Sales from the knitted fabric and dyed yarn business, which accounted for nearly 70 per cent of the company’s total revenue in H1 FY 2013-14, rose by nearly 20 per cent, year on year at HK$ 1,745 million driven by higher export orders from the US even as domestic demand remained soft.

Sales from the company’s garment business witnessed a 6.7 per cent dip at HK$ 549.9 million in the six months ended 30 September 2013 from the same period a year ago as revenue from garment manufacturing fell due to a slowdown in orders in the Chinese domestic market amid sluggish economic growth.
