Performance of companies in third quarter (Part 1)

I wrote a post on 3 October revealing the second quarter performance of some companies. This post is to see how some companies are doing for the third quarter, period from July to September 2011.

The quarter profits attributable to shareholders are in dollar terms and the figures in brackets show the percentage change over the same quarter of the previous year. The interim dividend (cents per share) is the next number. (Except for SPH whose results are for the full year.)

Companies with increase in profits

Keppel Corporation $406 m (+33.3%) No dividend proposed
Singapore Exchange $88 m (+18%) 4 cents per share
Raffles Medical Group $11.8 m (+10.3%) No dividend proposed
DBS $762 m (+6%) No dividend proposed

Companies with reduction in profits

Singapore Press Holdings – Full year results $388 m (-22.0%) Final dividend 17 cents per share

UOB $522 m (-24.2%) No dividend proposed
CapitaLand  $80.2 m (-82.6%) No dividend proposed
SMRT $34.1 m (-25.6%) 1.75 cents per share
Singapore Post $30.6 m (-22.5%) 1.25 cents per share
Great Eastern Holdings $40.4 m (-76%) No dividend proposed

The above information can be viewed from the announcements made by the listed companies to Singapore Exchange through the Singapore Exchange web-pages.
