4Q results are out though not much information can be gleaned from it about the shift towards to GCM. We will have to wait for the tender results for the 3rd contract to be out before we can get an idea of how much 'revenue' lies in the 20% share of the bus industry. The EBIT margin on an asset heavy model (which includes non-fare income) is merely 2.7%. No news on the upcoming disposal of bus assets to LTA (if any).

Trains reported a quarterly EBIT loss of $2.7 million in 4Q 2015 thus dragging its FY EBIT to $3.2 million profit . I expect this to improve once DTL gains sufficient ridership - aided by the opening of DTL2.

Share price has been resilient despite market weakness. Dividend yield is 1.3%. Ideally, this will improve from FY 2017 onward.

03 Jun 2016 09:00
By Zhaki Abdullah

SBS Transit, the largest bus operator here, yesterday said it would raise the monthly starting pay for its bus captains to $1,950, an increase of more than 9 per cent from the current $1,775.

Almost 10,000 SBS Transit employees, including 6,500 bus captains, will benefit from the new salary package, which comes after several months of negotiations between the bus operator and the National Transport Workers' Union (NTWU).

There are some thoughts about privatization of VICOM by CDG. It may take ~150-200mil to make a robust bid from CDG to take over the remaining ~33% stake it doesn't own - While it was pausible a few years ago, but i thought the chances are remote now, especially with the 600mil acquisition of LCR (300mil of cash). Also, CDG seems to signal that it prefers to allow the golden goose to continues to lay eggs, than bring it home from the market - with this record announcement of dividends.

So little.......

And LTA already said DTL ridership 470k. SBST still uses AVERAGE 270k for 2017. Sibei Jialat.

It's actually 470k average ridership after DTL3 opened in Oct-17, as shown in LTA's Press release.

To be fair, based on the same graph, DTL's 2017 average ridership should be more than 270k.

LTA to take over SBS Transit's rail operating assets from April 

Quote:
From April 1, the Land Transport Authority will take over ownership of the trains, signaling systems and other operating assets of North East Line and Sengkang and Punggol Light Rail Transit from SBS Transit.

This follows discussions that have taken place since 2011, and takes place about 1.5 years after SMRT's sale of its operating assets for the North South and East West lines, as well as the Bukit Panjang LRT to the Land Transport Authority.

This means the entire rail network here will be under the New Rail Financing Framework (NRFF), where the government owns the rail operating assets and relieves operators from heavy capital expenditure and fare revenue risk.

The LTA will acquire SBS Transit's rail operating assets at net book value, which is estimated to be about S$28.8 million (S$30.8 million with Goods and Services Tax) as at March 31, 2018.

The authority will make 60 per cent of the payment on April 1, and the remainder over the next two years.

SBS Transit will pay an undisclosed licence charge annually for the right to operate and earn revenues from the rail lines.

The framework ensures timely procurement of additional trains and other assets to improve reliability and keep pace with ridership growth, said LTA.

The industry becomes more contestable through shorter licence periods of 15 years (with a possible five-year extension), down from 30 to 40 years under the previous framework.

The NRFF was first implemented for the Downtown Line, also operated by SBS Transit, in 2011.
