YOSHIYA International Corp is still in the red with its interim results, despite a 41 per cent increase in turnover on its year-ago period and a $7.08 million exceptional gain. The company showed losses of $1.06 million for the six months to January 31, compared with an $18.2 million loss in the corresponding period. The results were helped by a $7.08 million exceptional gain from the disposal of a subsidiary involved in a property project in China. Turnover rose 41 per cent to $291.5 million from $206.5 million. Company secretary Paul Fok Hei-yuen said the increase was mainly attributable to household products and biscuits sales. Rental income also contributed. Loss per share was 0.55 cent, against 9.47 cents previously. No interim dividend was declared.
