PATMI accounted for 25.7% of our forecast of RM8.0m.

The lower revenue was mainly due to reduction in sales under a major customer’s contract while the earnings improve albeit lower revenue was due to better efficiencies in Vietnam operation resulting in RM2.1m lower freight cost and RM3.0m higher margin from Indonesia operation from the revised proving with a major customer.

After several difficult years for the Group, management has proactively implemented cost saving measures and repositioned the Group for profitability however the recovery in 2020 appears to be hampered by Covid-19 which is still largely uncertain and remain a risk.
