SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC) recorded a profit of $40.5 million for the quarter ended 30 June 2018, an increase of $3.8 million or 10.4%, mainly from an increase in share of profits of associated and joint venture companies, partially offset by a decrease in operating profit.


Operating profit of $10.2 million was $8.5 million or 45.5% lower than the same quarter last year. Revenue at $257.7 million was $15.1 million or 5.5% lower year-on-year, mainly due to lower airframe and fleet management revenue. Expenditure decreased year-on-year by $6.6 million or 2.6% to $247.5 million, mainly due to an exchange gain of $2.8 million in the current quarter against an exchange loss of $1.8 million in the same quarter last year, and lower subcontract services costs.


Share of profits of associated and joint venture companies increased $11.3 million or 53.6% to $32.4 million, contributed by an $11.8 million increase in share of profits from the engine and component centres.
