  4QFY10 top line growth by 8.7% y/y to RM245.7mn: It was mainly attributable to better sales mix achieved in the Group’s on-going projects. Current on-going projects include Bukit Mandarina, Sh’ng Villa and Riana Green East while township projects such as Seremban 2, Shah Alam 2, Nusa [email protected] and Bandar [email protected] would provide stable source of revenue.

  YTD PBT increased by 118% y/y to RM148.9mn: Increase in PBT was a result of better revenue recognition and stable building materials cost. PBT margin improved, notwithstanding a one-off gain from the disposal of Tesco land & building in Penang recognised in 2QFY09.

  Flagship project in Penang and Johor: Growth driver for IJM Land will be their Penang project ‘The Light’ which is expected to size up their total GDV of RM5.2bn. Residential portion had been launched in phases. The residential component (42ac; RM1.2b GDV) has already been reclaimed and launches have commenced.
