KUALA LUMPUR: AMDB Bhd’s first quarter result for financial year ending March 31, 2011 (1QFYE11) saw a decline in net profit by 23% to RM3.09 million from RM4.02 million in the corresponding quarter last year due higher finance costs and taxation from the property division.

The company said on Monday, Aug 9 that its 1Q revenue slid to RM29.8 million, compared to RM91.6 million in the same period last year, while earnings per share stood at 0.54 sen compared to 1.27 sen a year ago.
