The company posted a net loss of RM62.063mil and pre-tax loss of RM68.2mil in 2002, compared with a net profit of RM1.207mil and pre-tax profit of RM4.621mil in 2001.

A significant portion of the losses incurred in the year just ended was also due to the company's move to assess its assets and a provision of RM57.3mil for work in progress, it said. 

Going forward, the company said it was currently restructuring and streamlining its operations as the current business environment poses a big challenge to the group's profitability. – AFX
