Though the improvement in adjusted net income in the quarter was impressive, increases in cost of sales and operating expenses impacted the company’s margin profile. In the third quarter, Cosan recorded a solid 29.4% year-over-year increase in cost of sales while selling and general & administrative expenses recorded annual increase of 46.2% and 60.0%, respectively.
Of all the operating segments of the company, Radar, which is responsible for all investment activities in agricultural land, failed to gain momentum and registered a 13.4% decline in revenue.
