On Tuesday, SATS Ltd (SGX: S58), a provider of food and gateway services solutions, is pencilled in to go ex-dividend.
SATS is dishing out 6.0 Singapore cents per share for its second quarter.
For the three months ended 30 September 2018, revenue rose 4.2% to S$453.1 million due to improved performances from both the Food Solutions division and Gateway Services division.

Revenue for the latest quarter increased by 13% to S$118.4 million, primarily due to higher revenue from its real estate solutions division.
