Big boon for S'pore businesses with operations in US

US companies will reassess foreign ops but an exodus of US firms out of Singapore unlikely
FRI, DEC 22, 2017 - 5:50 AM YASMINE YAHYA yasminey@sph.com.sg

THE cut in the United States' headline corporate tax rate is a big boon to Singapore companies operating there, but its impact on inbound investment flows remains to be seen, analysts say.
A decision by the US Senate to approve a tax bill that cuts the corporate tax rate from 35 per cent to 21 per cent will make a big difference to Singapore companies with investments there, especially as Singapore does not have a tax treaty with the US, noted Withers KhattarWong partner Eric Roose.
Singapore firms The Business Times spoke to agreed with this assessment. ST Engineering spokeswoman Lina Poa said: "The US corporate tax rate cut to 21 per cent from 35 per cent will benefit ST Engineering as our US subsidiaries contribute a significant share of our total group revenue."
The US business accounted for 23 per cent of ST Engineering's S$6.68 billion revenue in 2016.
"Any investments that we make are evaluated on their strategic fit and other factors including after-tax returns. We welcome the US tax overhaul and will continue to evaluate investment opportunities that fit our business strategy," Ms Poa added.
Mapletree Investments told The Business Times: "This is a positive development on reduction of corporate tax rate and we are still studying the other changes in detail."
Centurion Corp chief executive Kong Chee Min added: "For Centurion, investment decisions are driven by many considerations such as demand-supply dynamics, availability of quality assets that meet investment criteria, etc."
As part of the firm's strategy for sustainable growth, it will continue to selectively look for investment opportunities in the US and other key education hubs for student accommodation, he added.
But while the tax cut could boost investment flows into the US, the question for Singapore is whether US companies might now reevaluate their investments here.
After all, as Mr Roose noted, the difference between the US and Singapore's corporate tax rates is now just 4 percentage points.
"The general effect overall will be that US companies will do more things in the US and bring their profits back. Companies will begin to reassess their global structures and whether they really need foreign operations, or as much as they have now," he said.
"They will likely study whether the cost of operating in that country is still offset by the tax savings now."
However, he added that there is unlikely to be an exodus of US companies out of Singapore, as the Republic is the Asian headquarters for many.
"The options for Asian headquarters today is a fight between Hong Kong and Singapore, and it comes down more and more to where people want to live, and increasingly US companies would rather have their headquarters in Singapore. So I think Singapore will continue to be important operationally."
Mizuho Bank senior economist Vishnu Varathan added that companies will take into account more than just tax rates when deciding whether to maintain, increase or decrease investments in a particular country.
"There's speculation on how the US tax cut will impact where US companies operate, but that's not just a function of tax. And many US firms are already well established here, with a supply chain across Asean and the Asean market is here, so the impact will not be immediate."
DBS Group Research chief economist Taimur Baig said in a report on Thursday that the US tax cut is a bigger risk for Europe and Latin America than Asia.
"MNCs that were, on the margin, considering offshoring some production may pause to take advantage of the lower domestic rates, but the factors of production that are Asia-oriented, especially those related to the electronics supply chain, are very unlikely to move back to the US, in our view. The labour cost advantages, economies of scale, and the component ecosystem is well engrained in Asia, with little risk of foreign direct investment diversion to the US."

Wed, Jan 17, 2018 - 7:24 PM Rachel Mui rachmui@sph.com.sg

SINGAPORE Technologies (ST) Engineering's aerospace arm, ST Aerospace, secured new contracts worth S$510 million in the fourth quarter last year, totalling S$2.8 billion for 2017. These contracts are for services ranging from airframe maintenance and landing gears repair to pilot training.
The airframe maintenance contracts include multi-year agreements to provide checks for Boeing aircraft including the 777 and 747, as well as support for other platforms, ST Engineering said in a press statement on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, other maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO) contracts clinched in Q4 2017 include agreements for ATR72-500 shipsets; landing gear repair for military planes; extension of engine wash services for existing customers; as well as Boeing 787 component support over 15 years for Gulf Air, which was announced in November.
In the non-MRO related segment, contracts won during the quarter include a three-year pilot training agreement from a new customer.
ST Engineering added that the above developments are not expected to have any material impact on the consolidated net tangible assets per share and earnings per share of ST Engineering for the current financial year.
The counter closed at S$3.31 apiece on Wednesday, unchanged from the previous day's close.

