ST Engineering announces its third quarter 2015 results on 6th November 2015. Revenue fell 3% to $1.50 billion from $1.55 billion as compared to the same quarter last financial year. Profit Before Tax (PBT) is expected to be lower than 2014.
Revenue By Sector
The revenue for the Aerospace sector is $506 million, up 8% as compared to 3Q2014.
The was due to higher engines output in the Component/Engine Repair & Overhaul business group that
was partially offset by lower revenue from the Aircraft Maintenance & Modification business group.
Revenue for the Electronics sector is $429 million, up 21%. Three business groups (Large-Scale Systems Group, Communication & Sensor Systems Group, Software Systems Group) recorded higher sales mainly due to higher value project milestone completions and increased satellite communication product sales.
Revenue for Land Systems sector fell 11% to $319 million. This was due to lower revenue from Munitions & Weapons business group.
Revenue for Marine sector fell 39% to $205 million. Marine industry remains tough due to weak oil prices and slowing demand.
