CATALIST-LISTED SK Jewellery Group on Friday reported a 57.9 per cent drop in net profit for the third quarter ended Sept 30.

Revenue fell 46.2 per cent to S$32.6 million from S$60.7 million a year ago. Earnings per share was 0.08 Singapore cent, down from 0.19 cent in Q3 of the previous year.

For the nine months ended Sept 30, net profit was down 11.3 per cent to S$3.2 million and revenue decreased 29.7 per cent to S$104 million. Earnings per share was 0.58 Singapore cent, compared with 0.65 cent in the previous year.
