SINGAPORE - Restaurant and bakery group BreadTalk's second quarter net profit declined 13.6 per cent to $2.6 million despite a rise in sales.

Revenue for the three months to June 30 rose 10.5 per cent to $139.9 million. Earnings were dented by increases in the distribution and administrative expenses.

Distribution expenses went up 6.6 per cent to $55.5 million while administrative costs gained 32.3 per cent to $18.5 million

First half net dropped 4.9 per cent to $4.4 million as the closure of non-performing outlets led to asset write-offs amounting to $2.2 million.
