The post-closing adjustments and gain on disposal will not have a material impact on ST Engineering’s earnings for FY2023.

Singapore Technologies Engineering (ST Engineering) S63 says it has gained $32.4 million after the divestment of its US marine business.

The sum comes after the finalization of the post-closing adjustments under the securities purchase agreement. Following the post-closing adjustments, net working capital related adjustments amounting to US$29.6 million ($40 million) have been determined in favour of ST Engineering. As such, the group’s total gain on disposal is around $32.4 million. Of the sum, $16.3 million had been logged in the group’s FY2022 ended Dec 31, 2022, results based on the then-preliminary estimated net working capital-related adjustments in November 2022.
