In a report submitted to Bursa Malaysia, the company said that the significant drop in revenue and the resulting pre-tax loss were mainly due to the negative impact of the ongoing conflict in the Middle East on consumer sentiment.

“The decline in revenue was partly offset by cost-saving measures implemented by the company, which helped reduce the pre-tax loss,” it wrote.
