Sunway REIT recorded net income of RM154.05 million in the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2011, mainly arising from fair value gain on portfolio of assets.

Of the RM154.05 million, of which RM41.07 million was realised and the remaining RM112.98 million unrealised. In the previous corresponding period, the realised net income was RM44.13 million.

The acquisition would be financed from its own funds. As at March 31, 2011, it had RM105.90 million in cash and retained earnings of RM625.81 million.

KKB Engineering Bhd’s subsidiary Harum Bidang Sdn. Bhd has secured a project from Kumpulan Bina Emas Sdn Bhd for a rural water supply project. The contract was to supply water pipes and pipe fittings.

It said the duration of the supply contract was about nine months, starting from the fourth quarter of 2011 and the contract sum was RM19.4 million.
