Ong Pang Aik, Lian Beng's executive chairman, commented: "The outstanding performance for FY2015 is a result of our diversified revenue streams. While not all business segments have grown in FY2015, the segments which have performed better have made an overall growth possible for us. We are continuing this strategy and are actively seeking opportunities local and overseas to further enrich our revenue sources."

For the fourth quarter, net profit rose 49.6 per cent to S$54.2 million while revenue rose 20.6 per cent to S$177.1 million.
