The turnover for the year under review declined to Sh1.37 billion down from Sh2.09 billion.

The firm says it reduced its administrative expenses by 17 percent due to prudent cost management that saw overheads drop from Sh2.3 billion to Sh1.9 billion last year.

The board is looking for a strategic investor in its turnaround goals.
