Business Outlook
 Slowdown in North Asia to persist, but may bottom out soon. The slowdown in North Asiacontinues to hit the sales and net profit of FJB in 2QFY13. In our view, we believe this trend may bottom out by 4QFY13 in light of the encouraging economic data out from China. According to a research from Nielson, China consumer confidence rebounded to 108 in 4Q12 after bottoming out at 105 in 2Q12.

 Continued strong growth in Indonesia. Sales inIndonesia will continue to be one of the key drivers of growth for FJ Benjamin (FJB). Domestic sales inIndonesia increased 14% yoy. Thegroup intends to open another 11 stores in Indonesia in FY13.

 Improvement in inhouse brand, RAOUL. The group has resolved the issue of “fitting” in the in-house brand that has previously depressed business. Going forward, we believe RAOUL may see an improvement in its business with the increased international awareness of the brand afterKate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge) wore a patterned skirt from RAOUL during her visit in Singapore last year. RAOUL’s website page views increased from 355 to 2,596 views in the 24-hour period.

Financial results
 Below expectations. FJB reported a net profit of S$1.14m, down 75% yoy. This is mainly attributed to weakness in its North Asia timepiece business which saw a 36% decline in sales. Excluding the one-time gain on sale of leasehold property, FJB’s net profit is S$0.22m.
 Yoy revenue down 12%. Turnover for fashion and timepiece was down 1% and 30% yoy respectively. Gross margins remained stable at 43%. Other operating costs were lower, in line with the decline in sales, except for rental which rose 12% yoy.Advertising and promotionexpenses were also lowered in line with management’s cautious outlook.

Earnings Revision
 Tweaked earnings forecasts. We have reduced our FY13 and FY14…...

...with prices of the drinks set at about the same and with more or less identical set meals involving coffee and toast prices at the same level. The smaller cafes usually take their cues for pricing from the bigger chain cafes mentioned. In other markets such as restaurants, cleaning services companies, domestic retail banking, supermarkets and telecommunications, non-price competitions are easy to spot from the differentiated services they offer; often the fact that a new service or promotion becomes widespread after it is first started by a dominant player in the market shows that the firms are interdependent. Because of the small market size, most of these markets are dominated by just a few players. In banking, we only have OCBC, DBS and UOB while the telecommunications industry also features 2 giants, Singtel, Starhub and M1. Of course, there are exceptions to the market structure of oligopoly in Singapore. Many small firms operating in niche areas of small neighbourhoods actually behave in ways modeled by Monopolistic competition market structure. In markets for hawker fare in hawker centers, for basic healthcare service from General Practitioners and neighbourhood convenience stores, firms that are small and provides slightly differentiated goods and services dominates. Each of them has limited pricing power as a result of the fact that there are many of them in the same market. The monopolistic competition model explains the myriad of different small shops and stalls......

It is important to stress that the unit trusts included in this study consist of a combination of both passively-managed (tracker) and actively-managed funds. A tracker fund is categorized as passively managed, yet it is one of most efficient, due to the low fees paid for a simple tracking process. While there may be some differences in the investment approaches between these two groups of unit trusts, the funds selected in this study invest in a wide variety of economic sectors. Moreover, the main focus of the study is to compare the efficiency of Islamic and conventional unit......

Singapore Today

...growth. As a result of weaker demand and reluctance on the part of oil producers to cut supply. According to economists, the slump in global oil prices pulled down headline inflation in Singapore. Global crude oil prices have fallen in recent months to about US$60 per barrel on Tuesday, as a result of weaker demand and reluctance on the part of oil producers to cut supply.  They also said the headline inflation of -0.3 per cent did not come as a surprise as consumer prices in Singapore have been easing in recent months - as a result of effective monetary policy, as well as measures to curb rising property and car prices. Economists added that Singapore could see deflation again for the month of December in view of falling oil prices. UOB has projected inflation to come in at -0.5 per cent while OCBC is looking at a range of between 0 and -0.2 per cent. Should deflation persist, it can hurt the economic outlook. United Overseas Bank economist Francis Tan said: "One of the common-talked about potential negative impact of deflation or a deflationary spiral is that if consumers think that prices of one item is going to be cheaper or lower tomorrow, you will not want to spend today. “That is going to affect domestic consumption right now, that will be the detrimental effect of deflation, and that is actually what we are seeing in the Eurozone." However, economists said the chances of Singapore falling into a deflationary spiral are slim. Head of Treasury......

Business Strategy

...environment. Political/Legal: 1. Singapore is politically stable. The People’s Action Party (PAP) has been in power since its independence in 1965, and is likely to remain in power for some time to come. 2. The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is Singapore’s de-facto central bank. It regulates Singapore’s financial, insurance, securities, monetary and banking issues. 3. In 2003, the US Singapore Free Trade Agreement (USS FTA) was signed. This translates into increased trade between Singapore and the US, thus benefiting Singapore’s financial sector. 4. Between 1999 and 2003, the Singapore government brought about mergers and acquisitions in the banking industry, until only three local banking groups remained – DBS, UOB and OCBC. 5. In 1999, MAS deregulated the banking industry, and more foreign banks could set up operations in Singapore. This increased customer bargaining power, and made local banks more competitive. 6. The legal and regulatory framework in Singapore is well developed. This ensures that banks in Singapore do not engage in unfair practices. 7. Singapore has a fiscal policy that is favourable to businesses. Economic: 1. In the first and second quarters of the year 2007, Singapore’s economy grew by 6.1% and 8.2% respectively. In the third and fourth quarters of the year 2007, Singapore’s economy is expected to grow by 6.0% and 6.2% respectively.
