Market voices on:

The listed restaurant operator said the loss in revenue was mainly due to the closure of three outlets in the second and third quarters.

The decrease in contribution from the three outlets was partly offset by a revenue increase from existing and additional four new outlets.

Nine-month revenue for the listed company's food processing distribution and procurement services segment also increased by S$200,000 or 19.4 per cent.

The company also reported an 11.3 per cent decrease in its employee benefits expenses from a reduction in headcount and related staff costs due to the closure of the three outlets.
