“The group is optimistic with the number of contract wins, signifying the long-term recovery and prospect of the operational sectors, and will continue to manage the costs and risks prudently so as to deliver value to shareholders,” says the company.

Citing a survey from the Singapore Economic Development Board, Nordic notes that the highlights the marine and offshore engineering sector is seeing better sentiment along with higher energy prices.

“The global inflationary pressures are also monitored to adjust for the impact on the necessary materials,” the company says.
