Yeo Hiap Seng's Q3FY16 profit declines
DRINK manufacturer Yeo Hiap Seng's net profit for the three months ended Sept 30 dropped from S$9.42 million to S$5.1 million, weighed down by its food & beverage (F&B) division.
Revenue fell from S$109.48 million to S$94.68 million while earnings per share for the three-month period fell to 0.88 Singapore cent, from 1.64 cents a year ago.
The company said: "In the next 12 months, the group expects the F&B margins to come under pressure mainly due to soft economic conditions and weak outlook for our key markets; competitive selling prices; and uncertainty in raw material prices. Further, the fluctuations in the regional currencies will have an impact on our results."
