Revenue increased q-o-q as a result of the increase in sales intake by existing key customers. Profit before tax decreased marginally from RM25.13 million in last quarter to RM24.01 million mainly due to higher labor costs incurred as a result of relying on higher cost contract workers to cater for the increase in sales orders.
