MTQ Corp said earnings declined 35% to $4.2 million for 1QFY2015 ended June from $6.5 million a year ago as revenue fell 19% to $76.7 million. This translates into earnings per share of 2.75 cents for the first quarter.

The decrease in earnings was largely due to the absence of vessel campaign at Neptune Marine Services which had previously boosted revenue. Within the Oilfield Engineering segment, the Singapore business recorded lower sales while the group had a quiet start from the Binder Group.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is looking at ways to give retail investors greater access to corporate bonds in an effort to widen their investment choices, The Straits Times reported.

MAS Managing Director Ravi Menon said on Thursday that low interest rates as well as increased affluence and sophistication have spurred investors to seek better returns from financial investments.

The MAS plans to review how retail access to fixed-income products can be improved, which would involve making it easier for issuers to offer bonds to retail investors, while maintaining sufficient safeguards.
