ROWSLEY Ltd on Wednesday posted a net profit for the third quarter that stemmed largely from an accounting gain due to an acquisition. This reversed its loss in the year-ago period, during which it also posted zero sales.
Net profit for the three months ended Sept 30, 2014 stood at S$52.6 million. In the year-ago period, the real estate company posted a net loss of S$2.6 million.
The net profit included a S$52.1 million accounting gain linked to its acquisition of RSP, an architectural and engineering practice in Singapore, in September last year. Given the contribution from RSP, the group also reported a revenue of S$21 million in the quarter, compared to no revenue a year ago.
