NOK reported a net loss of 1,466 million Baht in 3Q20, decreased from a loss of 624 million Baht in 3Q19.

The losses were mainly from 656.11 million Baht of unrealized exchange gain/loss, 462.65 from the loss of interests from right to use of land/office leases and the allowance for doubtful accounts for 1,446.02 million Baht based on the implementation of the new accounting standard for lease contract. 


As a result, NOK had a comprehensive loss of 2,598.71 million baht. In addition, the company recognized loss from dissolution of the company NokScoot Airlines Company Limited, a subsidiary.
