Company Briefs: Rotary Engineering

Rotary Engineering

Oil and gas infrastructure engineering firm Rotary Engineering suffered a 72 per cent slide in second-quarter net profits to $3.7 million. Revenue slumped 65 per cent to $67.38 million for the three months ended June 30.

For the first half of the year, net profits fell 61 per cent to $10.77 million while revenue fell 60 per cent to $156.77 million.

The company said the weaker showing for the quarter came as several major projects reached completion.

Its business has also been hurt by the protracted weakness in oil prices, said Rotary chairman and managing director Roger Chia Kim Piow.

There have been "delays in the award of projects as the oil majors and terminal operators adopt a cautious approach towards their infrastructure plans", he said.

Earnings per share for the second quarter was 0.7 cent, down from 2.3 cents a year ago.

Net asset value per share at June 30 was 44.7 cents, down from 45.2 cents at Dec 31, last year.
