SIA Engineering's Q3 profit up 6.7% on restructuring gains

Monday, February 1, 2016 - 18:39

ONE-TIME restructuring gains boosted the earnings of SIA Engineering Group (SIAEC) in its third quarter.

The group's Q3 net profit rose 6.7 per cent year-on-year to S$49.4 million for the three months ended Dec 31, it said in a Singapore Exchange filing on Monday.

Revenue increased too, but at a slower clip, at 3.7 per cent to S$275.2 million, as a result of increased revenue from higher fleet management and line maintenance.

Expenditure increased at a lower rate of 2.2 per cent to S$246.2 million, due to lower expenses in other areas offsetting the increases seen in material and staff costs.
