|Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income
For FY2015, the Group recorded a 8.7% or $12.73 million increase in revenue compared to FY2014, mainly due to the contribution of revenue from
new cafeterias launched in second half of FY2015 and significant growth in revenue from the food court segment. Food catering, food retail and fast
food segments also experienced organic growth in revenue during FY2015. Consequently, the increase in revenue resulted in an increase in gross
profit and cost of sales.
The Group posted a Profit After Tax (PAT) from continuing operations of $7.15 million for FY2015 compared to $6.03 million for FY2014, mainly due
to better operating margin contributions from food courts, Peach Garden restaurants and food catering.
As a result of business growth, Marketing and Distribution costs and Administrative expenses (inclusive of depreciation expenses) increased by
27.1% and 13.5% respectively in comparison to FY2014. The increase in Marketing and Distribution costs was mainly due to an increase in
marketing budget for new cafeterias launched during FY2015 and other retail brands. The increase in Administrative expenses (inclusive of
depreciation expenses) was mainly due to the increase in manpower costs caused by the labour crunch during FY2015. Finance costs increased
due to increase in interest expenses as additional bank loans taken up to finance the new cafeterias and the new HQ building during FY2015.
Repair and Maintenance and Upkeep of Motor Vehicles decreased due to the replacement of some trucks in FY2015 which resulted in lower vehicle
repair and upkeep costs, lower fuel costs incurred due to the lower energy price and lower repair and maintenance costs incurred for the old HQ
building in view of the completion of new HQ building in early 2016.
Other credits increased mainly due to the increase of government grant eceived during FY2015. Impairment of plant & equipment of $0.52 million
was provided for certain food retail outlets under commercial rental leases which will expire in FY2016 or FY2017 and not expected to be renewed.
The increase in income tax expenses was the result of increase in taxable income for FY2015.

The increase of $30.91 million in Property, Plant And Equipment was attributed to the capitalisation of the costs of investment related to the new HQ
building in progress.
Other assets (Non-Current and Current) increased by $2.06 million during Y2015 mainly due to prepayments and deposits paid for new cafeterias launched during FY2015 and advance and tender deposits paid for outlets and food courts.

cafeterias, food retail and fast food outlets and new HQ building in progress during FY2015.
