The company said on Sept 28 that on a pre-tax level, it was up 57% at RM16.47 million versus RM10.5 million a year ago. Revenue slipped to RM58.98 million from RM79.54 million. Earnings per share were 2.99 sen versus 2.73 sen.
"The lower group revenue was mainly due to the completion of Suria Stonor, the group’s high-end residential condominium project. Profits were substantially higher due to stronger contributions from Glomac Tower. The stronger profits in the quarter also included the recognition of fair value gain of RM4.9 million from its investment properties," it said.
Glomac group executive chairman, Tan Sri F D Mansor said: “Overall, the group has had a good start to the current financial year" and the group's balance sheet would continue to improve upon the completion of the sale of two of its investment properties.
He said the sale of the two properties would enable it to undertake more exciting development projects and seek out new development landbank.
"Glomac’s financial performance in FY2010 will be supported by substantial unbilled sales of RM333 million as at end-July 2009, and new sales on recently launched projects.
"The group’s new flagship development, Glomac Damansara, comprising shop offices, office towers, serviced apartments and retail suites, has a total estimated GDV (gross development value) of RM800 million," he said, adding that the first phase, comprising five and eight-storey shop offices with a total GDV of RM53 million, achieved a take-up rate of 70% over the initial six-month launch period.
