PROPERTY developer OUE Limited reported a net profit of S$144.4 million for its financial year ended Dec 31, 2016, down 7.7 per cent from S$156.4 million in 2015.

PROPERTY developer OUE Limited reported a net profit of S$144.4 million for its financial year ended Dec 31, 2016, down 7.7 per cent from S$156.4 million in 2015.

Revenue more than doubled to S$884.2 million from S$431.5 million a year ago. Higher revenue came from sales of the OUE Twin Peaks condominium, as well as the consolidation of revenue from the One Raffles Place office tower after a previous acquisition of additional interest.

Lower profits were due to higher finance costs and net fair value losses on investment properties.

The company did not carve out its fourth-quarter results from the full-year results. A two Singapore cent final dividend was declared, bringing total cash dividend for the year to five Singapore cents, unchanged from a year ago.
