Wing Tai Holdings profit surges 255 per cent
Net profit surged 255 per cent for retail/property company Wing Tai Holdings to reach S$7.4 million (US$5.2 million) in its third quarter.
This takes its net profit for the nine months to the end of March to S$10.6 million, a leap of 104 per cent.
However, the Hong Kong-listed mall owner’s quarterly revenue slipped 35 per cent to S$73.5 million, while the figure for the nine months dived 49 per cent to S$204.6 million. The company attributes the drop to lower contributions from development properties.
