  • Hong Kong Land Holdings saw its revenue soared 66.6 percent to US$1.9 billion for the full year ended 31 December 2013. This was attributed to better performance across all segments, in particular a US$674 million increased in contribution from the sale of properties. Despite the stellar performance, a negative change in fair value of investment properties dragged earnings down by 17.3 percent to US$1.2 billion. The company has declared a final dividend per share of US$0.12.
  • Jardine Matheson Holdings posted a flat revenue of $39.5 billion for the year ended 31 December 2013. This was mainly attributed to weaker performance at Astra, leading earnings to shrink 6.3 percent to US$1.6 billion. The company has declared a final dividend per share of US$1.03.
  • Dairy Farm International Holdings’ sales revenue increased 5.7 percent to US$10.4 billion for the year ended 31 December 2013, bolstered by moderately better performance across all business segments, in particular its food segment. Despite the higher distribution costs as well as administration expenses incurred, earnings jumped more than 10 percent to US$500.9 million. The company has declared a final dividend per share of US$0.165.
  • Mandarin Oriental’s turnover for the year ended 31 December 2013, registered a modest 3.1 percent increase to US$668.6 driven mainly by increased contributions across most geographical segments, partially offset by lower contribution in other Asia. With all else remaining relatively unchanged, turnover was able to flow directly into the bottomline as earnings soared 36.2 percent to US$96.3 million. The company has declared a final dividend per share of US$0.05.
  • LionGold Corp engaged CBMI construction, a subsidiary of China’s state owned enterprise, Sinoma Group, to undertake the modification, commissioning, operation and management of LionGold’s Owere gold plant for a 36-month term.
