Keppel Corp. (BN4.SG) on Thursday reported a 21% drop in second-quarter net profit, in part because of lower profit contributions from its offshore-and-marine division and its infrastructure unit.
The Singapore-listed company said net profit for April-June fell to 161 million Singapore dollars (US$117.6 million) from S$205 million a year ago. This was also below market expectations of a S$215.4 million net profit, according to a FactSet estimate.
