SINGAPORE - Wing Tai Holdings announced on Thursday a disappointing year, with a cut in final dividends by half to six cents a share, from 12 cents last year.

Net profit for the year plummeted by 52 per cent to $254 million, on the back of an overall 40 per cent drop in revenue to $803 million.

Development properties, its core business segment, saw the biggest slide, dropping 49 per cent to $546 million.

Chief financial officer Ng Kim Huat attributed the drop to lower contribution from Foresque Residences, Helios Residences, Belle Vue Residences and Verticas Residences in Malaysia.
