Coffeeshop operator Kimly reported a 7.2 per cent rise in net profit to S$36.5 million for the full year ended Sep 30, 2023, from S$34 million previously. The increase was due primarily to a S$2.5 million gain from the disposal of its confectionery business. Excluding the gain on disposal, net profit for FY2023 fell 0.2 per cent to S$34 million, when compared with the year-ago period, Catalist-listed Kimly said in a bourse filing on Monday (Nov 27). Revenue for the full year fell 1.2 per cent to S$313.9 million, from S$317.7 million a year ago. The decline in revenue was due primarily to a S$7.4 million drop in contributions from Kimly’s food retail division, which posted sales of S$183.8 million in FY2023, compared with S$191.2 million in the year-ago period.

Sembcorp Industries on Monday (Nov 27) said it has inked two separate agreements to acquire wind assets in China and India for a total consideration of S$200 million. The assets collectively amount to 428 megawatts (MW), the group said in an announcement on the Singapore bourse. Sembcorp’s wholly-owned unit Sembcorp Energy (Shanghai) Holding signed an agreement with Envision Energy Co to acquire the full share capital of Qinzhou Yuanneng Wind Power Co for an equity consideration of about S$130 million. Qinzhou Yuanneng owns 200 MW of operational wind assets in Guangxi, China, the company said. Another wholly-owned unit of Sembcorp, Green Infra Wind Energy, has also signed an agreement with Leap Green Energy – an independent power producer in Tamil Nadu, India.

Real estate developer Mapletree has received permission from the authorities to build an interim ferry and cruise terminal in HarbourFront, paving the way for the potential redevelopment of HarbourFront Centre, which currently houses a ferry and cruise terminal. The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on Sep 11 issued written permission to HarbourFront Four, a subsidiary of Mapletree, to build a two-storey interim ferry and cruise terminal. According to the document, the proposed terminal will have a floor area of 17,428.68 square metres (sq m), and can be used for a decade until Sep 11, 2033. Permission to relocate existing jetties and pontoons in the area was also granted. The interim terminal has to be demolished after its function ends.

Singapore’s services industries posted a 3.2 per cent year-on-year rise in business receipts in Q3, easing from the revised 3.8 per cent increase in the preceding quarter, data from the Department of Statistics (Singstat) showed on Monday (Nov 27). The latest print marked the fifth consecutive quarter of slowing growth. On a non-seasonally adjusted quarterly basis, business receipts were up 1.9 per cent in Q3, extending the previous quarter’s 2.2 per cent expansion. Singstat’s business receipts index excludes wholesale trade, retail trade, and accommodation and food services, which are tracked separately.


US

Oil prices fell on Monday, with the Brent benchmark dipping below US$80 a barrel as investors awaited this week’s Opec+ meeting and expected curbs on supplies into 2024. Brent crude futures were down 60 cents, or 0.7 per cent, at US$79.98 a barrel. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures lost 68 cents, or 0.9 per cent, to US$74.86. Both contracts lost US$1 in early trading. Last week, prices tumbled when Opec+ – the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) and allies including Russia – postponed to Nov 30 a ministerial meeting to iron out differences on production targets for African producers.

Shein has confidentially filed to go public in the U.S. as the Chinese-founded fast fashion juggernaut looks to expand its global reach with a long-rumored IPO, CNBC has learned. The retailer was last valued at $66 billion, and could be ready to start trading on the public markets as soon as 2024, people familiar with the matter said Monday. It is unclear how much the company is currently worth. But its valuation has been a central point of debate among Shein and the advisors it’s working with, people familiar with the matter said.

Shares of iRobot plunged 17% Monday after the European Union’s antitrust watchdog issued a warning that Amazon ’s planned $1.7 billion acquisition of the Roomba maker raises competition concerns. The European Commission opened an in-depth probe into the purchase in July and is expected to rule on the deal by Feb. 14. In a statement Monday, the commission said it has informed Amazon of its “preliminary view that its proposed acquisition of iRobot may restrict competition in the market for robot vacuum cleaners.” An Amazon spokesperson told CNBC in a statement that the company continues to work with the commission on addressing concerns identified in its probe.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

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. In the event that you choose not to obtain advice from a FA, you should assess whether the Products are suitable for you before proceeding to invest. 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.
