The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) announced that worldwide sales of semiconductors reached USD37.6 billion and USD38.7 billion for the month of April and May 2018 respectively, an increase of 20% and 21% compared to the April and May 2017 sales. As a result of the positive growth of the semi-conductor business, the Group’s subsidiaries in Taiwan and Singapore achieved an improved business performance of 12% and 24% respectively compared to the preceding year corresponding quarter. Their subsidiaries in Malaysia and the Philippines also recorded a better performance due to new works secured and expanded business portfolio.
The Group’s profit before tax (“PBT”) of RM19.5 million for the current quarter was RM9.2 million or 90.1% higher than the corresponding quarter’s RM10.3 million. The higher profit was mainly due to improved performances by the Group’s subsidiaries in Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines.
The Group’s revenue of RM152.7 million for the current period ended 30 June 2018 was RM15.1 million (11.0%) higher than that achieved in the preceding year corresponding period. The improvement was mainly due to better performances from the Group’s subsidiaries in Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia. Year-to-date revenue during the first half of 2018 from their subsidiaries in Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia rose 17.1%, 6.5% and 4.0% respectively compared to the first half of 2017. This was consistent with the report issued by SIA on the overall growth in the semiconductor industry which had directly benefited the Group’s performance.
Against the same period last year, the PBT for the Group increased by RM11.0 million (55.9%) as a result of improved revenue and vigilance in cost management.

The Group’s revenue was 15.3% or approximately RM10.9 million higher during the current quarter as compared to the immediate preceding quarter due to improved business performance for the Group’s subsidiary in Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. The Group’s improved unaudited PBT for the current quarter was mainly due to higher revenue and foreign exchange gain as compared to foreign exchange loss in the immediate preceding quarter.
The Group recorded an improved first half results compared to the preceding year corresponding period; consistent with the announcement made by SIA that the global semiconductor market achieved growth of greater than 20% for 14 consecutive months, and May 2018 marked the industry’s highest-ever monthly sales. The World semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS) also recently released their industry forecast projects annual global market growth of 12.4% in 2018. While the Group anticipates that the overall business conditions for the remaining 6 months for the current financial year to remain challenging, the Group is cautiously optimistic that its performance for the rest of the year will be satisfactory. The Group will also continue to be vigilant in its cost management and continually explore ways to improve on its efficiency.
