Revenue

Revenue decreased by $2.3 million or 13.6% from $17.1 million in 1QFY2016 to $14.8 million in 1QFY2017. The decrease was mainly due to decrease in revenue from customers in the Marine Sector, partly offset by an increase in revenue from Trading Sector.

Commentary

We expect the weak demand from the energy industry to continue affecting our ability in generating sufficient revenue to cover our fixed operating costs, thereby may result in a continuing loss for 1HY2017.

We will continue to manage our cost more effectively and continue to actively identify new potential markets and suitable opportunities for growth to attempt to mitigate the adverse financial performance in FY2017.
