IOI-RESULTS
IOI CORP'S Q3 PRE-TAX PROFIT RISES TO RM677.1 MLN
KUALA LUMPUR, May 21 (Bernama) -- IOI Corp Bhd's pre-tax profit increased to
RM677.1 million for the third quarter ended March 31, 2013, from RM659.4 million
registered in the same period last year.
Revenue, however, was lower at RM3.2 billion, during the period under
review, from RM3.6 billion, previously.
In a statement today, the group attributed the better pre-tax profit to its
manufacturing and property segments.
"Contribution from the property segment for the quarter under review was 62
per cent higher at RM254.4 million compared with the second quarter while our
resource-based manufacturing segment reported a profit of RM226.1 million, up 29
per cent from the previous quarter," it said.
On prospects, the group said while the plantation business would continue
to face challenges on manpower shortage and higher labour cost, its property
development business would remain positive given the booming local industry.
"Overall, we expect to perform satisfactorily during the remaining quarter
of this financial year," it added.
