Ly Corp. 

Furniture maker Ly Corp. warned Monday it expects to report a loss for the second half and full year 2021, mainly on a revenue drop on the temporary closure of its hostels, factories and/or warehouse in January 2021 due to Covid-related worker quarantines.

In addition, Malaysia’s measures to stem the spread of the Covid virus, including the movement control order, resulted in production cuts and reduced operating efficiency, Ly Corp. said in a filing to SGX. 

Supply chain disruptions globally also impeded the delivery of finished goods, Ly Corp. said.
