The company's senior management and board members answered questions about its associate companies, its mark-to-market accounting and its business operations and the firm published a long document on the Singapore Exchange website addressing criticims that had been made of it by several detractors including anonymous blogger Iceberg Research. In that presentation, it addressed criticisms about how it values associate companies such as Yancoal Australia (YAL.AU), its accounting of "inventory sales," its governance, debt and cash flow.

    18 August 2015 Singtel tops Governance

    18 August 2015 Singtel tops Governance and Transparency Index, with SGX a close second SINGAPORE Telecommunications (Singtel) has reclaimed its status as the Republic's most well-governed and transparent company, according to the Governance and Transparency Index (GTI) 2015 released on Tuesday.
    The telco edged up from second place last year to clinch the top spot. It had also topped the index from 2009 to 2012. This year, it beat its competitors with an overall score of 118 points.
    Singtel was lauded for upholding standards such as engaging professional consulting firms to independently evaluate remuneration packages for its directors and key management and disclosing the detailed policy on payment of dividends.
    Singapore Exchange (SGX) followed closely in second spot with 114 points, while Keppel Corporation was ranked third with 112 points. CapitaLand and DBS Group shared the fourth position with 111 points each.
    GTI 2015 ranked a total of 639 SGX-listed companies which released their 2014 annual reports by May 31, 2015.
    The index, launched in 2009, is jointly published every year by CPA Australia and NUS Business School's Centre for Governance, Institutions and Organisations, with The Business Times as a media partner.
    The GTI 2015 study also found significant overall progress in companies' governance practices, with the mean score increasing from 42.1 in 2014 to 47.6 this year. This is the highest year-on-year improvement since the index's inception.
    From next year, companies will be examined under a new framework, the Singapore Governance and Transparency Index (SGTI), given dramatic changes in the business-operating environment in recent years, and stakeholders seeking greater transparency and accountability from companies.
    Under SGTI, companies will continue to be assessed on matters relating to board, remuneration, accountability and audit, and transparency and investor relations.
    Additional factors such as how they handle a broader range of stakeholders, including employees, customers, suppliers, regulators and the community, will also be taken into account.
    The producers of this index will examine existing models of corporate governance assessments across the world in the next few months, and apply the relevant lessons to the index.

    18 August 2015 New home sales soared in July

    18 August 2015 New home sales soared in July New private home sales in Singapore increased more than four fold in July 2015 from the previous month, with a single development accounting for the majority of sales, reported Channel NewsAsia.
    Property developers sold 1,594 private homes in July, up from the 375 units in June, revealed data from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA).
    High Park Residences in Sengkang accounted for the bulk of sales, with 1,169 units sold at a median price of $989 psf. It was also the only new condominium project in the month.
    As for executive condominiums (ECs), developers moved 495 units in July from 110 units previously. This came mainly from two new projects which bolstered the number of units launched to 1,155 in July. There were no new ECs were launched in June.
    The Brownstone, located next to the upcoming Canberra MRT station, emerged as the best-selling EC project in July, with 187 units snapped up by buyers at a median price of $818 psf. The Vales in Anchorvale Crescent, another new launch, recorded 79 transactions at a median price of $788 psf.

    18 August 2015 Single project helps boost new private-home sales

    18 August 2015 Single project helps boost new private-home sales

    SINGAPORE — Sales of new private homes last month jumped to its highest level since the Total Debt Servicing Ratio (TDSR) came into effect two years ago, but the increase was driven by a single development and does not reflect an improvement in market sentiment, analysts noted.
    Developers sold 1,594 private residential units last month, more than four times the 375 units sold in June and thrice the 511 units offloaded in July last year, Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) data showed today (Aug 17).
    The huge increase was largely due to the launch of High Park Residences in Sengkang, where 1,169 of the 1,186 units offered were snapped up. Thanks to the response, the Fernvale condominium alone accounted for 73 per cent of total developer sales transactions last month.
    In total, developers launched 1,468 homes, up from 219 units in June..
    The main reason for the robust response to High Park Residences is affordability, analysts said.
    “The median launch price of S$989 psf was considered fairly attractive as it is below the psychological level of S$1,000 psf. Furthermore, High Park Residences offers a large number of small units,” said SLP International Property Consultants’ executive director Nicholas Mak.
    “Based on the caveats lodged, the median size of shoebox units in High Park Residences was 42 sq m with a median price of S$467,500. Private homes with prices below the threshold level of S$500,000 may appear to be an attractive deal.”
    Excluding High Park, new private-home sales totalled 425 units in July, which is “positive” as it surpassed June’s figures, noted Mr Desmond Sim, head of CBRE Research for Singapore and South-east Asia. Botanique at Bartley on Upper Paya Lebar Road led sales of previously launched projects with 63 units at a median of S$1,282 psf.
    In the executive condominium (EC) segment, transactions rose to 495 units last month from June’s 110. This was largely contributed by two new launches, which propped up the number of launched units to 1,155 in July.
    No ECs were launched in June. The Brownstone on Canberra Drive was the bestselling EC last month with 187 units sold at a median S$818 psf. The other new launch, The Vales, registered 79 transactions at a median S$788 psf.
    Despite July’s figures, analysts expect the private residential market to stay soft as long as the restrictions put in place since 2009 remain. Minister for National Development Khaw Boon Wan told TODAY last week that it is still not the right time to adjust the curbs.
    Besides TDSR, other measures blamed for the current subdued market include the Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty and Loan-to-Value limits.
    Adding pressure to the market are rising interest rates. The Singapore Interbank Offered Rate, commonly used to price mortgages here, has been climbing in anticipation of a rate hike in America.
    “This stunning performance in July is an exception and is not likely to cause a major shift in our forecast on overall transaction volume. I hold on to my previously held view that new sales in 2015 should remain at between 6,500 and 7,500 units,” said Dr Chua Yang Liang, JLL’s head of research for Singapore and South-east Asia. New home sales halved to 7,316 units in 2014 from a year earlier, the lowest since 2008, URA data showed.
    Analysts said this month’s sales figure might suffer as developers typically hold back launches during the Hungry Ghost month of the lunar calendar.
    Mr Mak said: “As primary market sales volume is highly correlated with launch volume, the former may fall in the coming months as the number of major condominium projects lined up for launch in the next 12 months would be lower than that in the previous 12 months.”

    18 August 2015 It's official: Singapore's lucrative manufacturing sector slips into r

    18 August 2015 It's official: Singapore's lucrative manufacturing sector slips into recession It contracted for three straight quarters.

    Manufacturing, once the stalwart of Singapore's miracle economy, has officially slipped into cyclical recession last quarter.
    According to DBS, the sector's output dropped by 18% in Q2, marking the third consecutive quarter of output contraction.
    Although sluggish global demand played a major role in the drop, DBS said that structural issues are also at play. These include higher labour costs, cutthroat regional competition and domestic restructuring.
    "Singapore manufacturers have been struggling over the past 3 years. The GDP share of manufacturing fell from 26% in 2004-06 to just 17% in 2013-
    2014. At the current pace of decline, the sector would become irrelevant before
    long," DBS said.

    "Beyond external headwinds and global uncertainties, Singapore manufacturers have been struggling with higher business costs, a domestic labour crunch and a strong SGD in recent years. Unwinding some of the restructuring measures could bring only short-term reliefs. In the longer term, unless Singapore can find ‘greener pastures’ in manufacturing, the structural decline seems likely to continue," DBS added.
