China-based oncology service provider Concord Medical has posted a net loss of CNY91m ($12.5m) attributable to its ordinary shareholders for the first half of this year.
The figure represents a decrease from the CNY114.7m loss reported by the company for the same period of last year.
Concord Medical’s total net revenues for the six months to 30 June were CNY284.51m, up by 97.2% from CNY144.26m a year earlier.
The company’s hospital and network divisions contributed CNY158.7m and CNY125.8m respectively to the total revenues.
Concord Medical attributed the rise in revenues to the development of Guangzhou Hospital and the rebound of its three medical institutions in Shanghai from the impact of Covid-19.
The company’s selling expenses fell by 0.18% to CNY26.36m in H1 2023 from CNY26.41m a year ago, while its general and administrative expenses rose 15.15% to CNY150.24m from CNY130.46m.
