Magni: Profits Rose Despite Lower Revenue

Results Update

In QE31/1/2019, Magni's net profit rose 54% q-o-q or 14% y-o-y to RM36 million while revenue was mixed- up 21% q-o-q but down 1.4% y-o-y to RM309 million.

Revenue receded slightly by 1.4% y-o-y due to lower revenue from the garment segment (dropped by 1.1% mainly due to lower sale orders received) and lower revenue for the packaging revenue (dropped by 4.2% mainly due to lower sale orders received). Profit before tax improved by 7.7% y-o-y due to 6.4%-increase in PBT from the Garment segment (mainly due to higher foreign exchange gain by RM2.992 million and lower operating expenses incurred) and 46.4%-increase in PBT from the packaging segment (mainly due to lower operating expenses incurred).
