Review of results for the third quarter ended 30 September 2018 as compared to corresponding quarter ended 30 September 2017

Group Revenue

The Group achieved consolidated revenue of S$9.041 million for the quarter ended 30 September 2018 ("Q3 2018"), an increase of 106.8% against the revenue recorded in the corresponding quarter ended 30 September 2017 ("Q3 2017"). The increase in Group revenue for Q3 2018 is attributable to the improved revenue performance of both GlobeOSS and Unifiedcomms.

GlobeOSS posted revenue of S$5.996 million in Q3 2018, an increase of 310.7% from revenue of S$1.460 million recorded in Q3 2017. This increase was driven by higher revenues from both system sale and managed service contracts.

Unifiedcomms posted revenue of S$3.045 million in Q3 2018, an increase of 4.6% from the S$2.912 million recorded in Q3 2017. This increase was driven by higher revenue from managed service contracts

The Group's sales mix in Q3 2018 showed a decrease in the proportionate contribution of revenue of a recurring nature, with revenue from managed service contracts representing 42.7% of the Group's total revenue in Q3 2018 as compared to 78.4% in Q3 2017. The lower relative contribution of managed service contracts to the Group's sales mix in Q3 2018 is mainly attributable to the significant improvement in system sale contract revenues of the Group, which had increased 449.6% from S$0.943 million in Q3 2017 to S$5.183 million in Q3 2018.

Group Gross Profit and Gross Profit Margins

The Group posted gross profit of S$3.547 million in Q3 2018, an increase of 43.9% from the S$2.465 million recorded in Q3 2017, however gross profit margin was lower at 39.2% as compared to 56.4% in Q3 2017. This was primarily due to lower gross profit margin realised on Group's system sale contract revenues, which declined from 73% in Q3 2017 to 28.1% in Q3 2018. The decline in gross profit margin is mainly attributable to the higher proportionate contribution of system sale contract revenues by GlobeOSS, which generally delivers lower gross profit margin as a result of its typically higher third party costs.

Gross profit margin recorded by the Group on its managed service contract revenues however increased to 54.2% in Q3 2018 from 51.8% in Q3 2017. This increase in gross profit margin was mainly due to lower third-party costs on certain managed service contracts.

Interest Income

The Group recorded interest income of S$0.012 million in Q3 2018, 63.6% lower against the S$0.033 million recorded in Q3 2017. This is mainly attributable to lower cash and cash equivalents as a result of on-going investment in other financial assets by the Group's venture investment subsidiary, Captii Ventures Pte Ltd.

Other gains

The Group recorded other gains of S$0.198 million in Q3 2018, 79% lower against the S$0.942 million recorded in Q3 2017. This was mainly due to lower fair value gain assessed on the Group's venture investment portfolio.

Other Items of Expense

The Group recorded total expenses of S$2.075 million in Q3 2018, 5.7% lower than the S$2.201 million incurred in Q3 2017. This is mainly attributable to lower net foreign exchange loss as a result of a favourable exchange rate movement of USD and MYR against SGD, the Group's reporting currency.

This decrease in foreign exchange loss was partly offset by:-

* Higher technical support expenses recorded in Q3 2018, due to an increase in technical support headcounts; and
* Higher administrative recorded in Q3 2018, as a result of higher professional fees incurred.

Group Net Profit and EBITDA

The Group recorded higher net profit of S$1.265 million and EBITDA of S$1.953 million in Q3 2018 as compared to S$0.956 million in net profit and S$1.504 million in EBITDA recorded by the Group in Q3 2017. The higher net profit and EBITDA results recorded in Q3 2018 are mainly attributable to the flow-down effects of higher revenue and lower total expenses recorded in Q3 2018.

Review of results for the nine months ended 30 September 2018 as compared to corresponding period ended 30 September 2017

Group Revenue

The Group achieved consolidated revenue of S$22.710 million for the nine months ended 30 September 2018 ("9M 2018"), an increase of 65.5% against the revenue recorded in the corresponding period ended 30 September 2017 ("9M 2017"). The increase in Group revenue for 9M 2018 is attributable to the improved revenue performance of GlobeOSS.

GlobeOSS posted revenue of S$14.066 million in 9M 2018, an increase of 186.6% from the S$4.908 million recorded in 9M 2017. This improvement in revenue was driven by higher revenues from both system sale and managed service contracts.

Unifiedcomms however recorded revenue of S$8.644 million in 9M 2018, a decrease of 1.9% from the S$8.815 million recorded in 9M 2017. This decrease in revenue was due to lower revenue achieved from system sale contracts that was only partly mitigated by improved revenue from managed service contracts.

The Group's sales mix in 9M 2018 showed a decrease in the proportionate contribution of revenue of a recurring nature, with revenue from managed service contracts representing 47.8% of the Group's total revenue in 9M 2018 as compared to 70.6% in 9M 2017. The lower contribution of managed service contracts to the Group's sales mix in 9M 2018 was mainly contributed by the improvement in system sale contract revenues of the Group, which had increased 194.4% from S$4.028 million in 9M 2017 to S$11.857 million in 9M 2018.

Gross Profit and Gross Profit Margins

The Group posted gross profit of S$8.531 million in 9M 2018, an increase of 14.9% from the S$7.423 million recorded in 9M 2017. Gross profit margin was however lower at 37.6%, compared to 54.1% achieved in 9M 2017. This was primarily due to lower gross profit margin realised on Group's system sale contract revenues, which declined from 54.5% in 9M 2017 to 22.1% in 9M 2018 . The decline in gross profit margin is mainly attributable to the higher proportionate contribution of system sale contract revenues by GlobeOSS, which generally delivers lower gross profit margin as a result of its typically higher third party costs.

