Rex: “I believe that Rex can, God willing, survive the cataclysmic period ahead just as we have survived the last decade of droughts, middle eastern wars, SARS, fuel price escalations, pilot shortages, the GFC, volcanic ash and the Euro zone crisis. Our fundamentals are solid with no debt burden. However, our profits are expected to drip by 15%-25% in the current financial year,” Lim Kim Hai, executive chairman.
