Group sales revenue for the third quarter of 2010 decreased by 8% over the corresponding quarter of 2009 to RM1{403 million. This is mainly due to a 12% decrease in group's average selling price and partially mitigated by 4% increase in sales volume.

The Group profit after tax for the first nine months of 2010 stood at RM224.8 million as compared to RM459.3 million and this mainly due to lower polymer-naphtha margins resulting from higher naphtha costs and lower average polymer prices.

The Group's borrowing was reduced from RM948.4 million as at 31 December 2009 to RM519.4 million as at 30 September 2010.

Profit before tax for the third quarter of 2010 stood at RM7.8 million which was lower by 91 % as compared to RM86.3 million registered in the preceding quarter of 2010. The reduction in' profit was mainly due to lower product price.

Group sales volume and product prices dropped by 7% and 1Q% respectively.

The Group borrowing was reduced further from RM703.7million as at 3D June 2010 to RM519.4 'million.

Demand for polymer products for remainder of the year is expected to be sustained. Polyolefins' margin however may be affected by the additional polyolefins supply from new manufacturing plants in the Middle East and China.

The Company has suspended operation on one of its cracker plants for 3D-days scheduled maintenance turnaround in October 2010.

We expect positive contribution from our integrated business for the remainder of 2010.
