The higher Group revenue was also contributed by the stronger property division which achieved a stronger revenue of RM25.5 million for Q3FYE2017 compared to a revenue of RM13.3 million for Q3FYE2016. This translated to an increase in revenue of 91.7% which was due to the higher sales generated from both completed projects and a new development project, Batu Tiga Phase 2 (Residensi Hijauan) launched since the third quarter of the previous financial year. However, PBT was Q3FYE2017 was lower at RM2.8 million compared to RM4.7 million recognised during Q3FYE2016.

The outstanding performance has been driven by the growing performance of the construction and property development divisions.

PETALING JAYA, 22 MAY 2017 – KUB MALAYSIA BERHAD (‘KUB’ or ‘the Group’) today announced its financial results for the first quarter of its financial year ending 31 December 2017 (‘Q1 FY2017’) with revenue of RM148.6 million, a 21% increase compared to its corresponding quarter of its previous fiscal year (‘Q1 FY2016’).

The Group also reported a pre-tax profit (‘PBT’) of RM10.5 million and profit after tax (‘PAT’) of RM8.0 million, surpassing the Q1 FY2016 results by 18% and a staggering 41% respectively.

KUB’s commendable start to the financial yearwas made possible by the strong performances ofthe Group’s Energy and Agro sectors. The Energy sector’s topline grew by 48% to RM110.6 million as a result of the higher average contract price and improved sales volume arising from the increased demand from its industrial and bulk segment customers. The higher revenue supported the overall increase in the sector’s PBT by 10% to RM6.7 million despite the dip in operating margins. 

The Agro sector meanwhile, recorded revenue of RM12.5 million and PBT of RM2.9 million, a resounding 105% and 96% increase respectively as compared to the previous year’s corresponding quarter. The significant improvement was primarily attributable to higher average crude palm oil prices, a rise in crop production resulting from the increased estate harvesting area as well as the drop in the total cost of production.

The Group’s overall results were further boosted by the improved performance from the Power and Food sectors as well as the absence of contribution from loss making subsidiary, KUB Precast Sdn Bhd which was disposed off in the previous financial year.

Commenting on the Group’s financial results, KUB’s President/Group Managing Director, Datuk Abdul Rahim Mohd Zin said, “We are pleased to kick-off the financial year with impressive first quarter earnings. Our Energy sector continues to be the Group’s main profit driver, and with our plans set in motion to enhance supply and distribution capacity we are confident that the performance momentum will continue.”

“We are also encouraged by the results of our Agro sector particularly with the rehabilitation and cost management efforts to improve yields. These initiatives have begun to bear fruit and reflect positively in our numbers. I’m expecting the sector to deliver decent earnings growth going forward as the losses from our mill in Mukah are expected to narrow once it becomes operational at the end of next month.”

He added “Our ICT sector however, experienced a challenging quarter with a sharp drop in the toplineas compared to last year. Nevertheless, we will continue to persistently bid for more high value contracts going forward to replenish our order book.”

PETALING JAYA, 28 FEBRUARY 2017 – KUB MALAYSIA BERHAD (‘KUB’ or ‘the Group’) today released its financial results for the fourth quarter ended 31 December 2016 (‘Q4FY2016’) with revenue of RM131.3 million and profit after tax (‘PAT’) of RM7.1 million.

The Group delivered a stellar full year financial performance for the year ended 31 December 2016 (‘FY2016’) with revenue of RM495.8 million, representing an increase of 14.7%, as compared to the previous financial year ended 31 December 2015 (‘FY2015’) of RM432.2 million. As a result of the better topline performance, improved operating margins and reduced earnings drag following the completion of disposals of loss-making subsidiaries, the Group’s full year PAT recorded a staggering increase of 136.3% from RM9.1 million in FY2015 to RM21.9 million for FY2016.

The overall performance achieved is in line with KUB’s strategic plan of streamlining its businesses by focusing on core competencies and divesting non-core assets and non-performing subsidiaries. The Group has since successfully completed the disposals of A&W Restaurant (Thailand) Co Ltd and KUB Builders Sdn Bhd in late 2015 and KUB Precast Sdn Bhd in August 2016.

The significant improvement in the financial results for FY2016 as highlighted above was contributed to several factors but mainly from the surge in earnings from the Energy sector as a result of the increase in sales volume of liquefied petroleum gas (‘LPG’), the upward revision in the Automatic Pricing Mechanism (‘APM’) structure as well as foreign exchange gains. Higher revenue was also recognised during the year from the Information and Communications Technology (‘ICT’) sector attributable to the RM42 million Automatic Fare Collection (‘AFC’) system contract secured from the Ministry of Transport as well as a RM16 million Telecommunications Tower construction contract awarded by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (‘MCMC’). The Power sector reversed its substantial prior year losses and recorded a profit in the current year predominantly through higher revenue attained from several projects, the write-back of provision for doubtful debts and a reversal of liquidated ascertained damages for certain projects. As mentioned, the overall results were further enhanced by the absence of contributions from loss making subsidiaries which were disposed in FY2015 and FY2016.

“Despite the challenging economic environment, we have managed to successfully execute part of our strategic plans and deliver a strong set of financials for FY2016. Our key sectors namely Energy, Agro and ICT will continue to be the growth drivers of the Group and we will focus our operational and expansion initiatives on these businesses moving forward.” said Datuk Abdul Rahim Mohd Zin, the President/Group Managing Director of KUB.

(“SEATH”) that was completed on 13 January 2017.

The Group also reported a Profit Attributable to the Owners of the Company (“PATAMI”) of RM25.8 million which translates into a PATAMI margin of 6.3%.

I strongly believe that ACMB will continue to achieve promising business and profit growth moving forward.” said Dato’ Sri Michael Marcus Liew, Executive Director of ACMB at the event.
