Total revenue Baht 11,711 million in Q3, 2008 as compared to Baht 6,370 million in Q3, 2007 higher by 83.8% attributable to a 54.5% increase in sales volume and higher average selling prices by 19.0% for PET polymers of Baht 56,748 per ton or USD 1,677 per ton in Q3, 2008, compared to Baht 47,678 per ton or USD 1,400 per ton in Q3, 2007.

The two plants acquired by the company on 31st March 2008 in Europe and expansions in StarPet and IRP contributed to the increase in sales volumes.

Cost of goods sold excluding depreciation increased by 85.4% from Baht 5,574 million during the Q3, 2007 to Baht 10,332 million in Q3, 2008, in line with increase in sales volume and higher cost of raw materials.
