Results Update

In QE31/12/2016, HEIM's net profit increased by 84% q-o-q or 15% y-o-y to RM105 million while turnover rose 50% q-o-q or 10% q-o-q to RM578 million. Revenue rose sharply q-o-q principally driven by higher volumes from festive demand, improved brand portfolio performance and the stabilization of the market following lower volumes observed in the immediate preceding quarter. PBT rose 63.4% q-o-q on the back of increased revenue and timing of commercial spend. PAT rose more than PBT due to lower tax rate as a result of RM13.4 million deferred tax used to reduce tax charge.
