ID: 1567454

(firmenpresse) - KUALA LUMPUR, May 25, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Main Market-listed Central Global Berhad ("CGB") recorded a 25.42% increase in revenue to RM37.56 million for the first quarter ended 31 March 2021 ("1Q2021") compared to RM29.95 million recorded in the same quarter of the previous year.

The Group registered a loss before tax ("LBT") of RM1.03 million for 1Q2021 compared to a profit before tax ("PBT") of RM760,000 in the corresponding quarter of the previous year. On a segmental basis, CGB's manufacturing arm recorded a 48.3% increase in revenue to RM17.36 million compared to the RM11.7 million recorded in the same quarter of the previous year while the construction arm registered a 10.7% increase in revenue to RM20.2 million compared to the RM18.24 million recorded in the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

For 1Q2021, CGB's manufacturing arm registered RM510,000 in PBT from LBT of RM139,000 in the corresponding quarter of the previous year due mainly to higher revenue contribution from trading of industrial tapes and label stocks. For the quarter under review, the construction arm recorded LBT of RM938,000 compared to PBT of RM1.05 million in the same quarter of the previous year mainly due to lower contribution from two projects located in Penang that were completed and handed over in 1Q2021.

CGB executive chairman Dato' Faisal Zelman said: "We continue to be upbeat about the Group's outlook despite the challenges posed by the rise in COVID-19 infections and its impact on business sentiment. The plans that we shared publicly are being implemented and we are confident that these plans will benefit the Group."

"The approval by Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad of our proposed private placement of 18 million new shares in late April will help these plans along. As we have shared, we intend to upgrade our manufacturing arm's capacity as well as fund an existing construction project in Penang. We have also clinched an RM101 million construction project in Lahad Datu, Sabah that will substantially boost the construction arm's contribution to financial performance in the coming quarters. The manufacturing arm continues to take advantage of the change in market structure arising from a more fragmented competition landscape while the continued supply-chain disruption arising from pandemic lockdowns has given us the opportunity to penetrate the domestic market further."





"The surge of COVID-19 infections has certainly been worrying and we are monitoring the situation as it unfolds. We continue to adhere to all standard operating procedures to ensure the safety and health of our employees, vendors and customers."
