(Hong Kong, December 16, 1998) Mr. Ling Siu Man, Simon, Chairman of Tonic Industries Holdings Limited said, "during the period under review, our Group has marked significant growth in both turnover and profits. Our turnover and profit attributable to shareholders amounted to HK$966.1 million and HK$28.6 million respectively, representing an increase of approximately 43% and 66% respectively as compared to the corresponding period in 1997. Dividend of HK1.5 cents per share will be paid and earnings per share is HK7.1 cents. Cash on hand amounted to approximately HK$200 million.
The success are attributable to the Group's realisation of the importance of growth and therefore the Group has a long term plan towards achieving a steady and constant growth in turnover, profit and shareholder fund. This is done by increasing production capacity, improving internal control system thereby service standards and product quality, controlling production costs and also continuously promoting new and upgrade products.
The Group's manufacturing process are largely vertically integrated in that it has its plastic moulding and injection department, speaker box factory, silkscreen and oil spray department, terminal wire and cassette deck department. In October 1998, the Group has taken an important step towards enhancing vertical integration in manufacturing process by spending approximately HK$20 million to acquire a component factory in Qi Shi, Dongguan, PRC named Dongguan Gold Beam Electronics Limited, which produces plastic components, metal components, printed circuit boards and adaptors. Currently, most of these components and parts are supplied for the Group's use. We believe this will further improve the Group's profit margin and product quality.
