Raffles Medical on Monday announced a net profit of S$39.4 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021, more than double the S$17.2 million the previous year in part due to stronger revenue growth from supporting the government’s Covid-19 initiatives.
Keppel DC Reit is acquiring its first data centre in China for 635.9 million yuan (S$132 million), its manager said on Monday as it announced a 12.5 per cent growth in distribution per unit (DPU) to 4.924 Singapore cents for the first-half ended June 30, 2021.
CSE Global’s business sectors secured S$104.4 million in new orders for Q2 2021, bringing its order book to S$212.1 million as at the end of the quarter. The total order value was lower than the S$114.9 million secured a year ago due to a lower order intake in the energy segment.
Ground handler Sats is setting up a S$37 million central kitchen at an airport in Bengaluru – its first such investment in the Indian market, it said on Monday.

Office-focused Keppel Pacific Oak US Reit (KORE) on Monday announced a half-yearly distribution per unit (DPU) of 3.16 US cents, up from 3.10 US cents the year before.

US electric carmaker Tesla reported its first-ever quarterly profit above US$1 billion on Monday as it reiterated its 2021 production targets despite supply chain upheaval.

Toymaker Hasbro posted a better-than-expected 54% jump in quarterly revenue, helped by rising demand for its “Dungeons & Dragons” tabletop game, while its film and television production unit rebounded after a year of pandemic-led shutdowns.
