The company said that 99% or RM164.97 million of its revenue was derived from its construction and civil engineering segment while its ICT solutions and services segment accounted for the remaining RM1.11 million.
Siab said the outlook for its industry remains positive in light of the growth in the Malaysian construction industry.
