Malaysia: Tasek Corp Bhd's net loss for the third quarter of 2019 narrowed to US$1.3m from US$1.45m a year earlier. It said that it was hampered by high production costs and increased price competition. Its revenue however, rose by 6.9% to US$38.7m compared with US$36.2m in the third quarter of 2018.

Over the first nine months, Tasek's net loss widened to US$5.6m, from a revenue of US$102.7m, up by 1.3% year-on-year. "The board views the outlook for the last quarter of the year to remain challenging if pricing pressure continues," reported Tasek, as cited by the Sun Daily.
