CWT’s earnings dip 3% to $108.9m in FY15

Blame it on its commodity marketing arm’s weak contributions.

CWT bagged an FY15 attributable profit of $108.9m, a 3% dip from the preceding year, on back of a 30% YoY crash in revenue to $9.93b.

According to a report by OCBC, the revenue drop is due mainly to a 36.9% YoY decline in revenue of CWT’s commodity marketing (CM) business, which in turn was a result of lower trading volume of naphtha and a general drop in commodity prices amidst a downturn in commodity sector.

On the flip side, its CM, engineering, and financial services segments respectively saw a 0.2 ppt, 0.7 ppt, and 21.5 ppt uptick in their respective gross profit margins.

Meanwhile, FY15 also saw a provision of $8.8m recorded as a result of the Tianjin blasts in 12 August 2015.
