Hang Xanh Motors Service JSC (Haxaco), a major Mercedes-Benz's dealer in Vietnam, reported a record loss, more than VND33 billion ($1.4 million) in Q3, due to social distancing orders.

Revenue in Q3 was VND700 billion, down 59 percent compared to the same period last year.

Social distancing measures applied in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and other localities in this quarter have seriously affected Haxaco and the automobile industry. The company’s two branches in HCMC had to temporarily close in Q3 while another in Hanoi was closed until Sept. 12.

"This has caused a decline in our sales and services during this period," the company noted.

Between January and September, the auto dealer's revenue was VND3.4 trillion, down 9 percent over the same period, equivalent to 35 percent of this year's business plan.

However, profit dropped by 45 percent to VND44 billion.

Despite revenue decline, the company retains a positive forecast for the last quarter of this year. It has thoroughly prepared to resume operations in the new normalcy, with all employees fully vaccinated to ensure operational safety.

Previously, in the annual meeting at the beginning of the year, the company set a business plan for 2021 with a net profit of VND126 billion.
