GKE Corp made a S$558,000 loss in the second quarter from a profit of S$367,000 a year ago owing to operational losses in the ready-mix concrete manufacturing plant and lower profit contribution from warehousing and logistics division.

Significantly lower charter rates for the liquefied gas carrier vessel on the back of a global economic slowdown which resulted in a loss of S$42,000 from its share of results of joint venture in the quarter also led to the losses.

The logistics firm posted a 45.3 per cent jump in revenue for the three months to November to S$11.94 million from S$8.2 million a year ago led by higher revenue contributions from chemical warehouse operator Marquis Services and ready-mix concrete maker Wuzhou Xing Jian Readymix Co.

GKE Corp made a loss per share of 0.09 Singapore cents in the quarter versus an earnings per share of 0.06 Singapore cents a year ago.
