Sembmarine cuts net loss by 77% in H2 22
Its EBITDA improved to $12m in the second half of 2022.
After reporting a decline in its EBITDA in 2021, Sembcorp Marine (Sembmarine) posted a positive EBITDA in H2 2022 at $12m due to completion of key projects.
In a financial statement, Sembmarine said its net loss also declined 78% to $261m for FY 2022 from FY 2021 net loss of $1.1b.
“Residual COVID19 challenges contributed to one-off increases in costs in FY2022 due to project delays, additional consumables and man hours,” said Sembmarine.
Its net loss declined 77% to $118m in the second half of 2022 from $523m in the same period in 2021.
