For the year 2020, DTC reported a net loss of THB 1,011 million compared to a net profit of THB 320 million in 2019.

To alleviate the impact of declining revenue, the Company revisited business plan and reshaped organization structure as aforementioned to enhance operational efficiency and reduce costs in the longer term.
Despite a significant drop in performance YoY, DTC’s quarterly results showed improvement QoQ since 3Q20 and continued to 4Q20 in hotel, education, and food business as expected. Hotel revenue increased QoQ driven by hotel re-openings and better occupancy rate and ADR.
