Results Update

For QE31/12/2015, CBIP's net profit rose 162% q-o-q or 61% y-o-y to RM39 million while revenue was mixed; rose 59% q-o-q but dropped 4% y-o-y to 197 million. Revenue increased q-o-q due to higher project billing by special purpose vehicles and palm oil mill equipment segments. PBT rose q-o-q due mainly attributable to improvement in project implementation and management by the special purpose vehicles and palm oil mill equipment segments, and a favorable foreign exchange during the current quarter & 21%-increase in shares of results of associates.

Despite the sharp swing, one can see that CBIP's revenue and profit are rising in line with the steady growth in the palm oil estates. This is supportive of the management's expectation of satisfactory results for FY2016.
