There has been an accelerator on the accountability of poor governance or financial corruption by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for the past few months. It is widely perceived that the establishment is backing NAB and other institutions to interrogate and possibly evict corrupt elements in political power houses.
Nishat Chunian Power (KSE: NCPL) - a Nishat Group independent power producer - announced its financial performance in FY15 on the stock exchange yesterday, and along with stable earnings, the firms payout touched its historic high of around 85 percent.
Nishat Chunian seems to have had quite the quarter to end FY15 on a high note; the companys full-year sales growth stands at 4 percent year-over-year, which translates into a massive 42 percent jump in gross profit.
Is there any stopping to HUM TV? Short of a struggling last quarter in terms of relatively weaker gross margins, it appears there isn any. The firm reported 26 percent growth in net profits yesterday, despite a nearly 600 plus bps year-on-year decline in gross margins in the quarter ending June 2015.
The tide is in favour of the current regime to turnaround the economic picture of the country. The incumbent government has an unprecedented opportunity in the shape of lower oil prices and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. Back in 2001, 9/11 paved the way for Musharraf's regime to boost economic growth and they did a good job in deregulating industries; mainly banking and telecom; to boost economic growth.
Communication gap is often cited as one of the chief culprits of the dire straits that Pakistan's power sector finds itself in. Nepra's latest annual report 2014-15 tells just that, among many other things. An independent regulator aimed to grant licenses, prescribe procedures, determine tariffs and keep an oversight on generation, transmission and distribution related affairs, seems to have invited the irk of the ministry it comes under.
Its never too late to have a wakeup call. And its time for the Pakistani telecom authorities to respond to one. The UNs Broadband Commission for Digital Developments recently-released global comparison on broadband access should make for an interesting read for local authorities. By the way, UN has been taking so much interest in broadband because it believes in the technologys potential to help achieve sustainable development for the worlds marginalized.
