Keppel Corporation has agreed to acquire an initial 50 per cent stake in Aermont Capital, for a consideration of up to 356.9 million euros (S$521.8 million), the asset manager and operator announced on Wednesday (Nov 29). This includes a deposit upon entering the agreement, a closing amount, and post-closing adjustments. It plans to subsequently acquire the remaining shares in the European real estate manager, for a maximum of 575 million euros. That brings the maximum consideration for the acquisition to 931.9 million euros. The base of the consideration is contingent on Aermont’s performance, said Keppel, adding that the two have yet to agree on a multiple which would determine the price of the acquisition.

Econ Healthcare has announced its proposed acquisition of Ambulance Medical Service (AMS), an emergency ambulance and medical transport operator in Singapore, for an aggregate consideration of $8.8 million on Nov 29. According to Econ Healthcare, its acquisition of AMS, which has over 15 years of expertise in the industry, marks a significant milestone for the company in its efforts to further strengthen its suite of healthcare services and ecosystem of care. As at Nov 29, AMS manages a fleet of 57 ambulances. Its key market segments include provision of 24/7 ambulance transport services for both emergency and non-emergency cases, medical standby and coverage at events. Based on AMS management accounts as at June 30, the book value of its issued capital stood at $11.0 million.

Interra Resources has announced that it has been granted a 12-month extension by Singapore Exchange Securities Trading (SGX-ST) to meet the criteria required to be removed from the SGX watch-list. For its FY2022, the oil producer recorded a consolidated pre-tax profit, fulfilling part of the exit criteria. However, as at Nov 6, the company had not had an average daily market capitalisation of $40 million or more over the last six months. The waiver granted to Interra Resources expires on Dec 4, 2024. Shares in Interra Resources closed unchanged at 3.6 cents on Nov 29.


US

Oil prices rose more than US$1 a barrel on Wednesday as investors focused their attention on expectations of fresh supply cuts from Opec+ and looked past a jump in US crude, petrol and distillate stockpiles. Brent crude futures advanced by US$1.42, or 1.7 per cent, to settle at US$83.10 a barrel, while US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures gained US$1.45, or 1.9 per cent, to settle at US$77.86 a barrel. Members of Opec+, which includes the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies such as Russia, are due to hold a policy meeting on Thursday. Talks ahead of the meeting were focusing on additional cuts, although details were yet to be agreed, sources close to the group told Reuters.

Salesforce added 7% after releasing third-quarter adjusted earnings of $2.11 per share, higher than the $2.06 per share analysts polled by LSEG were expecting. The firm’s third-quarter revenue of $8.72 billion fell in line with expectations. Salesforce on Wednesday raised its fiscal 2024 forecast for operating cash flow growth to 33% from 30%. It also said revenue for the fiscal fourth quarter will increase about 10% to between $9.18 billion and $9.23 billion. Analysts were expecting revenue of $9.21 billion, according to LSEG.

Snowflake stock rallied more than 7% after its third-quarter earnings beat analyst expectations. The cloud company reported adjusted earnings of 25 cents per share on $734 million of revenue, higher than the anticipated 16 cents per share on $713 million analysts were expecting, according to LSEG. The company also released fourth-quarter product revenues guidance above consensus estimates.

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.
