New-age carrier Vietjet has been named one of Forbes’ Vietnam’s Best 50 Listed Companies. This is the third consecutive year that Vietjet has been included in Forbes’ “50 Best” List since it was officially listed on the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange (HOSE) in February 2017. The award ceremony was held by Forbes Magazine during the Business Forum 2019 in Ho Chi Minh City on August 15.

Forbes’ seventh “50 best listed companies in Vietnam” gathered leading companies on HOSE and Hanoi Stock Exchanges (HNX), including Vinamilk, Sabeco, FPT, Vietjet, DHG Pharmaceutical, Bao Viet, Mobile World and Vingroup. The chosen companies this year were evaluated by industry standards, based on compound annual growth rate, profit, return on equity, earnings per share growth between 2013 to 2018, branding, quality of corporate management, source of profit and the prospect of sustainable development.

According to Forbes, the companies chosen this year has shown impressive growth. All 50 companies in this year’s list accumulated VND 127,530 billion (approximately USD 546 million) in profit after tax, an increase of 19.2 per cent year on year. The total capitalisation of the 50 companies reached USD 94 billion, equivalent to 63% of the total market capitalisation on HOSE and HNX.

The 50 best listed companies in Vietnam this year recognised in particular the growth of the private sector, highlighting companies such as Vietjet, Vingroup, Masan and Hoa Phat. HOSE companies dominated the list with 45 companies, while five HNX companies were included.

With outstanding business results, Vietjet’s shares have attracted the attention of investors, being listed in VN30 in the first year of its listing. In 2018, Vietjet had year of high and sustainable growth, with its revenue at VND 53,577 billion (approximately USD 2.3 billion) and profit before tax at VND 5,816 billion (approximately USD 249 million).

In the first six months of 2019, Vietjet’s air transport revenue increased sharply by 22 per cent to reach VND 20,148 billion (approximately USD 863 million), while the pre-tax profit of air transport reached VND 1,563 billion (approximately USD 67 million), up 16 per cent year on year. Consolidated revenue reached VND 26,301 billion (approximately USD 1.1 billion), an increase of 24 per cent, and profit before tax reached VND 2,398 billion (approximately USD 103 million), up 11 per cent year on year. Vietjet operated a total of 68,821 flights and transported 13.5 million passengers in the first half of 2019, accounting for up to 45 per cent of the total number of flights operated by all Vietnamese airlines. As a result, Vietjet has maintained its leading position in domestic transport.

To date, the new age carrier has operated 129 domestic and international routes to countries such as Singapore, Japan, South Korea, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand and Taiwan.  Vietjet also maintains the one of the highest safety and operation requirements in the world and region. With remarkable business and operation results, Vietjet’s CEO is also the first ‘self-made’ female billionaire in Southeast Asia, and the first and only Vietnamese female billionaire in Forbes’ and Bloomberg’s top lists. She has been mentioned in the world’s Top 100 most powerful women in 2017 and 2018. With all the successes of Vietjet, she was also mentioned in a research case study from Harvard University.