Gross profit margin recorded by the Group on its managed service contract revenues however increased to 54.5% in 9M 2018 from 53.9% in 9M 2017. This increase in gross profit margin was mainly due to lower third-party costs on certain managed service contracts.

Interest Income

The Group recorded interest income of S$0.037 million in 9M 2018, 65.1% lower against the S$0.106 million recorded in 9M 2017. This is mainly attributable to lower cash and cash equivalents as a result of on-going investment in other financial assets by the Group's venture investment subsidiary, Captii Ventures Pte Ltd.

Other gains

The Group recorded other gains of S$0.2 million in 9M 2018, 78.8% lower against the S$0.945 million recorded in 9M 2017. This was mainly due to lower fair value gain assessed on the Group's venture investment portfolio.

Other Items of Expense

The Group recorded total expenses of S$5.759 million in 9M 2018, 4.1% lower than the S$6.005 million incurred in 9M 2017. This is mainly attributable to a lower foreign exchange loss recorded in 9M 2018, as a result of a favourable exchange rate movement of USD against SGD, the Group's reporting currency.

The decrease in foreign exchange loss was partly offset by:-

* Higher technical support expenses recorded in 9M 2018, due to an increase in technical support headcounts; and
* Higher administrative recorded in 9M 2018, as a result of higher professional fees incurred.

Net Profit and EBITDA

The Group recorded higher net profit of S$2.333 million and EBITDA of S$3.805 million in 9M 2018 as compared to S$1.882 million in net profit and S$3.217 million in EBITDA recorded by the Group in 9M 2017. The higher net profit and EBITDA results recorded in 9M 2018 are mainly attributable to the flow-down effects of higher revenue and lower total expenses recorded in 9M 2018.

Review of the Group's financial position as at 30 September 2018 as compared to the Group's financial position as at 31 December 2017

Non-cash current assets of the Group increased from $20.426 million as at 31 December 2017 to S$20.468 million as at 30 September 2018. This 0.2% increase in non-cash current assets was mainly due to increase in inventories and other asset. This increase was partly offset by decrease in trade and other receivables of the Group, as a result of collections received in 2018 relating to trade receivables from late 2017.

Total non-current assets of the Group increased from S$26.232 million as at 31 December 2017 to S$27.240 million as at 30 September 2018. This 3.8% increase in noncurrent assets is mainly attributable to increase in investment in other financial assets and an associate, made by the Group's venture investment subsidiary, Captii Ventures Pte Ltd.

Total liabilities of the Group decreased from S$13.843 million as at 31 December 2017 to S$11.798 million as at 30 September 2018. This 14.8% decrease in total liabilities is attributable to the decrease in trade and other payables, following repayment made accordingly to the vendors. This impact was partly mitigated by increase in other liabilities.

Review of the Group's cash flow for the quarter and nine months ended 30 September 2018 as compared to the corresponding period ended 30 September 2017

The Group's net cash flow from operations for Q3 2018 was slightly higher at S$1.874 million, as compared to S$1.857 million for Q3 2017.

The Group's net cash flow from operations for 9M 2018 was S$2.292 million, as compared to S$3.936 million for 9M 2017, a decrease of 41.7%. This decrease was primarily due to an unfavourable working capital change of S$1.315 million for 9M 2018, in contrast with the favourable working capital change of S$1.654 million for 9M 2017, which was mainly caused by lower collections of trade receivables for 9M 2018 as compared to the corresponding period in 2017.

The Group's net cash flow used in investing activities for Q3 2018 was S$0.43 million, as compared to S$1.301 million for Q3 2017. The lower net cash used in investing activities was mainly due to the lower volume of venture investments made in the current quarter as compared to Q3 2017.

The Group's net cash flow used in investing activities for 9M 2018 was S$1.974 million, as compared to S$2.735 million for 9M 2017. The lower net cash used in investing activities was mainly due to the lower volume of venture investments and investment in plant and equipment for new managed service contracts made in 9M 2018 versus 9M 2017.

The Group's net cash flow used in financing activities for Q3 2018 amounted to S$0.489 million as compared to S$0.817 million for Q3 2017. The lower net cash used in financing activities was mainly due to the lower dividend payout to equity holders of the Company.

The Group's net cash flow used in financing activities for 9M 2018 was S$1.006 million, as compared to S$1.884 million for 9M 2017. The lower net cash used in financing activities was mainly due to lower dividend payout to both equity holders of the Company and Non-Controlling Interest.

Commentary

The directors and management of the Group expect the remainder financial year 2018 to be challenging but remain optimistic about growth prospects.

Although the growth in system sale business of GlobeOSS in 2017 and the current year to date had significantly augmented the slower than desired growth of the Group's managed service contract portfolio, uncertainty and hence lumpiness is still to be expected in the contribution of system sale contracts to the Group's future results.

The need for management to continue to strengthen the Group's managed service contract portfolio and to continue to grow its venture investment portfolio as the basis for delivering steady, if not rapid yet sustainable future growth, remains.

The growing interest and opportunity in internet-driven application services for enterprises, fintech as well as internet and handset-app delivered digital media will guide the Group's venture investment activities. The Group's venture investment plans in the year ahead will continue to focus primarily on these growth businesses in the SEA region and will complement the organic growth strategy in place for the Unifiedcomms and GlobeOSS businesses.
