Net profit surges at capital’s water utility

The capital’s state-owned water utilities firm Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority (PPWSA) reported strong earnings in the first quarter of 2017, according to a filing to the Cambodian stock exchange (CSX) yesterday.

The disclosure document showed unaudited total revenue was $13.94 million during the first three months of the year, a 14 percent year-on-year increase. Total net profit reached $2.81 million, a 50 percent increase compared to the same period in 2016.
