National utility Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) will repower Sungai Perak power stations (SSJ Sungai Perak) with a capacity of 650.75 megawatt (MW) to support Malaysia’s renewable energy (RE) aspiration and ensure its sustainable business growth. TNB, via its wholly-owned unit, TNB Power Generation Sdn Bhd, has received approval from the Energy Commission to implement the Hydro Life Extension Programme for six stations in SSJ Sungai Perak, with an investment of RM5.8 billion commencing this year.

Digi.Com Bhd (Digi) saw its net profit for the third quarter ended Sept 30, 2022 (3QFY22) drop 15.45% to RM264.48 million from RM312.82 million a year ago, mainly due to tax provision from the prosperity tax and higher net finance costs, coupled with higher net loss on fixed assets written off and disposed of, as well as lower interest income. Quarterly revenue fell marginally to RM1.53 billion from RM1.58 billion in 3QFY21, as total service revenue declined by 1.8% year-on-year, despite robust postpaid, business-to-business and fibre growth. The weak 3QFY22 earnings dragged Digi’s net profit for the cumulative nine-month period (9MFY22) lower by 15.96% to RM720.67 million from RM857.55 million a year earlier, while revenue was down 3.38% to RM4.59 billion from RM4.75 billion in 9MFY21.

Hextar Industries Bhd posted a net profit of RM3.09 million for the fourth quarter ended Aug 31, 2022 (4QFY22), a big leap from RM232,000 in the same quarter last year, driven by higher average selling prices at the fertilisers division and recovery in heavy equipment and equipment rental divisions. The group said its revenue for the quarter jumped 105% to RM61.4 million, from RM29.96 million a year earlier. For the full financial year 2022 ended Aug 31, 2022 (FY22), the group’s net profit climbed several folds to RM8.86 million from RM1.64 million, as revenue more than doubled to RM257.82 million from RM123.04 million.

Caely Holdings Bhd’s new board of directors, led by executive chairman Ng Keok Chai, said Virdos Lima Consultancy (M) Sdn Bhd will resume its forensic audit into allegations of suspicious and irregular transactions at the Perak-based lingerie manufacturer’s wholly-owned subsidiary Caely (M) Sdn Bhd. In June, two months after its appointment as forensic auditor, Virdos Lima had called it quits, saying it could not continue with its forensic audit, as critical information was not available. When contacted on Thursday, a spokesperson for Caely told The Edge that Virdos Lima, with support from the company’s new board of directors, will be able to continue with its forensic investigation.
