Kuala Lumpur: Berjaya Corporation Bhd (BCorp) recorded a pre-tax loss of RM153.46 million in the second quarter ended Oct 31, 2017 against a pre-tax profit of RM408.49 million in the same quarter a year ago.
In a filing to Bursa Malaysia Thursday, BCorp said the loss was mainly due to the provision for the portion impairment of the balance sales proceeds from the Great Mall of China project sale in China in accordance to accounting standards and the partial disposal of an associated company.
Revenue decreased to RM2.19 billion from RM2.46 billion previously, due to lower revenue reported by the retail distribution and motor distribution businesses, property investment and development business segments, it said.
On prospects, BCorp said given the prevailing economic conditions and global financial outlook, the directors were of the view that the group’s operating environment would be challenging going forward.
