Market voices on:

While recent results point to a softening of its core business of selling massage chairs in Hong Kong and China, with sales in the second half of 2014 down a few percentage points, founder Ron Sim reminded analysts on a Tuesday evening briefing to "look at us as a full-year company, not a quarterly company".

"If you want growth, take the full-year perspective. Topline was up 7 per cent. Margins were unchanged, bottom line up by one per cent, the company is still pretty cash-rich ... Cashflow has also increased, operating cash flow has increased," he said.

OSIM shares closed at S$1.895, down a cent, before results were announced.
