The automaker’s market share rose by 4.9% to 19.5%, compared to the same period last year, Proton said in a statement.
F&N’s 1QFY20 net profit grew by 4.48% year-on-year, driven by better operating profit from its Thai operations that offset decline in its Malaysian business.

Mudajaya’s indirect 18.93%-owned Indian associate RKM Powergen Pte Ltd has commenced power supply of 550MW to PTC India Ltd.
Meanwhile, US stocks rose solidly on Monday, recovering some of the losses from the previous session’s steep sell-off, but investors remained wary about the bounce as coronavirus fears lingered.
