YTL Corp Executive Chairman Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh Sock Ping, CBE, FICE, said, “The Group performed well for the current quarter under review. Lower revenue for the quarter was mainly the result of lower contributions from the construction and cement divisions. However, the Group registered a 23% increase in profit before tax for the quarter, with net profit rising 91%, due mainly to better performance in the hotels and management services segments”.

For the cumulative 9 months ended 31 March 2019, YTL Corp registered a 10.8% increase in revenue to RM12,955.9 million (US$3,099.5 mn), compared to RM11,691.5 million (US$2,797.0 mn) for the preceding corresponding 9 months ended 31 March 2018, whilst profit for the period stood at RM634.8 million (US$151.9 mn) for the 9 months ended 31 March 2019, compared to RM901.4 million (US$215.7 mn) for the same period last year.

Tan Sri Dato’ (Dr) Francis Yeoh Sock Ping, CBE, FICE, Executive Chairman of YTL Power, said, “The increase in profit before tax in the current quarter was mainly due to the absence of a one-off recognition of an allowance for the impairment of receivables following a court decision on outstanding litigation in the merchant multi utilities segment recognised in the previous quarter.
