Ardova Plc has reported a drop in its revenue due to weak sales in fuel and solar systems.

This is due to a decrease in fuel sales from N79.49 billion in the same period last year to N74.7 billion this year.
In addition, solar system sales fell 22.3 percent to N5.7 million from N7.34 billion in the same period last year.

The integrated energy company also received N813.8 million from Haulage and transportation services
Other highlights of the financials show that Ardova recorded a drop in its cost of sales to N79.4 billion compared to N81.9 billion in the same period last year.
This helped the firm’s gross earnings rise by 37.7 percent to N7.36 billion, when compared with N5.32 billion, reported in the same period in 2020.
