For Q4 FY2024, both Civil Engineering division and Bituminous Products see a slight decrease of revenue to RM23.01 million and RM7.6 million respectively. However, the Energy segment, representing Minetech’s venture into renewable energy, contributed RM1.78 million in revenue for Q4 FY2024, marking a successful entry into the renewable energy sector.

For the financial year ended 31 March 2024 (“FY2024”), Minetech reported a revenue of RM128.14 million, an increase from RM123.77 million in the previous year. The gross profit for the year was RM14.97 million, up from RM13.42 million in the previous year. The Company recorded a loss before tax of RM6.85 million, an improvement from the RM7.92 million loss in the previous financial year. The net loss for the financial year was RM8.82 million, a notable improvement from the net loss of RM11.87 million in the previous year. This improvement is primarily attributed to enhanced operational efficiencies, stringent cost management practices, and strategic project completions that reduced overall expenditure. The Company also benefited from increased contributions from the Energy segment, which helped offset declines in other areas.
