Wing Tai's Q4 net profit dives

Monday, August 22, 2016 - 17:31

WING Tai Holdings has posted a net profit of S$1.88 million for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2016, down markedly from S$115.94 million net profit in the year-ago period.

This was on the back of a 35 per cent revenue drop to S$140.69 million. The lower revenue for Q4 FY2016 was due to lower sales from property development.

Another reason for the drop in net earnings was a 69 per cent fall in share of profits of associated and joint-venture companies to S$29.88 million due to lower contributions from the group's Hong Kong associate.

Earnings per share fell to 0.24 Singapore cent for Q4 FY2016 from 14.79 Singapore cents in Q4 FY2015.

Market voices on:

Full-year net profit fell to S$7.08 million from S$150.30 million.

Still Wing Tai is recommending a first and final dividend of three Singapore cents per share in addition to a special dividend of the same quantum.

This compares with only a first and final dividend of three Singapore cents for the preceding year.
