ST Eng'g net profit to rise 21% in 2024 on $7.9b order book

An analyst projects continued growth for ST Engineering driven by its businesses.

Projections from RHB Group showed that ST Engineering will continue to grow, with its net profit seen to reach $713m in 2024.

This will be a 21.57% increase from $586.5m the company reported in 2023.

In a report, RHB Group analyst Shekhar Jaiswal said near-term earnings growth is expected to remain strong as its commercial aerospace business “benefits from higher MRO earnings on the back of better aviation traffic, higher nacelle sales, and improved profits for its passenger-to-freighter (PTF) conversion business.”

He also expects earnings from urban solutions and satcom units to improve, fueled by right-sizing exercise and earnings contribution from its TransCore acquisition.
