Let's compare a few different aspects of AEM Holdings Ltd (SGX: AWX) and UMS Holdings Limited (SGX: 558) to determine which is the better electronics company to own.
Venture Corporation Ltd's (SGX: V03) share price has nearly halved since April last year. Is now a good time to take a closer look at the company?
SINGAPORE (Feb 26): UMS Holdings, the precision engineering group which specialises in the manufacture of semiconductor components, reported 4Q18 earnings of $9.3 million, down 41% from a year ago. Revenue in 4Q18 declined 33% to $25.9 million due mainly to a 36% decline in the semiconductor segment which was offset by a 63% rise in sales surge from its others segment comprising mainly revenue from subsidiaries Starke Singapore and Kalf Engineering. Ssales from semiconductor integrated systems dropped 57% for the quarter to $7.8 million from $18.2 million in 4Q17.
Locally-listed UMS Holdings (UMS) recently announced that total revenue for the third quarter ended 30 September 2018 fell 42 percent year-on-year (YoY) to $7.7 million while net profit fell 44 percent to $7.6 million compared to a year ago. Despite the slump in both revenues and earnings, there remains one bright spot which was the steady gross margin of 59 percent achieved in both the current quarter.
