"The company has written back about S$1.6 million in Q2FY2017; at the same time it made provision of about S$0.6 million in restructuring costs and potential losses through swap options that have remained unrealised in this reporting quarter.

The group has been profitable based on its current operations and is expected to remain so for the next quarter as well as the full financial year," Advance SCT said.
