Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization for 2Q14 and 1H14 stood at $48.4 million and $98.3 million respectively. For the six-month, ordinary distribution of $0.0412 per unit has been declared.

Aspial Corporation registered a 24.7 percent decrease in revenue to $121 million in 2Q14, mainly due to lower revenues from both property business and jewellery business. Net profit for the quarter slipped 92.5 percent to $2.2 million on the back of lower turnover, higher finance cost and other operating expenses and a drop in share of results of associates. For the six-month period, revenue contracted 2.3 percent to $249 million and net profit fell 25.4 percent to $30 million.

Falcon Energy Group’s 1Q15 revenue more than tripled to US$92.7 million, mainly due to a significant increase in income from the oilfield services division from US$7.2 million in 1Q14 to US$71.6 million in 1Q15, arising from the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning contracts secured in 2H13. However, a rise in administrative expenses coupled with a drop in share of net profit of associates, though partially offset by a jump in share of profit of joint venture, resulted in net profit declining 2.4 percent to US$8.1 million in 1Q15.

Ho Bee Land announced a more than four-fold increase in revenue to $26.8 million in 2Q14, bolstered by higher rental contributions from the group’s investment properties, mainly contributed by the rentals of office buildings in Singapore and in London. However, net profit fell 53.5 percent to $12.2 million, due to the absence of a $25.9 million gain on the disposal of Hotel Windsor last year. For 1H14, revenue dropped 34.3 percent to $43.9 million and net profit contracted 79.2 percent to $16.3 million, attributable to the due to absence of a $47 million gain on sale of investment interest in Chongbang Holdings in China.

Ntegrator International reported a 15.8 percent jump in revenue to $24.3 million in 1H14, mainly due to higher contributions from its project management and maintenance services division. Gross profit shrunk 10.9 percent to $4 million on the back of higher equipment and consumables cost and a lower positive change in inventories and contract work-in-progress recorded. Consequently, net profit plunged 96.2 percent to $21,000 in 1H14.

Super Group posted a 4.8 percent drop in revenue to $131.7 million in 2Q14, due mainly to lower branded consumer sales, particularly in the South East Asia market. Due to the absence of a one-off gain of $17.1 million from the disposal of a 35.3 percent stake in Sun Resources Holdings in 2Q13, net profit fell 58.8 percent in 2Q14 to $15 million. Similarly, 1H14’s revenue shrunk 5.5 percent and net profit decreased 43.9 percent to $32.9 million.

Valuetronics Holdings recorded a 2.5 percent rise in revenue to HK$626.6 million in 1Q15, mainly attributable to the growth in industrial and commercial electronics customers, offset by a decrease in consumer electronics customers. Higher administrative expenses eroded the gains in turnover resulting in a 1.9 percent dip in profit from operations to HK$38.7 million. Overall, on the back of lower income tax expenses, net profit was up marginally by 1.8 percent to HK$33.9 million in 1Q15.

Vicom’s 2Q14 revenue rose 2.4 percent to $27.3 million, on the back of higher business volume. Operating expenses for the quarter was 1.8 percent higher in tandem with the increase in turnover. Consequently, net profit increased 5.5 percent to $7.2 million in 2Q14. For the six-month period, revenue and net profit grew 2.9 percent and 6.5 percent respectively, to $54.2 million and $15.2 million.
