While the acquisition of 2 transport solutions firms from the United States would provide the potential for higher earnings, S&P said the benefits will take some time to materialise. Shares of ST Engineering ended 0.2 per cent higher or S$0.10 at S$4.11 on Wednesday.
$Olam Group(VC2.SG)$ : Citing current market conditions because of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, the group's food ingredients unit OFI on Thursday said it no longer expects its planned initial public offering to take place in the second quarter of 2022.

Its shares closed flat at S$0.72 on Wednesday.
