Keppel Corporation Limited (KCL) recently announced that its share price has reached a new all-time high after a steady rise since the start of the year. Investors are attributing the surge in KCL’s share price to its strong financial performance, as well as its diversification into new markets. KCL is a Singapore-based conglomerate with businesses in the offshore and marine, property and infrastructure, energy, and investments sectors.
Strong Financial Performance
KCL reported strong financial performance for the first half of 2020, despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The company reported a net profit of $308 million for the six months ended June 2020, an increase of 11.4% compared to the same period last year. The company’s revenue also increased by 3.3% to $3.7 billion.
Diversifying into New Markets
KCL’s strong financial performance is largely attributed to its diversification into new markets. The company has invested in emerging markets such as India, Vietnam and the Middle East. It has also made significant investments in the renewable energy sector, including solar and wind energy.
KCL is optimistic about its future prospects and expects its financial performance to remain strong in the coming years. The company is confident that its investments in new markets and renewable energy will help it to achieve further growth.
