World-leading container manufacturer and logistics services provider Singamas Container Holdings Limited (Singamas) has  announced its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2014.

Net profit were down almost 52 per cent to US$13.28 million for the six months to June from US$27.49 million a year earlier because of unstable demand.

The Group recorded consolidated revenue of US$678,745,000 for the six months ended 30 June 2014, 16.9% higher than the corresponding period of last year (1H2013: US$580,854,000). Consolidated net profit attributable to owners of the Company amounted to US$13,275,000 (1H2013: US$27,492,000), while basic earnings per share were US0.55 cent (1H2013: US1.14 cents).

Mr. Teo Siong Seng, Chairman of Singamas, said: “Demand for new containers remained soft and production volume was low in the first quarter of 2014, which began to pick up entering the second quarter. However, average selling price was picking up in a slower pace; consequently moderated the Group’s performance.”
