- Revenue grew 14.8% to RM540.4 million
- Growth recorded across all core customer groups
- Profit before tax (pre-MFRS 16) grew 23.5%
Shah Alam, 27 August 2019 – TIME dotCom Berhad (“TIME” or “the Group”) recorded revenue of RM540.4 million for the period ended 30 June 2019, representing a 14.8% year-on-year growth. Higher sales were recorded across all core product segments. All core customer groups also contributed to overall revenue growth, led by wholesale and retail customers.
Pre-tax profit grew 23.5% to RM166.1 million (pre-MFRS 16) from RM134.5 million for the same period of the preceding year. This can be attributed to higher overall revenues, improved cost efficiencies and a higher share of profit from investment in associates.
The telecommunications industry landscape in Malaysia will remain challenging in 2019 as the market is further liberalised through reforms and potential consolidation of key operators. The Group is of the view that opportunities will arise alongside any change in the industry, and will continue to monitor industry developments closely to leverage on opportunities as and when they arise.
TIME will also continue working with its partners in Thailand and Vietnam to tap the increasing demand for cross border connectivity in the Southeast Asian region.
“Access to Southeast Asian markets is still in high demand. In addition to connectivity, we are also assessing opportunities to establish ourselves as a regional data centre player in line with our strategy for business sustainability,” said Afzal Abdul Rahim, TIME’s Commander-in-Chief.
