Blogged previously: A Good Long Look At Mieco Chipboard Again
Mieco Chipboard announced its earnings and it did not register a loss. In fact, it registered a profit of 3.489 million. A turnaround in the making? Time to have a look again, yes?
Company said the following in its notes.
- Group revenue in the final quarter of 2009 fell 28% to RM47.8 million from RM66.1 million a year ago due to lower selling prices and sales volume of particleboard and related products, though partially mitigated by favourable sales mix.
Although sales were lower, the Group registered a pre-tax profit of RM2.2 million as compared to a loss of RM25.1 million a year ago mainly due to reduced raw material prices and operational costs. In addition, the Group incurred RM7.2 million allowance for doubtful debts and RM5.9 million loss on disposal of plant and equipment in the last quarter of 2008.
Doubtful debt allowance of 7.2 million....
