The list is sorted by net profits for the quarter ended 30 September 2012 in descending order. The previous quarter net profits (quarter ended 30 June 2012) are included in the last column for comparison purposes.

OCBC Bank’s net profit ranked above Singapore Telecom in this quarter due to a one-off gain on divestment of Fraser & Neave and Asia Pacific Breweries. If we exclude the divestment gain, net profit would be $ 724 million, which ranked third on the list after Singtel and DBS Holdings. UOB ranked fourth.

Great Eastern Life too had a one-off gain from divestment of Fraser & Neave and Asia Pacific Breweries. If we exclude the divestment gain, net profit would be $198 million.

When comparing total net profits between two periods, net profits for September quarter (excluding the one-off divestment gains) declined 5.56% from June quarter. This downward trend continued from the previous quarter.
