BJToto: Earning Rebounded

Result Update

For QE31/7/2017, BJToto's net profit rose 2.5% q-o-q or 26.5% y-o-y to RM72 million while revenue was mixed - down 0.4% q-o-q but up 2.5% y-o-y - to RM1.47 billion. Overall revenue dropped q-o-q mainly due to lower revenue reported by Sports Toto and PGMC. The drop was mitigated by higher revenue growth achieved by H.R. Owen which was due to higher revenue achieved from used car sales. The Group registered an increase in pre-tax profit of 15.0% mainly attributable to the improved results reported by Sports Toto and H.R. Owen.

Revenue jumped in QE31/1/2014 due to the consolidation of H.R. Owen's revenue onto the Group's account. Despite the sharply higher revenue, the Group's bottom-line remained flat as the H.R. Owen's profits were not significant.

Hi Jason,

Parkson may have finally broken above its long-term downtrend line at RM0.56-0.58. After such a prolonged downtrend, it may need to absorb many stale bulls before starting on its upleg. I won;t be surprised if it were to move around the RM0.56-0.60 range for a while.
