“This was mainly due to lower progressive recognition of sales from the Singapore residential projects, mainly from Martin Modern as its sales and construction reaches its tail end during the financial year,” GuocoLand said. “The lower contribution from Martin Modern was
partially offset by higher progressive recognition of sales from the other Singapore residential projects and higher contribution from projects in Malaysia.”
