Singapore Airlines Posts H1 Profit Of S$773 Mln

Fri Oct 25, 2002 8:11 pm

Singapore Airlines has posted a H1 profit of S$773Mln.

Concerns over global peace and the Bali terror bomb will shadow FY0203 H2.

Analysts say that a reboundin passenger traffic since January (April for the relevant Financial Year), and a tax rebate, and an abscence of an Air New Zealand investment write off, will help the H1 profits.

A graph below shows graphically estimated profits after EBITDAR (in other words, before the tax rebate).

Key Points:

Net Profit is S$773.8 Million / US$434.4 Million
Profit includes S$278 Million / US$156 Million tax rebate (Singapore reduced it's corporation tax)

Singapore Airlines Engineering Company's profit rose to S$101.3 million / US$57.23 Million (up 3.9%). There was less work on SIA planes, but SIAEC compensated by gaining work from non-SIA companies.

Virgin Atlantic posted a profit and the first half is stronger for them. They are recovering but the profit figure for VS is unclear so far.

Singapore Airport Terminal Services posted a 4.8% rise in profit to S$118.2 Million / US$67 Million.

Will have to look into it further but taking out the abnormals does not seem like such a good result.

Qantas will overtake them very soon in terms of profits made.

Long live Anzett.

Revenue was S$5228.9 Million / US$2935.11 Million (Up 10.5%)
Expenditure was S$4719.1 Million / US$2648.95 Million (Up 10.3%)

Operating profit for The Group is S$509.8 Million / US$286.163 Million (+12.8%)
Virgin Atlantic Airways and Eagle Air Services Asia made a profit of S$86.1 Million / US$48.33006 Million.

Profit before taxation is S$656.4 Million / US$368.454 Million. (Up 127.9%)
Profit after taxation (including rebate) is S$803.9 Million / US$451.249 Million (Up 384.6%)
Profit attributable to shareholders is S$773.5 Million / US$434.185 Million (Up 473.8%)

Unfortunately, SIA are not at liberty to say what profit Virgin Atlantic has made so far. However, the number so far is that Virgin made a profit of about S$34 Million / US$19.1 Million.

"Unfortunately, in an environment teeming with threats of war, whether we can continue to perform at the same level for the rest of the financial year rests largely on developments beyond our control," SIA said in a statement.

"The outlook beyond Christmas is less positive as the economic prospects for major markets appear weak and a number of carriers have added considerable freighter capacity."

Dr. Cheong is still retiring in 2003 "at some time".

Yes they said the profit for Virgin was a paltry $34M with the 6 month period coming usually a lot weaker. Hence maybe we can expect breakeven for Virgin at best. Not good for a $1.2Billion dollar investment. It is about time Dr Cheong and the board were brought to account for this disastrous investment.

Not too shabby overall, even with the extraordinary items. At least this time round there are no sudden writedowns, changes in depreciation, gains from long-disposed of assets, etc....

Qantaspower:
While SQ and QF have traditionally had strong profit margins, I hardly think they're engaged in a p***ing contest to show who has the higher/highest profits. As for the VS stake, it may not have turned out as planned for now, but it is still a long term play. It would be premature to nail Baldy (whoops.. Dr Cheong) for that investment at this point in time.
