Review of Performance

FY 2017 compared with FY 2016 Performance and segmental review


Total revenue increased by $33.0 million (+28%) mainly contributed from the Civil Engineering segment which recorded an 27% rise in revenue to $149.6 million. This was attributable to the much higher contribution from Changi Airport JV project which has progressed to a more active phase in 2017. Revenue for Property Development segment was related to sales of unit at Ark@Gambas. Revenue from Investment property segment remained insignificant.

Gross Profit

Gross profit decreased by $3.2 million ( -11%) to $27.1 million for the current financial year, mainly due to the drop in gross profit from the Civil Engineering segment as reversal of maintenance provision was lower than FY2016 and the lower gross margin for the ongoing projects. The contribution from Property Development and Investment properties is not significant.

Administrative expenses was $5.3 million, marginally lower than FY2016 mainly due to lower performance bonus provision offset by the higher staff costs and share of administration costs of the Changi Airport JV project.

Other income was $0.9 million lower mainly due to the reduction in interest income.

Provision for impairment loss of investment securities of $1.1 million were due to the provision of default risk for some held-to-maturity investment securities.

Other operating cost increase by $767,000 mainly due to exchange loss arises for the revaluation of USD holdings for USD committed material purchases.

The share of profits from the joint venture was only $490,000 as JV residential project, The profit of Skywoods has been fully recognized in previous years. Current year profit was relating to write back of project cost.

Profit before taxation decreased by $16.3 million to $24.0 million, resulting mainly from $11.0 million lower profit from Joint Venture and lower gross profit of about $4million from the civil engineering projects, higher provision of impairment of loss for investments securities.

Financial position and cash flow review

  • Increase in property, plant and equipment of 19.4 million, was mainly due to the acquisition of $6.5 million office units for own use, $2.7 million construction cost for warehouse and about $14 million of various plant and equipments to meet the requirement of ongoing projects.
  • Decrease in the investment in joint venture of $14.0 million was due to the dividend received from the Skywoods JV project.
  • Increase in investment securities (total of current and non-current) by $1.0 million, was mainly due to the acquisition of the held-to-maturity securities of $7.7 million offset by the redemption of bonds of $6.0 million and provision for impairment of $1.1 million
  • Increase in development properties by $27.8 million mainly due to the additional construction cost incurred for the Tuas development project (Shine@TuasSouth) for the current financial year.
  • Increase in trade receivables by $5.8 million mainly due to the higher progress billings for civil engineering projects in December 2017.
  • Increase in amounts due from/to a joint venture was mainly relate to additional amount contributed by the JV partners to fund the working capital of the joint venture project at Changi Airport.
  • Increase in prepayments and deposit was due to the down payment paid for ordering of plant and equipments for the new Changi JV project.
  • Net decrease of cash and short term deposits of $73.2 million for the current financial year was mainly due to the cash outflow for dividend payment of $63.7 million, acquisition of property and equipments of $21.2 million, net cash outflows for operations of $0.4 million offset by the $14.5 million dividend income from the Joint Venture.
