Stanley Brothers Securities Incorporation (SBSI) forecast that APH’s business results in the second half of the year will continue to grow despite the complicated developments of the Covid-19 epidemic with two main motivations. Firstly, the industrial real estate segment resumed growth thanks to the remaining revenue of An Phat Complex while An Phat 1 IP project will start commercial exploitation from the third and fourth quarters. Secondly, the production of plastic packaging continued to increase thanks to the increase in exports to the US market and the contribution from An Vinh Packaging’s jumbo bags segment.

Accordingly, Actis invested more than USD 20 million in An Phat 1 Industrial Park to own 49% of the shares.
