Reviewing its performance, MRCB said on Thursday, Aug 11 that the increase in revenue in the current period was due to higher contribution from the group's revenue recognition of ongoing and encouraging strata office sales of property development projects at Kuala Lumpur Sentral and the progressive works of the CONSTRUCTION [] and engineering activities.

Lower revenue was noted from the infrastructure and environmental segment due to completion of existing environmental projects, with continuation of new phases pending relevant authority approval, it said.

On its prospects, MRCB said that sales of the Q Sentral office block had surpassed the halfway mark whilst KL Sentral Park which would be completed in the second half of the year continued to attract strong rental interest.
