The Yue Yuen group recorded revenue of 7 151.9 million US dollars in the nine months period ended ont he 30th of September 2018, representing an increase of 6.5% compared to revenue of 6 718.0 million US dollars recorded in the same period in 2017. 

Profit attributable to owners of the company declined by 48.3% to 204.6 million US dollars compared to 395.9 million US dollars recorded in 2017.

During the period, a non-recurring loss totalling 31.6 million US dollars was recognized, which included a fair value loss of 34.3 million US dollars on derivative financial instruments that was partly offset by one-off gains arising from the disposal of subsidiaries. Excluding all items of non-recurring in nature, the recurring profit attributable to owners of the company amounted to 236.2 million US dollars, representing a decrease of 37.0% compared to the same period in 2017.
