KUALA LUMPUR: Brahim’s Holdings Bhd’s shares fell 4% in early trade Tuesday after its external auditor highlighted material uncertainty in FY18 financial statements.


The catering services provider fell 4%, or 0.5 sen to 12 sen. In the past one year, Brahim’s has fallen some 64.71%.


Brahim’s external auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), has made an unqualified opinion on the latter’s financial statements, highlighting a material uncertainty related to the group’s going

The auditor pointed to Note 2 in the group’s financial statements for the year ended Dec 31, 2018 (FY18) which stated that Brahim’s had incurred a net loss after tax of RM116mil and RM59.6mil at the group and company level, while liabilities had exceeded current assets by RM56.6mil and RM80.2mil respectively.
