January to March 2015 Financial Results (Final Part)

Companies were reporting their financial results for the quarter ended 31 March 2015.

The following table provides information on net profit attributable to shareholders for the quarter and year-on-year change between 2015 against 2014. Dividend column shows dividend declared for the quarter. The table is sorted by Net Profit figures starting with the highest net profits. (Note: I tracked certain stocks for their results.)

SBS Transit 4.7 44.6 1.04 0
SMRT 20.8 23.0 0.565 0.0175
SATS 51.6 21.1 1.30 0.09
SGX 88.2 16.4 0.823 0.04

M1 45.7 6.6 0.482 0
Keppel Corp 360.2 6.4 5.97 0
Singtel 938.8 4.5 1.55 0.107
DBS 1,269 3.0 15.42 0
UOB 801.0 1.6 20.53 0
CapitaLand 161.2 -11.8 4.05 0
StarHub 73.7 -12.4 0.131 0.05
SembCorp Marine 105.8 -13.6 1.48 0
SPH 69.6 -14.4 2.27 0.07
SembCorp Ind 142.2 -23.1 3.31 0

This is a mixed bag of results. SIA, SBS Transit, SMRT, SATS, SGX and OCBC had double digits jump in net profits. CapitaLand, StarHub, SembCorp Marine, SPH and SembCorp Industries were on the opposite end of the spectrum. Comfort Delgro, M1 and Keppel Corp had above 6% increases in net profits. Singtel’s net profit increased 4.5%, DBS’ net profit increased 3% and UOB’s net profit increased just 1.6%.

Some industries were facing challenges in the first quarter of 2015. StarHub and SPH were a surprise for me in this quarter. The uncertain global economic climate had an impact on the businesses moving forward. Some well known global companies are cutting headcounts so early in the year and some are planning different business strategies. I can see a rough ride in this economic climate.
