1. Monday, 1September 2014

Captii Ltd (SGX: U18), an investment holding company with investments primarily concentrated on technology and telecoms businesses which operate under the brands of Unifiedcomms and GlobeOSS, will be going ex-dividend today.

The firm is dishing out 0.2 Singapore cents per share for its second quarter where revenue shot up 27.1% to S$6.3 million and net profit notched up by 2% to S$445,000. The increase in revenue was on the back of increased sales in mobile value-added-services and operation support systems.

Captii closed at S$0.045 last Friday, translating to a price-to-earnings (PE) ratio of 14 and a dividend yield of 4.4%.

2. Tuesday, 2 September 2014

Saizen Real Estate Investment Trust (SGX: T8JU), which owns real estate used mainly for residential and residential-related purposes in Japan, will be going ex-dividend on Tuesday.

It is paying 3.1 Singapore cents per unit for the fourth quarter of the financial year ended 30 June 2014. In that year, revenue went up by 3.4% to JPY4 billion while net property income increased by 2.6% to JPY2.7 billion. Both gains were fuelled by the REIT’s property acquisitions.

Kingsmen Creatives is giving out 1.5 Singapore cents per ordinary share for the second quarter. For the first half of 2014, revenue had increased by 11.8% year-on-year to S$136.9 million due to growth it its Exhibitions & Museums and Retail & Corporate Interiors business divisions. Net profit, however, dropped 18.2% to S$6.2 million on the back of a one-off provision of S$1.5 million for costs and damages related to an ongoing law suit in China and higher overheads from increased business.

The shares last changed hands at $0.93 last Friday. At that price, the company is trading at a historical PE ratio of 11 and is sporting a dividend yield of 4.3%.
