Jason Marine Group - Company Background

  • Jason Marine Group (SGX:5PF) is a marine electronic systems integrator operating in marine and offshore O&G industries. The Group focuses on marine communication, navigation and automation systems and carries an extensive range of electronic equipment from proprietary brand manufacturers.

  • All vessels (e.g. commercial vessels and naval vessels) and offshore platforms (e.g. drilling rigs and FPSO) are required to install navigation and communication systems on board for safety reasons.

  • See report attached below for further details.

Higher oil price drives construction and utilisation of offshore platforms.

  • Oil price is up more than 50% this year to reach a 3-year high of Jason Marine’s project orders are mainly from the O&G industry, accounting for 74% of revenue.

Lower vessel calls affects volume of maintenance work.

  • Jason Marine typically carries out maintenance work on the communication systems onboard the vessels when the ships call at the ports. System maintenance services have faced disruptions from lower vessel calls as a result of worldwide port congestions.
  • Year-to-September, the number of vessel calls declined 12.6% at the Singapore ports, after falling 30% in 2020. Maintenance revenue is poised to improve when the delays at ports are resolved.

Rising project value per vessel.

  • Ship crews stranded at sea due to port congestions and anti-virus measures have fuelled the need for more and smarter communication and navigation systems onboard for the welfare of the seafarers. In addition, newbuilding orders are trending towards bigger vessels to transport more crew and cargo. We believe these will drive higher project value for new orders.
