DBhd Turnaroud Plan Yields Positive Results

Damansara Realty Bhd (DBhd) announced that it achieved a net profit of almost RM3 million (mn) for the nine months ended 30 September 2017, triumphing against a net loss of RM14.5 mn a year ago.

The integrated facilities management (IFM), project management consultancy (PMC) and property group saw a year-to-date pre-tax profit of RM5.6 mn, against a pre-tax loss of RM12.5 mn previously. This followed a 37% jump in revenue to RM182.3 mn against RM133.1 mn. This strong performance was attributed to the increased contribution from the IFM segment, which saw its revenue grow by RM35 mn.

“Our turnaround programme is producing results faster than expected, with revenue growing and our margins increasing,” said Brian Iskandar Zulkarim, Group Chief Executive Officer.

The turnaround has extended beyond the group’s operational performance, with DBhd recently reducing its net current liabilities by RM132 mn, following its completion of a large portion of its settlement agreement for 53-acre land in Johor.

Additionally, the IFM segment is expected to continue driving DBhd’s recovery, having secured over RM146 mn in new contracts over the last 11 months, with the most recent contracts acquired by Metro Parking worth RM1.1 mn at Dataran Maybank and Etiqa Buildings.
