Addvalue Technologies has secured a new order worth US2.1 million ($2.8 million) for its space connectivity business on March 27. The order for inter-satellite data relay system (IDRS) terminals is a repeat order from an existing IDRS customer. The latest order has brought the company‘s order book to US$19.4 million, taking into account the US$9.2 million of the order book fulfilled from April 1, 2023 to Feb 29.

Cordlife Group’s chief financial officer Thet Hnin Yi was the latest to be arrested by the Commercial Affairs Department (CAD) and released on bail after four of the company’s directors and its former group chief executive, Tan Poh Lan, went through the same process. The cord-blood bank on Wednesday (Mar 27) said Thet was also arrested in connection with investigations related to irregular temperatures in a certain cryogenic storage tank, first disclosed by the group on Nov 30, 2023.


Jefferies Financial Group’s earnings rose in its fiscal first quarter on strength in capital markets and renewed activity in the investment-banking business. Revenue jumped 35 per cent to US$1.74 billion in the three months to February on improved debt and equity underwriting, the firm said on Wednesday (Mar 27), as concerns about inflation and interest rates started to stabilise. The company’s capital-markets business had its third-best quarter on record, helping lift profit, while investment-banking revenue increased 31 per cent to US$739.7 million in a sign of a possible return of dealmaking. Earnings totalled US$149.6 million, or 66 US cents a share, up 12 per cent from a year earlier.

Gold prices held firm on Wednesday (Mar 27), supported by lower US Treasury yields, although bullion traded in a narrow range as investors stayed on the sidelines awaiting more cues on the Federal Reserve policy. Spot gold was steady at US$2,178.31 per ounce, following two session on gains. US gold futures edged 0.1 per cent lower to US$2,173.70 per ounce.

Disney backed down on Wednesday from a long-running legal battle with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over control of the Orlando-area land that is home to its most important resort, ending a yearslong feud and handing the governor a political victory. The company’s truce with the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District, the entity that oversees the resort’s land and infrastructure, gives DeSantis more power and influence over the company’s Florida operations. It also paves the way for Disney to expand its theme parks and resort properties in the state.

This material is provided by Phillip Capital Management (S) Ltd (“PCM”) for general information only and does not constitute a recommendation, an offer to sell, or a solicitation of any offer to invest in any of the exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) or the unit trust (“Products”) mentioned herein. It does not have any regard to your specific investment objectives, financial situation and any of your particular needs. You should read the Prospectus and the accompanying Product Highlights Sheet (“PHS”) for key features, key risks and other important information of the Products and obtain advice from a financial adviser (“FA“) pursuant to a separate engagement before making a commitment to invest in the Products.

A copy of the Prospectus and PHS are available from PCM, any of its Participating Dealers (“PDs“) for the ETF, or any of its authorised distributors for the unit trust managed by PCM.  

An ETF is not like a typical unit trust as the units of the ETF (the “Units“) are to be listed and traded like any share on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (“SGX-ST”). Listing on the SGX-ST does not guarantee a liquid market for the Units which may be traded at prices above or below its NAV or may be suspended or delisted. Investors may buy or sell the Units on SGX-ST when it is listed. Investors cannot create or redeem Units directly with PCM and have no rights to request PCM to redeem or purchase their Units. Creation and redemption of Units are through PDs if investors are clients of the PDs, who have no obligation to agree to create or redeem Units on behalf of any investor and may impose terms and conditions in connection with such creation or redemption orders. Please refer to the Prospectus of the ETF for more details.  

Investments are subject to investment risks including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. The purchase of a unit in a fund is not the same as placing your money on deposit with a bank or deposit-taking company. There is no guarantee as to the amount of capital invested or return received. The value of the units and the income accruing to the units may fall or rise. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of the future or likely performance of the Products. There can be no assurance that investment objectives will be achieved.  

Where applicable, fund(s) may invest in financial derivatives and/or participate in securities lending and repurchase transactions for the purpose of hedging and/or efficient portfolio management, subject to the relevant regulatory requirements. PCM reserves the discretion to determine if currency exposure should be hedged actively, passively or not at all, in the best interest of the Products.  

The regular dividend distributions, out of either income and/or capital, are not guaranteed and subject to PCM’s discretion. Past payout yields and payments do not represent future payout yields and payments. Such dividend distributions will reduce the available capital for reinvestment and may result in an immediate decrease in the net asset value (“NAV”) of the Products. Please refer to <www.phillipfunds.com> for more information in relation to the dividend distributions.
