Magni: Earning Growth Slowed

Results Update

For QE31/1/2017, Magni's net profit rose 3.6% q-o-q or 13.4% y-o-y to RM29.6 million while revenue rose 3.3% q-o-q or 7.5% y-o-y to RM289 million. Revenue increased q-o-q due to 3.7%-increase in Garment revenue as a result of favorable foreign exchange rate but was partially weighed down by lower sale orders received and 0.4%-increase in Packaging revenue as a result of higher sale orders received. PBT increased q-o-q due to higher PBT for Garment PBT of 14.2% mainly due to higher revenue and higher foreign exchange gain (Other operating income) which was partially offset by a 158.5%-drop in packaging PBT mainly due to the provision of SIPP's closure costs of RM2.877 million. Had there been no provision for the closure costs, packaging PBT would have been higher by 18.6% versus the preceding quarter mainly due to better productivity, aided by a slight increase in revenue.
