 |  Thursday, 30 August 2018 10:23  |  Published in CORPORATE

UMW Holdings Bhd’s core business segments of Automotive, Equipment and Manufacturing & Engineering (M&E) recorded higher revenue in the second quarter of 2018 mainly due to increased consumer demand arising from the Goods and Services Tax (GST) – free period in Malaysia.

Consequently, the Automotive and Equipment segments registered higher profit before taxation (PBT) of 43.9% and 17.4%, respectively. UMW’s new aerospace business has started to generate revenue, contributing to 15.9% revenue growth for the M&E segment. As a result, the segment registered a substantially lower loss before taxation than in the previous corresponding quarter. The loss is expected as the aerospace business is still in its gestation period.
