before tax can exceed 300 billion dong. These are very positive results in the context of an extremely challenging macroeconomic and construction industry in the past year, which shows the rapid and strong recovery of Coteccons after comprehensive restructuring and the implementation of a new development strategy.

In addition to the financial results, the Board of Directors of Coteccons affirmed that the more remarkable achievements in the year were the real stability in the organizational structure, the strong recovery in brand reputation and solid capacity. in expanding markets, approaching new customer files, so as to achieve a clear upgrade in internal resources, systems – operating processes, corporate culture… in the direction of transparency and professionalism.

Coteccons, on the other hand, provides a solid foundation for establishing this exceptional growth ambition.

In particular, the roadmap 2021 – 2025 is being implemented very effectively. The Board of Directors of Coteccons will continue to review, re-evaluate and adjust each specific target to match actual developments. However, the orientation towards diversifying products and services and building an excellent and sustainable business has always been consistently implemented.
