SembMarine's net earnings nearly halves to $116 million
RIG builder Sembcorp Marine has reported a 48 per cent decline in third quarter net profit to $115.5 million, mainly due to mainly to lower revenue and margin recognition.
Revenue for the three months to Sept 30 fell by 32 per cent to $892.4 million.
Turnover for rig building fell by 52 per cent to $428.4 million.
In the same period last year, there was resumption of revenue recognition upon completion and delivery of the Songa Eclipse semi-submersible rig. This boosted the prior year's earnings.
