KUALA LUMPUR (May 7): MSM Malaysia Holdings Bhd profits rose 7.05% in its first quarter ended Mar 31, 2012 to RM66.39 million from RM62.02 million a year ago, due to higher sales volume and average selling prices.

"The profit before tax for current quarter ended Mar 31 is 2% lower in other words RM88.0 million as compared to RM90.0 million for the same quarter last year due to lower gross profit margin recorded during the quarter as a result of higher cost of sales caused mainly by increase in raw sugar price," it added.
