Magontec (MGL) has provided an update on COVID-19 lockdowns in China, and also revealed an increase in profit year-on year.

The magnesium company has revealed it brought in $17.1 million in gross profit between January and November.

In comparison, the business only netted $12.95 million in gross profit throughout 2020.

Looking ahead, management expects its gross profit result for 2021 to be no less than $17.1 million.

MGL also revealed today Magontec Xi’an factory has been affected by the recent lockdown by the Chinese Government.

The lockdown was enacted amid an outbreak of COVID-19 in the city of Xi’an, with factories closed and residents ordered to stay home.
