Sun Hung Kai Properties' FY underlying profit rises 17 pct

HONG KONG, Sept 13 (Reuters) - Sun Hung Kai Properties , the most valuable developer in one of the world’s priciest property markets, reported a 17.1 percent jump in full-year underlying profit on Thursday, in line with analyst estimates.

Higher contributions from property sales and rental income buoyed the property giant, which raked in an underlying profit of HK$30.40 billion ($3.87 billion) in the year ended June 30, versus HK$25.97 billion the previous year.

The underlying profit excludes the net effect of changes in the valuation of investment properties. The reported figure matched an average forecast of HK$29.74 billion by 16 analysts polled by Thomson Reuters Smart Estimates.
