Oxley Q4 net profit dives 81%

Oxley Holdings' net profit dived 81 per cent to S$25.59 million for the fourth quarter ended June 30 from S$137.7 million a year ago, the property developer reported on Tuesday.

Q4 revenue fell 57 per cent to S$100.43 million, mainly on lower revenue contribution from a project in the United Kingdom. Earnings per share dipped to 0.62 Singapore cent from 3.4 Singapore cents a year ago.

For the full year, net profit was S$146.29 million, halved from S$285.03 million in the previous year. Revenue was down 42 per cent to S$686.07 million, compared with S$1.19 billion in FY2018.

Earnings per share for the full year was 3.58 Singapore cents, down from 7.27 Singapore cents a year ago.

Market voices on:

As at June 30, the group had total unbilled contract value of S$3.9 billion, of which about S$2.2 billion was attributable to projects in Singapore and about S$1.7 billion attributable to overseas projects.

Having sold its interest in Oxley Beryl and the commercial and residential developments in Dublin Landings, the group is on track to reduce its borrowings and gearing ratio and in further good position to make its upcoming bond repayment, it said in a press statement.

Oxley is recommending a final dividend of 0.68 Singapore cent for the financial year. Together with an interim dividend of 0.32 Singapore cent that was paid in May, the full-year dividend for FY2019 is one Singapore cent per share.

Last year, it paid out a final dividend of 0.78 Singapore cent.

Oxley shares closed flat at S$0.305 on Tuesday before the results were posted.
