In the next couple of days, there will be a number of companies going ex-dividend. In other words, you need to own them before a particular date in order to receive their dividends. Let’s take a look at three of them randomly.

For the full year ended 31 March 2018, the company’s revenue grew 44.1% year-on-year to S$453.3 million, mainly on the back of higher revenue from property development. Meanwhile, its net profit surged 63.2% to S$56.4 million.

For the first half of 2018, revenue rose 32.4% to S$138.3 million while its net profit grew 43.4% to S$17.7 million. The improved top line was due to higher sales from its Equipment Systems Solutions business, partially offset by lower revenue from the Precision Components business.
