OUE: 1Q13 net profit - 92% y/y to $1.8M despite 8% revenue increase to $105.4m on higher property development sales offset by lower hotel revenue. While gross profit slid 6% due to lower rentals from 6 Shenton Way Tower 1, bottom line was hit by jump in admin expenses (+62%) and surge in finance expense to $33.5M (+80%) on more borrowings, forex loss arising from translation of a USD loan and fair value loss on USD/SGD currency swap. Book value stayed at $3.49.

CH Offshore: 3QFY13 net profit sank 57% y/y to US$4.8M due to absence of gain from sale of vessel (3Q12: US$3.9M) and lower revenue (-25%) as 2 vessels completed their contracts in Jan 13 and were subsequently docked in Mar for mandatory overhaul and inspection.

Hutchison Port: Dock workers at its HK Int’l Terminals (HIT) ended their 40-day strike, accepting a 9.8% wage increase. The workers had earlier demanded a 23% gain, while employers offered a 7% increase. HIT had highlighted that daily loss narrowed to HK$2.4M on 5 Apr after some strikers returned to work from HK$5.0M earlier.

Intraco: Acquires an additional 9.6% stake in packaging and resin firm Dynamic Colours, taking its total interest in the packaging and resin firm to 39.5% and triggering a mandatory conditional cash offer at $0.185 per share.

MTQ: 4Q13 net profit soared 94% y/y to $7.7M on 179% spike in revenue to $93.7M, boosted by maiden contributions from newly acquired oilfield engineering subsidiary Neptune Marine Services and organic growth in all segments. Maintained final DPS of 2¢, taking full year tally to 4¢.

Oceanus: Widened 1Q13 net loss to RMB45.2M versus RMB39.1M a year ago. This came from a 69% fall in revenue to RMB14.8M due to poor demand for abalone that had not yet reached maturity as well as a frugality drive by the new government in China, which dampened conspicuous spending, especially high end consumption.

Foreland Fabrictech: Incurred net loss of RMB9.5M in 1Q13 vs Rmb29.6m profit a year earlier as revenue collapsed 99% from RMB161.9M to RMB1M due to relocation of existing production facilities to a new factory site, expected to be fully operational by end of 2Q13. The group maintained its net cash position with NAV of RMB1.22.
