OKP Holdings has reversed back into the black with earnings of $3.3 million for the FY2020 ended December, compared to the $378,000 loss it posted in FY2019.

Earnings per share stood at 1.07 cents from loss per share of 0.12 cents a year ago.

Revenue for the FY2020 fell 14.5% y-o-y to $69.6 million, due to lower contributions from the construction and maintenance segments, and partly offset by 9.9% higher rental income at $6.3 million.

The increase in rental income was due to rental income from 6-8 Bennett Street in Perth, Australia, which has been fully occupied since the 2QFY2019 ended June.

Other gains increased by $8.2 million to $10.7 million from government support measures.

There was a one-off reversal of impairment allowance of $1.2 million following the completion of the disposal of CS Amber Development Pte Ltd, and a $0.8 million gain on foreign exchange largely due to the appreciation of the Australian dollar against the Singapore dollar.
