KUALA LUMPUR: UOA Development Bhd's pre-tax profit for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 rose to RM135.79 million from RM82.18 million in the corresponding quarter of last year. Its revenue increased to RM197.46 million from RM173.33 million previously.

For the half-year period, its pre-tax profit fell to RM198.30 million from RM237.87 million in the same period of 2011. Its revenue, however, increased to RM345.54 million from RM319.065 million

In a statement on AUg 23, UOA said it set an all-time record sales of RM900 million six months into financial year 2012, substantially surpassing the full-year's RM848 million in 2011.

"The strong sales were buoyed by good take-up of the company’s new projects, The Vertical Office Suites in Bangsar South and Le Yuan Residence in Happy Garden, as well as higher sales of all existing on-going development projects, it said.

Moving forward, UOA said, it would capitalise on its strong balance sheet to further acquire strategic development land here.

It said the development projects in the pipeline for the remaining six months of 2012 included Desa Green in Taman Desa, Scenaria at North Kiara and Kencana Square in Subang.

"These development projects have a total gross development value of over RM2 billion and are expected to substantially increase new sales for 2012," it said. -- Bernama

Firemen assisting one of the workers who was pulled out of the smoke-filled building

KUALA LUMPUR: Rescuers pulled out five workers out of a high-rise construction site enveloped in smoke along the Federal Highway, after a fire broke out in the building's basement.

Fire razed the basement of the planned service apartment in Persimpangan Taman Desa at about 4.30pm Sunday.

The place was being used to house over 500 foreign workers in makeshift wooden squatters, said the KL Fire and Rescue Department.

No one was killed in the massive fire as all the occupants were working in various parts of the 30-storey building at the time, said operations commander Imam Bukhari Susami.

"The workers were all evacuated and 60 FRD officers and 16 fire trucks were dispatched to the scene. It took us nearly three hours to extinguish the fire." he told reporters outside the razed 6,000 sq m basement.

Rescuers wearing gas masks had to brave thick black smoke to search for workers trapped in the building.

Five foreign workers, mostly Nepalese, were pulled out of the construction site and were sent to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for treatment.

One man suffered burns on his back, another injured his right leg during the evacuation, while the others suffered from smoke inhalation.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, said Imam Bukhari.

He said workers did not cook in the underground basement, but pointed out several fire hazards such as wooden walls and furniture.

"Currently, we are sweeping the basement to see if anyone else was trapped. We have not received any reports of workers unaccounted for.

"The structure of the building itself has not been damaged," he said.
