Dividend

Since its listing in 2011, 800 Super has been consistently paying dividends to its shareholders. For FY2017, the Board has proposed final dividend of S$0.03 per ordinary share, subject to approval by shareholders at the next annual general meeting to be convened.

Business Outlook

The industry which the Group is operating, i.e. the provision of waste management, cleaning and conservancy and horticultural services is highly competitive. As a comprehensive environmental solutions provider, the Group is competing on the basis of the range and quality of services provided, timeliness of service delivery and pricing.

The development of the WTE plant at Tuas South is near completion and is expected to operate by the end of 2017. When operational, the WTE plant will supply green electrical energy to the depot and the to-be-completed material recovery/sludge treatment facility, generating new revenue streams and cost savings to the Group.

We have made capital commitments for the key equipment relating to the sludge treatment facility. The construction work is currently in progress and is targeted to complete in the second quarter of 2018. Upon completion, the treatment facility will treat and dispose sludge from water reclamation plants operated by the Public Utilities Board.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Group is expected to remain profitable for the next financial reporting period.