ST Electronics unit bags US$72m contract to supply smart sensor network
Mon, Jan 22, 2018 - 5:07 PM Wong Kai Yi kaiyiw@sph.com.sg

SINGAPORE Technologies Electronics (ST Electronics) announced on Jan 22 that its unit, Telematics Wireless, has been awarded a contract worth US$72 million for the supply of a smart sensor network to Israeli wireless automatic meter manufacturer Arad Technologies.
Under the contract, Telematics Wireless will supply automatic meter reading (AMR) radio transceivers for Arad's AMR solutions over six years.
The AMR radio transceivers supplied through this contract will be deployed with Arad's AMR solutions in various global markets, and together with Arad's smart management software, will provide precise monitoring of all utility vital signs, and will alert utility providers to faults such as leakages.
Radio transceivers are a key part in smart meters, which are used to monitor water, electricity and gas usage.
ST Electronics says its AMR radio transceivers are able to operate up to 10 years on an internal battery, and are resistant to radio interference.
The transceivers incorporate all electronics, battery and antennae in the meter register without the need for connecting external wires, which the company says reduces installation and maintenance costs.
When fully deployed by Telematics Wireless at the end of 2021, the sensors will join the more than 15 million wireless sensors currently installed in cities globally, said ST Electronics.
Ravinder Singh, president of ST Electronics, said the company has embedded advanced technology into water resource management systems to help improve city planning, operational efficiencies and realise cost savings.
"We are pleased to collaborate with Arad Technologies to deliver smart city solutions that transform cities efficiently and power smart city planning," he added.

Singapore Airshow 2018: ST Aerospace's JV wins contract for A321 passenger-to-freighter conversion from Vallair
Wed, Feb 07, 2018 - 3:30 PM Nisha Ramchandani nishar@sph.com.sg

ST Aerospace subsidiary, Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW), has landed a contract from Vallair Solutions Sārl (Vallair) to convert 10 A321-200 passenger aircraft to 14-pallet freighters (P2F).
The first aircraft will be inducted in the last quarter of 2018, scheduled for redelivery by end of 2019. A value for the deal was not revealed.
Gregoire Lebigot, chief executive of aviation company Vallair, said: "We see a huge potential in the A321P2F, not only as a replacement of the B757 freighter, but as a key tool for the cargo industry to achieve the projected growth rate of the air freight market in general - in particular, driven by express services and e-commerce."
Lim Serh Ghee, president of ST Aerospace added: "As the e-commerce and express market continues to grow, our investments in new freighter conversion programmes will allow us to seize the opportunities created by the uptick in freighter demand. While offering a strong proposition with its unique container position in the lower deck, the A321P2F will also complement our other freighter solutions to provide customers with a range of options."
EFW is a 55:45 joint venture between ST Aerospace and planemaker Airbus.
The A321P2F conversion programme is the first in its size category to offer containerised loading in both the main deck - up to 14 container positions - and lower deck, with up to 10 container positions. It has a payload-range capability that can carry up to 27.9 tonnes over 2,300 nautical miles.
Other P2F works carried out by ST Aerospace and EFW for Airbus freighters include the A330 which has two variants - the A330-200P2F and the larger A330-300P2F. EFW redelivered the first A330-300 freighter in December last year.

ST Engineering divests 5% stake in ST Aerospace Guangzhou for US$7m
Thu, Feb 08, 2018 - 8:17 PM Vivien Shiao vshiao@sph.com.sg

SINGAPORE Technologies Engineering (ST Engineering) announced after trading hours on Thursday that it is divesting its 5 per cent stake in ST Aerospace (Guangzhou) Aviation Services Company, a joint venture with Guangdong Airport Authority, to Japan Airlines for a consideration of US$7 million.
The consideration was arrived at taking into account STA Guangzhou's current performance, net asset value and growth potential in Guangzhou's Baiyun International Airport, according to a filing by ST Engineering.
Upon completion of the deal - which is subject to customary closing conditions - ST Aerospace and Guangdong Airport Authority will each own 44 per cent and 51 per cent stake respectively in STA Guangzhou, while Japan Airlines will become a strategic partner of the joint venture with a 5 per cent stake.
STA Guangzhou, set up in 2014, is an aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) station located within Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in China.
"Given Japan Airlines' strong reputation in quality and standards for both its services and demands placed on MRO providers, the new partnership will facilitate cross-learning and enable STA Guangzhou to enhance its own standing in safety and quality, and be better positioned for greater growth," said ST Engineering in a statement.
The divestment is not expected to have any material impact on the consolidated net tangible assets per share and earnings per share of ST Engineering for the current financial year.
