Eu Yan Sang third-quarter profit leaps 54% to $8.4 million

Traditional Chinese medicine retailer Eu Yan Sang's net profit shot up 54 per cent year-on-year to $8.4 million for the third quarter.

Revenue for the three months ended March 31 climbed 13 per cent to $101.2 million from the preceding year.

Eu Yan Sang said this was mainly due to a strong performance from Hong Kong and Malaysia as a result of its Chinese New Year festive promotions.

Earnings per share were 1.91 cents for the quarter, up from 1.24 cents the corresponding period a year ago.
