Caverton‘s Revenue Down By 8% To N23.6billion In The 3rd Quarter Of The Year

29 JULY 2021 – Caverton Offshore Support Group Plc, the leading provider of marine, aviation and logistics services to local and international oil and gas companies in Nigeria, today announces its unaudited results for the period ended 30th June 2021.

The results show a Profit-Before-Tax of N924Million, (and a Profit-After-Tax of N780Million). This result came even in the face of the serious negative impact that the Covid-19 pandemic continues to have on business operations in Nigeria and the rest of the world, which has caused a significant reduction in activities by International and Local Oil and Gas companies who are the major clients of Caverton.

Commenting on the results, Caverton’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Bode Makanjuola, said that,

“The result shows our continued determination to re-focus our operations in the face of the challenging economic conditions, to ensure continued business survival and profitability. To boost revenue, the marine service sector of the Group has also been restrategizing to position the company towards exploring further opportunities within and outside the oil and gas sector”.

He further stated that

“Our Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility and our Simulator Training facility, both in Lagos, have officially commenced business operations in the 2nd half of 2021. This heralds a new age in the Nigerian aviation sector and a better fortune for the Group. As expected with new projects, the income stream from these two new projects will gradually grow over the years ahead”
