Reflections on Volume

Big volume without further upside equals distribution
Big volume without further downside equals accumulation

Volume tends to peak at turning points

KUALA LUMPUR: Rubberex Corp (M) Bhd posted net profit of RM5.61 million for the fourth quarter ended Dec 31, 2009, up 55.5% from the RM3.61 million a year ago due to sales contribution from its China subsidiaries and better profit margins and the company expects China to provide the bulk of the earnings this year.

It said on Friday, Jan 22 revenue rose 16.2% to RM91.72 million from RM78.9 million. Earnings per shares were 6.71 sen compared with 4.56 sen.

For the financial year ended Dec 31, 2009, net profit nearly doubled to RM16.56 million from RM8.63 million a year ago. Revenue was RM325.44 million compared with RM274.51 million.

"Such commendable achievement is mainly contributed by the strong demand of disposable gloves produced by its China operations. The board and management foresee that demand for disposable gloves will show further growth in 2010," it said.

Rubberex said additional production capacity has been installed in China which would increase the output by more than 25% to 5.6 billion pieces annually.

"Even though the industrial gloves segment of our Malaysian operation is showing improvement in orders intake amid encouraging signs of an economic recovery in the US, the management foresees that overall group's earnings growth for this year will continue to be derived mainly from its China operations.

"Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the group’s performance for financial year 2010 will be significantly better than the previous year," it said.
