Nam Long Investment Joint Stock Company (HOSE: NLG) estimated to achieve about 35% of the 2022 sales target after 5 months.

In May alone, NLG's sales reached VND 2,000 billion, mainly from the residences/villas of Waterpoint and The Mizuki. Thus, NLG sales in the first 5 months have accumulated at over VND 7,800 billion, fulfilling 35% of the 2022’s sales target.
In 2022, NLG targets sales revenue at VND 23,000 billion, 4 times higher than the revenue in 2021 of VND 5,927 billion.

Celebrating the 30-year milestone, NLG sets a revenue target of VND 7,151 billion, up 37% and net profit of VND 1,206 billion, surpassing the trillion mark for the first time, up 13% compared to 2021.

Opening for sale Akari phase 2 in July, and will receive billions from IFC
According to Nam Long, in July 2022, 800 apartments of Akari phase 2 and 60 villas of Waterpoint will be on the market, with an estimated total value of about VND 3,700 billion.
In addition, it is worth mentioning that NLG has completed the required procedures to receive a disbursement of VND 1,000 billion from the International Finance Corporation (IFC).
Previously, IFC - a member of the World Bank, announced that it would buy VND 1,000 billion of bonds issued by Nam Long. The bond has a maximum term of 7 years, the collateral includes NLG's shares in Nam Long VCD and the joint venture company NNH Mizuki. The annual fixed interest rate is calculated by the total fixed base interest rate in VND plus the margin of 3.5%/year. The company pays bond interest every 6 months and the bond principal is divided equally into 3 payment periods every 3rd, 5th and 7th years.
Nam Long said it will use the proceeds from the bond issuance for Waterpoint phase 2 - an integrated township project in Long An province, including green public space, sports complex, schools, universities, healthcare center, as well as transportation infrastructure, retail and office buildings.

In addition, more than 5,000 apartments of Waterpoint phase 2, built according to IFC's EDGE standards (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies) will help address the severe housing shortage in Vietnam in a sustainable way”, said Tran Xuan Ngoc, General Director of Nam Long.
