Magni: Another Outstanding Quarter!

Results Update

For QE31/10/2016, Magni's net profit rose 21% q-o-q or 32% y-o-y to RM28.5 million while revenue rose 3% q-o-q or 42% y-o-y to RM280 million. Revenue increased q-o-q due to higher garment and packaging revenue of 3.4% and 0.6% respectively mainly due to higher orders received. PBT increased q-o-q due to higher PBT for  garment of 23.3% due to higher revenue and lower operating expenses resulting from vigilant cost control but was partially weighed down by lower foreign exchange gain and lower dividend income, which offset lower PBT for packaging PBT mainly due to higher operating expenses.
