    COSCO announces financial results for 2015

    COSCO Corporation (Singapore) Limited, a leading  ship repair & marine engineering and shipping group, today announced its financial  results for the full year ended 31 December 2015. 

    Group turnover decreased 17.4% to $3.5 billion in FY 2015 from $4.3 billion in FY  2014 owing to decrease in shipyard and shipping revenue.  Turnover from shipyard operations fell 17.3% to $3.5 billion in FY 2015 from $4.2  billion in FY 2014, mainly attributed to lower revenue contribution from marine  engineering, partially offset by an increase in revenue from ship building and ship repair.

    The Group delivered 21 projects in FY 2015,  namely 6 platform supply vessel, 9  bulk carriers, 2 anchor handling tug supply vessels, 1 oil tanker, 1 floating  accommodation unit and 2 semi-submersible accommoda tion vessels. Turnover from dry bulk shipping and other businesses decreased 25.0% from $52.5  million in FY 2014 to $39.4 million in FY 2015 on l ower charter rates. 

    The Group swung into a gross loss of $214.8 million in FY 2015 from gross profit of  $291.0 million in FY 2014 on lower revenues and hig her inventory write-down which  increased $184.8 million to $309.3 million in FY 20 15 due mainly to the impairment  made for DP3 Deepwater Drillship (DDD), which is cu rrently available for lease or  sale. 

    Other income decreased 23.9% to $81.4 million in FY  2015 mainly due to lower sales  value of scrap materials and lower interest income.  Administrative expenses increased  $348.8 million to $522.5 million mainly due to the increase in allowance for  impairment of trade and other receivables of $354.5 million to $380.3 million which  relates mainly to construction contracts on modules  of drillship and FPSO for certain Brazilian customers with uncertainties in their pro ject status. Interest expense increased 30.7% to $166.9 million in FY 2015 due to higher ba nk borrowings used to fund  shipyard operations. 

    As a result, the Group recorded net loss attributab le to equity holders of the Company  of $570.0 million in FY 2015 as compared to net profit of $20.9 million in FY 2014.
