Other businesses posted a higher revenue of RM138.4 million versus RM66.1 million previously, it said in a filing to Bursa Malaysia today, However, the property investment division revenue declined to RM58 million in Q3FY21 from RM98 million previously, and the construction segment revenue dropped from RM255 million to RM193 million.
