Annual Results Announcement (For the year ended 31 March 2018)

The Group maintained its emphasis on improving the Customer Journey in its core quick service restaurant (QSR) business, investing in our people to enhance the public face of our business, as well as making improvements in technology to increase efficiency and add value for our customers. We are confident that these investments will soon translate into profitability and will bolster the long-term competitiveness of our operations.

In line with the Group’s multi-brand strategy, our casual dining business continued to fine tune its brand portfolio with a view to building our capabilities and achieving sustainable growth and positive performance across this business segment.

Following a period of consolidation to sharpen our focus on the Greater Bay Area in Southern China, the Mainland China business delivered satisfactory growth in profit and same store sales during FY2017/18. Led by a team of seasoned local professionals, this business segment has leveraged its solid operational team and sensitivity to local market preferences to achieve steady growth.

Although profits were lower than expected during the year under review, the Group’s investments in people, technology and systems are now beginning to show promising results. We remain confident in the Group’s business prospects for both the near and long term.
