Group revenue in current quarter rose 14.0% to RM181.3 million (2Q2019: RM159.1 million) mainly due to RM130.4 million energy sales revenue (2Q2019: Nil) and higher contribution from Packaging & Labels Division (up 31.0% to RM21.6 million). Pre-tax profit jumped 224% to RM97.4 million (2Q2019: RM30.0 million), underpinned by a RM93.7 million pre-tax profit from energy sales (2Q2019: RM0.6 million loss) and RM1.7 million contribution from the Packaging & Labels Division (2Q2019: RM0.3 million loss).
Profit after tax surged 289% to RM95.3 million (2Q2019: RM24.0 million) on 224% increase in pre-tax profit and lower effective income tax rate. Income from energy sale in Laos is exempted from income tax in its first five years of commercial operations, whereas in 2Q2019, a 20% deferred tax was provided for construction profit during the construction period of the Don Sahong.
The Power Division derived its RM130.4 million revenue in the current quarter from energy sales to Électricité du Laos or “EDL” (2Q2019: nil). During the current quarter, Don Sahong recorded an average energy availability factor of 86.7%, an improvement from 70.7% in the preceding quarter as Laos emerged from its dry season. The division recorded an EBITDA of RM118.8 million and a pre-tax profit of RM93.7 million from energy sales to EDL in the quarter under review, representing an EBITDA and pre-tax profit margin of 91.1% and 71.8%, respectively.

With the onset of wetter weather in June, the average energy availability factor is forecast to exceed 90% in the second half of the year.

With the onset of the wet season in June, energy availability factor of Don Sahong power plant is expected to rise in the second half of 2020 to more than 90%, compared to 78.7% in 1H2020. This would translate into higher earnings for the Power Division in the remaining part of this year. Construction of the 5th turbine is expected to take 2-3 years to complete.
Solar – Large Scale Solar (LSS):
The Group intends to participate in the upcoming bidding for the development of the 4th cycle of Large Scale Solar projects (“LSS4”) in Malaysia. LSS4 offers a total of 1,000 MW solar capacity divided into two packages of 500 MW each. One package is for capacity between 10 MW and 30 MW, and the other package is for larger capacity of between 30 MW and 50 MW. Results of the bidding exercise is expected to be announced in January 2021. If successful, the project which carries a term of 21 years, is expected to be commissioned in 2023.
Solar - Commercial & Industrial (“C&I”) Projects:
The Group intends to expand its investments in C&I solar photovoltaic projects. Since teaming up with Pekat Teknologi Sdn Bhd in September 2019, the Group has secured four (4) Solar C&I projects with total installed capacity of 16MW. These investments are expected to contribute positively to Group earnings starting from 2021.
Following the gradual re-opening of the Malaysia and regional economies, demand for lime products has gradually recovered from its trough in April-May. Overall sales volume of lime products by the Resources Division has recovered to pre-pandemic levels in June 2020, in part due to orders from a newly secured customer. Management expects earnings performance of the Resources Division to improve in the second half of this year.
Packaging & Labels Division:
The performance of the Packaging & Labels Division has not been adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Management expects the growth momentum achieved in the first half of the year to be sustained throughout the remaining part of the year, underpinned by continuing strong overseas demand for their flexible packaging products and paper bags.
The Group’s packaging products are considered environmentally more friendly and sustainable when compared to many other types of packaging materials. These products offer tremendous growth opportunities as consumers become increasingly more conscious of the importance of sustainability.
To cope with growing domestic and overseas demand, the division has embarked on a major expansion program to increase the production capacity of paper bags by 200% and production capacity of flexible packaging by 100%. The expansion, including the construction costs of two new factories, is expected to cost about RM80 million over the next 2 years.
