SINGAPORE - Vibrant Group, formerly known as Freight Links Express Holdings, posted an 11.2 per cent rise in net profit to $42.7 million.

This was on the back of an 8.4 per cent increase in revenue to $191.4 million for the year ended April 30.

Gross profits surged by 20.3 per cent to $59.3 million, mainly due to increased revenue from freight and logistics business and provision for financial services.

On the other hand, profit from operations fell by 19 per cent to $31.9 million, mainly due to fair value loss on quoted equity securities.
