Sinfeng FY2018 revenue up despite 17% fall in marine fuel sales

27 Mar 2019

Sinfeng, the wholly-owned bunkering subsidiary of Hong Kong-listed Cosco Shipping International (Hong Kong) Co. Ltd, on Tuesday (26 March) said it saw a rise in revenue during its financial year (FY) ended 31st December 2018 despite selling lesser marine fuel.

Revenue from the marine fuel and other products segment of Sinfeng was HK $6.5 billion in FY 2018, 12% up from HK $5.8 billion in FY 2017.

Total sales volume of marine fuel products in FY 2018 was 1,927,346 metric tonnes (mt), 17% down from 2,315,346 mt when compared to FY 2017.

“The negative effect brought by the decrease in sales volume was offset by a considerable year-on-year increase in selling prices of marine fuel,” it said.
Sinfeng, meanwhile, points outs out investigations of suspected fraud involving Coastal Oil Singapore Pte Ltd. is still ongoing. 

A number of banks have alleged Coastal Oil Singapore has assigned receivables due from Sinfeng.

For the year ended 31 December 2017 and the six months ended 30 June 2018, the purchase costs from Coastal Oil Singapore by Sinfeng represented approximately 94% and 93% of the total purchase costs of Sinfeng respectively.

“As at the date of this announcement, Sinfeng is still in the process of conducting an investigation and seeking professional advice in respect of the aforesaid matters,” it states.

“Management is of the view that this event would not have a material impact to the Group’s financial statements for the year ended 31st December 2018.”

Singapore-based Coastal Oil Singapore Pte Ltd (UEN 200413975N) filed for liquidation as part of a creditors’ voluntary winding up operation on 13 December 2018.
