Mixed Financial Results For Alliança, Gafisa, And Light In Early 2024

(MENAFN- The Rio Times) Alliança (AALR3) reported challenging Q1 2024 results. The diagnostic medicine
company, formerly known as Alliar, faced an adjusted net loss of R$ 70.8 million ($13.75 million).

This represents a 119.8% increase from the same period last year.

The company attributed this loss to debt restructuring strategies and capital structure improvements, including significant debt liquidation.

Additionally, adjusted EBITDA fell to R$ 46.9 million ($9.11 million). This marks a 25.9% decrease compared to Q1 2023.

Lower revenue, increased specific operational costs, and non-recurring restructuring expenses influenced this decline.

Consequently, the company's consolidated net revenue dropped by 3.5% year-on-year to R$ 279.1 million ($54.21 million).

Alliança attributed this decrease to fewer business days, the closure of un profit
able units, and the ramp-up of new equipment.

Operational costs rose due to increased occupancy and personnel expenses. Gross profit
decreased by 19% to R$ 81 million ($15.73 million) compared to Q1 2023.

However, Alliança made progress in reducing total net debt to R$ 831.1 million ($161.38 million).

This marks a 6.2% decrease from the previous year, thanks to effective debt reprofiling and payment term renegotiations.

These efforts aim to strengthen cash generation and optimize capital structure.

Despite operational challenges, Alliança remains committed to sustainable and efficient expansion.
Gafisa Achieves R$ 20 Million ($3.88 Million) Profit in Q1 2024
Gafisa (GFSA3) announced a net profit
of R$ 20 million ($3.88 million) for Q1 2024.

This marks a significant improvement from the R$ 34 million ($6.60 million) loss in the same period last year, a positive change of R$ 54 million ($10.49 million).

The company's adjusted EBITDA surged by 161.6% to R$ 96.4 million ($18.72 million) compared to Q1 2023.

Cost optimization initiatives and efficient asset and financing management drove this increase.

Additionally, the adjusted EBITDA margin improved to 38.0%. Gafisa's operational success stems from a focus on high-end real estate.

Notable project deliveries included TOM Delfim Moreira in Rio de Janeiro and Normandie Moema and High Line Jardins in São Paulo.

These projects boosted gross sales to R$ 205 million ($39.81 million), a 39% increase from the previous quarter.

The company's consolidated net revenue was R$ 253.7 million ($49.27 million), a 13.3% decrease from Q1 2023.

Despite this year-on-year decline, sequential improvement from the previous quarter reflected continued demand for high-end properties.

Effective sales and marketing strategies contributed as well. Gafisa reduced net debt by 8% compared to Q4 2023 and by 10% year-on-year to R$ 1.1 billion ($213.59 million).

This reduction demonstrated the company's commitment to financial
sustainability and capital structure optimization.
Light Reports R$ 357.3 Million ($69.36 Million) Loss in Q1 2024

of R$ 107.1 million ($20.80 million) from the same period last year.

Light's net financial
result was negative at R$ 354.8 million ($68.90 million), a 33.6% increase in financial
losses from the same period last year.

However, Light reduced its debt costs by 5.7% compared to Q1 2023, totaling R$ 319.6 million ($62.05 million).

Favorable exchange rate effects and lower monetary variation expenses due to a slower IPCA contributed to this reduction.

This marked an increase of R$ 327.5 million ($63.57 million) from December of the previous year.
