SINGAPORE (Mar 25): Boustead Projects is jointly developing an aerospace and high-tech park in the Subang Aerotech Park which will be leased to corporations in the aerospace industry when completed.

BP Aerotech (Subang), Boustead Projects’ wholly-owned subsidiary in Malaysia, last Friday signed a joint venture agreement with Malaysia Airports (Subang) to incorporate a joint venture company BPMA Subang to undertake the development.

BP Aerotech (Subang) will carry out the design, construction, project management, development management, testing, commissioning and fit-out works and asset management or property management for the park's aerospace developments.

BP Aerotech and its joint venture partner – MA Subang – will respectively hold stakes of 70% and 30% in BPMA Subang. MA Subang is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) which is listed on Bursa Malaysia.

Under the agreement, MAHB has granted BPMA Subang the rights to sublease up to about 34.66 acres of land next to Subang Airport for the aerospace developments, subject to MAHB obtaining the relevant authority approvals for the sublease.

Thomas Chu, MD of Boustead Projects, says, “Malaysia, in particular Selangor, is expected to continue playing an important role in the Asia Pacific’s growing MRO market for aircraft. Our partnership with MAHB will allow us to further expand our overseas presence in a high value sector where we are able to add value, given our integrated and growing capabilities across design-and-build and development, and our experience and track record in delivering projects in the aerospace sector which currently stands at over 200,000 sqm in gross floor area.”

As at 9.52am, shares in Boustead Projects are trading at 93 cents.

Right timing: STI’s upclimb supported by momentum and moving averages

SINGAPORE (Apr 20): There has been little change in the trend and chart pattern of the Straits Times Index. The index has been on a very glacial ascent towards 3,420, the target indicated when the index broke out of resistance at 3,190 in mid-Jan. Quarterly momentum eased during the past four trading sessions. The 100- and 200-day moving averages have turned positive. This coupled with positively placed DIs and rising ADX should continue to underpin the STI. The only cautionary signals are the somewhat overbought levels of short term stochastics and 21-day RSI, and stagnant vol....

SMI takes legal action against Hyflux; Maybank moves on Tuaspring

(Apr 20): SM Investments (SMI) has terminated its rescue agreement with Hyflux, it announced on Friday. Hyflux, on its part, had already on April 4 terminated the same agreement with SMI. SMI claims it has thus far abided by the agreement. “To clarify, SMI does not accept the purported termination of the Restructuring Agreement by Hyflux on 4 April 2019. This is because the termination was not in accordance with the terms of the Restructuring Agreement," said SMI. Under the agreement reached last October, SMI, led by Indonesian tycoon Anthoni Salim, was to have invested $530 million in....

SINGAPORE (April 19): The manager of CapitaLand Commercial Trust (CCT) has reported a 1Q19 distribution per unit (DPU) of 2.20 cents, rising 3.8% y-o-y from 2.12 cents due to higher contributions from Gallileo and Asia Square Tower 2.
