The Kingsbury PLC, the owners of The Kingsbury Hotel in Colombo, saw its September quarter (2Q18) earnings falling 35 percent year-on-year (YoY) to Rs.77.5 million, the interim financial accounts released to the Colombo bourse showed.


The earnings per share for the quarter stood at 32 cents, down from 49 cents YoY.


The hotel company’s top line grew 6 percent YoY to Rs.835.7 million. But cost of sales, which rose 14 percent YoY to Rs.401.4 million, undermined the top line gains.


The operating profit for the quarter fell 31 percent YoY to Rs.102.3 million over higher administration expenses.

Meanwhile, for the six months ended September 30, 2017, the hotel company reported earnings of 66 cents a share or Rs.51 million, down 68 percent YoY.
