Contrary to UOB, Nanofilm posted a dull performance in its results for 2022. The company posted a 30% decline in its net profit of S$43.8 million, as compared to 2021. This was an outcome of lower revenues and an increase in some expenses.

The management, however, is committed to reaching the target of S$500 million in revenues and S$100 million in profits by 2025.

MZH stock has a Hold rating on TipRanks, based on four Hold, one Sell, and one Buy recommendations.
