CTS Global FY23 profit: P23-M (down 56%)

CTS Global [CTS 0.71 unch; 5% avgVol] [link] posted a FY23 net income of P23 million, down 56% from the P52 million it reported in FY22. CTS said that its total revenues increased 18% to P103.7 million, driven by interest income from its low-yield government bonds. CTS booked P0.5 million in combined trading revenue from its global and local trading desks, down 98% from the P32.5 it earned the previous year. Domestically, CTS earned P20.6 million in income, down 20% from the previous year’s P25.9 million. Internationally, CTS lost P20.1 million, down 404% from the previous year’s P6.6 million. CTS blamed its poor trading performance on the “broad equity weakness” that resulted from “the US Fed’s stance to keep interest rates higher for longer to combat inflation and among other various events that introduced uncertainty into the markets.” CTS also noted “elevated geopolitical tensions”, “erratic adjustments to interest rates across major economies”, and “persistent volatility in commodity prices” as drivers of the “tumultuous conditions” that made trading operations difficult.
