Broadway Industrial

Broadway Industrial reported Monday a second quarter loss after tax of S$2.71 million, swinging from a year-ago profit after tax of S$1.45 million as continued weakness in the hard disk drive market weighed on revenue.

Revenue for the quarter ended 30 June fell 37.2 percent on-year to S$63.63 million, the company said in a filing to SGX. In addition, the gross profit margin declined to 2.1 percent in the quarter from 5.9 percent in the year-ago period on the product mix and lower revenue, the filing said.

The strengthening of the Thai baht against the U.S. dollar resulted in a higher foreign-exchange loss, Broadway said.
