SIAEC Group recorded a profit attributable to the owners of the parent company of $176.6 million for the financial year ending 31 March 2016, $6.7 million or 3.7% lower than the previous year. Revenue fell by 0.7%, from $1,120.6 million to $1,112.7 million. The decrease in airframe and component overhaul revenue was mitigated by higher line maintenance and fleet management revenue. Expenditure fell at a higher rate of 2.7%, or $28.3 million, to $1,008.3 million, in spite of a $12.7 million exchange loss incurred compared to the $4.8 million exchange gain in the previous year. Subcontract and staff costs registered the biggest decreases.


With expenditure decreasing at a higher rate than revenue, operating profit increased $20.4 million or 24.3% to $104.4 million. Share of profits from associated and joint venture companies at $94.2 million saw a decrease of $12.1 million or 11.4%. Contributions from the engine repair and overhaul centres at $50.7 million were reduced by $16.9 million or 25%, mainly due to lower work content on the engines serviced by Singapore Aero Engine Services Pte Ltd.


The Group recognised a $4.3 million loss on the closure of an associated company, and made a $2.5 million provision for impairment for another associated company. In addition, SIAEC Group recorded a $2.8 million surplus on the partial disposal of an associated company during the year, compared to a $5.8 million gain recognised from the restructuring of one of its subsidiaries in the previous year.


The Group posted a profit attributable to owners of the parent of $41.4 million for the fourth quarter ended 31 March 2016, flat compared to the same period last year. Revenue rose by $18.2 million or 6.6% to $294.2 million, with contributions from all the business units, particularly from line maintenance and fleet management. Expenditure increased $13.8 million or 5.5% to $266.7 million, with an increase in material costs, and an exchange loss of $8.2 million compared to a $1.6 million exchange gain in the corresponding quarter last year. This was partially mitigated by decreases in other expenses. As a result, operating profit grew by $4.4 million, or 19%, to $27.5 million.


Share of profits from associated and JV companies was $18.3 million, $3 million or 14.1% lower than the same quarter last year, with a $4.7 million or 36.4% decrease in contributions from the engine repair and overhaul centres to $8.2 million.

Operating out of the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport since March 2014, ST Aerospace (Guangzhou) Aviation Services is a 49:51 JV between ST Aerospace and Guangdong Airport Authority, focusing on commercial airframe maintenance and modification services for a wide range of Airbus and Boeing aircraft.
