Wing Tai 1Q15 Report Summary - October 2014

Wing Tai reported revenue of S$160M with net profit attributable to shareholders of S$24M (about 15% net profit margin) for its 1st quarter ended 30 September 2014. The net profit is on par compared to corresponding quarter last year although total revenue dropped 28% against last year, thanks to the increase of shares of associated and joint venture companies.

Balance sheet wise, the group recorded total assets of S$4.9 Billion with total equity of S$3.0 Billion. This translates to a healthy total debts to total asset ratio of below 40%. The development properties stood at S$1.5 Billion, with investment properties S$0.6 Billion and Investment in associated companies & JV at S$1.3 Billion. I believe that the group still largely allocate its business in investment (whether in associated / JV or in properties) to help cushion during the slowdown of property market in Hong Kong and Singapore.

My Notes

Previously Malaysia Transport Minister announced that there were 5 stops in between KL and SG, namely Putrajaya, Seremban, Kuala Lumpur, Batu Pahat and Nusajaya apart from another terminal located at Singapore (most probably at Jurong lake district as announced by Singapore prime minister LHL). Some of us quite surprised that Muar and Malacca (Ayer Keroh) were not in the list.

Keppel Land 3Q2014 Report Summary - October 2014





Recycling of Assets Lifts Profits
  • Net profit dropped marginally by 3.3% y-o-y at $308 million on lower contribution from property trading
  • Contributions from property investment and fund management rose, accounting for a higher share of 34.4% and 15.8% of net profit respectively
  • Net tangible asset per share rose to $4.59, 10.6% higher compared with $4.15 as at end-September last year
  • Net debt/equity ratio improved to 0.37x
The Group recorded net profit of $308 million for the first nine months of 2014, down marginally by 3.3% year-on-year (y-o-y). As part of its continuing efforts to recycle capital, Keppel Land divested Equity Plaza and received a net gain of $59.5 million. The gain from the sale of Equity Plaza and a share of Keppel REIT’s gain from the divestment of its 92.8% stake in Prudential Tower was partly offset by a loss of $20.3 million arising from the dilution of interest in Keppel REIT and higher tax expense. Net profit would have been higher by 7% if not for a tax write-back of $30.7 million in the same period in 2013.
