  • StarHub recognised a 6.2 percent decline in 4Q13’s total revenue to $613.7 million from $654.1 million in 4Q12, mainly due to lower sales of equipment, while operating expenses was down 5.5 percent to $521.8 million amid lower cost of sales. Earnings in 4Q13 shrank 4.8 percent to $83.7 million, compared to $87.9 million in 4Q12. For the year, revenue decreased to $2.4 billion and earnings increased to $370.7 million.
  • Singapore Airlines’s 3Q14 revenue was flat at $3.9 billion, mainly attributed to the intensity of competition and unfavourable exchange rate movements. Despite company keeping 3Q14′s expenditure in check, losses and impairments amounting to $46 million dragged earnings down by 64.8 percent to $50.1 million. For the nine months, revenue came in flat at $11.6 billion, while earnings increased 7.1 percent to $332.5 million.
  • Ascendas Hospitality Trust recorded a 10 percent increase in gross revenue to $56.6 million from $51.4 million in 3Q14, due to additional revenue contribution from newly acquired assets. However, earnings for the quarter shrank 90.1 percent to $0.3 million amid a $19 million loss on its business trust arm, partially offset by lesser losses from its real estate investment trust arm. Gross revenue for the nine months increased to $157.7 million leading to a net profit of $0.9 million.
