The company reported profit after tax of $167 million for the September quarter, up from just $170,000 for the 2017 period and $252 million up from $112 million for the nine months to September 2017.
The company sold off the spread business line and realised a gain of $161 million, it also sold fixed assets that realised gains of $3.5 million in the quarter. Excluding these gains, profit would be just $2 million for the quarter but a big improvement over the amount earned in 2017.

Revenues fell 16 percent for the year to date, to $294 million from $350 million in 2017.

Administrative expenses were flat at $5.6 million for the quarter and fell 19 percent in the nine months to $18 million. Marketing and sales expenses declined by 37 percent to $19 million in the quarter and 21 percent to $74 million for the nine months.
Revenues reached a high of $588 million in 2014, dipped to $549 million in 2015, recovered a bit in 2016 to $566 million before falling sharply in 2017. Profit peaked at $70 million in 2013 dropped sharply in 2014 to just over $47 million in 2015 and $42.5 in 2016 and declined to $10.5 million in 2017.
