Another day of reporting on the ASX has drawn to a close. That means it is time for us to summarise some of the big-name results that you might have missed on the ASX today.

We’ll quickly unpack today’s results and then wrap things back up for tomorrow:

Those that reported on the ASX today

Ansell Limited (ASX: ANN)

Shares in Ansell sank 9.2% after the personal protection equipment seller reported its FY21 full-year results. Despite reporting impressive metrics for FY21, the market focused on the forward guidance — with medical PPE expected to taper off.

The takeaway points:

  • Sales of approx. US$2 billion – up 25.6% on the prior corresponding period (pcp).
  • Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) jumped 56% to US$338 million.
  • Net profit after tax (NPAT) surged 57% on the pcp to US$248 million.
  • Basic earnings per share (EPS) of US$1.922 – up 60% on the pcp.
  • Full-year dividend of US76.8 cents per share (US43.6 cents final + US33.2 cents interim). This is 54% higher than the pcp and represents a dividend yield of 2.63%.

Kogan.com Ltd (ASX: KGN)

The Kogan share price went off the edge of an ASX cliff following its reporting of full-year results for FY21. Shares in the online retailer plummeted 15.8% lower following a significant reduction in earnings due to an increase in costs associated with logistics, acquisition, and management payments.

The takeaway points:

  • Gross sales increased 52.7% to $1,179 million
  • Revenue jumped 56.8% to $780.7 million
  • Gross profit rose 61% to $203.7 million
  • Adjusted net profit after tax up 43.2% to $42.9 million
  • Reported net profit after tax down 86.8% to $3.5 million
  • Kogan.com active customer base up 46.9% to 3,207,000, Mighty Ape up to 764,000
  • Cash balance of $12.8 million and no final dividend
  • Outlook: No guidance but poor start to FY 2022

Nanosonics Ltd. (ASX: NAN)

To end things on a positive note, the Nanosonics share price soared on the ASX today after the ultrasound probe disinfector manufacturer reported a rebound in performance in its full-year earnings for FY21. The news was met with euphoria, with the share price increasing 21.9%.

The takeaway points:

  • Revenue up 3% against the prior corresponding period (pcp) to $103.1 million.
  • Significant recovery in the FY21 second half, with revenue up 39% compared to the first half.
  • The global installed base rose 13% to 26,750 units.
  • Earnings before interest and tax was down 7% to $10.8 million.
  • Profit after income tax fell 15% to $8.6 million.
