PRECISION manufacturer Shinvest Holding narrowed its full-year loss to S$182,000 from a year-ago S$1.5 million deficit as it shrank its costs and expenses.

On a per-share basis, 0.609 Singapore cent of loss was attributable to shareholders for the 12 months ended Aug 31, from 5.15 Singapore cents a year ago. No dividends were declared.

The maker and supplier of precision components and electro-mechanical assemblies said revenue eased 0.4 per cent to S$53.3 million.

Despite smaller sales, Shinvest cut other expenses by S$1.3 million, or more than 90 per cent, to S$115,000, helping to boost the bottom line.
