Singapore Technologies Engineering (ST Engineering) has posted earnings of $305.9 million for its 2HFY2023 ended December, up 19.9% y-o-y on strong business growth, higher productivity and cost savings. 

Revenue was up 10% y-o-y to $5.2 billion, largely due to the growth of its commercial aerospace segment.

Cost of sales in 2HFY2023 widened by 8.4% to $4.25 billion, while gross profit grew 16.8% y-o-y to $992.34 million. Ebit increased 34% to $470 million.

For the full year, the company recorded earnings of $586.5 million, a 9.6% increase y-o-y. 

Revenue for FY2023 was up 12% y-o-y to $10.1 billion. Cost of sales for FY2023 grew 10.8% to $8.13 billion, while gross profit grew 16.1% to $1.97 billion. Ebit improved 24% y-o-y to $915 million.

With these new contract wins and after adjustments of revenue delivery, ST Engineering ended 2023 with an order book of $27.4 billion. The company expects to deliver about $7.9 billion from the order book in 2024.

The board has proposed a final dividend of 4 cents per ordinary share. Together with the three quarterly interim dividends of 4 cents per ordinary share, the total dividend for FY2023 will be 16 cents per ordinary share.

ST Engineering group president and CEO Vincent Chong says the company’s performance in FY2023 was underpinned by the strength of its commercial aerospace and defence and public security segments, as well as a high-graded portfolio.
