karyon earnings

For the quarter ended 31 Mar  2013, the group recorded revenue of MYR34.2m, a rise of 19.4% compared to the corresponding quarter last year. The higher revenue was attributed to the growth in sales volume coupled with higher selling prices for polymeric products. KARYON’s polymetric division saw higher sales volumes and
profit margins  while its oleochemical division was weaker due to a slight decrease in selling prices despite the higher sales volume.  KARYON  was  recently promoted to the Main Board of the KLSE from the Ace Market that it used to be trading in.

Moving forward, KARYON will continue to focus on improving its  operating  efficiencies.
