Revenue, on the other hand, rose 8.3% to RM10.2 billion, from RM9.4 billion previously.

For the cumulative period, the group saw a 2.5% decline in net profit to RM528 million from RM542 million at the same time last year while revenue stood at RM19.7 billion, 7.8% higher than the RM18.3 billion seen before.

The group announced an interim dividend of 2 sen per share for FY20 ending June 30, 2020.

In a statement, group CEO Datuk Jeffri Salim Davidson said that while Sime Darby’s China-based operations performed commendably over 1HFY20, he was cautious over its prospects in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak.

“It is still too early to predict the full impact of the outbreak on our operations, particularly for China and Singapore, but we are actively managing the situation, with the safety and wellbeing of our employees, customers and visitors to our facilities being our top priority. We remain hopeful that the outbreak will be contained in the near future,” he said.
