LBS Bina’s stronger y-o-y per­for­mance in third quar­ter of 2017 and nine months of 2017 bot­tom line was at­trib­ut­able to bet­ter top line, as un­der­pinned by its ex­ist­ing projects namely Ban­dar Sau­jana Pu­tra, D’Is­land Res­i­dence, Ban­dar Putera In­dah, Si­naran Mahjota, Mid­hills, De­siran Bayu and Zenopy Res­i­dences.

JF Apex said LBS Bina chalked up RM1.3bil new sales as of end-Novem­ber 2017 (up 18% y-o-y against RM1.1bil as of end Novem­ber 2016), which ac­counted for 89% of the man­age­ment’s full year new sales tar­get of RM1.5bil.

“New sales achieved from Jan­uary till Novem­ber 2017 were mainly con­trib­uted by Ban­dar Sau­jana Pu­tra and re­cently launched Alam Per­dana in the Klang Val­ley, as well as Mid­hills in Gent­ing High­lands,” JF Apex noted.

The group’s un­billed sales are still re­silient, in­creas­ing fur­ther to RM1.6bil as of Oct 2017 or equiv­a­lent to 1.6 times of its 2016 topline.
