MGB REPORTS HIGHEST-EVER EARNINGS IN 2023


MGB Berhad’s revenue of RM971.8mil for the full year 2023 was primarily driven by its construction and trading segment, and property development segment.

CONSTRUCTION and property development solutions provider MGB Bhd recorded revenue of RM971.8mil for the full year ending Dec 31, 2023 (FY23) – a 58.6% increase from the previous year’s RM612.8mil.

This substantial growth of MGB – a subsidiary of LBS Bina Group Bhd – was primarily driven by a 45.4% gain in revenue from the construction and trading segment, amounting to RM856.2mil.

The surge was propelled by projects such as Idaman BSP, KITA Sejati, Prestige and KITA Mekar.

Meanwhile, the property development segment’s revenue saw an impressive rise of 385.5% to RM115.6mil, attributed to higher progress billings for the Idaman Melur and Idaman Cahaya Phase 1 projects, along with the delivery of vacant possession for Laman Bayu Phase 3 and Phase 4 projects.

In line with the increased revenue, MGB reported a profit before tax of RM69.2mil.

MGB’s profit after tax in turn increased by three-fold, reaching RM51.1mil.

Earnings per share improved from 2.55 sen to 8.25 sen for FY23, resulting in a price-to-earnings ratio of 10.6 times based on the closing share price of 87 sen.

After three consecutive quarters of impressive financial performance, the growth momentum culminated in the fourth quarter of 2023 (4Q23), with revenue soaring by 109.7% to RM305.3mil year-on-year – driven by higher contributions from the construction and trading segment as well as the property development segment.

The construction and trading segment recorded a 73.5% increase in revenue, reaching RM241.5mil, while the property development segment recorded a remarkable nine-fold improvement amounting to RM63.9mil.

Consequently, profit before and after tax experienced substantial leaps of 170.1% and 259.9%, reaching RM18.4mil and RM13.7mil respectively.

‘Moving into 2024, we are … supported by our outstanding order book of approximately RM1.2bil to date and unbilled sales of RM0.7bil from ongoing property projects with a GDV of approximately RM1.2bil across the board,’ says MGB group executive chairman Tan Sri Ir Dr Lim Hock San.‘Moving into 2024, we are … supported by our outstanding order book of approximately RM1.2bil to date and unbilled sales of RM0.7bil from ongoing property projects with a GDV of approximately RM1.2bil across the board,’ says MGB group executive chairman Tan Sri Ir Dr Lim Hock San.

“Additionally, the two purchase orders that we received from Sany Alameriah totalling RM119.55mil for the supply and installation of 400 villas in Roshn Alarous development north of Jeddah is very encouraging to both our performance and branding.

“This should contribute positively to our revenue for 2024, and as our first international order, we look forward to applying our expertise in construction and IBS precast technology to deliver the best product to our customers.”
