Bukit Darah enters the Business Today TOP TWENTY ranking at number three with consolidated profit after tax increased to 158 percent to 6.6 billion rupees.
Growth was seen due to the company's two main investment holdings in PT Agro Bukit and Carson Cumberbatch performing well during the financial year. The major contribution came from Carson Cumberbatch where profit growth was derived from the conducive environment in the country that had a positive impact on all the company's businesses and the maturing oil palm plantation business in South East Asia. The key investment sectors of brewing and investment showed growth and as such Carson Cumberbatch recorded a profit of 5.4 billion rupees for the year. The profits of PT Agro Bukit was marginal as the plantation is just coming out of its gestation period into maturity.
The two segments of the business are closely linked and operated under a common business vision and strategy.
The market capitalisation of the company increased to 30 billion rupees, reflecting a growth of 280 percent.
