Pol.Gen Somchai Vanichsenee
Chairman of the Board of Directors
Along our journey in 2020, Plan B has never ceased to develop out-of-home media business and engagement marketing business through collaborations with business alliances to expand business opportunities using innovations and a diverse array of modern advertising media to fortify our potential and enhance our competitive edge. In 2020, the Company reported total revenue of THB 3,768 million and net profit attributable to shareholders of THB 40 million amidst economic recession and impacts from the COVID-19 outbreak since the beginning of 2020.
COVID-19 crisis heightened the importance of participation in social responsibility to the Company. As a result, the Company teamed up with our subsidiaries in carrying out various projects to alleviate problems and hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, over 30,000 survival bags packed with supplies were distributed to affected people in Bangkok and other provinces. Certain media platforms were offered to agencies in the government sector for their PR purposes at no cost to encourage people to be fully aware of the spread and to monitor the coronavirus outbreak situation. The Company prioritized our employee's health and safety , as evidenced by different preventive measures issued and implemented as mutual guidelines to help people thrive through this crisis with the least interruption possible.
Despite our fast business expansion in multiple areas through our continuous growth strategies, the Company has never become complacent over prudent organization management under good corporate governance principles with morality, ethics and social and environmental responsibility. Plan B cultivates a responsible mindset, encourages employee participation in helping and supporting activities for public and community benefits, and prevents social impacts that may arise from our business conduct. Furthermore, sustainable development principles are observed and nurtured as an organizational culture to build quality employees ready for future economic and social changes. This is to lay a strong foundation for effective business conduct that will promote agility and sustainable growth.
We are honoured to be assessed by the Thai Institute of Directors (IOD) for our corporate governance practice and receive an Excellent" rating for 4 years in a row from 2017-2020.
Plan B was also granted various awards from SET Awards 2020 organized by the Stock Exchange of Thailand, including the Outstanding Company Performance Award and and the Outstanding CEO Award and the Outstanding Young Rising Star CEO Award under Business Excellence Category for 2020.
I would like to thank shareholders, customers, government agencies, and all stakeholders, including business alliances on behalf of the Board of Directors, executives, and Plan B Media Public Company Limited employees for your continued support. Please rest assured that through the sustainable development concept embedded in all dimensions of our business management, the Company is best-positioned to grow and generate stable return for all stakeholders in a continuous and sustainable manner. Lastly, the Company would like to share our support to medical workers, business owners and related agencies in all sectors and wish everyone thrive through the COVID-19 pandemic with ease.
