SingTel In a press release that was put out a short while ago, SingTel is reporting double-digit growth for its second quarter on "robust performance" across all sectors.

The main points of the report are summarised by

  • Net profit up 19%, up 22% in constant currency
  • Underlying net profit increases 11%, up 14% in constant currency
  • Strength in core business and focused execution drive earnings growth
  • Solid performance in Singapore Consumer and Enterprise businesses
  • Acquisitions add scale to Group Digital L!fe
  • Regional mobile associates' pre-tax earnings grow 26%, up 33% in constant currency
  • Interim dividend maintained at 6.8 cents per share

The press release shows that "Revenue rose 4% to S$4.31 billion from strong performances in ICT services, mobile data growth and equipment sales in Singapore and Australia, and higher digital marketing revenue."

Net profit increased 11% to S$979 million, but excludes gain of S$59 million - mainly from the dilution the equity stake in SingPost. If that had not been so, the profit would have been 14%, the report suggests.

A fuller outline of the Group's performance for Q2 2014, is available in the SingTel Press Release.
