For the quarter, the company reported revenue of MYR 1,280.2 million against MYR 1,216.5 million a year ago. Profit from operations was MYR 208.1 million against MYR 203.4 million a year ago. Profit before tax was MYR 154.7 million against MYR 152.7 million a year ago.

Purchase of property, plant and equipment and intangibles were MYR 459.9 million against MYR 448.2 million a year ago. Revenue for the quarter was high mainly due to the increase in subscription and other revenue of MYR 56.7 million and MYR 11.7 million respectively, offset by decrease in advertising revenue of MYR 4.7 million. The decrease in net profit is mainly due to an increase in depreciation of property, plant and equipment of MYR 2.1 million, amortization of software of MYR 3.0 million and higher tax expenses by MYR 15.1 million, primarily due to a reversal in overprovision of tax amounting MYR 9.8 million in the corresponding quarter. These are offset by an increase in EBITDA of MYR 10.1 million. Increase in cash of MYR 583.1 million as compared with corresponding quarter is mainly due to higher operating cash flows of MYR 115.9 million, sales of unit trust of MYR 376.6 million, lower payment of set-top boxes by MYR 59.4 million and lower dividend payment of MYR 39.0 million. This was offset by higher acquisition of property, plant and equipment and intangibles of MYR 5.9 million.
