BUKIT Sembawang Estates' net profit fell 22.7 per cent in its second fiscal quarter as it recognised less takings from its development projects.

Bukit Sembawang's shares closed at S$4.69 on Thursday, lower by 0.6 per cent or 3 Singapore cents, before the results were announced.

Revenue dropped 29 per cent to S$108.8 million during the quarter, and gross profit decreased by 31.1 per cent to S$33.5 million, as the company recognised less profit from development projects. The company recognises profits on projects based on percentage of completion. During the quarter, profits were recognised for Skyline Residences and Phases 6 and 7 of Luxus Hills.

The company expects buying sentiment for private residential property to remain "subdued".
