[1] Based on (a) the assumption that 36,848,072,918 SCM Shares will be issued by Sembcorp Marine to the Company representing 54% of total number of SCM Shares on a fully diluted basis immediately after Closing, (b) the SCM Shareholders holding 31,389,099,152 SCM Shares, representing 46% of the total number of SCM Shares on a fully diluted basis immediately after Closing which, for the purpose of this computation, is the same number of SCM Shares held by the SCM Shareholders as at the last market day (26 April 2022) preceding the original announcement of the Proposed Transaction (“Last Market Day”), and (c) an issue price of S$0.122, being the volume weighted average price of SCM Shares for the last 10 trading days up to and including the Last Market Day. The number of DIS Shares to be distributed for every one (1) KCL Share held by an Eligible Shareholder is calculated based on the assumption that Company’s issued and paid-up share capital on Closing would be 1,751,959,918 KCL Shares (excluding treasury shares) which is the number of KCL Shares (excluding treasury shares) of the Company as at 31 December 2022, and on the further assumption that 33,436,214,314 DIS Shares will be distributed to Eligible Shareholders.

The actual issue price for the SCM Shares will be determined by SCM and the actual consideration used to derive the disposal gain arising from the Proposed Transaction and the actual value of the Proposed Distribution on completion of the Proposed Transaction and Proposed Distribution will depend on the last traded price of the SCM Shares on the first Market Day immediately following the date of Closing and the actual number of SCM Shares to be issued to the Company on such Closing.

[2] The pro forma value of the proposed distribution is calculated based on the proposed issue price of S$0.122, being the VWAP of SCM shares for the last 10 trading days up to and including the Last Market Day, per new SCM share and assuming a total of 36,848,072,918 new SCM shares to be issued to Keppel on completion of the Proposed Transaction. In this regard, the actual value of the proposed distribution on completion will depend on the last traded price of SCM shares on the first market day immediately following the date of such completion and the actual number of SCM shares to be issued on Closing.

The Company achieved higher net profit year-on-year and continued to progress towards its Vision 2030 goals.

All key business units apart from Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) were profitable. Nevertheless, Keppel O&M’s performance has also improved quarter-on-quarter with EBITDA for 1Q 2021 turning positive due to improving margins and productivity.

The Company’s revenue was S$1,889 million for 1Q 2021, which was stable compared to S$1,857 million a year ago, mainly due to higher contributions from the Urban Development and Asset Management segments, offset by lower revenues from Energy & Environment.

Keppel’s net profit improved significantly to S$300m in 1H 2021, reversing net loss of S$537 million in 1H 2020

The Company’s revenue was S$5,510 million for 9M 2021, which was 14% higher than S$4,818 million a year ago, underpinned by higher revenue contributions across all four key segments. The Company’s net gearing was lower at 0.76x as at 30 September 2021, compared to 0.85x as at 30 June 2021, mainly due to proceeds from asset monetisation and the issuance of perpetual securities, which were offset by the payment of 2021’s interim dividend.

Keppel reports net profit of S$160m in 1Q 2020

All key business units remain profitable despite COVID-19, many continue to provide essential services during Singapore’s circuit breaker.

Keppel reported a net profit of S$160 million for the first three months of 2020, 21% below the S$203 million for 1Q 2019, mainly due to an absence of gain from the divestment of a 70% interest in Dong Nai Waterfront City, Vietnam a year ago. Many Keppel business units provide essential services and continue to operate during the circuit breaker in Singapore.

The Company achieved revenue of S$1,857 million for 1Q 2020, which was 21% higher than that of 1Q 2019, due mainly to higher revenues from offshore & marine projects, property trading projects in Singapore, the power and gas business, and with the consolidation of M1. Revenue growth for 1Q 2020 was partly offset by lower contributions from property trading projects in China, environmental engineering projects and asset management.

Keppel reports net loss of S$537m for 1H 2020 due to Offshore & Marine impairments

Excluding impairments, the Company would have registered 1H 2020 net profit of S$393 million, 5% higher year-on-year, with resilient performance by other key business units 

Interim dividend of 3.0 cents per share declared for 1H 2020

Keppel reported a net loss of S$537 million for the half year ended 30 June 2020, compared to a net profit of S$356 million for 1H 2019, after S$930 million of impairments mainly related to Keppel Offshore & Marine’s stranded assets, receivables, stocks and share of impairment provisions from Floatel. Excluding impairments, the Company would have registered net profit of S$393 million for 1H 2020, 5% higher year-on-year, underpinned by resilient operations from other businesses in the Company.

The Company’s 1H 2020 revenue of S$3,182 million, was slightly lower compared to the S$3,315 million achieved in 1H 2019. Lower contributions from property trading projects in China, power and gas sales, environmental engineering projects and asset management were partially offset by higher revenues from O&M projects and the consolidation of M1 from March 2019.

Keppel announces business updates for 3Q & 9M 2020

The Company returned to profitability in 3Q 2020; makes steady progress on Vision 2030 with a 100-day programme to drive results.

Keppel has today released its first voluntary business update for 3Q & 9M 2020, following the adoption of semiannual reporting of its results.

Many of Keppel’s businesses provide essential services and continued to operate throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As the COVID-19 situation stabilises in Singapore and other key markets where the Company operates, Keppel’s employees are progressively returning to the workplace, while observing the relevant safe management measures.

The Company returned to profitability in 3Q 2020, compared to 2Q 2020’s net loss of S$697 million, though 3Q 2020’s net profit is significantly lower year-on-year. Except for Keppel Offshore & Marine, all key business units were profitable in 3Q 2020. However, the Company remained loss-making for the first nine months of 2020, due to the significant impairments of S$919 million, mainly from the offshore and marine business, recorded in 2Q 2020.

Keppel reports S$506 million net loss for FY 2020 mainly due to offshore & marine impairments

Excluding impairments, net profit for FY 2020 would have been S$446 million, compared to S$828 million for FY 2019.

The Company registered net profit of S$31 million for 2H 2020, recovering from a net loss of S$537 million in 1H 2020.

Proposed final cash dividend of 7.0 cts/share brings FY 2020’s total distribution to 10.0 cts/share.

Keppel reported a net loss of S$506 million for FY 2020, compared to a net profit of S$707 million a year ago, after impairments of S$952 million mainly due to the offshore & marine business, the bulk of which was recognised in 2Q 2020. Excluding impairments in both years, the Company would have registered a net profit of S$446 million for FY 2020, as compared to the net profit of S$828 million for FY 2019. Apart from Keppel O&M, all key business units of the Company remained profitable in FY 2020.

The Company’s revenue was S$6,574 million for FY 2020, 13% lower year-on-year, mainly due to lower contributions from the Energy & Environment, Urban Development and Asset Management segments, offset by higher revenue from Connectivity.

Keppel nets profit of S$203m in 1Q 2019

Keppel reported a net profit of S$203 million for the first three months of 2019, 40% below that of S$337 million for 1Q 2018.

The Company achieved revenue of S$1,531 million for 1Q 2019, which was $61 million or 4% higher than that of 1Q 2018. The increase was underpinned by higher revenues from power and gas sales, infrastructure projects in Singapore and Hongkong, asset management and the consolidation of M1, offset by lower contributions from property trading in Singapore. 

Keppel nets profit of S$356m for 1H 2019

Interim dividend of 8.0 cents per share declared for 1H 2019.

Keppel reported a net profit of S$356 million for the half year ended 30 June 2019, 39% below the S$586 million achieved a year ago, mainly due to lower contributions from en-bloc sales of property projects which amounted to S$416 million in 1H 2018.
