Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Roxy-Pacific Holdings' property sales in Singapore were steady, enabling it to report 1H2021 revenue of S$141.2 million (+20% y-o-y).

Net profit attributable to equity holders jumped 110% to S$5.9 million.

Its Property Development segment -- which pivoted to online marketing campaigns and virtual showrooms -- achieved a 27% increase in revenue to S$126.5 million, which constituted 90% of the Group’s turnover.

The growth was mainly due to revenue recognition from Singapore projects, especially RV Altitude, View at Kismis and 120 Grange.

Gross margin for property development was 14%.

RV Altitude PriceAll 140 units at RV Altitude have been sold. Total value is $218.8 million, of which $69.7 million has been recognised in Roxy-Pacific's financial statement up to end-June 2021. 


The Group had a total attributable pre-sale revenue of S$564.4 million as at end-June 2021, which will be progressively recognised from 2H2021 to FY2023.

This compares with S$539.4 million as at end-Dec 2020.

THL.agm3.14“We are pleased that our financial results have held resilient amidst the global pandemic, well-supported by a diversified portfolio of assets and a broad geographical reach.

“We have seen a steady growth in sales momentum for our Property Development segment, comprising mainly of residential developments in Singapore. We continue to be selective in landbank acquisition, with a greater focus on freehold developments that are well-located."

-- Teo Hong Lim, Executive Chairman & CEO

How Roxy-Pacific's remaining two business segments did in 1H2021: 

• Hotel operations: In this segment,  the Group continued to be affected by the COVID-19 outbreak as many countries had imposed border control measures, impacting the tourism industry.

Revenue from its owned hotels -- in Singapore, Japan and Maldives -- decreased by 29% to S$10.7 million from S$15.1 million in 1H2020.

Property Investment: The Group owns stakes in properties in Singapore, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

Revenue contribution from this segment increased 8% to S$4.0 million in 1H2021. The increase was mainly due to foreign currency appreciation from the rental income from NZI Centre.

Overall, the Group’s investment properties maintained a high level of occupancy at 81% as at 30 June 2021.
