Further, Mr.Lam stated that in order to facilitate its long term growth plans, steps have been taken to further strengthen the company's senior management team.

In his statement, Mr. Lam mentioned that due to higher sales volumes as compared to the previous year, TJL was able to record sales of Rs. 3.2bn for 2Q FY2013/14, 34% higher than that of last year; placing the 1H FY2013/14 cumulative sales figure at Rs.6.1bn, up 21% year-on-year.

On this strong top line growth, TJL was able to achieve a gross profit of Rs. 347mn for 2Q FY2013/14, up 79% year-on-year, and cumulative gross profit of Rs. 694mn for 1H FY2013/14.
