Jerry Ling asked 5 years ago

Hi Victor/Rusmin,
On the other income, it is hard to define which to be included or excluded. For example, Bursa Pohuat 7088.
Based on AR2016, it recorded other income of 7.113 millon, but did not specifically mentioned the breakdown. Shall i include it or completely exclude it to get my gross and net profit margin?
Upon further research, it mentioned the group recorded a net surplus of 1.75 mil under other income/expenses. It also received 4.26 million of insurance of compensation + interest income 1.11 mil. These 3 add together is 7.12 mil.
So, which to include, which to exclude?  
Please advise. 
P.S. Pohuat only show its other income through “letter to shareholders”. The AR2014 and before does not specifically mentioned on other income. Shall I totally exclude it from net profit attribute to shareholders?
Thank you.
