Success: Earnings Plummeted

Results Update

For QE31/3/2018, Success's net profit plummeted 83% q-o-q or 88% y-o-y to RM1.1 million while revenue dropped 18% q-o-q or 17% y-o-y to RM76 million. PBT dropped sharply mainly due to decrease in sales from transformer and lighting segment and losses under process equipment segment due to its lower margin contribution from certain projects as compared to immediate preceding quarter ended 31 December 2017.
