Overall, APT’s earnings beat market expectations, with its revenue and EPS ahead of estimates, largely due to a lower provision from higher than anticipated collections of instalment payments during COVID-19. Its US underlying sales in July expected to continue throughout FY21 and its launch into Canada in August should extend the reach in North America. APT is also confident on its expansion into Europe through Pagantis in FY21 (already more than 1 million active customers in first year operations).
