The group’s profit rose near eight times to RM1.26 million in its first quarter ended March 31, 2016, compared with RM160,000 a year ago, mainly due to the recovery of bad debts, which amounted to RM1.13 million.

But excluding the bad debt recovery, the actual profit for the quarter was RM135,000, which was slightly lower than last year, mainly due to increase in finance cost.
