DIVESTMENT gains boosted results for Singapore Airlines Engineering (SIA Engg) for its first quarter.

Net profit rose from S$41.3 million for the first quarter last year to S$198.40 million, the group said in a Singapore Exchange filing on Tuesday evening.

During the quarter, the group made a S$141.6 million gain from the divestment of its 10 per cent stake in Hong Kong Aero Engine Services (HAESL) to Rolls-Royce Overseas Holdings and Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company. In addition, the group received a special dividend of S$36.4 million from HAESL following the divestment of HAESL's 20 per cent stake in Singapore Aero Engine Services to Rolls-Royce Singapore, bringing the overall gain from the divestment to S$178 million.

For the three months ended June 30, revenue was 2.1 per cent lower at S$271.6 million from the year-ago period due to a drop in fleet management revenue. This was mitigated in part by higher revenue from line maintenance and airframe and component overhaul.
