YTL Corp Registers Half-Year Revenue of RM7.8 Billion (US$2.0 Billion) & Profit of RM604 Million (US$154 Million)
melisa@ytlesolutions.com - 23 February 2018 4:46:09 PM

YTL Group Managing Director Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh Sock Ping, CBE, FICE, said, “The Group’s revenue increased by 10% to RM7.8 billion for the first half of the 2018 financial year, whilst profit before taxation grew 12% to RM836 million compared to the same period last year. Our utilities segment saw increases in revenue and profit before taxation resulting from the commencement of supply on 1 September 2017 from Paka Power Station under the new power purchase agreement in the contracted power generation sub-segment, coupled with better performance in the mobile broadband division following the launch of nationwide 4G LTE services last year.

“Our cement business recorded an increase in revenue on the back of higher sales volumes in the cement and quarry divisions, although profit before tax was affected by production cost increases and competitive pricing in the domestic market. The construction segment registered improved revenue due to better site progress, offset by lower construction margins.

“Meanwhile, in the hotels segment, the increase in revenue was contributed mainly by The Hotel Stripes in Kuala Lumpur, Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel in Australia and 3 new hotels in the United Kingdom, with the decrease in profit before tax arising due to unrealised foreign exchange losses on intercompany balances.” [more...]

farah@ytlcommunity.com - 22 November 2017 5:58:23 PM

YTL Group Managing Director Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh Sock Ping, CBE, FICE, said, “The Group’s financial performance for the first quarter of the 2018 financial year saw a 12.5% increase in revenue to RM3.9 billion, with profit for the period increasing 17.6% to RM310 million compared to the same period last year. The bulk of the increase in revenue was contributed by our utilities division, with our construction, property, cement, IT, hotels and management services segments also registering revenue growth.

“Meanwhile, the increase in profit before tax was contributed mainly by our property segment, following a land disposal to Pentadbir Tanah Kuala Lumpur in relation to the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) project, and our utilities segment, which saw the commencement of supply from our Paka Power Station on 1 September 2017 under the new power purchase agreement. Profit before tax from the Group’s cement business was impacted by increased production costs and the absence of liquidated damages recognised last year, whilst profit from our hotels segment was affected by the ongoing renovation of the JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur and pre-opening and training costs incurred by The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui, a new development in Thailand.” [more...]

YTL Corp Records Full-Year Revenue of RM14.7 Billion (US$3.4 Billion)
Profit for the Period Stands at RM1.4 Billion (US$328 Million)

evon@ytlesolutions.com - 29 August 2017 5:59:46 PM

YTL Group Managing Director Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh Sock Ping, CBE, FICE, said, “The Group performed well for the 2017 financial year in view of the adverse conditions that have persisted in some of our main operating markets. Our utilities division saw a decrease in revenue and profit before taxation due mainly to the strengthening of the Ringgit against the British Pound in the water and sewerage division which operates in the UK, in addition to the absence of the one-off gain from the arbitration award recorded last year in our contracted power generation division.

“Our cement business registered lower revenue and profit before tax owing to lower demand for cement in the construction industry, competitive pricing and higher production costs, whilst our construction segment achieved an increase in revenue due to better site progress on its projects and an increase in profit before tax on the recognition of an arbitration award.

"The property investment and development segment saw higher revenue from better site progress on the Dahlia, U-Thant Place and Midfields 2 residential projects under development, whilst profit was impacted by a net fair value loss on investment properties recorded by Starhill Global REIT in Singapore. Meanwhile, our hotels segment benefited from better performances by the Group’s hotels in Hokkaido, Bath, Sabah and Kuala Lumpur, as well as a lower unrealised foreign exchange loss on intercompany balances resulting from the weakening of the Ringgit against the Japanese Yen.

“Our management services segment recorded decreases in revenue and profit due to lower contributions from operation and maintenance (O&M) activities in Malaysia, higher interest expenses and the absence of a one-off deferred tax credit recorded last year [more...]




YTL Corp Records 9-Month Revenue of RM10.8 Billion (US$2.5 Billion)
Profit for the Period Stands at RM1.0 Billion (US$234 Million)

melisa@ytlesolutions.com - 25 May 2017 6:32:01 PM

YTL Group Managing Director Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh Sock Ping, CBE, FICE, said, “The Group’s performance remained satisfactory during the first 3 quarters of the 2017 financial year in view of ongoing pressures that have persisted in our main operating industries. Our utilities division saw a decline in revenue and profit mainly due to the absence of revenue from the contracted power generation segment following the completion of our power purchase agreement in September 2015.

The strengthening of the Malaysian Ringgit against the British Pound impacted the results of the water and sewerage segment, whilst the merchant multi-utilities division registered an increase in profit due to higher fuel prices, coupled with lower operating and interest expenses.

“In new developments in the utilities business, we increased in our stake in Attarat Power Company (APCO) to 45%, from 30% previously, upon the project achieving financial close in March 2017. APCO is developing a 554 megawatt oil shale fired power generation project in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, targeted to commence operation in 2020. The project has a 30-year power purchase agreement for the plant’s entire electrical capacity with NEPCO, Jordan’s state-owned power utility, with an option for NEPCO to extend the operating period of the power purchase agreement to 40 years.

“In addition, in our contracted power generation division, the extension for the supply of 585 megawatts of capacity from our existing power station in Paka, Terengganu, for a revised term of 3 years 10 months has now been finalised and is scheduled to commence on 1 September 2017.

“In the Group’s other operations, revenue and profit in the cement division decreased primarily as a result of lower demand for cement in the construction industry, competitive pricing and higher production costs, whilst the improved financial performance of the construction division was due to higher revenue recognition of construction contracts and better contract margins. The property investment and development segment saw higher revenue and profit arising from better site progress on The Fennel project and higher unrealised foreign exchange gains.” [more...]
