KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 3): Lingui Developments Bhd posted net loss of RM28.06 million in the first quarter ended Sept 30, 2011 versus net profit of RM39 million a year ago as it was adversely affected by losses in fair value of biological assets.

It registered an operating profit of RM19.46 million compared with RM9.59 million a year ago.
