Emerging Towns and Cities, Hong Lai Huat

PROPERTY developers Emerging Towns & Cities Singapore (ETC) and Hong Lai Huat Group are expecting to report losses for FY2020 ended December 2020.

ETC attributed the upcoming loss to a combination of the recognition of fair value losses on its investment properties at its Golden City project, as well as lower revenue recognised for the project's sales property units.

Hong Lai Huat cited the decline in revenue resulting from the adverse impact of the Covid-19 pandemic as a reason for the loss.
