Forte Oil Plc was among the companies that reported their results for the first quarter (Q1) ended March 31, 2015.

The integrated energy solutions provider posted gross profit of N4.1 billion, compared with N4.1 billion in the corresponding period of 2014.

Although the company strived to reduce costs in the areas of sales,, distributions and administration, finance charges rose by 37.5 per cent.

This affected the bottom line in Q1 as profit after tax fell from N1.1 billion to N784 million.

However, market analysts said the performance of the company would improve significantly in the quarters ahead as the assets acquired with the banks borrowings begin to yield results.

Forte Oil last year successfully concluded its three-year business transformation that led to a complete turnaround of the company from a loss making entity of N19 billion in 2011 to a profit and a sustainable business entity.
