CL Group (Holdings) Ltd. expects to post a year-over-year decline in profit and total comprehensive income attributable to the owners for the fiscal year ended March 31.
The company attributed the expected fall in profit to a decrease in placing and underwriting commission of about HK$12.9 million and a fall in net fair value gain of financial asset at fair value through profit or loss of approximately HK$9.3 million.
The forecast was also attributed to an impairment loss on held-to-maturity investments of about HK$10 million and a decline in commission expenses of approximately HK$4 million.
For the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017, CL Group posted profit and total comprehensive income attributable to the owners of HK$42.7 million, or HK$1.94 per share.
The company will report its fiscal full-year earnings results June 21.
